Episode 66: Wildest Moments
With 5 of the last 7 episodes having some kind of theme, it was high time to return to the ol bread and butter of freeform for this episode. The queue of songs I've been waiting to share has grown to a ridiculous length that will delightfully be whittled do...

Episode 62: Say Yes! To Michigan
With 2013 drawing to a close, Some Kind of Jam is on the move yet again. After a year in lovely South Korea, it's time to head back to sweet home Chicago... and yet my home state of Michigan is on my mind. As always. Aside from the 3,177 miles of Great Lake...

Podcast with sounds varying from afrobeat & rock to bluegrass & folk, soul & jazz to country & blues, house & funk to rockabilly & R&B.
Introduction

After a three year tenure at WIDR 89.1fm in Kalamazoo, Michigan, Some Kind of Jam has made the transition into podcasting. Though the show started mainly as a tribute to jam bands and the culture that follows them, it's now much more free form spanning nearly every genre with more artists and sounds being added by the day. With regular Guest DJ episodes, the show is tailored for music lovers of nearly every ilk with sounds varying from afrobeat and rock to bluegrass and folk, soul and jazz to country and blues, house and funk to rockabilly and R&B, and more.

If you'd like to make requests or submit music to be considered for the show please leave a comment or send a message via Some Kind of Jam's Facebook Page.
