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.

PiGuy 10:09:08 AM
Mornin' all. Hearing this show (last night, today, uh oh time warp) aside from the young voice, you can see James lay the foundation of song selection and approach.
DJ Simon 10:10:49 AM
Agreed.

Hi ZBC people, what fun today
Fred 10:58:07 AM
anyone know what Peter Choice did to get banned from other stations in the 80s?
Richard Weinfeld 10:59:24 AM
Gโ€™mornin Jamesians. I heard this show live and I have the t-shirt. James is drywalling and Iโ€™m painting.
Jamie Cohen (1) 11:00:00 AM
i dont know about other stations, he was suspended from zbc for a year for exposing himself to another dj during an argument.
DJ Simon 11:00:22 AM
@Richard - Don't get any paint on that classic t-shirt ; )
Fred 11:00:26 AM
Thanks Jamie
Jamie Cohen (1) 11:01:26 AM
still have a couple classic James tshirts here...
Fred 11:02:55 AM
Is there a picture of the t-shirt online?
DJ Simon 11:03:41 AM
The image on today's playlist is the t-shirt.
Fred 11:03:46 AM
duh, thanks
DJ Simon 11:04:47 AM
S'alright
Barry Hart 11:04:52 AM
Good morning,DJ Simon and KOTJ faithful,l have to say the very first show is quite different.When l first tuned in,l heard voices that sounded unfamiliar and wondered if the WZBC summer schedule had suddenly changed.
DJ Simon 11:05:40 AM
Ha โ€“ yes, Barry โ€“ bit of a different vibe, but classic KOTJ sounds.
Richard Weinfeld 11:08:25 AM
No desecration of the t-shirt. I need a pocket for cigs.
DJ Simon 11:15:44 AM
I'm heading over to BC for a free t-shirt.
Dash_Riprock 11:16:02 AM
Collectors item . Chicks dig the shirt .
Moles Knows 11:19:27 AM
What would James have played for the Classic set back in 1989?
DJ Simon 11:20:42 AM
That is a very good question.
DJ Simon 11:21:05 AM
Maybe some Beefheart.
Roger Jermyn 11:32:19 AM
Mark E Smith was still alive and kicking when this first aired
Roger Jermyn 11:39:59 AM
I was in the fall of my senior year in college when this aired
Barry Hart 11:51:30 AM
Glad a Fall song was played-Funny hearing the โ€œPerry Masonโ€theme.
-bot 11:54:53 AM
always the pro, mr james
-bot 11:56:30 AM
i guess Mudhoney was the hot band back then?
Roger Jermyn 11:57:03 AM

-bot 11:58:54 AM
one of the last shows I saw before lock-down
Dash_Riprock 11:59:09 AM
