Avatar 6:51pm Billy Jam:

hello SeanG from earlier and all else tuning in now during live broadcast + later in the archives to this Best of 2019 hip-hop special - part two in three part series when I will play an subjective mix of tracks / artists released over the past year - that, given the sheer wealth of quality new hip-hop dropping in the past 12 months, is merely scratching the surface. Thanks to U 4 Listening to F M U + to Jim The Poet handling the engineering board-op duties in the NJ radio station studios for me while I am over here (again this week) in Dublin, Ireland
