peace, full support to WFMU and Billy Jam for keeping it real and not on that funny money
Avatar Fri. 10/10/14 7:04pm Billy Jam:

last week we were at 6% - now we're up to 56%….THANK YOU……..for your support during our silent marathon that is for improving our new performance space…..Today I take it back to the years 1989 and 1990 to KALX radio with my man G-Spot….featuring music from 1989…and call in raps from January 1990 + some new music too at end of show
Avatar Fri. 10/10/14 7:07pm Billy Jam:

PS this music is all off cassette air check from then….wanted to keep that cassette tape hip-hop quality…….will be playing some call-in raps today…..but next week will be playing a whole show of them…..They were the best time in my radio career…..the late 80's/early 90's when hip-hop was starting to explode……It was also a time when crack cocaine epidemic was at an all time - something reflected in the call in raps

The 90.1 WMFU signal was reported out during the last show. I'm driving home soon and will see if it comes in for me.

love me some Billy Jam on Friday nights.
Avatar Fri. 10/10/14 7:10pm Billy Jam:

My whole approach to programming hip-hop radio shows from when I started was to focus on as much new music as possible…….as well as play things only once and if it came down to a live (IE totally unique) piece of audio/live radio over a record - go with the unique live thing every time

"...we just lost a listener/ could've been nobody or it could've been Kissinger." Har har, Kissinger reminisces about bombing Asian countries while checking out some hip hop?
