I hope those who were harmed by him can learn to forgive him. I hope he learned how to experience forgiveness.

In addition to his transgressions wiki has this, in so far as perspective goes:

Up to the time of his death, Imus had been famously known for his contribution to private charity work.<105> He raised millions for the rehabilitation of wounded veterans of the Iraq war and for children with cancer and siblings of victims of sudden infant death syndrome, who had spent summers since 1999 on his ranch near Ribera, New Mexico.<105>

Imus Ranch

In 1999, Imus and Deirdre founded the Imus Ranch, a working 4,000-acre (16 km2) cattle ranch near Ribera, New Mexico, 50 miles (80 km) southeast of Santa Fe, for children with cancer and siblings of SIDS victims and children with sickle cell anemia. .<106> Until its closing in 2014, the Imus family volunteered their time at the Imus Ranch between Memorial Day and Labor Day each year. Imus continued his broadcasts from a studio there, while the rest of his cast broadcast from New York.

I was no fan, but those comments are dripping with a lot of superiority for someone / something you never heard on the radio.

 

Imus hadn't played music on the radio since the 80s. He did a talk schtick.

 OK, I'll say what I will. We don't need people like him on the airwaves. It's a shame that I even know his name and what he said - and I worry about the easily led, who take shit talk like his into their brains and think it might be legitimate because someone gave him a microphone.

There are more important people in the world all around us. Good riddance.

I had the Hot Butter album with "Popcorn" on it; I didn't realize it was a cover.  Kingsley did some cool stuff with Jean Jacques Perrey, early electronica and Moog stuff, before Walter/Wendy Carlos.

His role in The Russians Are Coming,The Russians Are Coming was brilliant. I can't think of another movie scene where the actor sported a runny nose (at least when cocaine wasn't involved).

Jim Capaldi: Pollard and I would sit around writing lyrics all day, talking about Bob Dylan and the Band, thinking up ridiculous plots for the movie. Before I left Morocco, Pollard wrote in my book 'The Low Spark of High Heeled Boys.' For me, it summed him up. He had this tremendous rebel attitude. He walked around in his cowboy boots, his leather jacket. At the time he was a heavy little dude. It seemed to sum up all the people of that generation who were just rebels. The 'Low Spark,' for me, was the spirit, high-spirited. You know, standing on a street corner. The low rider. The 'Low Spark' meaning that strong undercurrent at the street level.<2>

Indeed, I posted a bit about that further down in the thread but it got somewhat buried.
Pollard with Nina Simone, Janis Joplin, and an unidentifed photobomber:
