About Me

Living in St. Paul, MN

Former college radio DJ. The "best" mix I ever received was from a listener, Slinky Dog, who made me a mix entitled "1968 The Best Year Ever." His mix was in my DJ box one day with a post-it from the music director: "A crazy guy that visited the station very creepily asked me to give this to you."

The "best" mix I ever made was for my friend Patrick who was so distracted by its genius he was hit by a van while crossing the street. :/ Thankfully he wasn't hurt too badly.

I love thoughtful people, learning new things, cities at night, anything Finnish, and my kitty Thor.

Hi Jenny, you've sure put some interesting mixes together. I'd like to share a side trade with you. Let me know if you are up for it. Danny

Trish

Hi Jenny Like you imalso a DJ. If you ever want to do a side trade let me know. If you are interested in reading my blog its www.djtrishm.blogspot.com Groove on! Trish

Ron

It just hit me - not only were you my October assignment, but your address is '666'......Spooky :O

Jon

Thanks Jenny* Sorry, I never think to Google stuff like that Have a Happy Halloween. We are heading slightly South to see the menacing morris troupe Mr Fox.Jon*

Jon

Jenny* Is there a Screaming Jay Hawkins song called 'Whistling Past The Graveyard at Midnight' or have I been dreaming? Hope you are happy and well* Jon*

John

Hi Jenny, Thanks for the Electronic Scandinavian BBQ mix. I enjoyed it very much. I like Apparat, and I love Broadcast; also seeing Grace Jones' version of Warm Leatherette made me smile, I'm a big fan of JG Ballard. Good work! This is the first IMP mix I've gotten in awhile that wasn't a recycling of the current indie top 10. John (syzygy139)

Ron

Was just wasting the rest of my dull day at work when I read your profile. Laughed out loud when I read about your friend being awestruck (and van-struck) by your mix. (Not a malicious laugh :-)) I used to DJ in college too. Also love many of your faves. See X live if you can - it's a great show. Let me know if you want to sidetrade sometime...

Rachel

yay everyone is happy

Rachel

Hey, just wanted to drop a line again to say how much I have been enjoying your October 2008 mix in my kitchen for almost a whole year now. My current favorite is "There's A Pot A Brewin'." I have to listen to it about six times per day.

Megan

Hi Jenny! Thanks for the mix! I've been enjoying it. Actually, I just moved to Germany, but don't have a real mailing address here yet. The mix you sent to CA was forwarded back to my parents' house in Madison, and they sent it to me over the interwebs:) So no need to send another copy.

kimberley

Hi Jenny! Glad you enjoyed your june's mix! i love the sounds! the mix was inspired by the facted that i climbed up snowdon! so i put together a few of the songs that i listened on drive to wales :-)

Angela

Hi, Thanks for the great and thoughtful mix! Still listening and absorbing it. Angie

Jackie

I got your mix yesterday! It got me through writing a paper. A lifesaver! Thanks!

Adrian

Thanks for the January mix, Jenny. I can say without doubt that it's the best mix I've yet received: it's taken up residency in one of my CD players. Good to see a nice mix of old and new on there, too.

Aubrey

You're so sweet. I'm glad you liked it.

Adrian

Thanks for the warning about the Jan mix, Jenny. You have now whetted my appetite.

Ian

I'm pretty sure you're the Jenny from MN that just sent me a lovely, present-packaged mix for December. It's all songs that I don't know (mostly by bands I've heard-of-not-heard), so I'm looking forward to digging into it, but probably won't have time to until next week. I'll shoot you an email once I've had a chance to. It looks great though, thanks! And hey, anyone who titles a mixtape after a line from "Find the Answer Within" is clearly on the right track...

Richard

It all works so well, but I'm always a sucker for the Boo Radleys, a most underated band

Richard

Sorry it's taken so long to get back to you but the mix you sent was fantastic - took my breath away! Fantastic sleeve as well. You out my efforts to shame

Rachel

how cool that we were assigned to each other! i got your mix too, and love it. i'm kind of listening to it in chunks, so lately i've been obsessively repeating the first four. i think "nice train" is my favorite, with the first track being a close second. thanks for the other "don't" songs! i don't know those ones, so i will have to look them up. and i'm glad you saved the mix from the oatmeal. i won't ask how that happened.

Mike

Thanks for a great September mix!

Andrew

Dear Jenny: Gosh, I'm sorry. I'm just writing to tell you that your August '08 mix just got put in the mail yesterday, so you should be getting it in a couple of days. It's a bunch of bouncy-yet-smart techno-pop things, a summer mix arriving in fall. By way of explanation or excuse, I'm in the middle of a move right now (and coming to you live from a hotel room!) and so things have been hectic and disorganized. I apologize for this here delay. - Andrew

David

That's too bad. I like Ween and have always wanted to see them live; but douchy isn't the vibe I'm looking for.

David

Did you not like Ween?
