About Me

ER doc at inner city hospital in Philadelphia. More than 40 years in Emergency Medicine, including combat medic in Vietnam. But from 1972-1975, I worked as jazz DJ at small station in midwest university town. My love of music continues. My external hard- drive has more than 1800GB of mp3s. There are more than 4000 vinyl LPs in my basement. Whenever I travel to a new country, I load up on music. Got some great Mexican guitar trio, Czech bass-piano-drum trio, Argentine guitar, Polish jazz singers (including Polish bossa nova), classic Indian raga, French cabaret, tons of MPB, and South African township, etc.

Hi Joe... Please let me know if you didn;t receive the March Mix 'Western'. It was thrown into the bag at the post office here in the UK without a customs sticker on it. The woman said it wasn't needed, but some other woman recently said that it IS needed. I'll resend if you didn't receive it.

Dan

hey joe, where you going with that gun in your hand? sorry couldn't resist! I am your Sept mix cd provider. It is a bit weird - hope you like it! cheers Dan.

Walter

Hi Joe, thanks for the August disc which arrived safe and sound. What a thoughtfully crafted concoction. E-mail to follow.

Jon

Dear Dr Joe,many thanks for the mixes- Fantastic! Love being sent something out of the ordinary.Will report further when I've had a chance to digest. Take care & have fun. Jon

Kay

Got your June mix some time ago and really enjoyed it. Thanks!

Mark

Thanks for the wonderfully diverse Spring mix. It has indeed sprung, but alas in Texas we are going directly to Summer now.

David

Yeah, I play mainly jazz saxophone, but a fair amount of bass clarinet also. The way he plays is just amazing. If you take a record like Bitches Brew, his playing is so different from Head Hunters, say, but still amazing. Glad you like him too! And thanks for your (two) mixtapes - both great stuff!

Natalie

Hey Joe, a big thanks for the July mixes. Great idea and some fantastic artists.

Cheers for the June 2011 mix...an education and a joy

Shelly

Hey Joe - Just mailed out your June mix. Hope you like it! -Shelly

David

the May mix i'm super late with is on its way to you. i was away from home a lot last month and just forgot to do it until i started working on this month's

Scott

Enjoying the stony mix, thanks!

jill

John, While the music I sent you this month may not be at your fingertips in your collection, I hope you are open to it. But, I guess you are open to new styles, or else you wouldn't be a member of this project. I've yet to receive my mix from my music penpal and am very anxious to see what they have compiled for me. I recently shot two documentaries at inner city hospitals. One of them was in the Level 1 Trauma ER Stroger Hospital of Cook County. The second was shot in Cermak Hospital inside Cook County Jail. The Cermak one aired on Discovery Health in November and is being shown on OWN next week. All of this to say that I have a whole new respect for medical staff. Keep up the good work! Jill

Ellen

Amazing mixes! Thank you so much, I really enjoyed them. You even had notes! march's mix has a tough act to follow, for sure

Bret

Hey, Just got your mix in the mail. This was my first received mix with this group. I was worried about what may show up, but now I'm pretty dang excited. Thanks again. Bret

David

Wow, the Halloween cd's were great. I wonder if there as many songs with; "God" in the title?

David

Did you get a mix from me?

David

Both mixes are excellent. i really enjoy hearing different takes on songs which have become standards. never had a full 20 versions of anything until now.

gabrielle

Hi Joe, Again, thanks for the CD. Loved the comments - an edifying and highly enjoyable mix. It's has been getting plenty of air time around the house and is coveted by friends and family alike. Look forward to seeing what you come up with next. Cheers, gabi.

Richard

Hi Joe - Got yer cd a few months back. Thanks! Hope you found something you enjoy on yours! Rich

Martin

Hi Joe, the CD's arrived yesterday, and I'm listening as we speak. As you mentioned, not the obvious Beatles covers. Many thanks.

Joe

Hey Joe, Cheers for Novembers mix. Sounding good

Ashley

Absolutely loved "Walk Don't Run". Thanks!

Kim

Hey Joe - got your Feb '09 mix today and listening to it now. Really different, I can honestly say this is the first truley original mix I've received in which I am being introduced to every track for the first time. Loving it! Thank you, Kim.

Katie

I just received November 2008 (Memphis). It was worth the wait. Thank you!
