Around the same time he also worked as a DJ on KANS in Kansas City. In 1960, a promotional 45 was cut by the Decca label. The following years saw him working around Dallas, Texas often as a DJ but also as a live act. During the 1970s, he recorded several singles for local labels and had also an LP issued. Jimmy Dallas died on September 28, 2004.
