has long been the terror of local Christian radio hosts
and various sports programs. Her contributions
have tickled many a listener, wondering exactly who this elderly woman from a rural area
is, exactly. Turns out she isn't a she at all, but a very talented and shy young man by the name of Brother Russell
Russell's ability to almost instantly morph into Melba Jackson is stunning, and he can be heard "becoming" her on at least one prank call on Radio Jihad
. He has been the bane of such televangelists as Robert Tilton, Benny Hinn, Bob Larson, and Christian radio talk show hosts from Dallas to Austin and everywhere in between. He's pranked the guys at The Ticket and done video collages, chastised Mormons and pretended to be raptured while ordering religious children's books, too. But he is not the supposed 88-year-old Gladys
who called the Ellen Degeneres show at the beginning of 2007, despite some startling similarities.
