This show is dedicated to my auntie Phil who died yesterday…….Her passing, which I just found out about last night, was the latest in a string of shit in my life this week…..Yup this week has been the most challenging for me - one in which I have faced more B.S. than anyone should….resulting me in not been able to do stuff like prep this show and ending fucking RADIO edits that I am so sick of doing that I may quit FM radio altogether like I did back in the 90's when I got kicked off the air and went pirate fuckin radio….. …. END of rant ….TNX 4 listening .and TNX to Carol for board op/ ADA and Kimzilla for contributing…..peace out to the MUSIC that i hope will heal me

I will say that your show was a bright light during a really bad job I up until recently. Getting to that Friday hour of hip hop healing was such a cleansing thing for me during that shitshow, and I would feel the stress and anxiety melt away and I'd be in such a good, free head space for my weekend instead of dwelling on the week that was. Healing power of music, for sure.

Paris is scheduled to stop by towards or at end of today's show to record an interview for 2 weeks from now - the final day of this show -when I am also scheduling Chuck D for a live phone in……he has been on this show before…..and PE have a great new album out…..am also trying to get the missing piece of the political rap triangle - Boots Riley….willl keep u posted

Aw man, no title no album, no label on DJ Technics! Must be a homemade un-reproducable Billy Jam recipe, only to be heard again by looping this archived show!
Mark R.:

Personal Jesus/Tainted Love changing speeds rules! You're an artiste, sir.

The Shut Up Weirdo Project tops 'em all!

My condolences Billy

Love the show

Yo, Billy Jam! Sending love to you my man. Do what your heart tells you. I'd miss your show silly, but you do what you gonna do, mayne.

Speaking of hearts, RIP Autie Phil.

just posted pic from today's remote broadcast - dedicated to my auntie Phil who died yesterday - my mom's sister…..life sucks sometimes………art in background by MARS - note that HIERO DAY 4 is coming up on Sept 7 and since I am delayed here for an extra week will be able to attend - YAY - shout out to Gabriel in NJ/NY + chris in SF
loop skywalker:

As long as youre on a radio somewhere i will still be tuning in brother.

Hey Billy Jam. My heart and respect goes out with you during this time of loss. In my 20s I lost both of my parents within months of each other. Two big lessons I learned: You have to do what you have to do to keep yourself balanced and content; not always happy but maybe on the road to it. Also, loss is like waves a pool… The first day it’s one thing… Then a week passes and it ebbs in you again… Then a month later ditto and so on… So loss is something you live with and do the best with as you can. Just stay strong whatever “strong” might mean to you.

Also—in my humble opinion—FM radio is one thing and WFMU is another. So hey. Be cool..

Read a quote from Steve d'Angelo of Harborside Health Center yesterday... to paraphrase, speaking of his famous cannabis dispensary, he's about wellness, which he defines broadly to include medical conditions, but also an enhanced sense of play and intimacy...
