In honor of Saint Patricks Day this is an all Irish music show in celebration of the smoking of the Green - speaking of which in four weeks or so it will be 4:20 - Friday April 20th and hence a dank themed show - send in your requests today. thanks

I put the flame to the spliff every time Billy puts the Needle on the Record. Should we email requests for the 4/20 show, or just post em here?
Avatar 7:05pm Paddy O'Jam:

  7:06pm other david:

Awesome start

Evening Billy & listeners! Am sitting in the cultural metropolis of Naas, diligently fulfilling the stereotype - having a Guinness!
  7:07pm Caryn:

Feckin' good start to the show!
  7:07pm Mark T in VT:

Thanks Billy Jam. I am not the one to tout being "Irish" especially on the 17th like so many Americans do. But my mom's B-day is on the same day (tomorrow) and her grandfather came from Ireland to Canada then to VT. Kellett. My mom would always color everything she could including milk green with food coloring on the day. Sometimes even the toilette bowl would be green.
  7:13pm Skirkie:

Fact: The first hip-hop cd I owned was Billy's Put the Needle on the Irish Hip Hop Record from 2009.
  7:17pm Bad Ronald:

May the road rise up to meet you Billy Jam. I'm boiling briskets in beer for tomorrow and Cypress Hill "Hits from the Bong" comes to mind for 420 if it's not too pedestrian. Peace.
  7:19pm ALF of Hip Hop Slam:

Yep MK! Should be fun

It's surreal to be in Ireland listening to a NJ station, what - 3000 miles away - and hearing artists from my own backyard for the first time

Thanks Billy
