We visit about the need to extend a helping hand and a listening ear to our fellow man and woman, brother, sister, child and grandfolk – a recurring theme in today in our contemporary podcasts. Doc got the chance to chat with chart busting country funny man Rodney Carrington, and shares the fun with everyone about that. The DJAMM Bros put together a cover of Bob Wills’s “Stay All Night”, and blast it out for every future generation to enjoy.
So with that, G.R., we invite you’ uns all and once’t to join us in our global examinations, ruminations and general observations. WE BE DJAMMIN’ IT FA SHO!!

 

DJMM 12-8-2016 Consider the Raven

Consider if you will, a young band with a great mindset, heads square on their shoulders, squeaky clean, friendly and hard working. Now consider the fact that they’re home grown, talented and own a sound like no other you’ve ever heard in any genre of music. Now… Consider the Raven is the name. Trevor McBane, Kelsey Shelton, Kyle Shelton and Levi “Fiddler” Mason visited with Doc and the MadMan tonight. Back home for a short break after their first tour with BIG name Christian band, Cleansed by Fire, CTR has a new look, a fresh name and the same great sound that launched their burgeoning success when they called themselves The Kingdom. It only required the tiniest bit of urging to get them to sing a few of their original tunes for us, plus an old time honored favorite. Christians by nature, theme and heart, their cross over appeal is certain to win fans from every corner of the popular music charts. Tune in and turn on to these brilliantly talented young people on their third visit to DJAMM Studios. We be DJAMMin’ tonite! – DJ and MM. Peace IN!!!

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 7-7-2016 The Destination & Stigler Chamber of Commerce

Never let it be said that Dr. Jeffrey and the MadMan aren’t up for new experiences. That said, when’s the last time you heard someone call a 21 year old man, “old”? Well tune in tonight, and listen to a fresh new band from the Stigler area named The Destination, ages 13, 14, 14 and 21. That’s right ! This talented and energetic group of youngsters share with us not one but TWO original songs right in DJAMM Studios ! Members Williams, Prince, Crase and McCormick came to the studios this afternoon and hit us hard with their fresh brand of “OKIE TUSK” music. As a special bonus we also were proud to host Janice Williams, Executive Director of the Stigler – Haskell County Chamber of Commerce. Janice shares with us the exciting new developments happening as a result of the recently voter approved sales tax for economic development. She talks about the developments at Roye Park, new plans for walking trails, music opportunities and ways that virtually everyone can benefit from being a local Chamber of Commerce member. Tune in tonite for yet another fun, informative and entertaining segment from Doc and the MadMan… and never forget that you can listen to past shows just by clicking on the links on the website ! How cool are these guys anyway!? We love good folks ! – DJ MM

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?
