Suddenly... a portal appears... leading to the East Bay of 1989. Is *that* what that earthquake was really about?
Avatar Fri. 10/17/14 7:05pm Billy Jam:

TODAY ON WFMU: RARE BAY AREA CALL-IN RAPS from 1988, 1989, 1990 KALX radio shows I did with my man G-Spot - call in raps from all over including Berkeley, Richmond, Albany, San Francisco but mostly from Oakland - East, West, and North Oakland and over beats like Too $hort's "I Ain't Trippin" instrumental. Really good stuff too in my opinion that includes so many references to crack that I had not listened back to until now - 25 years later harking back to a time when there were "new jacks" and when having a "car phone" was a big deal….with callers including regulars like L.B. and Big-O) Tashima, Lil Mitch (not Bitch) - Davey D calls in and under his rap name G-Jam/Billy Spot diss the Niners and spit a rap medley including his covers of PE and DU - A fair ratio of female rappers - more than today ---- and Kerry P whose mom busted him for being on the phone midway during his rap - listen closely and u will hear some crazy shit

Avatar Fri. 10/17/14 7:17pm Billy Jam:

I can't believe that before this show even started that we already reached the GOAL (gol!!!!!) for this SHOW….thanks people…..I also feel a lil bad for indicating two weeks ago (week one of this Silent Mara) that I could change the show to 3 hours when the scheduling is actually beyond my control…it is station manager Ken who decides who is on when…..not to say that I cannot submit a wish to change times…..Anyways to compensate - especially loyal generous good listeners like Spidermank in Manchester UK - what I would like to propose is that I go to your house and do a live WFMU radio show from your living room. U down Spidey? All I need is an Internet hook-up……and I can be there on (say) Friday March 6th, 2015…Let me know if u are down?

Spanking me beats Billy Jam. I think I just heard Spidey exploded himself all over his drum kit.
Avatar Fri. 10/17/14 7:27pm Billy Jam:

at Dawgisht - hah hah - that was a regular thing we used to do back then….so much fun……So Spidermank if u are down to do that email me (billyjam@wfmu.org) over weekend so we can make plans as I am booking all Euro flights this weekend…..thanks…….PS these days my man Gary "G-Spot" Baca is a DJ on KPFA and KPFK

Aint no bluffing we gonna be puffin it UK mank style ..wikkid stokeddddddddd
Avatar Fri. 10/17/14 7:29pm Billy Jam:

the earthquake references in this rap are because the October 1989 earthquake that devastated the Bay Area had only been few months earlier……Also love how - later in this show - one of the callers does what you know is a real freestyle when he does a play by play of the 49ers game on TV at same time as radio show
Avatar Fri. 10/17/14 7:29pm Dawgisht:

This guy here is the best out of all of them so far (talking about the Earthquake, Task Force, etc)... other than the 4-year old Lil Mitch. lol
  Fri. 10/17/14 7:31pm Mark:

Dude, this shit is GREAT! We don't have spontaneous fun stuff like this any more--everything has to be "successful." Love how it was so long ago, there was a football team in L.A.! Bring back call-in raps in 2014!!!
Avatar Fri. 10/17/14 7:31pm Billy Jam:

What we did on the radio back then could not be duplicated today - since now rap is mainstream…..back then we had a dedicated diehard audience starved for rap/hip-hop - and we had built up a strong following…….
  Fri. 10/17/14 7:33pm Mark:

Well, it's spectacular, man--I'm digging the shit out of regular ol' folks just bringing' it. This is no different than a hootenanny they'd have in the 1840s in the Appalachians. The poets and musicians bring you the news. Love it!
Avatar Fri. 10/17/14 7:34pm Billy Jam:

This guy - who sometimes used other names so as to not be blocked - is pretty darn good - he is the one who does the 49ers freestyle later
Avatar Fri. 10/17/14 7:35pm Billy Jam:

hey MARK thanks….hey Jon, Ken from Hyde Park, Marcel M and all else tuned in - really appreciate it…...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 10/17/14 7:35pm spidermank:

we got to get something like this shit flowing again , it is beyond the pale , so feckin deep . Your live shows always pickup this vibe Billy . callins are risky but frisky effing cool
Avatar Fri. 10/17/14 7:41pm Billy Jam:

Spidey - just talked with G-Spot about that very thing today and he suggested in new year on KPFA we do it…so maybe it will happen..I think I tried this on WFMU few years ago but not much reaction to it…..Frankly even on KALX or anywhere today I do not think that this could be done…it had a non-stop line of people (many regulars) trying to get in on the air - so much that we had to allow one person one rap on the air…..Back then it was so different - hip-hop was a small community with few outlets….Today the audience is too broad and too segregated with too many other places for hip-hop to hear it…>BTW I will be on KALX on Monday next week (they are having their fundraiser this week)
  Fri. 10/17/14 7:43pm Marty in Baltimore:

shit I could listen to this all night long.....just incredible

"Today the audience is too broad and too segregated" you said it Billy , fear rules us fools , until we turn, a tsunami of voices are yelling the same song inside, we are just kept down outside, peace n love n respect for fighting back Billy and WFMU peoples. so many talented calliners , wow wot a show cant wait to hear it again and again
