For some reason I've been listening to Italian hiphop. (not Itlalian, just a bland agnostic wasp cracker)

Avatar 7:09pm Billy Jam:

hello to celeste in Albany + mariano + annette + NGH - thanks for tuning in today guys - appreciated - As I recover from my surgery on Monday been watching lots of movies inc. a great documentary that’s streaming free on YouTube entitled “Just Eat It: A Food Waste Story” which was really mind-opening on the amount of wasted food in this country - check it out at this link = youtu.be...

Hello DJ Billy Jam and all.. Hope the surgery went smoothly..

I now say we make wfmu an adjective, as, " I'm WFMU AF!"
Avatar 7:13pm Billy Jam:

hello radioronan in Brooklyn good to have you tune in and join in the comments + shout out to Be Now Homeboy — coincidentally got Homeboy Sandman cued up next with great song off his new album that anyone who has a close friend or significant other that tends to run late timewise will relate to wholeheartedly - listen closely to the lyrics - they made me crack up first time hearing them

Billy Jam keeping me up to date. Homeboy Sandman should be a house hold rap name. For real! I can't wait to dig into his new record. Ty mr DJ !!!
Avatar 7:19pm Billy Jam:

@hypothete - that's about right
  Swag For Life Member 7:20pm Mennlinn Rebarts:

That last track gave me feelings I cannot express in a public message board.
Avatar 7:21pm northguineahills:

damn this Jasari X!

The last time I was in Mexico, it was 11 pesos to the dollar, now it]s 20-1 (I would have made a killing crate digging w/ that exchange rate).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:22pm chresti:

Thanks for the link, Billy J, looks good.
Avatar 7:23pm Billy Jam:

@NGH and Mennlinn Rebarts re last song - think the artist wanted to call it Kill Jeff Bezos but toned it down -albeit putting guns in place of the letters "FF" in "JEFF" in the cover art
Avatar 7:25pm northguineahills:

@Billy Jam: I dig the sentiment.... (GOP relatives sent me an Amazon wish list, uh, I'm living in a car)
Avatar 7:25pm Billy Jam:

@Be Now Homeboy - like u said about Homeboy Sandman - these three artists (Ragz, Unown and Product 90) should also be household names since they are so endlessly talented as this new album of theirs proves and I am going to play in its entirity
Avatar 7:27pm northguineahills:

(but I'm a hardcore pacifist, not that I*looks to the left* would condone such behavior)
Avatar 7:30pm Billy Jam:

@NGH dude that's terrible that you are still enduring such hardships in your life - so is your wife living in the car too? - And what prospects lie ahead to get out this scenario for you?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:32pm Be Now Homeboy:

Billy Jam - I literally set a timer to your show. I dont always come on here but you have turned me onto the best hiphop in the world. Mad love and appreciation.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:33pm Berd:

The SCOTUS refusal to hear a certain case tonight, gives me a certain schadenfreude satisfaction w/ my blood relatives.....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:41pm Be Now Homeboy:

This record is so amazing. I'm trying to find it online.
Avatar 7:44pm northguineahills:

meanwhile, although I'm left of the DNC, I saw they have jobs available, so I inquired how my skill set would fit in (technically non-party affiliated, but always vote, spent $60 in gas just to vote Nov 3).
  7:44pm StRts:

awesome tracks..
Avatar 7:44pm Billy Jam:

@Be Now Homeboy - dont think U will find it as it is not out yet - this is the premiere - but Product 90 and Ragz will be posting it to Bandcamp or maybe Soundcloud in near future - Glad u and CHRIS and chresti and all are enjoying it- me too - just love it and fact that these three artists do all for love and make little or no money proves their committment to their art form - one that they are true masters of!!! Tnx to DJ ALF for making initial intro to Ragz and Unown
Avatar 7:45pm northguineahills:

Product 90, DJ Ragz & Unown sound like they are into Steinski.....(another WFMU fave)

It is one of the Vessel structure over on the west side of Manhattan in Hudson Yards area that I took back in March of 2019 right when it was opening -its pretty amazing ---- reminds me of brain salad surgery cover or MC Escher
