Moms & Monterrey



According to legend, one of the biggest obstacles in Todd P's first foray in Monterrey's music scene (under the guise of a festival called MtyMx) was bands' moms. Under the pretense of unsubstantiated rumors of senseless drug lord violence, a number of headliners from the 2010 incarnation of MtyMx cancelled, citing their mother's fears for their safety. When Joe and Ginny heard that the festival was under way for a second time in 2012, this time as part of a local Monterrey festival called NRMAL, they headed south of the border to find out out for themselves what all these musicians' moms thought of Monterrey.

Joe & Ginny's Jam Sandwich

RADIO SERIES

Jam Sandwich is how it sounds: A ridiculously awesome super sandwich of some favorite jams. You could say Joe is one piece of bread and that Ginny is the other piece, working in concert to hold together some of the freshest ingredients the radio has ever tasted. Simply put, Jam Sandwich is a collaborative effort to share with the world the constant flow of songs and bands that characterize the lives of the two host/producers. Recorded directly to cassette tape, Jam Sandwich upholds the values and aesthetics of the traditional mix tape. The hosts hope that the content of the songs outweighs the quality of the recording and that the DIY production out-values occasionally awkwardly improvised song introductions. About the series, Ginny writes, "We hope that these songs impact you like they have impacted us. We hope that after listening to our Jam Sandwich that you become inspired to make a mix tape of your own."
