Episode 80: Bashful
With the Color Series officially wrapped up, the podcast reverts back to freeform goodness. While it's great to be getting through the backlog of songs so much lately, it does mean the queue's running a bit dry. So, if you have some suggestions for what you...

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.
