In league with Satan
Great cover
I memes that tune on the first note
I said to myself
Venom on the WoofMoo?!

Random customers tonight
These bars gotta open. Enough fear mongering already. And the average person don’t mind going to Walmart
Is there any hope?

Hey ignatatus! Seems like it's been a while. What's good: my weed guy's latest strain. What's bad: my ass, of course. You out driving tonight?

Heya Nulsh!

Some powerful lyrics.
Avatar 3:44am mb:

Was not mentally prepared to hear so much non-soundcloud rap tonight. Going pretty hard here Jim P.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:46am Jim the Poet:

That stopped because I was trying to cue a record using Tidal while KRS-One was playing on the PC. Sorry about that, KRS-One.
Avatar 3:47am Nulsh:

Ah, was just gonna ask Jim! I was thoroughly enjoying that!
A distant cousin of the Exploited's Cop Cars!

I'll bring it back. I cut off the start of the song too.

Same here Nulsh: was rocking out to that KRS!
Avatar 4:03am mb:

Please don't go back to the KRS. I'm trying to go to sleep and was going to type it out loud when the NWA came on. Now i'm typing for real.

Shout out to DJ Joe D.!

Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:05am Jim the Poet:

Oops, Sorry mb
Avatar 4:10am mb:

You should give yourself a (Jim the Poet miscue re-mix) to the first one the playlist. It would look tight in my Favorites list.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:11am Ignatatus666:

Any connections with Nada Surf and the band that sings Dramamine?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:13am Ignatatus666:

Great list last night Billy Jam
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:13am Bobby K:

Modest Mouse?

Avatar 4:14am Billy Jam:

ya know today, still Friday on the West Coast, was a good day as I did not need to use my AK
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:16am Ignatatus666:

Still Friday for us overnight workers. I totally forgot you went under the knife recently. Everything proper?
Avatar 4:16am mb:

Billy Jam on the West Coast. When do you start rocking the pimp cane?
Avatar 4:23am Billy Jam:

actually today was a good day as I only did not need to use my AK but got to leave house for first time in 8 weeks by myself to walk on cruthes but put weight on leg/foot and go to store - bad news is that 2 days ago when I went back to hospital found out that need further surgery - but not a huge deal - meanwhile couldnt be better time to be in my situation - with WFMU as my soundtrack - Great show tonite Jim the Poet

Glad to hear Billy, hang in there!
Avatar 4:29am Billy Jam:

tnx mariano and thank mb - I think it is all a state of mind to keep pushin' - and I feel like pushin' :)
Avatar 4:40am mb:

How about Jim the Poet's song wedged in between Betty Wright and Public Enemy in my Favorites. Thats something else.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:44am mariano:

Billy: I've had screws and a plate in my left ankle for 17 years, and it's like the injury and recovery time never happened. It will all be a distant memory before you know it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:51am Jim the Poet:

I'm old enough to remember when Jay-Z retired
Avatar 4:52am Billy Jam:

@jim am checking out - going to sleep now - thanks @mariano - that's refreshing to hear and have heard it from few others too - it's pretty amazing when u think about it all - metal in a body and it fixes it
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:53am Jim the Poet:

Hey Dave!
Avatar 5:00am mb:

Its _______ hearing Trump references from pre-2015 songs. Can't put my finger on the word but it holds more entertainment value. Most recently it was Rah Digga with "Get loot like that Trump bitch, Ivana" lol
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:06am mariano:

mb: "Nobody Speak" by DJ Shadow/Run the Jewels has the line "Flame your crew quicker than Trump fucks his youngest."
  5:06am morris from dd:

Great show, thanks for filling, Bill. I didn't get what happened to Joe D. but wish him well come back soon.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:10am Jim the Poet:

Joe's a little under the weather not in a worrisome way. Be back next week.
Avatar 5:14am mb:

Speaking of humble guys how about Tekashi 6ix9ine having 163,846,399 YouTube views in a week for his new video. Blows my mind.
Avatar 5:15am mb:

Super psyched for new Run the Jewels. Saw Josh Homme is on a track.
  5:17am ?:

@mb:So that's how he got the $200 grand he wanted to donate to charity?
  5:17am ami ad:

@Billy Jam:Keep strong.Take care.Hello all.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:21am Doug in JC:

Well, I certainly wasn't planning on getting up this early
Avatar 5:24am mb:

@?: The only thing i know about him is he was a snitch and "people" watched his vid many millions of times. I watched 3 times because its not a bad song and i found alot of entertainment value from the way he opens the video waving a middle finger and smiling for the camera with an iced out grill. I know nothing of his charity work.
Avatar 5:26am Nulsh:

A Rockabilly Bastid!
  5:29am ami ad:

@mb:I'm with you,not my cup of tea,never watched anything by him.Guess he doesn't have a mask on if you can see his shiny grillz.Did see he tried to make a donation recently that the charity Did not accept.
