Avatar 4:38pm Billy Jam:

moved by recent passing of Bowie, Lemmy, and Lulubelle - all from cancer - decided to do show dedicated to the eternal finally fight to find cure for cancer…….Note some (not all) of the music today is by artists affected by cancer - victims or sympathizers. As well as such cancer victims Camu Tao (RIP), and Boosie Badazz and sympathizers as El-P and Bird - will play music by other artists such as Mac Mill, Mac Dre, Mac Mall (Triple Mac Set) + Lushlife and Tone Tank - and J-Dilla (who died of cardiac arrest following battle with (non-cancer) Lupus………If you wish to give shout out to someone you know whose life was affected by cancer or anything on the topic - please post here in comments - THANK YOU!

My very good friend passed away this past November from cancer. I think about him every day. We spun a lot of records out over the years, he was always kind enough to say 'yes' when I asked if I could guest with him on his soul 45 dj nights. I miss you, Dave.

Hey Billy Jam....unable to listen in but will catch the archive. My dad has been going through treatment for a rare type of skin cancers the past year. He seems to be coping pretty well with it all.

In February, 1997, we watched my dad take his last breaths as he died from lung cancer. No joy. Because of that, I'm not too fond of smoking, either.
