Before fully synchronizing for 2014 - I wanted to take a quick listen back to some of the highlights of 2013 - well as much as can be squeezed into a one-hour show - hence why I don't think I will waste much time talking today - except at very end of show for the legal ID. Thanks to all tuned in live on the FM dial and online - and to those catching this show in archives - THANK YOU for supporting W F M U

Billy: was curious, what DJ headphones would you in fact be caught dead with? Just wondering... I bought Shure 550s the other day for other purposes....like tuning out annoying neighbors

Always good to start the new year off Skillz Rap Up...like black eyed peas and collared greens...

Hey BabyDoll There....!!!
Avatar Fri. 1/3/14 7:13pm Billy Jam:

the only ones are the ones that don't work - like umbrellas, sunglasses, and gloves- headphones have a habit of getting lost - so I go with the ones I don't care if I lose - and are both cheap to replace - like those basic SONY ones that sell for only $14.99 - $19.99 but sound great and don't break -

WOT UP TIMI D and LS MONKEY _
  Fri. 1/3/14 7:16pm Timi Dz Nutz:

Hey B....All Good here. I'm hold'n it down at work Sarah keep'n the fort up!!!
Peace All In The New Year.!.!.!
     Fri. 1/3/14 7:16pm LovecraftDude888:

I gotcha. My friend Corn used to DJ at various clubs in NYC and used basic Sony monitor headphones for ages, beat the hell out of 'em. They served the purpose. I got the Shures cause I wanted to use them for various things, at home, and tune out all else and still get the bass action.

Man, I wish MC900FTJesus would make a comeback...

peace to the nations! Big up WFMU, 2013 was the first year I've ever been played on the radio, and to have the tastemaker Billy Jam chose The Work Album as his top pick for 2013... no words can express how awesome that feels! Hip Hop Slammer for life, Happy New Year! Big things coming in 2014
