A year and 1/2 ago I published my first predominantly reggae episode and it ranked high on my download stats. Reggae is just plain easy and fun to run to. On this show, not only do I bring reggae to the forefront again but I feature an outstanding musician, composer, producer, and humanitarian, Louinel Jean.

Jean is a Haitian who moved to Jamaica in 1998. A man of deep compassion, Jean composes and performs music that not only entertains but inspires and informs. He calls for us to be our best and to be sensitive to the hardship of others, especially children.

Other tunes not included in this show keenly increase our awareness oif injustice. Check out two outstanding works on this theme: Darfur Outcry on and Justice on iTunes.

Jean first graced my show on episode #23 and then again on #33 with 3 of his most popular works. On this episode, I replay these tunes along with 2 newer Louinel Jean tracks, and tunes by 4 other artists in the reggae and dub traditions.

Louinel Jean’s Bio

Here’s the artist list:

Louinel Jean – 5 songs

Dubmatix – A remix of a John Brown’s Body tune

Scott Turchin

Dubtrak – Intro continued as outro

As always, I advise runners to be careful not to exceed your maximum heart rate, especially on the faster tunes.

The JogTunes Indie Podcast is a 30 to 50 minute podcast for runners who enjoy matching the beat of great indie music.

It turns out, many indoor cyclist, aquarunners, users of stairmasters, ellipticals and mini-trampolines, and even swimmers, also find these shows great for tempo workouts.

The songs are selected and sequenced solely for working out exactly to the beat of the music. The shows begin with a brief introduction and a warm-up tune usually in the 110-130 BPM range. This is followed by a series of tunes that begins in the 140-150 range and usually peaks with tunes in the BPM range of 170-185. The sequence slows back down to a cool-down in the 110-130 range.

Some episodes may have a "sprint segment" which follows a cool-down tune at around 15 minutes toward the end of the episode. This segment is a short, fast set that ends with a final cool-down track. Some users may need to keep their workout short and stop with the first cool-down while others may want to complete the full episode.

Dr. Bob, the founder of, is the producer and host. He provides introductions to the songs along with the BPM details.

The indie artists' tunes are podsafe and come from many resources. Among the podsafe, tune-download resources are Music Clout, Music Gateway, Musicpage, Blue Soap Music PR and Plugging, and Cyber PR. Dr. Bob also finds many bands and tunes via email from the artists and/or their promoters.

Most of the tunes on the playlists are available via our links to the iTunes Music Stores and links to Amazon/MP3, or through links to the artists' and/or their promoters' websites.

Cyber PR

We play many artists promoted by Cyber PR. Here's more:

Ariel Publicity, a Music PR firm with an 11-year history of delivering results for independent musicians has recently launched a new service to keep up with the ever-changing landscape of the Music Business. It's called Cyber PR and it works like a matchmaking site for artists that expose you to online PR opportunities. Click here for details.
