Conceived, written, and performed by Davis, The Real Tom Wiggins features the charming and historically-evocative music of pianist "Blind Tom" Wiggins. A former slave who was both musically gifted and mentally impaired, Blind Tom was one of the most famous yet tragically exploited concert pianists of the 19th century. His appearances were promoted as P.T. Barnum-style freak shows, fueled by Tom's bizarre stage demeanor, the period's racial bigotry, and the diagnosis of Wiggins as autistic. Wiggins was a resident of New York City and Hoboken over the last 25 years of his life. John Davis Plays Blind Tom was released on CD by Newport Classics earlier this year.

on The Glen Jones Radio Programme

Jones attempts to break world record over Memorial Day Weekend with over four days of continous broadcasting!

Glen Jones is about to embark on the most difficult endeavor of his life:
breaking the Guinness World Record for Longest Radio Program. In order to break this record, currently held by Greg Daines of the U.K., Jones must stay awake and continue broadcasting for 73 hour and 33 minutes straight!

This Olympian effort, set to commence on Friday, May 25 at 9am and run through 1PM on Tuesday, May 28, will be webcast and webcammed throughout the world. In order to assist Jones in this grueling, sleep-deprived undertaking, a volunteer army of staff, listeners and IBJ members is now being organized. A campaign of encouraging e-mails, motivational song suggestions and a parking lot rally at WFMU (to be held on Sunday, May 27 from Noon-3pm) are just a few of the events being planned.

In addition, celebrity guests and special on-air moments are also expected. Jones, who cites sheer will and guts as the backbone of this effort, swears, "Failure is not an option. I will live and die on the radio. I shall expose myself like never before. Every emotion and fear will be out there. There will be no escape!" This promises to be an unprecedented event, an effort that will surely secure a place in the history books for Jones, The I.B.J. and WFMU. For further information and updates, visit this page.
