Avatar 6:57pm Billy Jam:

earlier in the week had idea to do a megamix of versions of "I Fought The Law" so (in addition to picking some of my fave versions of the song) reached out to some WFMU listeners to ask if they wanted to contribute a version - some of these folks got back to me - and will be included in this week's show - these include DJ Pnutz & listener Berd in UK - Thanks to Jim the Poet for engineering today
