    WBWC 88.3 FM in Cleveland is doing an 18-hour Joe Jackson marathon starting at 7 AM on Thursday, June 20. How random is that? Of course, being a huge Joe Jackson fan I would probably record the entire thing if I was in the area (sadly, I am not).
    Check out Joe's Website for details, or go to WBWC's site. You can even listen online (if you're not at work).

    My my that is random isn't it. JJ is one of the best pop songwriters of the last 25 years without a doubt, but like other masters like Marshall Crenshaw and Sam Phillips he seems to get more appreciation from the critics and his fellow musicians than the record buying public.

    I'd listen if I were there.

    I would also enjoy this greatly. I once heard JJ do a cover of a classic reggae Jimmy Cliff tune..never heard it again. I hope you heard it during this marathon.

    You can get the Jimmy Cliff song ("The Harder They Come") on the two-disc compilation "Steppin' Out".

    Nah, probably not. But it is out there -- maybe one could find it in a used bin or something if they really want that track.

    In a perfect world, it'll show up as a bonus on a reissue of "Beat Crazy" -- like the one that was supposed to come out this past spring but has apparently been cancelled, at least for the moment. Right now, the only thing on the radar is a two-disc Deluxe Edition of "Night And Day" which is supposedly due in late July.

    Of course, the reunited Joe Jackson Band (same lineup as on the first three albums) will be putting out a new album early next year, so maybe we'll see some reissue action at that time.

    I've been thinking about buying that hits compilation, mainly for driving music. It seems like half the time I spend picking CDs for the car is devoted to choosing a Joe Jackson album.
