Timeless Jam

Timeless Jam

This is a story that proves the old AM radio adage "the music never stops." Geoff Greif, Jasey Schnaars and Bob Thompson are a trio of aging rockers. They were something of a one hit wonder in the early seventies. But the band they created in 1969, the Kansas City Jammers, has recently been rediscovered thanks to the Internet. Problem was, the guys had moved on with their lives. One is a doctor, one a teacher, and one a professor. They never imagined that they'd be playing again - living out their college dream - thanks to the fans and the Internet. The three join Dick Gordon to talk about their unlikely success, and their passion for rock 'n' roll.

Like many 20-somethings, Jada Brotman found herself in New York trying to make a living. Jada had her sights set on a job in the museum world. Even with a master's in art, she found herself interning for free at museums during the day, while taking on evening jobs to actually pay her bills. Jada talks to Dick about the strangest, and in some ways, most disturbing night job she had while she was in New York: booking appointments at an escort business.
