Right when I got in James from shoveling . Great way to start the day !
Dash_Riprock 10:06:19 AM
If I only hit the Powerball though .
Jorge Armando Castro 10:06:28 AM
Helloooo Everybody...Armando here...what can be better than leisurely watching a gentle snowfall while drinking coffee? The only answer is...the above accompanied by another fine KOTJ show!!! Rock on James!!!
Jorge Armando Castro 10:07:20 AM
I'm shoveling when the show is over...I am now a truly lazy retired person.
James (host) 10:09:03 AM
@ Armando! I will be shoveling after the show, as well. Great to have here/hear
James (host) 10:10:32 AM
@Dash...nearly all lottery winners have messed up lives after the jackpot. No friends, addiction, go broke. A friend of a friend wrote a book about it. Interviewed over 200 winnners. 90% regretted winning
Jorge Armando Castro 10:14:52 AM
RE Lottery Winners: I would spend my money buying the 'Z and creating the greatest rock station evah!!!...for one, James would the host on a daily basis for eight hours a day and he would hire the other DJs after a rigorous interview.
James (host) 10:15:05 AM
@ Armando...same.
Jorge Armando Castro 10:15:42 AM
Dash_Riprock 10:16:20 AM
Thatโ€™s them James , not me . Would invest wisely and not piss through my ๐Ÿ’ฐ. Firstly I would move somewhere warm .
James (host) 10:17:27 AM
What was discovered in this authors research...all had good intentions but friends and family relations became a mess. The road to hell is paved with good intentions.
James (host) 10:17:56 AM
HG got to see the live Killer Kin experience. Sadly, I was working in VT in July
James (host) 10:19:20 AM
No no no yeah yeah yeah yeah
James (host) 10:20:18 AM
By Voices and Angels.
Jorge Armando Castro 10:29:15 AM
The moral of the story is to never mix money and family...I learnt this by reading about Pelรฉ, the great Brazilian soccer star.
Verb Crunch 10:34:38 AM
Hyman is a common Jewish name though
James (host) 10:35:35 AM
Perhaps where the term was derived?

Morning all. I keep forgetting when it's Friday because I'm unemployed and it's all blurring together. Glad I remembered it was KOTJ day
James (host) 10:56:37 AM
@ Allison. Makin' some noise but not a racket. That's DJ Simon's territory. More on that in next break
James (host) 10:57:06 AM
