Flavor Flav  answering machine message   Options     1989    one of the more memorable answering machine messages I received was this one back in 1989 from Flavor Flav when I was trying to set up an interview before PE came to town (Oakland, CA) - Funny thing was my room mate at the time (not a hip-hop fan) had no idea who had left message. "Some guy named Flavey or something left you a message on the machine. Not sure what he said" - my roomie told me - hah hah

Avatar Fri. 10/12/12 7:32pm Billy Jam:

If it werent for James Brown - there would be no hip-hop as we know it today - God bless JB - And for more of this funky funky soul music stay tuned for Mister Fine Wine next after this show - He always kills it - best show on the radio is "Downtown Soulvillle" -

Thank-you for listening to W F M U. Thank you to board op Nate..... Up next is Mr Fine Wine and "Downtown Soulville" followed by Pseu Brown and then Rich Hazelton -
  Fri. 10/12/12 7:57pm Frank in MD:

Frank is a name - unlike "Dude" But maybe that is the first name "Dude" - with last name either "Really?" or maybe just "Troll" - something not usually found on WFMU playlists where listeners and commentators tend to have both respect and taste - unlike you "Dude"
  Fri. 10/12/12 7:57pm TheRapperWithNoName:

That was some real shit right there. BAS-1 big up
