• The Jimmy Z Wednesday Show - in STEREO

The Jimmy Z Show carries on!

Hi folks! Thanks for coming over and either (a) listening to the show directly or (b) saving the show on your media player and listening to the podcast at your convenience.

In order to keep the podcasts in stereo, and yet not overburden your computer in downloading, the show is divided into three parts - each about 30 minutes in length. So today we have a 90 minute show for ya'll!

You'll recognize lots of bits and you'll also be listening to crystal clarity that cannot be obtained at TalkShoe - or BTR for that matter (although BTR does have better sound and nicer technology).

Click HERE for Part One:
Opening • Overview/latest general internet radio hokum • Troops handles update/It is NOT all about the troops now • TalkShoe or BTR • Contacting Jimmy Z • Rant: Vulgarity and profanity on Internet Radio

Click HERE for Part Two:
Audio clip: Supposed 'Republicans & conservatives' webcasting profanity, vulgarity • The Obama Victory Toilet bit • Groucho Marx (no prude himself) on the roll of vulgarity in comedy, theatre and film

A portion of the ruminations of a 30+ year old on how easy kids have it today:


When I was a kid, adults used to bore me to tears with their tedious diatribes about how hard things were when they were growing up; what with walking twenty-five miles to school every morning ... Uphill; BOTH ways ... yadda, yadda, yadda

And I remember promising myself that when I grew up, there was no way in hell I was going to lay a bunch of crap like that on kids about how hard I had itand how easy they 've got it! But now that I'm over the ripe old age of thirty, I can't help but look around and notice the youth of today.

You've got it so easy! I mean, compared to my childhood, you live in a damn utopia! And I hate to say it but you kids today you don't know how good you've got it!

I mean, when I was a kid we didn't have The Internet. If we wanted to know something, we had to go to the damn library and Look it up ourselves, in the card catalog!! There was no email!! We had to actually write somebody a letter ... with a pen! Then you had to walk all the way across the street and put it in the mailbox and it would take like a week to get there!

There were no MP3's or Napsters! if You wanted to steal music, you had to hitchhike to the damn record store and shoplift it yourself! Or you had to wait around all day to tape it off the radio and the DJ usually talked over the beginning and @#*% it all up!

We didn't have fancy crap like call waiting! If you were on the phone and somebody else called they got a busy signal, that's it! [Continued in its entirety on The Jimmy Z Show]
