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.

James, thanks for the shoutout on last week's "Toiling..."
-bot 9:32:23 AM
thx @bradgic
Bradgic 9:32:35 AM
two sets, not two shows
Heather Grunwald 9:32:54 AM
no opener!
Bradgic 9:33:10 AM
Dash Riprock 9:33:16 AM
Sure !
Bradgic 9:33:26 AM
James, I might know a person to take that ticket.
Dash Riprock 9:33:27 AM
Stefan Cooke 9:33:38 AM
Rich G. said they wanted to give the crowd a break and go outside, hence the two sets.

I applied for a job and got it but the company sucked and found out the pay was shit so I declined.

Morning to all.

James (host) 9:47:13 AM
I think they did or tried a time ago and nothing happened.
James (host) 9:47:34 AM
@ Pi....I do and don't miss our Thursday night stream get togethers.
James (host) 9:50:12 AM
@ Prof Ire...pardon missing prior. Hope the new semester is a smashing not crashing success
Peter Ireland 9:53:41 AM
so far so good!

@Prof Ire...good to hear. Honeymoon phase....
PiGuy 10:01:12 AM
@James, I know what you mean. Something missing, something gained. Day off from work today so I will mostly be out of chat, listening on the go.

Peter makes a great comment about Chumbawumba on the latest upload.
Roadsider 10:11:30 AM
They have one big hit and they are completely abandoned by college radio, which then ignores their amazing WYSIWIG album.

Because tonight we all go out together! This is our theme and since an earworm...it will stick with us.

Reading the Uber Reddit page . Insightful .
ex-DJ tamer 10:26:47 AM
Sad that I have miss concert tonight...
James (host) 10:27:43 AM
We all long for simpler times. Uber provides it...no worker rights, lower pay, stock holder wealth, exploitation of the needy and uneducated. A beloved tragedy of convenience
James (host) 10:29:30 AM
But hey don't live like me. only be an "amazing" solo embarrassment and liability.
Mark Lambert 10:32:22 AM
Hearing Zulus, HSR and Big Dipper make me realize how much I miss the Mass Ave and Beyond when Chris was doing it.
James (host) 10:32:35 AM
I hear ya!!
James (host) 10:32:56 AM
It's gonna be a real post-vid reunion tonight!
James (host) 10:39:18 AM
Who did Obnox open for that night at Once? DJ Simon and Sandra-La were there, too....
James (host) 10:39:28 AM
Was it Pere Ubu?
James (host) 10:40:57 AM
Yes. Hasslefest 2017
Richard Weinfeld 10:41:59 AM
I wish I was still in Boston to see the Zulus. It’s doubtful they will be coming to Louisville.
James (host) 10:43:15 AM
@ Richard...not likely since Rich lives in Maine now and not Nashville. But I have friends that are hired to video tonight's show. May be available
Roadsider 10:45:43 AM
Sadly, Tubthumper became something of an albatross for the band. WYSIWYG was subsequently ignored not only by college radio but by commercial as well. Then the band went all folk-like and was never heard from again.
Heather Grunwald 10:46:32 AM
Hasslefest 2017! Sunburned Hand & Ak'chamel were something else...
Roadsider 10:46:34 AM
I just remember being surprised when I even saw WYSIWYG in the store. Took me completely by surprise.
James (host) 10:46:37 AM
Happens to the best of thm
James (host) 10:47:00 AM
@ HG I do recall the Sunburned Hand, too...
Richard Weinfeld 10:47:12 AM
Might be a better option for me. My tolerance for crowds is quite diminished. I did venture out to see Swans and Pere Ubu when they played a couple of years ago.
James (host) 10:48:04 AM
@ Richard....I hear ya'. Sign of advance placement on Earth.
Roadsider 10:48:24 AM
BTW, I also wanted to thank you for playing a song by the Elevators on TIO. I saw them at a New Year's Eve show in Northampton in 1981. They were a great band live.
James (host) 10:49:23 AM
I try. Blind chicken and all. Appreciation always appreciated. The few that get it/me.
Verb Crunch 10:52:04 AM
@Roadsider I remember the Elevators (i'm from Northampton, was on WMUA back then)
Verb Crunch 10:53:29 AM
Sadly their singer, John Clark, was killed crossing a street in Boston..
James (host) 10:54:27 AM
Oh my!
-bot 10:54:59 AM
@Verb, you're from NoHo? I did time there in the '80s
Roadsider 10:56:38 AM
Yikes! I didn't know that!
Roadsider 10:56:59 AM
I can't seem to find their album in any digital format. Does it exist?
Roadsider 10:57:10 AM
I still have a cassette recording of the vinyl.
Bruce Pierce 11:00:13 AM
a late good morning all!
Dash Riprock 11:01:08 AM
Bruce . Hello
Verb Crunch 11:09:54 AM

I'd bring your original vax card just in case. They seem to want to see it from what I gather.
Stefan Cooke 11:14:12 AM
Verb Crunch 11:14:15 AM
wow this got dark really quick !
Verb Crunch 11:15:35 AM
i might try to get into the BeachComber tonight. Deer Tick. They say Vax card required. Don't have it with me
James (host) 11:16:21 AM
We both will be sent away
Fred 11:17:55 AM
maybe bring the destroyed card even if illegible?
James (host) 11:18:40 AM
That card turned to shredded dust.
barcoded ||| |||||| || |||| | ||| || |||||| 11:18:41 AM
JK, with your graphic design skills, I don't see why you can't whip up a forged version of your vaccination card. Print it on cardstock. You know the door person will not examine every card, looking for fakes.
James (host) 11:19:14 AM
I will look forward to being sent home. If I don't that will be a bonus.
Fred 11:19:42 AM
maybe print out the thing you plan to show them on your phone?
James (host) 11:19:44 AM
I bring joy to others.
James (host) 11:19:56 AM
Yes. I'm gonna print it.

I'll get a bike ride and dinner out.
barcoded ||| |||||| || |||| | ||| || |||||| 11:23:22 AM
Ask someone to send you hi res images of the front & back of their card. Digitally modify it to clear the handwritten part. Print it and fill in the true info in ink.
James (host) 11:24:38 AM
Not worth the effort. I will print out my thing from Tufts and let the universe do it's thing.
James (host) 11:25:15 AM
I do appreciate the compliment of my skeels and suggestion
barcoded ||| |||||| || |||| | ||| || |||||| 11:26:20 AM

James (host) 11:29:50 AM
As pointed out by many, "Why didn't you take a picture of the card, like me." Then show me the picture or text to me. Then others have told me they threw theirs away on the way out from second shot.
-bot 11:32:20 AM
Has anyone here actually been to the Paradise since they enacted the proof criteria. How thorough are they?
James (host) 11:33:34 AM
As I said earlier, I was told The Paradise won't request vac proof unitl Oct. Depends on what power trip the door guy is on.
James (host) 11:34:09 AM
I am just trying to illustrate the effect of negativity.
Fred 11:34:10 AM
I finally took picture and made copy thanks to this discussion! I have no clue about legality of forging a legitimate card but I have heard that forging a card is a felony
Bradgic 11:34:29 AM
Zulus stipulated that they must show Vax proof, not Paradise.
Bradgic 11:35:24 AM
You'll be good James!
James (host) 11:35:28 AM
OK well enjoy the show folks.
Stefan Cooke 11:35:50 AM

I would hope that the forgery felony charge wouldn't hold up in court if you were forging legitimate data onto it. Forgeries by the unvaccinated folks are more likely to incur the wrath of the gov't.
