Listener comments!

  12:20am tajjy:

daaaaaaang he got stories
  12:27am BPF:

in da housey! rakim!!!
  12:43am Baby J:

I love Schooly's first album. I first heard of it in Rock 'n Roll Confidential around 1984. Dave Marsh wrote about the sparseness of the production. It sounded too cool, and Cold Money is great too.
  12:44am Adam in Lynnwood:

'Sup, 'sup?
  12:44am Baby J:

I see I missed Bad Brains. I toured with them for six years.
  12:45am Noah:

BPF!!!! Hey Adam & Baby!
  12:46am Adam in Lynnwood:

I still have regrets about selling back my Rykodisc comp of early Schooly D cuts.
  12:48am Adam in Lynnwood:

Hey, Noah!!! Sounding great! Baby J, YOU must have stories!!! Dang!!!! Earl is real solid. Invited me on their bus once just to talk about BB history. What a solid cat!
  12:49am Noah:

Brian Coleman has AMAZING stories... PICK up his book... today!! soooooo DAMN GOOD!!
  12:50am Adam in Lynnwood:

Israel was the nicest dude as well.
  12:50am Baby J:

What's the name of his book?
  12:50am Adam in Lynnwood:

On it, tomorrow!!!! Thanks, Noah, for the nod.
  12:51am Baby J:

Israel was good. The Hudson's are nuts.
  12:53am kookaburra:

pa pa!
  12:53am Baby J:

The Roots, this is happening.
  12:55am SCOTT NY:

damn i remember when that P S K joint came on at the roxy shit you woke me up noah i was sleepn thanks dog
  12:58am Noah:

Hey Scott, Kookaburra, ...

Brian's book is called "CHECK THE TECHNIQUE"
  12:58am Adam in Lynnwood:

I definitely agree about H.R. And his infamously crazy, self, Baby J, and my experience with Earl was very limited, but he was real cool to me, for mere moments.
  1:00am Adam in Lynnwood:

I met Sid as well, which struck me because he seemed ground down by dealing with nonsense and not getting due credit.
  1:03am Baby J:

I remember Sid as being a cool guy, and definitely in the background despite his history with them.
  1:04am Ice-T:

Metal-rap: BODY COUNT
  1:05am Adam in Lynnwood:

Ya, he seemed to dig that I had him sign my Glen Friedman "Fuck You Too" book.
  1:06am Adam in Lynnwood:

Beastie Boys/Kerry King is a bit of a stretch, but......
  1:08am Baby J:

So what, you're traveling north from D.C.?
  1:10am Adam in Lynnwood:

Wha huh? Me?
  1:10am Baby J:

No, the theme.
  1:11am Adam in Lynnwood:

Got it.
  1:12am Adam in Lynnwood:

Can we just take a minute to visualize that staggeringly beautiful King Tee album cover photo? Whewwww!
  1:13am Adam in Lynnwood:

  1:13am osvi:

DOC Best Coast! I remember bumping the hell out of the flea market cassette.
  1:16am Adam in Lynnwood:

DOC wore his baseball cap with the most serious business style!!
  1:16am Adam in Lynnwood:

Highhhhh up.
  1:17am Adam in Lynnwood:

Made him look 10 feet tall.
  1:25am osvi:

Oh, damn, you got the soundtrack to my high school years, playa. Handle that. Ah, I recall pissing off momsdukes with this...
  1:27am BPF:

  1:28am The One:

Hey, the Matrix has you, I'm serious. FBI gave sworn confessions that FBI used warrantless searches to inject tiny hairlike electrode devices (aka 'cochlear' devices that record sound) into people of the news/entertainment industry.
  1:30am The One:

Noah, you should tell everybody to lock up doorchains because the FBI under Bush have been doing racist antisemitic hate crimes, such as illegal, covert device implantation. In fact, Bush even implanted devices into Obama.
  1:33am Noah:

The FBI? As in "Criminal Minds" .. LOVE that show....
  2:12am Adam in Lynnwood:

I'm a dummy. I HAVE worn my Bad Brains Vans. Up the aces!!
  2:14am Noah:

  2:16am Adam in Lynnwood:

Brian's correct though. They're real nice. Worth buying a 2nd pair for the pedestal. ;-)
  2:16am The One:

I'm serious.
  2:17am Adam in Lynnwood:

I never wear my JMJ's however.
  2:18am The One:

I'm serious Noah. Racist antisemitic agents used warrantless searches to inject tiny hairlike devices into countless numbers of people during the Bush years. There was even testimony before the House BioEthics committee.
  2:20am Adam in Lynnwood:

Noah, I'm listening to a percentage of what you're doing right now...and I have no government clearance. The horror!
  2:21am The One:

There was an article in 'Wired' magazine about James Walbert who was involuntarily microchipped by some fascist losers. You should look it up bro and tell everybody to lock up doorchains until all hte federal agencies are abolished.

  2:22am The One:

You have a great show Noah.
  2:23am michael c:

wooo...sounding like another great show...but the message board is
trending D Emory
  2:28am Adam in Lynnwood:

  2:29am Noah:

Ahhh, ok, let's move this back to FOOD!!
  2:31am Adam in Lynnwood:

I'd like to propose that the show's theme is the undeniably industry-wide influence of Darlene. Am I on track, or the 2nd son one?
  2:31am michael c:

hungry jacks yo...working on that t-shirt
  2:36am Noah:

OK Michael, well email me your size for a Coffee Break shirt.. Noah@wfmu.org, can you mail me a Hungry Jack burger too?
  2:37am michael c:

yeah. an angry angus double
  2:38am HeLL Fire Klub Kid:

I'm about to make a Mill off of mixtapes. Once I download
  2:40am Joshua K:

Sure is a lot of music out there in the world.
  2:43am Adam in Lynnwood:

Ohhhh, dang, where's my 7A3 cassette?
  2:49am Adam in Lynnwood:

Charles found a way out; didn't go postal.
  2:53am Adam in Lynnwood:

Another great show in the books.
  2:58am Adam in Lynnwood:

Run to the hills!
  11:37am Mikey:

Thank you Brian Coleman and everyone for tuning in, super fun show!
