Max Wax, Vol. 88

Tonight, I’m simply taking this stack of records to the studio and am going to spin whatever hits me. On top of that, I’ll be debuting two new tracks from our friend Alex Salcido of The Harmed Brothers!!! This one’s going to be chill and real.

Max Wax Live, Vol. 84

Mack is hitting the Trendkill decks LIVE… and is bringing a stack of wax that includes some of his favorites from 2020. From Arlo McKinley to Sturgill Simpson… from Deftones to Sevendust… and back to Foxy Shazam and The Harmed Brothers… we’re bringing a lil’ something for everyone.

Max Wax, Vol. 83, w/ guest host Walter DeBarr

This show was recorded LIVE on-air and Mack was joined on the phone by the incomparable Walter DeBarr Music. We launched the Trendkill debut of Walter’s new single, “Blackened” and the entire show was curated by WD, then spun live from vinyl in the Trendkill Studio. The first of many guests this year, from all over the music universe. You don’t want to miss it!

The Schizophonic, Ep. 122

On this session of the Schizophonic, we dial it back a little bit. Relax and dive into the sounds of some Acoustic guitar. We have some old favorites, a few acoustic versions of regular songs, and a few live acoustic renditions. Originally aired Tuesday 11/1/20 on

Live from the Art Mine, Vol. 1 – The Little Blue Hearts

Our first live streaming show from the Trendkill Radio studios in downtown Covington, KY, just across the banks of the Ohio River from downtown Cincinnati, and we’re lucky to feature Walter DeBarr’s amazing and acoustic three-piece, The Little Blue Hearts. This show will make you laugh a little (it is our first attempt at this live feed that went out on FB Live Video and on our airwaves), but it will also move you with the dynamic performance that was hauled from West Virginia just for our listeners. It was an incredible evening… and we can’t wait to have Walter’s full band back to the Art Mine soon! Enjoy…

Sessions With Jimbo, Ep. 180


So tonight I try to express my feelings about the current events the only way I know how. Through music. This show was struggle to say the least. I’m not much for talking so I let the following speak for me : #eddievedder #blindmelon #soundgarden #daysofthenew #soulasylum #benharper #citizencope #bobmarley #thewailers #nahkoandmedicineforthepeople #xavierrudd #jeffbuckley
So join me for an hour of expression. Pay no attention to the rambling man in between the music.

Max Wax, Ep. 83, with Alex Salcido

So, what happens when a talented musician stops over, picks a handful of records and we spend an hour spinning and talking shop? Find out tonight, when Alex Salcido of The Harmed Brothers comes in and we get down to some tunes from Elliot Smith, Whiskeytown, The Boss, Bob Dylan and a whole lot more. Plus, he sheds a little insight into what’s coming this year. Dig it.

Max Wax, Vol. 82

On this vinyl heavy show, I’m recapping the amazing birthday weekend I shared with great friends at this great festival that is organized by great folks with an amazingly great lineup. The Whispering Beard is truly a festival like no other that I’ve been to and, while you may not like my voice, the music I play will be GREAT. Included will be Ryan Bingham, Frontier Folk Nebraska, Maria Carrelli, Buffalo Wabs & The Price Hill Hustle, Willy Tea Taylor, The Harmed Brothers, Town Mountain, The Felice Brothers, Lost Dog Street Band and more, depending on what I can squeeze into the hour. Cheers!
