With James

In these confused times isn't it nice to find some relief? Every week, James will try to bring some sense into this crazy world via the radio waves. Look back. Look forward. Seek the truth. Never dull. Always irreverent. Fight the good fight by just sitting back and listening.

-bot 9:08:46 AM
I need some help. I've tried my best google-fu and can't come up with the name of the compilation of Scottish post-punk bands, like JosefK, APB, Orange Juice, etc..
James (host) 9:09:12 AM
@ Bot Hmmmm. I've played it?
DJ Simon 9:09:45 AM
@Bot – Big Gold Dreams?
tom siegfried 9:10:24 AM
A glorious morning....
-bot 9:10:25 AM
I believe so James. I think early in your pandemic shows. I tried looking at a couple of playlists, but that's a little difficult
James (host) 9:10:43 AM
Yes....Big Gold Dreams

@Tom...It is. Sugar coated green mountains. I've been told to vacate. This time for real. I am done here. Bliss sucker fish needs to find a new host.
DJ Simon 9:11:15 AM
Ding Ding Ding!
-bot 9:11:55 AM
I guess that's why I never win "what's the connection" my recall is fading
JeffB 9:17:50 AM
that's a great compilation. Even if Scottish band "Frightened Rabbit" isn't on it.
JeffB 9:18:16 AM
@bot - regarding recall.. um.. never mind. I forgot
James (host) 9:19:10 AM

Fred White 10:32:12 AM
The beginning of this Wipers song sounds a lot like Doom Town
Fred White 10:33:23 AM
But I guess that's like saying one Ramones song sounds like another
PiGuy 10:35:41 AM
Any Wipers song is a good thing...
James (host) 10:36:43 AM
Yeah...many Wipers songs sound alike...not a bad thing
PiGuy 10:36:42 AM
Do people call it a 'Signature sound'?
James (host) 10:37:23 AM
I think I played this Moderates song a month or two ago....
James (host) 10:37:59 AM
@Pi, I'll go with that. So many bands when ya see only have a repetoire of six chords....
Fred White 10:38:02 AM
When people think they hate a genre of music they often say 'it all sounds alike,' but that's just ignorance showing. Except in the case of contemporary country music which of course sucks
James (host) 10:40:37 AM
@Fred....agreed.
James (host) 10:40:57 AM
l like language....all think the other's all sounds alike

Awesomely nostalgic set by the way.
Saginaw 11:05:37 AM
Oldies Show is outstanding
Bradgic 11:05:59 AM
I thought my mixer channel crapped out when that show came on. I spent a few minutes trouble shooting my gear.
JeffB 11:06:15 AM
truth ! "Quarentunes" Mon 11am doesn't print
JeffB 11:07:19 AM
@Uncle Ash > MIA - i was at and remember the Wolfgang Press show at the Channel..
Allison Dick 11:06:47 AM
wow 32 years!
Saginaw 11:07:44 AM
It's not the only show with no volume. I think they were trained by Peter Choyce ;)
JeffB 11:08:18 AM
< 40+ years > Victor longer..
JeffB 11:08:55 AM
DJ Simon has the loudest show. I'm trying to figure out how he gets it so loud. Limiting or something..
Armando Castro 11:09:21 AM
HELLOOOOOOOOOOO JAMES!!!...this is Armando...HOLY COW....and I've been listening to the 'Z since summer of 1987...I even did a hour show with you for $90.30...I was a baby then and now I'm a grandfather...life is a mystery.
Bradgic 11:10:28 AM
JeffB - He uses secret soviet vacuum tubes filled with secret sauce.
Armando Castro 11:09:55 AM
Sorry for the typographical error.
Armando Castro 11:11:06 AM
Lon live Peter Choyce...long live James...long live the 'Z.
Bradgic 11:12:13 AM
Peter C kept calling in to Joanie's show on MBR yesterday.
Armando Castro 11:12:38 AM
Once there was a little advertisement for the 'Z that stated the following:
Armando Castro 11:13:56 AM
..."You're listening to WZBC, the station with titanium testicles and a suspended steel scrotum." The funniest advertisement ever.
DJ Simon 11:16:58 AM
@JeffB – I run the show through Audition's hard limiter and set it to -3dB. (Good guess on Bradgic's part though.)
James (host) 11:16:58 AM
That great bumper was trashed. Can't be found
James (host) 11:17:20 AM
Oh really. So Peter is still alive. Good to hear.
Allison Dick 11:18:38 AM
This past week Eleni Poulou (formally of the Fall and Mark E Smith's ex-wife (!)) started following and messaging me on Instagram! I told her about the Fall Tribute :)
Pat Irwin (1) 11:18:49 AM
Classic hits!
James (host) 11:19:10 AM
Helllo I'm doing laundry and packing and loading the truck to get out of here by 12 noon. It's Cray-Cray town here. Grant me the serenity.
Bradgic 11:19:49 AM
Armando, that was a good one!
Allison Dick 11:20:04 AM
serenity now!
Pat Irwin (1) 11:22:02 AM
Cray-cray?!
Theodore D. Wicks 11:22:45 AM
tubes - one of the best songs and one of the most entertaining concerts I ever saw (music hall, late 70's) as KOTJ great show
Armando Castro 11:23:57 AM
Thanks Bradgic. James, serenity can be found by listening to The Fall.
Armando Castro 11:26:09 AM
I find serenity on Friday mornings by listening to "Kick Out the James". I need it badly because I teach Spanish to spoiled, entitled, enabled, 21st. Century teenagers.
Armando Castro 11:28:02 AM
...but today I am getting my revenge...they are all taking quizzes and tests...hahahahaha.
Allison Dick 11:27:58 AM
nice one
James (host) 11:28:45 AM
@ Armando- Welcome as always and nice to here. Once on the road listening to my Kick Out The Oldies from Sunday....I'll be on the road to happy destiny
Bob H 11:28:15 AM
James, i listen mostly thru tunein, and if nobody has mentioned it, the volume in general has been really low at least the last few days when i’ve been listenng. my google speaker is at 70% (80 yesterday) and it’s usually fine at 30%. just an fyi... And thanks for White Punks on Dope. Seems like a good set for Land of the Glass Pinecones :) Have a nice holiday!
James (host) 11:29:15 AM
@ Allison That's so great. Kind gesture 🙏🏻❤️
JeffB 11:31:09 AM
i'm not gonna be able chat anymore today so .. great show KOTJ !! @Simon - yeah that makes sense.. so do Soviet vacuum tubes !
James (host) 11:32:23 AM
@ TDW Great to hear and have here
-bot 11:38:14 AM
The Fall is on my Spotify Release Radar! song titled, "Paradis Perdu"
Bob H 11:45:16 AM
Armando, thanks for the serenity comment. sent it to a couple teachers.
James (host) 11:49:00 AM
Folks. So grateful for those that put up with a guy like me and take the time and choose to partake in my insanity for serenity and sanity. SCROLL DOWN for pandemicast and KOTJ live streaming info! Humbled and hitting the road in two mins.
Armando Castro 11:50:40 AM
Anytime Bob H, anytime.
Armando Castro 11:51:06 AM
James, you're the best. Thanks a bunch!
