JOTD – 'X' Marks the spot.

Like a few other… I'm gonna use the word "brands" (I hope that's not too mainstream a word for some) in this crazy world 'Jam of the Day' has transcended its original name and simply become 'JOTD'. In recent weeks it has shown not only to be a treasure trove where discoveries can be made of every style of music ever invented / imagined by the human race, but a place to chill and throw in random thoughts, film ideas (first time for everything), funny jokes and even a bit of boxing. It's also a place to swing by when the need to take a sneaky breather during a hard day of work takes over, or when you can't get that incredible / terrible tune out of your brain and you have a trifling need to unload it (it better be good.) Just kidding! But seriously, I've found some shit hot songs here in this time and I guess I'm not the only one.

And if you like the idea of a song celebrating #WEST COAST WEDNESDAY, a #THROWBACK THURSDAY or a #SOME KIND OF FRIDAY then see you here, welcome.

So take up Louis Stevenson's BLH 'X' marked map and find yourself adrift in the cultural winds, leading you to the Treasure Island that is JOTD, warming your hands by the musical bonfire and sheltering in the lee of these JOTD trees, protecting yourself from the harsh outside winds of the real world[wide web], if only for a moment. Where even 'Beliebers', 'Lil' Mixers', 'Directioners' and 'Selenators' are welcomed over complainers, moaners, whiners and criers.*

As I've now hemmed myself in with my own crap metaphors unable to escape (stick to the narrative my GCSE English teacher used to say…) I'll leave you with one last subtle shill: JOTD has reached 10 ladies and gents! And it wants YOU!

*It pained me to type those four unfortunate groups (Beliebers and what not, I mean)
