Kick Out the James!

Jan 29, 2021 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM

ZBC Rock

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.

Another regular ol' KOTJ.

Kick Out the James!

Well worth the wait
James (host) 9:25:51 AM
@ DJS and fans. Chloe was super nice to text with yesterday and still wants to do live KOTJ set when this mess is resolved...
Roger Jermyn 9:26:15 AM

James (host) 9:30:49 AM
@ DJS...that would be a rockin' back to the Z kick arse opener!!
James (host) 9:31:23 AM
But who knows the restrictions when we go back....
DJ Simon 9:31:59 AM
We will be required to wear Devo suits.
James (host) 9:32:15 AM
Anyone gotten the vaccine yet? My dentist did and the Hip Priest are the only one's I know.
DJ Simon 9:32:52 AM
Joanie at WMBR did.
James (host) 9:33:15 AM
She works at Harvard Public Health
DJ Simon 9:33:35 AM
I heard her mention it a few weeks back on her show.
DJ Simon 9:34:20 AM
This is a ramshackle tune.
James (host) 9:35:11 AM

James (host) 9:37:46 AM
See how I did that? Soylent Green is people, into Fried People...mmmmm, humans.....
-bot 9:38:21 AM
you're a pro @James

Love the trilly thing in the chorus
James (host) 9:44:12 AM
We are now in the covers portion of the show.
DJ Simon 9:45:02 AM
This Bo Diddley cover is great - I hope the rest of the collection is as good.
James (host) 9:45:34 AM
HA! I say the same in the back announce
James (host) 9:46:03 AM
There's a cover I think will be to the liking of DJS and Sandra La
James (host) 9:47:06 AM
Next one up DJS
DJ Simon 9:49:58 AM
Nice!
James (host) 9:50:00 AM
I f'd up the order of the last two songs...please forgive me.
DJ Simon 9:50:41 AM
I thought it was a cover of Peter Gunn at first.
Roger Jermyn 9:51:30 AM
my favorite B-52s tune
James (host) 9:57:46 AM

Hi Bradgic!
Verb Crunch 10:09:18 AM
I only saw the movie Soylent Green once in 1976 on a 13” black and white TV. But I remember it.
Jamie YBN 10:09:36 AM
Verb Crunch, it was awesome in the cinema
Jamie YBN 10:09:51 AM
Was a big fan of Heston as a kid, as an adult, not so much
James (host) 10:10:15 AM
When I was a kid I loved Soylent Green. Saw it seven times in theater...with my paper route money. and when saw as an adult on vcr...awful
James (host) 10:10:46 AM
The book from 1966, Soylent Green, was the first mention of "The Greenhouse Effect"
Verb Crunch 10:11:16 AM
I should find it and watch again. That’s a story ripe for a modern cinema remake
James (host) 10:12:34 AM
YES. Logan's Run too...but I heard it was redone terribly
Verb Crunch 10:15:26 AM
I figure when I fire up Soylent Green on a 4K flat screen the production will look dated.
James (host) 10:17:25 AM
It was Edward G. Robinson's last performance.
James (host) 10:17:38 AM
Book Soylent Green based on: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Make_Room!_Make_Room!

Smith tribute,so l’ll do so today.It was marvelous hearing the music along with the interview segments with Eleni Poulou.Stay safe & have a lovely weekend.
Pat Irwin (1) 10:23:32 AM
I work with elders so that gave me a leg up
James (host) 10:25:23 AM
@ Barry. Always kind. Shows a shining inner-spirit
Jamie YBN 10:30:01 AM
James, you are correct about the CononaTimeWarp, although it could be my advance age too. Cannot believe it's Friday already, but at least we have KOTJ.
James (host) 10:30:22 AM
At the least
James (host) 10:50:54 AM
Lots of 1977 in this set
James (host) 10:53:25 AM
Yes. Yes. Definitely YES!
DJ Simon 10:53:55 AM
Television isn't real??
DJ Simon 10:54:21 AM
I have to reassess everything now.
James (host) 10:54:33 AM
Only the carrier...if anything is real.
James (host) 10:58:58 AM
