Ryan and Deal do something very Binghamton and go to the Spiedie Fest. The Wizard talks paradoxes and we freestyle- Ryan does the beats, as he should. Dana drops a dope rhyme and Nick York gave us the best samples- you just really gotta hear it.
Blow Jam is zero parts Blow and 3 parts Jam in this rockin' episode. Ryan Lee, guitar virtuoso from the band, Like Astronauts, gives such a thorough interview that Delia and Ryan barely ask him any questions. Ryan Lee rocks out with Vince on the Drums, Maximum Lupo on bass and keys, and this guy, Corey, slapped the bass. Dana exposes his fiery passion and we all probe each other's consciences.
Blow Jam gets locked up with the Wizard... literally. Do they escape?! Ryan spends a night out with Bennie and they encounter some interesting characters. Blow Jam plays their first ever cover song 70 years ago and Ryan and Bennie play their first ever manhole cover song. Beatz by Ryguy (Ryan Blackman)
Blow Jam emerges from their cocoon to witness the Reality Cult rock out in all their glory. The Fantasy Club is the sole dissenter, so we get some fun Reality Cult members' perspective on the matter. The Blow Jam crew plays 'Where in the World' and The Wizard provides interesting information on our friend, Beezow Doo-doo Zoppity-Bop-Bop-Bop. Beats by Concept Confederation; Ryan developed the beats and helped record this, a long time ago in a far away land called Cortland. Dennis Fleury and Screwy Louie D; feel free to reach out- miss you guys...
Vince's dad, Michael, comes by and sets Blow Jam straight on our neighborhood's lawn maintenance situation. He also happens to be an amazing musician; and we have a sick jam together. The Blow Jammers; Dana, Bennie and Vince talk about race and we are all still friends! Deal spits a Plug Hub revival.
We open with "Ghost Story," the very first jam Blow Jam ever jammed.The Wizard is the Sex-Dream Surfer of the otter persuasion, and his tiny yet fearsome dog, Diggy, makes a cameo. Dana thrives on Trump anarchy, and Delia has some little-known facts about the Republican candidate. More Beatz by Blow Jam.
The Blow Jammers hang out with pianist Kenny Mansfield. We had some great jams and fine sing-along with Kenny and Vince. There's more news from the future with The Wizard, and Dana elaborates on an interesting theory.
Ryan and Delia went all-out on the beats, tracks and songs for this episode. Everything is original Blow Jam. Our special guests return for their own segments. Dana rants and raps. The Wizard travels in time. Bennie is Bennie. Mad content for our homies.

Episode 9: Binghamton Parade…Hooray! Brought to you by the Intergalactic Vince Kelly Coalition of the Heavens
Ryan and Delia brave the crowds to seek out the essence of The St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Binghamton. We have great interviews with Bennie Jackson and Marissa Cuthbertson-Jackson, The Wizard, new friend to the show, Rob Connerton, and a post-parade wrap up with Dana Multer. Vince is there too! Superior investigative journalism followed by an old Irish song written by Ryan and Delia.
Delia And Ryan host our biggest show yet “rolling 8 cats deep.” Past guests reminisce about how they were initiated in the Blow Jam Gang. Then we play the story game. Descend into drum circle madness. The whole thing is just really funny.
Ryan and Delia enjoy a pleasant Saturday morning with rockin’ roller Amanda Graves of the band Shake Shake Shake. We get to know her a little better and she was a delight! The band’s drummer, Adam Cucci also stopped by and we had a lil jam sesh. Good times ya’ll.
Deal finally turns 30 years old and some old friends stop by to celebrate. Kevin LaBarr and “he-who-must-not-be-named” Phil Laskaris make their first appearance on the show, and The Wizard Polish Palomino, Rich Starzak returns to join the madness. Hilarity ensues! Soundbytes brought to you by Bennie Jackson… ask your doctor if Bennie Jackson is right for you… and Justin Wheaton who mixed the Glory Hole songs back in 2009. Jam: “Strong Feelings” recorded live by Vince Kelly.

Proud to present Blow Jam’s first installment of Bennie Jackson Game Night. Bennie tells us crazy stories about naked people doing naked things downtown, his love of geocaching, and his exploits in social media. Ryan, Delia and Bennie then hunker down with a game of Fluxx, Monty Python style… literally.
The Wizard tells us some of his amazing life story http://www.thefamilyschooltruth.com/ He also brings a ‘mystery instrument’ for our enjoyment.. Justin Wheaton stops by to talk about music; past, present and future. Delia (guitar) Ryan (banjo) & Vince (djembe) get down with a short, acoustic trance-like jam at the end.
