Jack White, formerly of The White Stripes, has just released his second solo album, Lazaretto. White is known around the music industry as a kind of creative genius. Besides The White Stripes, he also helped form groups like The Raconteurs and The Dead Weather. You can see him on TV tonight on Conan on TBS. Today we're featuring the title track.
This week we're also featuring O.A.R. The band was formed in 1996 by four guys from Rockville, Maryland. They really didn't become O.A.R. though until they met their fifth member as students at The Ohio State University. By the way, the group's name stands for Of A Revolution. Their new album, The Rockville LP, is in stores now.
A LITTLE ABOUT JIM
Each morning from 5am-9am , Jim talks with them all, news correspondents from the White House to London to Baghdad; newsmakers from former Presidents to Playboy beauties; sports figures from Pete Rose to Marvin Lewis and actors, authors and activists. He's the voice of volunteerism, the emcee of choice for just about anything from Marty Brennaman night at the ballpark to a Bengals rally to a visit from the President. Jim is an avid golfer, marathon runner, the guy who will close your kids' school in the winter. And he does this all on 5 hours of sleep a day. Jim is the winner of the 2002 Marconi Award for Large Market Radio Personality of the Year. His show is produced by Greg Shurts.
