About Racin Jacin:

A lot of people look back at their lives with regret. Unfortunately, my regret started when I was born. 1970… a year full of olive-green carpet, an orange sofa, a purple kitchen table with yellow chairs, and don’t even get me going about the hairstyles. To this day, I think that if I had only worked a little harder, I could have avoided that whole decade. 

Thankfully, I did survive the 70’s and really didn’t have to worry about much more regret until my teenage years in the 80’s. I jumped in to the 80’s head first and never looked back. From crazy ear piercings, to wild big hair, to parachute pants… you name it, I probably rocked it, but thankfully, I believe most of the photographic evidence has been destroyed over the years. To this day, I think that if I had only worked a little harder, I could have avoided that whole decade. 

The 90’s… I never finish college… I question a lot of my relationships… I wonder how a perfectly sane and rational human could possibly choose to begin a lifetime of telling fart jokes on the radio… regrets? Absolutely. In fact, to this day, I think that if I had only worked a little harder, I could have avoided that whole decade. 

Bam!!!! The new millennia, baby! A fresh start! Nothing will hold me back now… except I still get a kick out of telling fart jokes on the radio… so, maybe its not time to move on quite yet.

2010… Hey, 40 is just a number, right?… but that number sure make me feel like I’m getting old… you know, I’m not positive, but I think I just slept through the whole last decade.

Fast-forward to today… still telling fart jokes, still regret not working harder to try and avoid the 70’s… but all in all, I couldn’t be happier with how things have turned out. I get to rock out with northern Michigan every single morning… and still tell an occasional fart joke.  In fact, my only regret at this given moment is that throughout my entire life, I should have used more cowbell.

About Jim Smith:

Jim Smith is the co-host of KLT’s Morning Trainwreck. His radio career started off seven years ago, after a car accident left him physically disabled. As an intern he answered phones, drove the KLT Giant Red Radio, and did stupid stunts for the morning show. After two years of interning, he was offered the weekend, on-air hosting gig from 6AM-10AM, that lasted about a year.
The summer of 2015 brought a new opportunity for Jim. He joined Racin’ Jacin’ on what was then known as, “The Afternoon Trainwreck”. Jacin’ and Jim grew such a following, that in the fall of 2016, they were moved to the morning time slot. You will now find Jim on air rockin’ the co-hosting chair of The Morning Trainwreck with Racin’ Jacin’, from 6AM-10AM every week day.
