Here's a pledge from the future, and appreciation for the past, thanks for the present, hope for the future. And watch that cholesterol thing. I do want that "60 years in radio" premium

peace, full support to WFMU and Billy Jam for keeping it real and not on that funny money
Avatar 7:04pm Billy Jam:

last week we were at 6% - now we're up to 56%….THANK YOU……..for your support during our silent marathon that is for improving our new performance space…..Today I take it back to the years 1989 and 1990 to KALX radio with my man G-Spot….featuring music from 1989…and call in raps from January 1990 + some new music too at end of show
Avatar 7:07pm Billy Jam:

PS this music is all off cassette air check from then….wanted to keep that cassette tape hip-hop quality…….will be playing some call-in raps today…..but next week will be playing a whole show of them…..They were the best time in my radio career…..the late 80's/early 90's when hip-hop was starting to explode……It was also a time when crack cocaine epidemic was at an all time - something reflected in the call in raps
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:08pm Ken From Hyde Park:

The 90.1 WMFU signal was reported out during the last show. I'm driving home soon and will see if it comes in for me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:08pm steve:

love me some Billy Jam on Friday nights.
Avatar 7:10pm Billy Jam:

My whole approach to programming hip-hop radio shows from when I started was to focus on as much new music as possible…….as well as play things only once and if it came down to a live (IE totally unique) piece of audio/live radio over a record - go with the unique live thing every time

Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:14pm Ike:

"...we just lost a listener/ could've been nobody or it could've been Kissinger." Har har, Kissinger reminisces about bombing Asian countries while checking out some hip hop?
