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.

I'll vouch for that flick – it's fun, uplifting, inspiring.
James (host) 9:29:06 AM
Just heard from Tom of Cool Greenhouse. Confirmed for Monday interview. Stay tuned.
Pat Irwin (1) 9:34:07 AM
Whoa! When? I hope I can get it :/
James (host) 9:35:16 AM
Probably on next Friday KOTJ and then on KOTJ archive.
Allison Dick 9:38:41 AM
Nice James...have you done many interviews on your show before this year?
Allison Dick 9:39:08 AM
And Beauty is Embarrassing is the best!!
James (host) 9:39:49 AM
Tons. I know my skills don't represent but interviews seemed to be a thing of the past. Maybe the pandemic has helped that.
James (host) 9:40:41 AM
For the last few years I contact and nobody gets back but all-of-the-sudden.
Allison Dick 9:41:16 AM
I would think so. Marc Maron has had so many weirdly huge movie starts on his podcast (WTF) in the last year.
Allison Dick 9:41:37 AM
folks want to connect
James (host) 9:41:38 AM
Always Marc Maron.
Allison Dick 9:42:25 AM
U F with WTF James?
James (host) 9:42:46 AM
If I changed the name of this show, not, "Toiling in Obscurity"
James (host) 9:43:38 AM
We are an intimate community of amiable lunatics devoid of commercialization and big media.
Allison Dick 9:44:15 AM
Hell yeah!!
Pat Irwin (1) 9:45:54 AM
Amen to that, lol!
James (host) 9:50:26 AM
The Saturday Home Pandemicast will now be known as "Toiling in Obscurity"
James (host) 9:52:04 AM
That truly is toiling in obscurity. Maybe a dozen or two listeners?

*"Burnishing" Letraset
DJ Simon 10:16:09 AM
I'll have to add Nice Surprise to my list of song names that are also the band name.
Uncle Ash 10:17:02 AM
Uncle Ash 10:17:45 AM
"This fine tip burnisher is extra small and has two usable sides, with a "bone" end for burnishing letters and creating crisp creases or folds and durable metal tip for detail work. Burnishing pressure is adjustable by turning the bone end. Especially designed for applying dry transfers. Works well for embossing and with tapes."
James (host) 10:18:28 AM
The Bone End = band name.
Uncle Ash 10:18:44 AM

Jamie YBN 10:19:55 AM
Appreciate the glottal on "Bruno ist dagegen" translates to "Bruno is against it." Glad I can still use my Middlebury German degree!

I'd rather be burnished than banished.
Uncle Ash 10:22:16 AM
*used to get Letraset at Johnson Paint upstairs @ 355 Newbury St.

I wonder, if I had chosen to go to Tufts instead of Middlebury, how many of the shows you mention I may have gone to 1978-1982 (my college years). I got to see some shows in Burlington and during summers in Boston/Cape
