 In 2009, Danielle and I began a tradition of collecting some of the most fun, catchy, singable and trashy songs of the year to collect into one master compilation titled "Trashy Jams." The project started when we drove 19 hours in the car, listening only to the radio in the Summer of '09 and realized that all radio stations do really play the same nonsense. Over the years, the mixes have become more refined.

2009- A mix of summer/fall 2009 and some honorable mentions, placed by artist on the mix
2010- The songs that we remembered from 2010 and late 2009 based on some top 40 skimming. Songs were placed on the album based on how each song would sound mixing into the next one on the CD
2011- The best songs, kept on a list on my phone from all year as they came out, also placed on the album based on how they sound from song to song. This is the first time we gave the playlist to other people.

Here is a look back at some of the previous "Trashy Jams" playlists and album art we have collected over the past 3 years.
