Listener comments!

  8:06am Billy Jam:

Greetings WFMU listeners. Besides all the bad news this week (Haiti earthquake + the ever fucked up economy + so many great artists passing) there was also some good news when earlier this week New Jersey became the 14th state to decriminalize marijuana for medicinal use following votes in the state Assembly and Senate. The Assembly voted 48-14 to pass the "Compassionate Use Medical Marijuana" bill and several hours later, the state Senate voted 25-13 to approve the bill. Gov. Jon Corzine has said he will sign the bill and is expected to do so before leaving office next Tuesday (Jan 18, 2010), and once he does the law is expected to take effect in about six months, meaning the Garden state could see it's first medical marijuana dispensaries open this year - 2010 is gonna be a good year, I can tell. ......No guests today - just music. But stay tuned for upcoming weeks' guests coming thru the WFMU studios plus details on the upcoming Irish remote from the Community Skratch Games in early April.....Also for more hip-hop and related updates (many pertaining to WFMU) if you would like to join me on FaceBook hit me up directly under the name "Billy Jam" - THANKS for listening to the only goddam radio station that matters W F M U
  8:19am Dan K:

We all have some debilitating disease. Mine is a debilitating disease or unease around idiots who still believe that weed should be criminalized while alcohol and tobacco are legal by the US Government. Plus that pain in the neck - Glenn Beck. WTF - Wot The Feck! Legalize it fully - and set free all those wrongly imprisoned in the USA over pot possession!
  3:04pm Parq:

Any praise for the NJ Legislature has to be tempered by the reality of its other high-profile decision of late.
  3:04pm djspiderman:

keep this dam beat going
  3:06pm Bad Ronald:

4:19 all day everyday!
  3:07pm Timi Dz...Nutz:

it's 4:20 some where man......
  3:08pm dextrous:

Let's go to Jersey city we can hang around with all the smoking boys and girls, The locals never heard in D.C, they're still hiding under the eaves. Jesus is a ted and the holy ghost is a mod!
  3:09pm Cecile:

BIly Jam! So good to hear ya!
  3:09pm Jenniqua:

Ladies no longer Love Cool James after seeing his face on NCIS. Hate ta say it cuz he was way cool back in the day...

Side note - did you know there was a marijuana university in Oakland, CA? Check it:

  3:12pm dc pat:

why is the background green??? I don't get it, what-- Oh yeah, an Irish thing...
  3:12pm Ike:

Specific chronic/severe illnesses only; nothing vague like "anxiety" here in NJ:
(from NJ.com)
  3:12pm Paul:

Yo Billy, yo keep these bomb ass beats droppin what a great way to start of the show.. Big up NJ for passing the Legislature on cheeba, cheeba. Later Peace, One Love. Greetings from Dub
  3:13pm djspiderman:

8 mins in and its allready the best show ever.....

bliss out my bass Billy i got you LOUD .....cheeers everyone i am getting hammered and dancing
  3:16pm Cecile:

BIlly, if you could slipslide some deep house in your set at some point that would be beyond awesome

Spidey, I'll live vicariously through you...
  3:17pm Cecile:

wow E40 put out records for 20 years?
  3:18pm Timi Dz...Nutz:

..Yeah, I gota say it too. One of the Best starts to a show yet, I'M like'n the "no guests" today....
  3:18pm north guinea hills:

Billy, you better put on some deep house at some point, Cecile has been asking for it ALL day....

...and I'd enjoy it as well.......
  3:19pm fred:

I can only wish they got rid of the "medicinal" qualifier. I mean alcohol is legal and I've never had any trouble with anyone high on pot ever, even though I'm used to walking home late at night. Drunk guys have been having me running more than I care to count. I know, the state gets tax money out of booze. Hey guys, tax weed as well, and make it eay for lame/white/old looking guys like me to get the stuff already.
  3:20pm Cecile:

I know. LOL.
I didn't suggest it to Doug. He has his setlist carved in stone.

Cecile could put stuff on her iPod and stop bugging the DJs, too.
  3:23pm Dr. Joy Browne:

DJs would rather be praised than punished, but they'd rather be punished than ignored.
  3:26pm djspiderman:

hey Cecile think of me as the advance landing party for the weekend 4:19 is a distant hazy memory .for us GMT 'ers ..i love Billy smacking the fuck out of my subs on a friday night ...cant help but dance -- 8)
  3:28pm Cecile:

That's right, Spidey, You're doing party recon for us! :D
  3:29pm Timi Dz...Nutz:

Yo Bro...Where My RAY LOVE At????? I gots to get my money on.... And it's good to see you got the FB page roll'n.!.!.!
  3:31pm Cecile:

give it to me give it to me...
  3:34pm Cecile:

YES. sir.
  3:40pm Cecile:

so glad you're back Mr. Jam.

note to self: jack yo body.
  3:41pm north guinea hills:

(stepped out for work purposes)... Oh schhhheeeiiiit! sweeet jesus of mercy, some hard floorin'!
  3:41pm Billy Jam:

this one and the last one for Cecile and Lisa James
  3:42pm Cecile:

ngh, Soul Train line down the comments board

thanks, Billy!

I should brave the masses and go see Todd Terry at 1st ave next month, right?
  3:44pm Paul:

Yo Cecile go for it and enjoy yourself and JACK Yo BODY:-)
  3:45pm RuPaul:

Put the bass in your walk!
  3:45pm north guinea hills:

I've seen Todd Terry before (I think the last time was 2004), and I had fun... (but it depends on the crowd)....
  3:47pm Cecile:

He'll probably go on at like 2 am, right? It's one of those extravaganzas with 15 deejays.

I've never been to a big Dj show like that, but I'm not getting any younger. And neither are the oldschool house guys.
  3:47pm fred:

Seriously now, all I wish from the lawmakers is to just stop harassing B-boys. I work for a contemporary music institute in Paris and it should have been embarrassing as hell to people there to be "protected" by the fucking police. I mean this place is the only resident of Igor Stravinsky place in Paris, and this guy had his share of controversies in his time. I just guess he was on the other side of the truncheon thing, times change...
  3:50pm djspiderman:

ahhhhhhhh jackin it bigtime ----8)
party recon report = dont listen to this show at work you may get fired for uncontrolabley struttin your funky stink like a menko ---
  3:51pm dc pat:

fred: http://operachic.typepad.com/photos/uncategorized/stravinsky_mugshot_resize.jpg
  3:52pm Cecile:

and that would be bad, spidey?
You kids and your lingo.
  3:55pm C++:

Smoke pot at work day - 2-17-10
  3:56pm north guinea hills:

2AM if you're lucky. I can only do that these days if I have a 3 day weekend, now that I have a jobby job and I've gotten old..... (i wasn't even that young back then, either)
  3:58pm Paul:

Yo if you all haven't checked Youtube for DJ Irie at the IDA 2009 you are missing one talented DJ/VJ who has taken things to another level. He will blow you away with his set.
  3:58pm Cecile:

it's on a Friday, but unless it's the best show in the world, I can't stay up that late.
Still it's kind of inexpensive and there's some good new Midwest DJs playing
  4:00pm Billy Jam:

yep Paul and i fyou look you will see that YouTube clip which was embedded on this Playlist by producer CHAD
  4:00pm meta_experience:

PatersonNJ checkin' in and sparking up. Hypnosis - Thanks Billy!
  4:01pm Paul:

Cecile, organise your cru go and have a really good time with them. Enjoy the night and party.
  4:02pm Cecile:

I'm a wolfpack of one for most things, Paul.

Maybe I could talk to some of my girlfriends.
  4:06pm fred:

Yeah, what I meant, though not that first degree.
I mean with all this guy did to open up things, isn't it a shame to have cops clearing up the space when dark-skinned types claim the space? There was no such intervention when a white guy set up his feedback guitar clinic, and somehow I think the very claim to the official mantle of arbiter is part of what makes IRCAM irrelevant.

Boulez is something else though. I haven't seen him much, but I think he's legit.
  4:07pm Ike:

Hey Paterson, just out of curiosity, you get any interference from a reggae pirate at 90.9? That's not cool, that pirate taking a frequency nudging right up next to FMU and causing problems.
  4:10pm fred:

(I was replying to dc pat, sorry for the delay)
  4:20pm Glenn L:

Think it's time to call a production meeting to order.
  4:23pm C++:

I wonder if I can claim the anxiety I get when I smoke pot as a reason for med-mar
  4:27pm meta_experience:

Ike - yep - though it but interference drops as you drive out W on 80.
  4:27pm Cousin Creep:

Quick Joey Small is a classic, thanks for playing that one...

  4:29pm Paul:

Cecile I am the same but when I want to go to something I go, as I know I will wonder how the gig was if I don't go. You sound as if you are really up for this. Ask your girlfriends go party and have a great night.
  4:30pm Paul:

Yo Bill, any chance of dropping some Tu-Ki, Scary Eire or Ri-Ra?
  4:36pm DJ Icewater:

Yo billy, i'm checking you out from Brooklyn. Chowdown is hot but I prefer All U Can Eat by the Disco 3. You need to let the listeners decide the hotter food track.
  4:37pm Cecile:

good point Paul. I have a month. I can beat the drums.
  4:42pm Barney:

Mayday Mayday! I too listened to KDAY in my sort of heyday.
  4:44pm C++:

fist time i've listened to PtNOtR and it has 1 me over - great stuff!

!reppin' 4 chi-town!
  4:45pm What!:

Del! Hooray!!!
  4:45pm ?:

  4:51pm Cecile:

wow, Paris, haven't heard that in a long time.

20 years! jeez.
  4:56pm D-Square:

I used to RIP UP dance floors with this in 1991!
  4:58pm dextrous:

Up The RiRa
  5:02pm Timi Dz...Nutz:

F-Yeah....Scary Eire!!!! now drop the Tu-Ki mix....
