Avatar 5:26pm Billy Jam:

#Femcee #CallIn = As with so many WFMU shows, this one is inspired by a listener (with a #number) who notified me via these comments on last week's show that previous show guest Sammus was in town last night for a Don Giovanni Showcase 2017 at the Knitting Factory in BK (performing tracks from her new album "Pieces In Space"). Hence I reached out to the Itacha NY emcee to invite her on today's show. And since another female rap talent and previous show guest - home state/Brick City, NJ femcee Rah Digga - is doing a female showcase tomorrow (Feb 4) in the Bay Area (along with Lyrics Jones & Pam the Funkstress) - reached out to her too as (phone-in) guest - with the theme of today's show been the Year of the Woman 2017. Something we will today initiate - join in if u want - on this mostly phone-in show that will (like everything on freeform WFMU radio) take on its own direction and flow.

Shout-outs to two dedicated WFMU listeners who have had medical issues lately - TIMI D…. who went in for surgery two days ago and fortunately found out does not have cancer…He is in recovery mode now from his surgery….ALso shout out to our man Spidermank -who, after not hearing from him past two weeks on this comments, sent him an email last week to check in and he responded that, "I injured tendons/ligaments in my shoulder and am having to basically keep still till it heals. Its drivin me nuts , can't work , can't sleep , can't do much at all. Its messed up my sleep patterns so much that I am in a different time realm and didn't catch PTNOTR live (caught up on the archives fank fook).Am slowly gettin better and will soon be back to live listening.(and hopefully working again- am skint ,I dont get no welfare so half the contents of my house ends up on ebay, hahah)" - Wish these guys well!

Anyone else in NYC go to the Yemeni Bodega strike rally at Brooklyn Borough Hall? It was pretty amazing. Those folks don’t close often but they closed. Really nice to see notes of support from kids and adults on the closed gates of stores.

I hope every new Marvel comic movie has a scene with a Nazi—at least one—getting punched in the face.
