DJMM 9-13-2018 Fallsy Ballsy

Okay English sticklers, which is the proper term: an old wife’s tale, an old wive’s tale, an old wives’s tale, or a huge pile of horse apples? If you guessed any of them, you’re right ! Actually, it’s wive’s tale, alluding to gossip coming from old ladies, which everyone KNOWS never happens. So, it’s sort of a self-describing irony. But… to digress… TONIGHT, Doc and the MadMan discuss the ponder the points of platitudes, tell tales, truths and bona fide B.S. to sort out what old wives tales really are, er… is… or…shoot a monkey. We also take a look at the first installment of MadMan’s Mind Blowers which range from the first, the last, and the only, to the always, the never, and the perhaps. You just best tune in to find out. We also christen Jimbo the Djimbe, awakening the spirit of this African drum made in Thailand. Yessirs and ma’ams… we have begun a gen U wine international incident in the percussion section at DJAMM ! Rock with us tonite, for the Equinox is but a FortNight hence ! WE BE DJAMMIN!!

DJMM 3-1-2018 Iconic Guitars

What’s the name of YOUR rock and roll guitar? Don’t have a rock guitar of your own, you say? Okay… what about an iconic guitar belonging to someone else who might have named it cleverly? Still none? WHaaa!!?? GET A LIFE !! But seriously folks,.. MadMan and the Doc sit down to set down and set out to sit down and see some of their most favorite GEE-tarrs of all time. From Fender Telecasters, to Stratocasters to Mosrite Gospel Surfer, Strats, all… we peek into the personas of some of rock’s iconic axes and spin a few yarns about concerts we have known. Join us tonite for a little talk about tight strings, loose finishes and missing E-strings from Captain Jack Sparrow’s Gee-pap’s gee-tar. DJAMM IT, folks !!

 

DJMM 2-15-2018 We’re Still Rocking!

You requested it, we did it. Yep, here it is. Just as you asked ! “It wasn’t God who made HAWWNKK-EY TAWNK Ang-ellls !” LOL.. Yeah, we did it. At long last we did a Kitty Wells cover.
Doc and the MadMan dust off the Dreadnought and bongos for a stab at one of the classics. Although many of us weren’t born when Ms. Wells was in her prime, her chart busting classic still sounds as good today as it did when Edsels and Studebakers ruled the road.
If that’s not enough to keep you glued to your seats, then stick around for some WONDERFUL news about our Uber-talented friend Trevor McBain. Trev recently announced something exciting about his own singing career. We don’t want to spoil it for you, but it rhymest with ShmAmerican SmIdol !
Also, we back off the comedy and music for a solemn look at school shootings and offer prayers and condolences to the good folks down in Florida. May God be with you all until we meet you again.

DJMM 10-12-2017 Claim Your Enemy

Yo… Well, turn out the lights… the party’s over. They say that all good things must end… BUT only til next year !

Rock the Equinox 2017 spun off this year with a half dozen great bands and an exponential number of great rock and roll fans. Tonight,MadMan and The Doc host three members of Claim Your Enemy who capped last Saturday’s performances with their spot on, hard rockin, skin bangin’ brand of alternative metal.

We also talk a little about pro wrestling, Neil DeGrasse Tyson, physicist, erstwhile wrestler and theoretical … something or another…

Drop in and listen as we plan a bit for next year, hit on the performances from this year and do one last tribute to the Late Great Tom Petty. IT’s this week’s version of DJAMM and we’re ALL OVER IT !!! – DJAMM!

 

DJMM 2-18-2017 Vague Vendetta

Remember the days when Christmas seemed a lifetime away? When it seemed like it would be a lifetime before July 4th and fireworks got here; or the days when we counted down until our 16th birthday and getting the driver’s license? Well, today was much like that for Doc and The MadMan, cuz we’ve been waiting on Vague Vendetta to show up since they’ve been a band. But TONIGHT – tonight they showed up and gave us an hour of hard talking, open book interviews that we’ll remember for a lifetime. Front rocker chick Tegan Freeman, lead guitarists Ashton, and Larry, Bassist and vocalist Stephan and drummer Brian Briscoe came through in spades. They brought school to DJAMM studios and taught us Rock Theory 101, 202, and IOU. Never had a band exemplified the meaning of the word they created: “BAM-ILY” , a band family. Join us tonight on Dr. Jeffrey and the MadMan as we meet up with one of the biggest collective hearts in the business; a group whose sum truly is much greater than its genius parts. No sick, high school covers with these guys; Even their renditions of favorite tunes are their own, and their own original music is enough to make a grown man cry. And it did ! – DJAMM it, Bam it, with BAMILY tonite – Doc and MadMan Matt !

DJMM 1-12-2017 Reliance Code Rocklahoma 2017

True to their name, Reliance Code showed up and rocked us with some great news about their band tonight. The ‘soon to be’ headliners have made the cut to be on the event banner for Rocklahoma, 2017 ! Stigler’s own bunch of mainstream rockers has come a long way in the ten months since they visited with us last. Bassist Josh Roach, front man Todd Falconer, guitar god Shane Diego and uber-tight colleague ax man Cody Peebles spent an hour with us discussing how it all came to be, their philosophy on their music and where the feelings come from.ย “Come hang with us all tonight as we spend the whole podcast discussing the evolution of this ‘band family” and the brand of emotion they serve with each guitar lick, vocal kick and slap of the skins.
It’s DJMM, January 12, 2017 – DJAMM !!!

DJMM 1-5-2017 Pizza, Donuts and Banter

Pizza, please-ahhh ! Whatever you call it; college round steak, ‘za, pizza pie, or just dinner, pizza is one of everyone’s favorite dishes. Madman’s craving for the round cheese pies we all cave toward occasionally led to an interesting quest for the history of pizza and a trip to the Total Express, a local pizza favorite stop. January 8 is the birthday of The King himself, and if you don’t who that is, then you REALLY really need to listen to this week’s episode of DJMM. Donuts, Amazon and eBay shopping and selling are just a few of the deep and powerful subjects this worldly pair examine closely. Tune in, turn on and add parmesan. We’re worth another slice ! It’s Dr. Jeffrey and the Madman with extra cheese ! – DJMM

DJMM 8-24-2016 The Doc is In, Rock the Equinox is on the Way

Short and Sweet of it…we got a concert to put on this weekend…we…yea thats right WE…Dr. Jeffrey and the Madman will see you there!!!

DJMM 8-11-2016 The Devil You Adore Special

The Devil You Adore Shares Past, Present and Future Fun with DJAMM.

Hard working. Trustworthy. Moralistic. Talented. Four words that aren’t always used together to describe one person, let alone a group of them. But, The Devil You Adore isn’t just any old group. No way.

During their second appearance on DJAMM show tonight. Dizzy D. B.A. Barraw and Travesty gave listeners a good glimpse into that band’s depth of character. Don’t let the name fool you. These folks have a work ethic and sense of humanity that extends far past so-called humanitarians. The name only refers to everyone’s favorite vice; food, TV, video, clothes, work – we all have one. These folks are no more ‘devil oriented’ than chocolate cake or boiled egg halves at Thanksgiving.
Lead singer Dizz tells us about her earliest influences, her favorite parts about being in a band, and why she chose this group of dudes to sing with; dudes who are all much older than her 19 years. It’s an interesting and compelling tale
DYA tells us about their performances at this year’s Rocklahoma and the people responsible for making all that happen. They also do a shout out to special people who have helped them along the way, including promoters, venues and just plain ol’ good people. People much like they are.
We also take time to thank our growing list of sponsors for the upcoming Rock the Equinox concert at Lake John Wells on August 27. Come out from under your rock and rock with US on that day! Go toย drjeffreyandthemadman.com to see details and find out where you can get your tickets.
This is one for the books and the bookers folks ! Hear and meet the band partially responsible for the Okie Tusk genre, and what their plans are for the future. You’ll be pleasantly surprised to learn what they’ve been up to, and what they have up their rock and roll sleeves.
Peace-In, gentle listeners. Rock out with your… socks out.
– DJ and MM
