Poorman’s ‘America’s Low Budget Idol’ Looking For Talent

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Few aspiring singers will become an American Idol, but they still have a chance to be America’s Low Budget Idol.

That’s the title of an upcoming TV show that is the brainchild of Jim “Poorman” Trenton, former host of radio call-in show Loveline.

Poorman is asking wannabe low budget idols to send him video submissions displaying whatever type of talent they have.

Poorman has already received a tape of a seven-year-old stand- up comedian and one of a 92-year-old “Roy Rogers kind of guy.”

Poorman says in each half-hour episode he’ll play the videos and make comments and criticisms. At the end of each show, the best and the worst low budget idol will move one step closer to the finals.

After nine weeks, winners will be announced for best and worst talent and each will receive $1,000 and a running car with a new paint job.

America’s Low Budget Idol premieres Oct. 1 and will air only in the Los Angeles market. However, contestants from around the country can write to Poorman at – with three o’s – to find out how to submit their tape.
