Thanks for all the feedback on our original memorial for Ryan, featuring highlights from his time on The HotSpot and the Giant Bombcast. We said then that we were cutting together a version of the memorial that would be infused with Summer Jam songs.

As promised: the Ryan Davis Memorial, Summer Jams edition. The password to the ZIP is Ryan's "middle name," no caps.

I think it easily rates amongst the best things we've put together. I hope you enjoy it.

This is great. I've enjoyed all your other Best of Bombcast collections, and this is a nice tribute to Ryan.

I'm really happy about/excited for this.

You know that's not his actual middle name though, right?

Of course, but everybody knows what I mean when I put it like that.

Haha, alright. It just took me a minute to figure out why the password wasn't working.

Listening to the episode now, though. Thanks for all the work you do on these shows, really great stuff.

Does this use the same Bombcast/Hotspot clips as the last one, just now with music? I actually enjoyed the songs by Ryan/Jeff/Alex/etc. on that one so not sure I want to listen again with different music, but it's still a great concept and much appreciated.

For the most part yes; there are actually a few new clips, and some have been taken out. All of them have been rearranged, and the Suburban All-Stars songs aren't included -- this is pretty much a different beast.

Good concept and nice work. However, I personally think I prefer your first Ryan compilation. I found the audio mix here a bit tough for my ears to parse, so I think I'll continue to enjoy my Bombcast and Summer Jams separately.

That being said, this is still a great tribute.

Great job. I never really followed Ryan's summer jams (which I kind of regret now), so I enjoyed hearing that along with the rest of the tribute.

I wasn't quite sure how I'd end up reacting to this, whether it would leave me completely depressed or not, but it's a testament to his character that even given the circumstances I still had a huge smile on my face and laughing out loud through most of it.

Still, miss you forever Ryan Davis.

My experience with Ryan's summer jams was always seeing his tweets and shaking my head at how terrible the music was. My twitter feed is so empty without him.

I never jumped in on the Spotify public lists or the thisismyjam recommendations or any of the summer jams - I feel like I missed out, bad. Will be catching up now.

The music is a bit loud during the clips(Just my personal opinion, feel free to disagree. :P), other than that the Summer Jams version is great!

Just listened to this in one go. Great way to remember/pay respects to the man. Thanks so much for putting this together.

Going to listen to this during a 10k tomorrow. I was trying to decide between the This Year's podcast and the Summer Jams playlist on Rdio. Problem solved. Bourbon (with one ice cube) tonight and running with Ryan in my ears in the morning.
