Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:05pm Skirkie:

There are some many times when Frangry or Michele will say something and my first thought is, "Billy Jam should mix that in." or I suppose DJ Alf.
Avatar 7:05pm Billy Jam:

thanks to all for tuning in - and special thanks to DJ ALF for the latest SUW remix - so long as Frangry and Michele keep making great sample ready quotable comments we'll keep making remixes -

Avatar 7:35pm Billy Jam:

thanks for the props Sean Daily - one of the advantages of doing the one hour show vs. the 3 hours is that you have to trim it down to the best of the best -no filler :)
  7:36pm JJ Bass-T:

aaaaahhhhh shit! Charizma!!!!!
  7:39pm Nate:

Avatar 7:41pm Sean D. Daily:

  7:44pm JJ Bass-T:

yeah raw shit - just like jamesjamone noted above......raw and real
  7:50pm Angie:

would much rather listen to these songs about guns than some of these frustrating TV news talk shows going on and on talking ad nauseum but talking bulls**t
Avatar 7:56pm Billy Jam:
