Punch Up The Jam | A Year In Review

Every week, comedians/best friends Miel Bredouw and Demi Adejuyigbe attempt to fix a popular song despite absolutely no qualifications.

Every week, comedians/best friends Miel Bredouw and Demi Adejuyigbe attempt to fix a popular song despite absolutely no qualifications. PUNCH UP THE JAM is a show cataloguing their descent into madness as they review, rewrite, and remix all the hits you love to hate, or just love (until they ruin it for you).

Looking back at a year of Punch Up The Jam, we answer listener questions, talk about our song selection process, movies and music we grew up with, songs we can’t punch up, our favorite punch-ups– and then we play a very special punch up to celebrate 50 episodes of the show!

Our Year-End UNPUNCHABLE JAMS of 2018: 'The Fire' by Natalie Prass, 'Make Me Feel' by Janelle Monae.

Switched On Pop | Slay Bells, All Year Long

A podcast breaking down the music of pop hits.

Pop music surrounds us, but how often do we really listen to what we’re hearing? Switched on Pop is the podcast that pulls back the curtain on pop music. Each episode, join musicologist Nate Sloan and songwriter Charlie Harding as they reveal the secret formulas that make pop songs so infectious. By figuring out how pop hits work their magic, you’ll fall in love with songs you didn’t even know you liked.

This winter season unwraps a deep dive through a pop subgenre of monumental importance: non-holiday songs that feature sleigh bells, from Bonnie Tyler to Nas; on Side B, we rebroadcast our episode on Mariah Carey's classic 'All I Want for Christmas Is You'... and more sleigh bells.
