thanks to YOU for supporting WFMU and for tuning into this show today - Also stay tuned for Mr Fine Wine (back from London) who comes on next and major shout out to Becky/Honky Tonk Radio Girl who did an amazing job filling in for Downtown Soulville last week - she played some incredible soulful tracks - albeit a lot of heartbreaker themed ones - Also shout out to fellow WFMU volunteer Mark R. who is handling the board-op/engineering duties today back in Jersey City while I am on location in CA and doing the show from here in the Bay Area - Mark R. is the host of “Circle Time” on WFMU whose music mix, one that might include Duck-Duck Goose, caters to “sensory experiences, socialization and fun.” NOTE that MARK R. will be filling in for Matt Fiveash on Weekly World Blues on this upcoming Tuesday night. Meanwhile check out Mark R’s archives page where you can listen back to his most recent show from July 7th ("Hello, it's me…..again") URL link to playlist and archive = wfmu.org...
Avatar 3:47pm Billy Jam:

today's show (like most shows I have been doing this year) is nearly all brand new 2018 hip-hop music -that I have chosen from approx 5 hours of new music I went thru recently - picking what I consider to be the best of the best -just one person's opinion -but it is genuine and consistent. I will also include a few older cuts but they are new-ish too since one is a reissue of a long forgotten track/act, another is a little heard freestyle from back in the day and another is a new mix of an old / golden era classic by the same group who did freestyle on my show back in 93 and whose lyrics are referenced in the title of today's show and intro song / speaking of today's show and the image atop the playlist - NOTE: the first person to hear/notice and identify (with first comment) the sample of Randy Savage/The Macho Man will win a prize. All you got to do is to post the first comment on this comments board to I.D. the late great 80's/90's professional wrestler star. After your comment has been qualified as correct answer I will post a comment to u with more info. OK? thanks to YOU and thanks to F M U

am already planning the PTNOTRWorldTour2018/2019 - thanks to Spidermank's idea - and thinking of going to either or both Washington State and North Carolina to do show with member of Marlowe

again reminder to check out Mark R.'s archives and his upcoming show next Tuesday
Avatar 7:21pm northguineahills:

yeah, been vibing to Marlowe's drop lately, very deep!
  7:23pm ALF of Hip Hop Slam:

Peace and Blessings everyone! Right now I’m in Okinawa, Japan getting some rest and relaxation! It’s so funny that back on August 17, 2005 Billy Jam conducted an phone interview on me at WFMU while I was stationed here serving in the Air Force in Okinawa. You can check it out in the archives. It was a pretty interesting interview. During the interview, I couldn’t say any negative things about Bush at that time because I would’ve definitely got in trouble.
Avatar 7:25pm Billy Jam:

besides the whole lyrical flow and production values the lyrics of this song are truly locked in a different time period - examples including "always live never DAT" :)
Avatar 7:25pm northguineahills:

@ALF: ahhh, you were stationed at Kadena (I grew up at NAF Atsugi outside of Yokota)

BTW - in the intro mix for this week's show I included a tiny bit of ALF at beginning - few seconds in was ALF working "Pu the needle on the......." on his turntable composition intro for this show - ALF has been down since Day 1 and is part of WFMU + PTNOTR
Avatar 7:29pm northguineahills:

Thanks Billy + Alf et al, gotsa leave work, 78 hours is too much for no OT. Salud, y que todos tengan un gran fin de semana!

Hi, Billy Jam. If the World Tour includes a visit with Sammus, that would be great.

  7:41pm Tall Paul:

The Irish people aren't happy with Trump's comment saying Ireland is part of the UK. To say we are pissed is being polite
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:42pm mb:

  7:43pm ALF of Hip Hop Slam:

@Tall Paul When did the nimrod say Ireland is part of the UK?
