DJMM 7-29-2016 Stress on the Rich Special

Who says that only L.A. and NYC are the best places for music in America? Obviously some grossly misinformed people who haven’t heard Stress on the Rich !

Three members of Stress on the Rich, a young Fort Smith, AR band rocked our socks with their acoustic chops on Friday, July 29th ! WOW, what a micro-set they hit us with.
Lead guitarist Dillon Taylor with Dillon Yother on acoustic bass and Travis Taylor on vocals, brought it TO US in DJAMM studios; playing no less than four of their original songs and teasing us with another ! I say again, WOW ! Doc and the MadMan were alternately choked up with emotion, recovering from cold chills and set back in their studio chairs as these impressive, talented and “together” young folks worked hard.
The guys were so blown away, they didn’t even bother to banter their usual “hows it goin’ ” dialogue. That’s correct; the entire show was dedicated to the music of these four friends who boast their own recording studio and over 60 collectible guitars. OH, and lest one forget, their ages added together wouldn’t equal the speed limit on I-40.
In a special emotional segment, SOTR presented a song they wrote about the late Jarrett Chord Chapman, a Stigler Kindergarten student who succumbed in 2015 after a battle with a rare form of brain tumor. The song, Drive that Train, begins about 51 minutes into the podcast, and appears on the group’s first EP which is named by title in the show.
Tune in for this week’s show and know that music is made here in the foothills of the Ozarks !
Keep it coming, guys! We loved having you!

DJMM 7-21-2016 KATYA interview and Rock the Equinox

If every day was like today… we JUST don’t know if we could stand it! It will sure be hard to follow this one, folks and fans. We had a great presentation and reception at Stigler-Haskell County Chamber of Commerce’s monthly luncheon, where we talked about our upcoming Rock the Equinox concert at Lake John Wells. Yup, the MadMan and I talk about the excitement we felt from the group there, and the buzz around the music that’s just around the corner. We take a few minutes to thank our first wave of event sponsors, Stigler Chamber of Commerce, Aaron Bailey Shelter Insurance, First National Bank of Stigler, and Bill Cox Insurance and Real Estate. Our August 27 show ignited a passion in our hearts and in those around us… but one who MAY feel it more is tonight’s special guest, Hollywood rocker, Katya of KatyaMusic who spent a good chunk of time catching us up on her preparations for her fifth tour of Japan. She’s pumped to blast it all off right here in The Big Stig as our headliner, featuring Vague Vendetta, Reliance Code and Rocklahoma artists The Devil You Adore! We take a trip on memory “lake” as I recall the legends of kiddie trains, ice cream cones and the days of merry-go-rounds at Lake John Wells. Our area’s slice of Shangri-La is still beautiful, with its 220 acres of surface water, abundant camping spots and fishing opportunities galore. Step back and take a gander at this week’s Dr. Jeffrey and the MadMan Show. We’ll see you on the air ! – DJMM

DJMM 7-16-2016 Partnering for the Park, Bobby Mouser and The Kingdom

“So, Doc, Madman; how did you guys spend your Saturday?” Well, let’s see, we went to the nicest city park in Eastern Oklahoma, listened to some great music, talked to some exciting and informative people about wonderful things happening for ALL of us, and had a great cheeseburger to boot !
That’s right. MadMan and Doc spent the day at Roye Park in Stigler where the organization Partnering for the Park hosted a fundraiser day with games, LIVE music from great bands and capped it off with a golfball drop where dozens of prizes were given away. Those things alone were just, well, pretty darn cool.
But that wasn’t all of it. We caught Stigler’s City Manager Bobby Mouser as he was buzzing from task to turn and quizzed him about the exciting developments taking place in the City of Stigler, not the least of which is the construction of a new hospital ! Yep, it’s in the works and word from Bob is that if the stars align, we hope to turn the first shovel full of dirt by this fall ! WOW !
Hang in there, it gets better.
As DJAMM was getting ready for the show, they looked up to see none other than the members of The Kingdom strolling by ! On a last minute booking, this dynamic and fresh faced group of uber-talented prodigies agreed to come to the Partnering for the Park event and play their own brand of Southern Spiritual Rock and Oklahoma Tusk for the good folks there! What a day ! They played after Bob Martin and the Day Job Quitters and right before the delightful Dante Miller, an amazing up and coming talent on the Oklahoma music scene; and Stress on the Rich, a staple in West Ark and Eastern Oklahoma, As if THAT much more wasn’t enough, they came by the podcast booth and shared their plans to hit the road with a Billboard charting band for almost two months this fall !
Now, gentle listeners, if this hasn’t pumped you up to come on board and give DJAMM a listen this week, then you’re coming up short. It’s rich with entertainment, this Dr. Jeffrey and The MadMan, Partnering for the Park Event Special ! – DJ&MM

DJMM 7-14-2016 Artifacts & Rock the Equinox Special

What is the meaning of Life? Well, Doug Adams tells us that the answer to Life is 42, whatever that means, but that sounds like as good an answer as any. However, tonite MadMan and the Doc discuss the origins of stone tools, locally sourced arrowheads, the constellations, planets and the moons. Heck, at times, they even sound downright philosophical.

Join these two as the take a thoughtful and interesting stroll through their feelings on archaeology, paleontology, astronomy and several other things they wish they knew more about. Europa, Io, and Calisto? Not just the names of some great Argentinian soccer players.
DJAMM also starts the first promos for the end of summer rock show to be held at Lake John Wells ! To be sure, Rock the Equinox is going to be an event to remember, with hopes that it helps establish a new series of concerts in our fair region.
Don’t forget Saturday with Partnering for the Park at Roye Park in Stigler, where an evening’s festivities will include live music, games, drawings and a golf ball drop – all centered around the NEW PAVILION ~! And if you’re feeling extra froggy, jump on into a 3-on-3 roundball tournament at the new basketball courts. Doc and MadMan get to be part of this well planned and benevolent day. Countless people have chipped in time, effort, elbow grease and brainpower to make it all happen. Come out and show your support for our beautiful park and its future here.
WOW! All that’s happening in Stigler??
Folks, you have no idea.  We’re just getting started !
– DJAMM, Rocks the Equinox

Genre-bending Southern rockers The Kingdom kickstart Summer tour, tease new single ! (begins at 14:20 into show)

Introducing, The Kingdom, The Band. Do they play Christian rock? Sure they do. Just ask ’em.

But, as many southern rockers would say, that ain’t all.

Nope, not even close.

To see these young people is to witness the invention of an entirely new flavor of rock and roll. It’s original, genre-jumping, sandal stomping, southern style jams.

Hold on a minute. We’re getting ahead of ourselves. First, close your mind’s eye and picture not just another rock band, but the most gifted group of young people you’ve ever met. Imagine now their music, a dynamic, untraveled approach for not just rock, but the soul of all traditional rock, with an out-of-the-box spiritual flair.

You’ve never heard this before. Huh-uKingdomh… nothing even close.

Now, open your eyes… and your ears !

In this June 23, 2016 appearance, wholesome, fun loving music phenoms The Kingdom  blow Dr. Jeffrey and the MadMan away with unbelievable vocals, harmony, instrumentals and musical arrangements tight and powerful enough to make a composer blush ! WOW! Alternating between panting through sweltering Oklahoma heat and feeling goosebumps over the original music… it’s enough to catch musical pneumonia !

Their music almost certainly defies category and description, but suffice it to say, that if you listen to The Kingdom on DJMM, you’ll witness the emergence of what is almost certainly the greatest new genre-bending band of the era.

They’re self-styled country pop / Christian rock / soul / southern rock and so much more rolled into one… or six, made into one. The sound is fresh, unique, honest. The camaraderie they share is as organic as the friendship that brought them together.

OH, and did we mention that they dropped a previously unreleased single with US last night?! They hit us with a hot new track of their original dit, Flesh and Bone. How cool is THAT?


“The Kingdom” drops some live jams on DJMM Tomorrow Night, June 23, 2016

An exciting, fresh faced group of gifted young artists are scheduled to chat with Doc and MadMan tomorrow night as part of the next step of their burgeoning career.Kingdom

The Kingdom, a Southern / Christian Rock band hailing from our corner of Oklahoma will interview and perform for Dr. Jeffrey and the MadMan as part of the regularly scheduled show tomorrow (June 23) night.

Firm and proudly entrenched in their Christian Rock foundation, (some of the members actually met at an Oklahoma church camp), the music which The Kingdom has created transcends that which comes from most other existing brands of spiritual contemporary music.

In other words, these kids ain’t your average church rock cover group. They definitely have their own, ROCKIN’ sound !

“We’re SUPER excited to have a chance to share the music this extremely talented group of young people have,” said Matt “MadMan” Mayo. “Their YouTube performances ‘sing’ for themselves.” he said. “They’re quite a unique blend of young people, with a wisdom beyond their years. It’s honest, sweet and sincere, but with a little edge,” added Jeff “Dr. Jeffrey” Brown, also of the podcast.

Truer words have ever been spoken about any musical group. Yeah, they’re young. The oldest members are a seasoned 21 years, while the female lead is 17 and still a Senior in High School. Though young in years, theirs is a precocious mix of original soft rock and some masterfully restyled covers of old favorites such as You Are My Sunshine. Like many groups, the old favorites are welcomed by the crowds who love them. Unlike other groups, their original stuff is what the crowds love most.

The group consists of Trever McBan, primary lead vocalist; Kelsie Shelton, lead and harmony vocals; Kyle Shelton, guitar, trumpet, lead and harmony vocals; Josh Sexton, mandolin, guitar, bass, banjo, and harmony vocals; Levi Mason, cello, violin, and keyboard and Ty Thompson on drums and other percussion.

Dr. Jeffrey and the MadMan is recorded live at DJMM Studios on South Broadway in Stigler, Oklahoma. Tomorrow night’s broadcast will be available for download at approximately 10 a.m. the morning of June 24.

Don’t miss this great young group !
