José Alfredo Jiménez-Sandoval (Spanish pronunciation: ; 19 January 1926 – 23 November 1973) was a Mexican singer-songwriter of rancheras, whose songs are considered an integral part of Mexico's musical heritage. Jiménez was born in Dolores Hidalgo, Guanajuato. According to the singer Miguel Aceves Mejía, he did not play an instrument and did not even know the Spanish word for "waltz" or what "keys" his songs were in. Nonetheless, he composed more than 1,000 songs
My name José Jiménez, Mr. Dana would begin his routines, which today might ring as offensive - José being something of a dim bulb - but in the late 1950s, when he created the character, were regarded by many as hilarious. One of those routines made José a reluctant-sounding astronaut, in full spacesuit, bumbling through an interview. What is this called, a crash helmet? the interviewer says, pointing to his headgear. A few minutes into the routine, a guy in the front row began yelling out the straight man’s lines, Mr. Thompson wrote. It was Mr. Shepard, who joined Mr. Dana onstage but was laughing so hard that another Mercury astronaut, Wally Schirra, who was there, took over, followed by another, Deke Slayton. José became something of a mascot for the Mercury program, and Mr. Kapp became friendly with Mr. Shepard and others at NASA.
Bill Dana as Jose Jimenez on his NBC sitcom in the 1960s. He became a 'mascot' for the Mercury astronauts, wrote jokes for Steve Allen and Don Adams and penned one of the funniest 'All in the Family' episodes. Dana, who first appeared as Jimenez on The Steve Allen Plymouth Show, where he also worked as an Emmy-nominated head writer, died Thursday at his home in Nashville, Emerson College announced. He and a fellow alumnus founded the American Comedy Archives at the Boston school, fulfilling a lifelong goal to honor the study and appreciation of the comedic arts. On Garry Moore's variety program, Dana appeared as Jose the Astronaut, then recorded a comedy album with that material from a live show at the famed hungry i nightclub in San Francisco. He sent a test pressing of the disc to the original seven Mercury astronauts - and they loved it.
