JACK Interviews: P-Nut From 311
I recently had a chance to jump on the phone with 311 bass player and song writer, P-Nut. P-Nut shared on topics such as the band’s new album, Stereolithic (out now), their show here at Southside Ballroom on July 31st, the Dallas Cowboys, Dallas...

JT The Jack-Fm Freeloader: Freeloader Concert Review
Your favorite Freeloader ventured once again to Grand Prairie, Texas this past Sunday. I arrived at Verizon Theater, Freelady in tow, about to rock...and boy was I saluted. Sunday night's performers included Shinedown, Stone Sour, Papa Roach...
JT The Jack-Fm Freeloader: Bold Reversal Or Golden Fool
It’s recently come to my attention that the male species is not singularly beholden to the typical attributes of the alpha male. Man has been urged by nature for a long time to hunt for and acquire what he desires. I’ve been walking this earth...
JT The Jack-FM Freeloader: Mudbuggery Or Mix Jagger
I’m gonna go out on a limb here. There’s a first time for everything, right? I’m not existential, exploratory, or fond of discovery. I’ve never been to Europe. I don’t climb trees. Space does not intrigue me. If something doesn’t happen here ...
JT The Jack-FM Freeloader: MC Free Or Invisible Pun
I don’t think I’ve ever been more hyped for a middling holiday. Dallas’s St. Patty’s Day celebration is this Saturday and the hits just keep on coming. I’ve been quite forward about my excitement for the Freeloader float. Nothing makes me hap...
JT The Jack-FM Freeloader: Spring Broken OR Bathroom Humor
I was recently perusing a friend’s twitter account when I came to a strange realization. Many twenty-something singles are going on college-like Spring Break trips post college. In some cases, very post college. This got me to thinking; what’s...
JT The Jack-FM Freeloader: Hit Parader Or Postage Potables
There's a lot of talk around town concerning this year’s St. Patty’s Day parade and concert on March 16th. The city is really turning it up to eleven this year, and that pleases me. The parade and subsequent events are the coolest things our ...
JT The Jack-FM Freeloader: Gunnin' 4 That Number 1 Spot
Below you will find the anticipated finale of The Top 5 Albums Of My Lifetime. Click HERE for the Consolation Category and HERE for #'s 5 through 3 to get yourself caught up. Now, on with the countdown.
#2: 311-Soundsystem (1999)
JT The Jack-FM Freeloader: 5,4,3
It just felt a bit too pretentious to spend a whole day on each of my Top 5 Albums of My Lifetime. I figured, why not up the anticipation and then knockout #'s 5 through 3 in one day. If you missed the back end of the Top 20, read it here....
JT The Jack-FM Freeloader: Consolation Category
I couldn’t name the Top 5 Albums of My Lifetime without throwing a nod to the top twenty. You have before you the Consolation Category. These discs fell short of the top five based on my criteria, but are all too important not mention.
JT The Jack-FM Freeloader: Announcing The Top 5 Albums Of My Lifetime
I’ve spent a lot of time on my back lately. Being hit by a truck and coming down with an epic bug has taken me out of it for the past few weeks. I’ve had a lot of time to think about my next Freeloader Blog: Special Edition. No, not the Mom...
JT The Jack-FM Freeloader: Right On The Money Or Doctor Strangewords
I’m not one to brag, but I think I called it right on Sunday’s ads. I was about as disappointed as I’ve ever been in the commercial lineup. With the exception of the senior citizens partying their diapers off, it was a sad affair.
JT The Jack-FM Freeloader: Koala Balla Or Tweety Turd
Hello free-world. We can still call it that, right? The Big Dust-Up is upon us and with it comes baggage. I could spend an hour going down the list of all of the corporate tentacles that overshadow the game itself. But neither of us has an hour...
JT The Jack-FM Freeloader: Busted Up Or Friend Is A Four Letter Word
Man down. I apologize for my absence the past few days. I haven’t spoken with my dear Freeloader forum since Saturday afternoon. Strange as it may sound, I have a very “loader” reason for the disappearing act. Ya boy got hit by a truck this wee...
JT The Jack-FM Freeloader: Free Doors Down Or Stage Rush
Last night was a true Freeloader evening. Me and some fellow Jack-Fm listeners enjoyed live music, spirits and late night mistakes all thanks to The Freeloader Page. Verizon Theater Grand Prairie was the sight, 3 Doors Down/Daughtry double-bill...
JT The Jack-FM Freeloader: MLK Meets The Wolfman Or Ru-Fi-O
It seems our nation’s history is evolving. The icons we studied in text books are no longer acceptable as great heroes of freedom alone. Today, legends from social studies class must be equipped with the best weapons, move faster than light, an...
JT The Jack-FM Freeloader: The Final Countdown Or Duckling In Disguise
No punches to pull today ladies and germs. Today is the oft advertised Twitter contest for free tickets to see Penn and Teller April 12th at Verizon Theater Grand Prairie. I want the true faithful to have a good shot at this. So here comes a ...
JT The Jack FM Freeloader: Winter Blues Or Mickey's Misfire
I am not a comfortable beast in cold weather. I prefer the beach over the mountain, pina colada over hot cocoa, and coconuts over pine cones. I believe I was created to walk this earth in as little clothing as possible, not in layer ...
JT The Jack FM Freeloader: I've Got the Magic Or Kool Runnings
It’s a very special time to be a Freeloader. This week I have a unique deal on my hands and it’s only available to those who read this blog and follow the Freeloader on Twitter. Penn & Teller are bringing their one of a kind, alternative m...
JT The Jack FM Freeloader: That 2:30 Feeling Or Prime Time Dimes
Today, I’m amid the age old war between artificial energy and legitimate rest. This is a rare occasion. I normally don’t get out of bed before noon. If I do rise early, it’s usually to escort the "walk of shame" or tell my dog to stop quoting ...
JT The JACK FM Freeloader: Free-For-All Who Ball Or Bozo’s Business
It sure looks like ‘Bama got the freebie Monday night, doesn’t it? Not only did they get some help from the zebras early, but they also “rolled” right through Touchdown Jesus. I can’t remember as glorified a match-up being as one-sided as this...
JT The JackFM Freeloader: The Plot Thickens Or Nobody Calls Me Chicken
Finally 2013 is upon us, and hopefully soon you’ll be upon me, on Twitter that is. Did I mention I’m on Twitter? (Follow me HERE) Anyhoo, the new year always brings some level of excitement, so I’d like to layout my master plan for 2013:
