Jiggley Jones won the hearts of ArtSees Diner Radio a spell back and now he is back with his new single, "Walk On Me." When asking Jiggley "how do you classify your genre of music?" Do not be surprised to get an answer such as; "I sing Jiggley-esque!" Some people you just cannot box in, and categorize. Jiggley is exactly that type of singer/songwriter.
However you want to look at this picture, whether it’s Americana, Wide Open Country, or acoustic whatever, this artist represents life, hope, and human nature as only a seasoned person can see it. His Top 5 Roots Music Report debut EP, (#3, Americana/Roots Country, #3 True Country) No Spring Chicken included the singles “Baby Blue” and “Ain’t That Alright,” and the accompanying videos, which received more than 300,000 combined Youtube views. Now, Jones is returning with his first album on Lamon Records Nashville. A Mountain, A Struggle, A Tunnel, A Light was produced by Grammy nominee, Dave Moody. First single and video, “Walk On Me” were released in April 2014.

Joining Mary E. today will be Michelle Durpetti, daughter of proprietors Tony and Marion Durpetti and granddaughter of founder Gene Michelotti. Also, joining us will be Molly Philosophos Director of Development with Hephzibah Children's Association.
Chicago legend Gene & Georgetti, nestled under the El tracks at 500 N. Franklin St., supports National Adoption Month in November by donating a portion of proceeds from all dessert sales- including handmade Tiramisu, Chocolate Tuxedo Mousse Cake, and their famous Italian Lemon Crème Layer Cake- to Oak Park based Hephzibah Children’s Association.
Hephzibah’s Group Homes are where abused and neglected children come to heal and grow, where they can be free of fear, worry, and loneliness. Their family based services renew and strengthen family bonds and their foster care services create new, loving and secure family ties. Hephzibah’s day care program offers an award winning educational experience for children in the community — regardless of their family’s ability to pay.
Since opening in 1941, Gene & Georgetti is still family owned and operated. Co-founder Gene Michelotti’s daughter Marion Durpetti and her husband Tony Durpetti purchased the restaurant in 1990 after the passing of her father. Marion’s cousin Richard Ciota serves as general manager while their daughter Michelle Durpetti runs marketing and events. "We are thrilled to bring some attention to and donate toward Hepzibah during National Adoption Month. As a family who has enjoyed the blessings of adoption, this is a cause very close to our heart," says the Durpetti Family.
The Ladies of the Diner, Mary E. and Diane B., are slipping into their summer time slot at 9am. They will be celebrating chocolate! Musical guests: Thirty Steps to Forward Thirty Steps to Forward is composed of Seth and Gretchen Powers, a brother and sister folk duo residing amid the tall trees of Michigan. Their feet are constantly tapping to the beating of birds' wings and the sounds of their father's music. Through their strings and voices, the kindred duo strive to sing and play songs of the delicate heart. If you incline your ear you might hear the hand of a girl and boy plucking out the vein of modern music and replacing it with that dusty old heart.

This remarkable man delivers the profound message that so many of our veterans of war are coming home permanently scarred. It is not an American issue, or Canadian, it is a global issue.
Lyrics to Hometown Battlefield, He got home from service as the spring began its turn, 12 long months away, He folded up his uniform with the medals tucked inside, Started living for today, But the present could not find him, nor could his wife and kids, He was there but he was gone, Soon his only comfort was a bottle and his gun, Something right that went so wrong.
Some of J.P.'s accomplishments:
• 13 solo albums released since 1995
• 12 East Coast Music Awards since 1991
