Jim Babjak, guitarist/vocalist, co-founded The Smithereens in 1980. The band was inducted into the New Jersey Hall of Fame in 2018. Throughout the years, the band has released over a dozen studio albums. After lead singer/guitarist Pat DiNizio passed away in 2017, the other original members of the band have incorporated "guest vocalists," Marshall Crenshaw and Robin Wilson of the Gin Blossoms to help persevere and carry on the bands legacy. Ray White, multi-award winning program director, caught up with Jim in December of 2022 to talk about the latest studio release from the band - The Lost Album. The songs were recorded in 1993, but finally released in 2022. He also shared the latest about his entrepreneurial venture (you'll have to listen to find out.) Don't miss our tribute to Pat on Episode 30, too. In our showcase segment, we feature the latest from the bands' "guest vocalists." Marshal Crenshaw re-released Miracle of Science in 2020 with"new" songs and Robin Wilson with the Gin Blossoms released Mixed Reality in 2018. Rock 'n' Roll at its' finest on The CAT!
