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.

The Best of 2021 - The Runners-Up Show.

This week it's the best of KOTJ 2021 also rans. Artists played twice. Next week, the best-of-the-best! Artists played three times or more. Play along at home!

Kick Out the James!
