James Anthony " Jimmy" TAPP
By Colleen TAPP, Tuesday, January 11, 2005 - Page A18
Television pioneer, husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, voice of Hercules. Born in Ottawa, April 18, 1918. Died November 20, 2004, of pneumonia in Oakville, Ontario, at 86.
Jimmy TAPP was born at the end of the First World War, the second of seven children born to George, Canadian Pacific Railway train conductor, and Kathleen TRAVERS, she from County Kildare, Ireland.
Jimmy loved to tell stories of his youth in Ottawa through the roaring Twenties and the great Depression. His favourite story was about buying his mom a box of coffee creams for Mother's Day and sharing them with every pal he met on the way home. There was only one left for his mom but she loved the story even more than coffee creams.
It was while serving overseas as an officer in the Royal Canadian Navy in the Second World War that he began his lifelong love of broadcasting and a career that spanned five decades. Jimmy hosted a closed-circuit radio show, spinning discs on board the H.M.C.S. Wasaga, and when the war was over, he studied radio broadcasting at Northwestern University in Chicago. During a training session at NBC, he met the lovely Mary Agnes MORONEY, and after a whirlwind 11-day courtship, married her in November, Jimmy and his new bride moved to Montreal, where he became a Canadian Broadcasting Corporation announcer, and had many successes as a radio executive. As his little sister, Shirley, said in his eulogy, Jimmy was born with a microphone in one hand and a business card in the other, but his real passion was performing. His talents were ideally suited to an emerging new technology that was in its infancy: television. He hosted the first show on CBMT, Montreal's Canadian Broadcasting Corporation English station, on January 10, 1954. Those early days of television were exciting, with only a channel or two; if you were watching in Montreal, you were probably watching Jimmy TAPP.
As host of The Tapp Room, the first television talk show of its kind in the mid-1950s, Jimmy interviewed every big star from New York to Hollywood, such as Bob Hope, Ed Sullivan, Gregory Peck, Tony Bennett and Joan Crawford, to name a few. The stars often commented on how much they enjoyed working with him and how well he had done his homework. Although he hosted a number of successful television and radio shows, he is probably best known for being the voice of Hercules in the original hit cartoon, The Mighty Hercules. Over the years "Herc" delighted his five children, eight grandchildren and three great-grandchildren with cheers of "Olympiaaaah!" upon request.
To his family, and others who knew him, Jimmy was larger than life. Although in very poor health in the months before he died, he was still "hosting" from his hospital bed, entertaining his audience and regaling his family with old memories. In his last days he talked with increasing clarity about his career and his life, how he was blown away to have participated in that inaugural Canadian Broadcasting Corporation broadcast, and how it was through his family that he really made his mark in this world. It was profoundly moving to watch him muster up all his energy to sign a 58th anniversary card for Mary despite being barely able to lift his hand or speak by then. He managed to eat a little (for her sake) and enjoy a little party with the family in his hospital room; he died peacefully a few days later.
Ten days after his death, Jimmy was inducted in to the Canadian Association of Broadcasters Hall of Fame and received a tribute he would have loved. At his grave, where we said our goodbyes for the last time to the man who was, in his four-year-old grand_son's words, a "real live superhero," Mom quietly sang an Irish song and we saluted our beloved Dad with one last "Olympiaaah!"
Herc would have approved.
Colleen is Jimmy's daughter.
