Crossing The Streams:  The Podcast Meets The Internet Radio Show We're crossing the streams this week and combining the Jersey Beat podcast with "Rock & Roll Gas Station," my Internet radio show, bringing you a collection of songs mostly contributed by the readers of the Pop Punk Message Board ( You see, my PC is kaput, and my iTunes library and other mp3's have been inaccessible. So I put out a call to the Pop Punk Bored and sure enough, bands and labels sent in enough music to carry me through for a few weeks. So with thanks to Rally and Traffic Street and Merman Records, and bands like the Sentiments, Snotlip, and Wild America, and musicians like David Dead, Drew Hawthorne, and bands from four different countries, we present the cross-dressing, cross-cultural, crossing-the-streams joint episode of the JB Podcast and RnR Gas Station. Screeching Weasel - Bottom Of The Ninth (Teen Punks In Heat) Fear Of Lipstick - Did Ya Know (Sea Creatures EP #1) The Brought Low - Everybody Loves A Whore (demo) The Dwyer - Waiting For A Bullet (Gas Station Masturbation) Andromeda Klein - Dr. Frank (Demo) Textbook - Better Late Than Never (The Great Salt Creek) Wild America - Think Too Much (Wild America) Awesome New Republic - Alleycat (hearts) Buzzkill - Rock N Roll Gas Station - 7 inch EP Teenage Bottlerocket - Todayo - (They Came From The Shadows) Snotlip - Nzag (demo) The Sentiments - Goodbye Ramona (Goodbye Ramona) The Scruffs - Treasure Girls (Conquest) Drew & The Medicinal Pen - Paper Pockets (Heavy Head) The Roman Line - Squeaky Wheel Gets The Grease (Sea Creatures #1) Megaphone - Favorite New Disaster (Exit Silent Mode) PG 13's - Winona (Get Back) Sci Fi Nightmares - Death Follows Her (EP Split with The Loblaws) Nouvelle Vague - God Save The Queen (3) The Riot Before - You Can't Sexy Dance To Punk Rock (Fist Out of Sockets) Northern Poly Riot - Orencia, Once In A While (Nothern Poly Riot)

Jersey Beat Podcast #12:  A Salute To Jean Shepherd Jean Shepherd was the screenwriter and narrator of the classic holiday film "A Christmas Story," as well as an author and  television personality.  But to a small legion of dedicated fans, he will always be remembered for his radio show on WOR, which consisted of Shep bending his listeners' ears with a seemingly endless and fascinating collection of stories from his childhood, his days in the army, and his observations of modern society.    On what would have been his 85th birthday, we salute Jean Shepherd with this retrospective, which includes an interview with Eugene Bergmann, author of "Excelsior You Fathead! The Art & Enigma Of Jean Shepherd," which examines Shepherd's life,  career, and legacy as one of America's pre-eminent humorists.
