Today’s episode features some of my favorite records. Records that make me smile. Not necessarily records that make me laugh or chuckle, although those are here, but also records that simply make me smile, and shake my head. Make me smile in a sense of just how unusual or cool these records are. More like a shake my head in wonderment type of a smile. Hope you enjoy this episode of the Old Dingy Jukebox Podcast: Records That Make M...

Matt has been a guest on the Old Dingy Jukebox before, once as a solo host (episode #5) as well as with his wife, co-host, historian Dr. Cheryl Jimenez-Frei (episode #14). Matt brings a different and appreciated perspective to the show. I love having him as a guest and enjoying his sensibilities not only as a fellow record collector/e...

Today’s show features some of my favorite 78s from my collection. I thought it would be fun to feature hokum blues and jazz records from the pre-war era. A subcategory of the blues, hokum was popular in the late 1920s and early 1930s. Hokum songs were often uptempo, funny, and on the raw to often raunchy side. The origins of this style of blues can be traced back to the vaudeville and minstrel show era of the late 19th Century, whe...

Today’s episode features some of my favorite records centered around truck driving, hot roddin’, infidelity and surfing. The show's music selection comes from my 78s, 45s and….even a few LPs! 

I figured these topics would make for an entertaining show. Also, stepping outside the box a little for this show with some instrumental electric guitar groups. That’s where the surfing and hot roddin’ comes in. I love those types of recor...

Today’s show of the Old Dingy Jukebox is a special themed one. This episode is a collection of songs that tell stories of past events or people; stories that in one way or another were marginalized, censored, sanitized, or buried, often because they dealt with histories considered too traumatic, contentious, or even a threat to those in power. Overall, the songs in today’s episode all recount histories that survived—or that were pr...

For this episode of the Old DIngy Jukebox, I figured it being election time and all, it would be a good idea to feature records about drinking and politics. As it turns out, the show is mostly songs about drinking. I have a few records in my collection that are political in nature, but the more I started digging through the stacks the more I realized that at this point, the last thing people want to hear about is politics. So, with...

This episode of the Old, Dingy Juke Box features some of my favorite tracks from the great record label, Arhoolie Records. This great record label had a great impact on my musical development and music tastes when I was younger. It still does, and I often marvel at the great and varied output to be found on Arhoolie records. Founded by Chris Stachwitz in 1960, Arhoolie records was started out as an extension of Chris’ love for hunt...

This episode of the Old, Dingy Jukebox features records about sin and redemption. Songs for Saturday nights and songs for Sunday mornings. I thought it would be a fun idea to have an episode that features records of various styles of music dealing with these two contrasting worlds. Harcore honky tonk, blues, hokum, gospel preaching, vocal groups and country. 

Hope you enjoy episode #9: “Rascally Paramours, Satan’s Burning Hell, Reef...

This episode of the Old, Dingy Jukebox features some of my favorite guitar records from some of my favorite guitar players.

The guitar records and artists I chose for the show cover a lot of different styles and genres, which is sort of what the show is all about. Hopefully it will mak...

  • Dr. Death

    We’re at our most vulnerable when we go to our doctors. We trust the person at the other end of that scalpel. We trust the hospital. We trust the system. Christopher Duntsch was a neurosurgeon who radiated confidence. He claimed he was the best in Dallas. If you had back pain, and had tried everything else, Dr. Duntsch could give you the spine surgery that would take your pain away. But soon his patients started to experience complications, and the system failed to protect them. Which begs the question: who - or what - is that system meant to protect? From Wondery, the network behind the hit podcast Dirty John, DR. DEATH is a story about a charming surgeon, 33 patients and a spineless system. Reported and hosted by Laura Beil.
