Good afternoon Billy and all listeners. I'm sick at home instead of at a show, I'm sure this show will heal me in time to go see Yair Yona (listener and skilled musician) tomorrow

@Cecile: I'm glad you like it. I'm deep into it these days, listening while reading the "liner notes" on my way to work. Great stories and pictures, it's a world I never knew existed
  3:15pm loop skywalker:

Hey Spidermank...well said..lets float :)
Avatar 3:17pm Cecile:

My husband figures that world disappeared right after WW2. I'm still going to bring it up so his parents can see if they knew any of the people - they are in their 90s!

Hey there everyone?! It's Friday! Aww yeaaaah!

Shomari, any plans to air it in Minneapolis?

eyup loop , lookin forward to your set tonite, Billy Jam summer featured DJ specials have been monumental , you guys bring it on everytime and thats a wikkid big deal booomph.
Avatar 3:21pm TheRapperWithNoName:

I heard Souls of Mischief for the first time thanks to Pat Channita's video part in an early 411 skate video.
Avatar 3:21pm fred:

@Cecile: It may be gone, but it left traces. I've been remembering some of your comments about Finnish communities while reading about them, for instance
Avatar 3:22pm Cecile:

that's true, Fred. And you can still run into a kantele recital here and there up north.
Avatar 3:22pm ADA:

Peace, that was a great interview! Excited to see the film when it comes out

  3:23pm ALF of Hip Hop Slam:

I thank Stinke wholeheartedly for starting experience into underground hip hop. I was in college and was wondering what happened to Hiero and stumbled across the old Hiero site back in 96', 97'
  3:34pm Donte P:

this is classic shit here!
  3:38pm loop skywalker:

one of the greatest hip hop rekkids ever
Avatar 3:39pm Cecile:

I didn't remember seeing the video until I just looked at it. Now it comes back! I thought it was so cool that a rap group would be on a wild kind of beach in their video.

drop dem beats! Whaddup, Billy
Avatar 3:41pm Cecile:

Avatar 3:44pm Cecile:

Shomari, maybe the 5th Element record store would be interested. And DEFINITELY contact the Sound Unseen film festival in MPLS. www.soundunseen.com
  3:45pm loop skywalker:

i cant remember who i shared my cigarettes with at a nottingham gig from the Hieroglyphics
Avatar 3:49pm spidermank:

uplifting , the whole thing.
  3:49pm Golde:

I am wondering if anyone can help me. I have some really precious records and want to ensure they are cleaned and cared for in the best possible way. They are one of a kind. It would mean the world to me if someone could recommend someone I can turn to, preferably in the Manhattan area, for help.
  3:51pm ALF of Hip Hop Slam:

This is a TIGHT interview Billy! Looking forward to seeing Shomari's work! :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:52pm Grouse:

the Paris thing wasn't a sample I was curious about. it sounded like he was quoting this Jeff Daniels speech verbatim: www.youtube.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:52pm chris:

Golde, I bet Fabio and the crew at Earwax Records (Williamsburg North) have some excellent advice - www.yelp.com...
Avatar 3:53pm spidermank:

@Golde , Wood glue is great for shiftin shit, 8) . but for expert care someone here will sort you out I am sure , WFMU is a vinyl castle
Avatar 3:55pm Cecile:

also, their treatment of women was glossed over.
  3:59pm Golde:

Thank you both for the kind words and suggestions! It would be a great shame if these recordings were let go...
  4:01pm Golde:

hahahaha!! You're funny, B!!

Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:04pm Mike East:

@Golde - you could also reach out to MAC of Antique phonograph hour...those cylinders require lots of TLC for sure
  4:04pm loop skywalker:

its all educational Billy :)
Avatar 4:08pm fred:

I will! Pierre said he'd be there, so Alessia might be there too. That could make the quorum for a listener meet-up

  4:28pm loop skywalker:

ive been rockin the air turntables along the guitar from Mike and Drums from spidermank
Avatar 4:30pm spidermank:

hahah I am up for it , even though as you know being in a band is more complicated than a NASA expedition I am still up for it
  4:31pm loop skywalker:

i heard the complete mega mix this morning...its the best turntable collaboration ive done.....mind blown!
Avatar 4:33pm ADA:

It was an honor working on the mix with those 2, for my set I used strictly Hip Hop Slam records in homage of Billy Jam's historic label... all vinyl. And the Intro is a joint skratch collab that came out so dope you should consider using it as your official intro to this show... :)
  4:34pm spodiodi:

We're listening to a commercial commercial. Times change.
  4:34pm spodiodi:

How much goes to the IDF?
  4:36pm loop skywalker:

ADA the intro is awesome...brilliant choice of vocal

spodiodi, its actually a non-commercial non-commercial. this is the revolution. dig it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:39pm Īke:

Yeah, @Steve, very cool. Ken also appeared on a Radio Survivor podcast but I like this interview more.

Trump: Republican nominee. Ken: Democratic nominee. Let's go.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:42pm Mike East:

I think people SHOULD give up their FB and twitter for fmu. I have neither, but I'm here.
  4:42pm spodiodi:

The commercial, non-open-source hosting service, is non-commercial, and revolutionary? How's that?

The software sounds interesting, but the commercial hosting service sounds kinda... :\
  4:42pm marc:

Flea circus should be the title of the Republican campaign for President
Avatar 4:44pm Cecile:

Loved that Flea Circus record cover
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:47pm chris:

spodiodi, OSS often relies on services to raise money to support itself... don't confuse making money to support a cause with putting profit in peoples' pockets, right? peace, man.
Avatar 4:48pm ADA:

WFMU should be syndicated like NPR... instead of NPR! Free these airwaves, they are locked up and suffering!
  4:49pm spodiodi:

Cris, I'm aware. I'm not confused, I'm suspicious.

And there's a larger issue... was hoping you'd one day take it on. Sorry to hear about your pending hiatus (for selfish reasons.) On a personal note: hope it all goes really well for ya.
  4:50pm spodiodi:

What kind of a license are they using? I'll go look.
Avatar 4:51pm cosmickitty:

I finally made it!!!! Happy Billy Jam Friday
Avatar 4:52pm ALF of Hip Hop Slam:

So the mix next week will combine ALL the styles of ADA, Loop, and I in one big rigamarole. There will be a portion of the mix that will pay homage to an Indie label that paved the way for many artists back in the day. There will also be a section of the mix that will touch on current events. All three of us had fun contributing to this mix and I hope you all will enjoy it! :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:53pm chris:

i'm just a lowly listener, mate. not affiliated with FMU, beyond sending as much money their way as i can to keep shows like Billy Jam's PTNOTR on the air.
  4:54pm spodiodi:

Lots of slick marketing found, but no license information. Ah sorry, had you confused, chris.
Avatar 4:55pm ALF of Hip Hop Slam:

"It's 4:19!" LOL!
Avatar 4:59pm TheRapperWithNoName:

3 hours of Billy Jam is right.
  5:00pm spodiodi:

Billy Jam makes each and every Friday the start of a three-day weekend. Glorious.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:03pm steve:

spodiodi - Ken seems to respond to most reasonable email in a couple days... just ask him. publicly announcing the software license may not be the highest priority for a huge project that's still months away from launch and barely public to begin with. but if its something people want to know he'd probably appreciate the feedback, and also tell you...
Avatar 5:04pm ALF of Hip Hop Slam:

DAAAAAMNNNNN!! Look at Loop's playlist! :-)
