Episode 051 – He’s a Lover, Not a Fighter

On Episode 051 of The MJCast, Q and Jamon are flying solo. The fellas begin the show by discussing follow-up around Sky Arts’ decision to pull the broadcast of their Urban Myths ‘MJ’ episode. After this, news galore! Jamon and Q then talk about Janet Jackson’s baby boy, The Jackson’s 50th Anniversary world tour, a wrap up of Brad Sundberg’s 2017 Aussie In The Studio With MJ tour, Ne-Yo’s tribute to Michael Jackson and some new Nick* remixes. This is followed by discussion around Taika Watiti’s new animated film about Bubbles, Navi as Michael Jackson in Lifetime’s new biopic and all kinds of news around Paris, Prince, Marlon, 3T and Tito. With a brief segue into a legal update from Charles Thomson, the boys then wrap the show with discussion around Neverland’s prospective sale, Thriller and Bad’s recertification and the possibility of a new Jacksons TV show. We hope you enjoy this episode of the internet’s premiere podcast on all things Michael Jackson and the Jackson family.

Episode 009 – Sausage Fest?

Episode 009 - Sausage Fest? YouTube ArtJamon and Q discuss a range of exciting issues with guests Jerome Horne and Marni Carlsson. Topics include The Jackson’s recent appearance on American Idol and their upcoming ‘Proms in the Park’ performance, a new Janet Jackson album for 2015 and further discussion on Dimitri Reeves and the Baltimore Riots. We also delve into a fantastic question which was sent in by listener Austin Ernst around what Michael would be doing artistically if he were still alive. Please note, the recording of this show wrapped just minutes prior to Janet Jackson announcing her new album and world tour on the 16th of May, 2015. We’re pretty good at predicting the future though right…?
