Nice to have you back on the radio!!
  Fri. 12/30/11 7:55pm Billy Jam:

I am going to get a ticket for speeding but when the cop asks "You know why I pulled you over?" I will make such a witty response that he will laugh out loud and say "Go on now. Be more careful in future"
  Fri. 12/30/11 7:55pm Adam in Portland:

I think Billy Jam should just jump Downtown Soulville on a skycycle, with a banner celebrating Mr. Fine Wine.
  Fri. 12/30/11 7:57pm Billy Jam:

hey thanks to all for listening.....stay tuned for a great nite and weekend of music on W F M U - As someone said here before (and I agree) this show is too short (not Too $hort) not long enough - hence little talk and only carefully selected songs for you - THANKS - HAPPY NEW FUCKIN YEAR - hells jeyeah!!!!
  Fri. 12/30/11 7:58pm Billy Jam:

PS shout out to JEFF MULLAN
  Fri. 12/30/11 8:02pm DJ Eons One:
