Welcome to the all new WFMU SUMMER 2015 14 Week Schedule with a great new lineup including for Fridays which upon reading it prompted Bryce's mom to exclaim: "Fridays gonna be off the hook on WFMU, YO!"
Avatar 10:47am Billy Jam:

On today's all new summer schedule extended 3 hour radio show - WFMU "Put The Needle on the Record" 3pm to 6pm (ET) = noon to 3pm CA time I will be also be featuring the talents of guest DJs Loop Skywalker (hip-hop/skratch) and The MIghty Grouse (Calypso / island mix), will be doing dedications to both Pumpkinhead and Ornette Coleman, and interviewing former show guest/ NYC emcee turned film-maker Mtume Gant (aka Core Rhythm) whose brand new MC themed short film "Spit" will be featured in this weekend's San Francisco Black Film Fest. The rapper/filmmaker flies out from NYC this morning to join me during today's California to New Jersey live remote broadcast from North Oakland's Corner Market (Telegraph & 61st streets). If you are in the Bay swing by today between noon and 3pm for the broadcast -bring da dank. Otherwise meet up this eve (6-9pm) in San Francisco at F8 in SoMa district on Folsom near 8th. There I will be hanging out with WFMU fans in the Bay like Toph One and Timi D as well as recording Live Human (feat DJ Quest, Andrew Kushin, and Albert Mathias) for next week's WFMU show. I plan to edit down a 20-30 minute mix from their two sets this eve at F8.
