Every once and awhile I come across music that I really enjoy. If you like upbeat dance music – check out Chicago’s very own DJ Dan Morrell. Make sure you check out his podcasts. I have bought more music after listening to them than I have in a long time! Good stuff. Anything else? Yes – he also plays the guitar. Watch the video… Read more

New Beastie Boys Album

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 0 Comments

There are some artists that I feel like I have been listening to forever and Beastie Boys are definitely in this list. I remember trading 3 blank tapes to one of my third grade classmates for Licensed to Ill. (I was so proud). The Beastie Boys have been a part of my life and as soon as I hear an album – I can tell you what was going on in my life when it came out. I was happy to hear that the latest album is coming out next month so if you are like me and really excited... Read More » Read more

I have been enjoying Apple’s web interface to iTunes. Last week I wanted to pass on a link to one of my favorite podcasts and was able to send this link which allows you to listen/preview/subscribe to the podcast all via a web browser. Sharing has never been easier. PS – check out episode 281 EXTRA via that link – it is worth it! Read more

Media Mondays: Radio 538 iPhone App

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 0 Comments

This week I recommend anyone who enjoys listening to Radio 538 (I love the Dance Department) – to download and use the Radio 538 iPhone App. (Julie – this means you). You can get the application for free using iTunes. Even though the controls are not in english – it is easy enough to figure out within a few seconds. With this app – you can listen to a variety of Radio 538 radio shows at any time – using WiFi or not. This app definitely made my first screen of apps on my iPhone. Read more

Looking for Some Recommended Music?

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 0 Comments

Music is very important to me. I listen to music for at least 8-9 hours a day (all day while working, 1 hour in the car a day). It has been awhile since I posted anything on the podcasts I subscribe to via iTunes and I wanted to update the list incase you were curious. I generally listen to upbeat trance/vocal trance/dj mixes which gets me pumped up to do just about any task so if you are looking for something different or what I would consider worthwhile – here is what I am listening to (do a search in...

Ocarina

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 3 Comments

A friend of mine recently told me I need to buy this “really cool iPhone application” called Ocarina…so no questions asked…I purchsed it for $.99. From the creator’s web site: Ocarina is the first true musical instrument created for the iPhone. Both experts and beginners will be amazed by this innovative player. Ocarina is sensitive to your breath, touch and movements, making it even more versatile than the original. Unlike other musical applications, there are no pre-compiled riffs so musicians will find unlimited opportunities for self-expression. Still confused? Check this out: My guess is my sister will go on tour... Read More » Read more

What Am I Listening To These Days?

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 3 Comments

People that know me, know I like to listen to my music with the volume cranked up, that I work better with music in the background, and that I am passionate about great music. For the last few years, I have really gotten into vocal trance (dance music that is a bit more edgy/hard than what you would hear on the radio). I listen to a lot of great podcasts and wanted to let others out there (like my sister) know that there is some great music (free) out there. Mondo Sessions (Check out June 2007 – this is my...
