JIMM 46 - Super Rock Mix


Stick this podcast in your ears!

Get ready for one, long mix of rock songs from the Podsafe Music Network. Here's an episode you may want to burn onto a CD to play over and over.

I've tweaked, massaged, and otherwise manipulated these 14 tracks into an hour's worth of audio entertainment. Sandwiched in between the intro and some listener feedback at the end, you'll find close to 50 minutes of non-stop music.

Here's what's in store for your ears:

1. "Torn Down" - Sophia Ramos
2. "No One Understands" - Berman
3. "Encounter" - Forever Changed (via Eastwest Records)
4. "Mercury in Retrograde" - The Reverse Engineers
5. "Remember" - Black Lab
6. "Heidi" - The Bombhappies
7. "Dynamite Lady" - the golden gods
8. "Not the Only One" - Hotrod Cadets
9. "Less Than Beautiful" - Headrush
10. "Hey Hey Sister" - Laura Clapp
11. "Long Night" - Fiasco
12. "podpeople" - munk
13. "New Day" - Nate McDonough
14. "latin groove" - a.b.e (anthems of a bygone era) (during listener feedback)

Thanks to all of you for listening and for the following listeners who sent in feedback this week:
1. Jon, aka the Official Cheesehead, from the Tanfastic Podcast
2. Ed, aka the Official Audio Commenter, from Ed's Mixed Bag, who also produced the outro
3. Mike from the iRiver and 6620 West Kidcast podcasts

JIMM 45 - Follow My Train of Thought


A shorter episode than the last!

I share, on the way home from work, how thinking about one thing led to thinking about another thing, and so on, and so on - from some quirks about our car to a safety alert system from an old job.

By the time this episode comes out, I will have mailed the two copies of Todd Lerner's CD "If Right Now Played Guitar" to the Bruce Murray of the Zedcast and the Official Mom, both of whom were the first two people to send in audio comments for last week's episode. By the way, anyone can get a free song by Todd Lerner called "Song for Free" at

In each package was a postcard of something unique to Cincinnati: a recipe for Cincinnati chili. What got me thinking about that was The Catfish Show. They ask listeners to send postcards to them. So I sent one to Bob and Cat, and I also included one each to the packages I sent to Bruce Murray and to the Official Mom.

Also in last week's episode, I talked about what it means to be an Official of the Journey Inside My Mind, and Ed Ovett of Ed's Mixed Bag has asked and is now the Official Audio Commenter of Journey Inside My Mind. Welcome, Ed!

I'm not sure if I mention it enough on the show, but you listeners are fantastic!

Music played on this show comes from the Podsafe Music Network (PMN). Specific songs played and their PMN links are as follows:

JIMM 44 - The Birthday Edition


My wife Jennie joins me for this special episode, in which we discuss how we spent my 36th birthday, and some other things we're thinking about today.

By the way, at the beginning I read "On This Day I Complete My 36th Year" - a poem from Lord Byron, George Gordon. Lord Byron, unfortunately, died at the young age of 36 years old. I think I'm doing much better than he. Amen.

We play some listener feedback from Mike Chappelear, whose song "What Is This Moment" I played back in show 42, Bruce Murray and his daughter, and the Official Mom.

After a short moment we play some birthday wishes from Ed Ovett from Ed's Mixed Bag, and we played a promo for Rich Palmer's Audio Gumshoe.

We play a clip from Bruce Murray's recent Zedcast, which includes some comments I sent him along with his comments about this podcast.


"Breathe" by De La Vega; third time played on this podcast;
"Lying in Wait" by Uncrowned; theme to Scott Sigler's podcast novel INFECTION. If you're into Stephen King type horror, you've got to check this out.
