Jump on over to Get Jacked! episode #100, featuring Jack Elias.
As a young DJ starting in the late 70s, Jack remembers the time when they actually got to pick and play music they liked. He was a popular DJ in Colorado known as Panama Jack throughout the 80s. Having been away from radio for a number of years, Jack is back in action with a great rock music podcast where he again gets to play exactly what he wants to play. And that's the way it should be.
This particular episode, Jack talks about the buzz with independent music and broadcasting. If you have any doubt that there is some major energy going on with music today, listen to what Jack has to say about it on show 100. People are out there making music and doing their own podshows--just because it's fun, because they have something to say, and there is an audience listening. People are doing the right thing for the right reasons with passion and energy. The happy result is quality music that has been absent, or at least unavailable. And you know what? Quality music and conversation improves the quality of life.
Also worth a quick mention, on his momentus occasion, episode 100, Jack features 100 Year Picnic. He opened the show with the nifty and appropriately jacked-up theme song we created this week. Go over and check it out... And he played our song Everything. Be sure to check out the other artists too, of course. There's some very good stuff in there.
Thanks again Jack for supporting independent music!
