WFMU   bits from first WFMU show by Billy Jam June 22 2005   Options     the new summer 2005 season already underway by a couple of weeks was when - out from CA to NYC for the whole summer - visited WFMU to say hi to Brian Turner who I knew for good few years from sending him releases on my record label for WFMU + he would send me playlists + Brian had also invited me to record a couple Bay Area DJ specials for WFMU for guest DJ show he curated sometimes. I told him that I was going to be out in NYC for the that summer of 2005 and if there was a DJ slot open would love to do it. He said there was - late Tuesday / technically Wednesday from 2am to 6am. Four hours! It was great as it allowed me to stretch out from just scratch music or just hip-hop in general - but encompass other areas I've always loved - electronic, punk, reggae etc. - My plan was to just do the summer show and then go back to California - but I ended staying on in NYC and at WFMU - calling this show "Bring That Beat Back" for the first season - but then changed it - after a friend of mine was trying to remember the name of the show "Bring That Beat Back" but instead said "Put The Needle On The Record" - to which I laughed and said - yeah actually its one of those old school well sampled phrases. This is from the first show back in June 2005 that I re-listened to for first time in 13 years (thank-U WFMU archives) and grabbed a few lil soundbites recorded via mic-ed speaker for grimey effect + got ideas to play couple of songs from that first show including the first two today - Also included is the first in the weekly summer 2005 season installment of "The Crazy Adventures of Little Dynamo & Amazing Grace" - the bit called "You have no money + You stole from Bill"     
Kool DJ EQ  Death Of Hip Hop   Options Return of the DJ Vol. 1  1995  this was very first record/track I played on WFMU back on June 22 2005 - although it was from one decade earlier -same year as the Crazy Adventures recorded by NoNekNed (also a scratch DJ) - At this stage in 2005 in my radio history - my two previous stations had been KALX (where I returned in the early to mid 2000's and did the Sunday Morning show for a bit along with such others as DJ Pone - Before that in late 90's in 2000's had done KPFA all scratch show - and for the five years before that - pirate fuckin radio (94-99)    0:01:22 (Pop‑up)
Squeak E. Clean presents Bald Head Slick / 2Mex  I Win You Lose   Options   2004  2Mex featuring GURU (as Baldhead Slick) - another track I played on that first show in June 2005 - back when the gone too soon Gang Starr emcee was still with us    0:04:41 (Pop‑up)
J.Cole   1985 (DJ Premier 1966 remix)   Options   2018  Gang Starr continuation  *   0:07:26 (Pop‑up)
Black Thought & 9th Wonder  9th Vs Thought   Options   2018  this show celebrating 13 years on WFMU is dedicated to BRIAN TURNER who gave me this much appreciated opportunity - Brian is not on the new summer 2018 schedule you will notice. His show like his endless musical knowledge are missed. I hear he moved to SF so will be sure to see him soon  *   0:12:34 (Pop‑up)
The Custodian of Records  947 Raw   Options   2018    *   0:15:20 (Pop‑up)
Brownout   Prophets of rage   Options Fear of a Brown Planet  2018  another killer cut off this recommended full length reinterpreation of the PE classic - not a cover wanna be PE knock off but just an inspired reworking into new exciting places  *   0:17:40 (Pop‑up)
Gwop Sullivan   All About You   Options   2018  this guy/producer (who I played last week too) had me with his great name GWOP SULLIVAN - and won me with his intricite ear for beats and sounds  *   0:20:24 (Pop‑up)
Darko The Super   Bike Spokes   Options   2018  more great new innovative hip-hop - if u like MC Paul Barman (who I will play later in show) you will appreciate Darko The Super's dope lyrical flow  *   0:21:37 (Pop‑up)
Jedi Mind Tricks  Certified Dope (feat. Eamon)   Options   2018  still going strong and still killing it - this is an instant chant along classic  *   0:23:30 (Pop‑up)

Brian was the heart of this radio station i think. maybe its no coincidence he has gone at the same time as the fall. i am not very good at getting old and accepting inevitable changes
