This show is dedicated to my auntie Phil who died yesterday…….Her passing, which I just found out about last night, was the latest in a string of shit in my life this week…..Yup this week has been the most challenging for me - one in which I have faced more B.S. than anyone should….resulting me in not been able to do stuff like prep this show and ending fucking RADIO edits that I am so sick of doing that I may quit FM radio altogether like I did back in the 90's when I got kicked off the air and went pirate fuckin radio….. …. END of rant ….TNX 4 listening .and TNX to Carol for board op/ ADA and Kimzilla for contributing…..peace out to the MUSIC that i hope will heal me

Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 8/28/15 3:29pm Studio B Ben:

I will say that your show was a bright light during a really bad job I up until recently. Getting to that Friday hour of hip hop healing was such a cleansing thing for me during that shitshow, and I would feel the stress and anxiety melt away and I'd be in such a good, free head space for my weekend instead of dwelling on the week that was. Healing power of music, for sure.
Avatar Fri. 8/28/15 3:31pm Billy Jam:

Paris is scheduled to stop by towards or at end of today's show to record an interview for 2 weeks from now - the final day of this show -when I am also scheduling Chuck D for a live phone in……he has been on this show before…..and PE have a great new album out…..am also trying to get the missing piece of the political rap triangle - Boots Riley….willl keep u posted
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 8/28/15 3:31pm Studio B Ben:

And now that i've survived that and have a much better gig, the show is just an ongoing celebration for me.
Avatar Fri. 8/28/15 3:37pm Billy Jam:

It's working - the music is kicking in and healing my soul :)

Aw man, no title no album, no label on DJ Technics! Must be a homemade un-reproducable Billy Jam recipe, only to be heard again by looping this archived show!

Yo, Billy Jam! Sending love to you my man. Do what your heart tells you. I'd miss your show silly, but you do what you gonna do, mayne.

Speaking of hearts, RIP Autie Phil.

As long as youre on a radio somewhere i will still be tuning in brother.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 8/28/15 4:31pm JakeGould:

Hey Billy Jam. My heart and respect goes out with you during this time of loss. In my 20s I lost both of my parents within months of each other. Two big lessons I learned: You have to do what you have to do to keep yourself balanced and content; not always happy but maybe on the road to it. Also, loss is like waves a pool… The first day it’s one thing… Then a week passes and it ebbs in you again… Then a month later ditto and so on… So loss is something you live with and do the best with as you can. Just stay strong whatever “strong” might mean to you.

Also—in my humble opinion—FM radio is one thing and WFMU is another. So hey. Be cool..

Slainte Billy, good luck to you in this world, my friend. The music will help soothe the savage breast.

Read a quote from Steve d'Angelo of Harborside Health Center yesterday... to paraphrase, speaking of his famous cannabis dispensary, he's about wellness, which he defines broadly to include medical conditions, but also an enhanced sense of play and intimacy...

I think I'm in a time warp. Is it Nov 1024? I replay this from the archives way too much. Billy Jam, thanks for persevering, this has been a great summer of 3-hour shows!

of ADA Set 3 the dj/producer wrote = "had a good time making these, really feels good to receive the accolades for them as well." + "This is # 3, last of the Trilogy. I feel about it, all live, all vinyl, no edits."
