Kick Out the James!

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.

Kick Out the James!

Hello Pi .
PiGuy 9:24:08 AM
Didn't get to the chat in time to give Matt his propers. There have been some very good fits in the pre-James slot and unfortunately, last week's show was not one of them.

PiGuy 9:32:57 AM
Oddly enough, woke up and the band Bardo Pond was in my head. Very surprised to hear Matt (or anyone) play them 2 hours later.
Dash Riprock🇮🇪 9:35:48 AM
Well James it was top drawer stuff from both bands . Ride “ brought it “ , loud ! Jolly good .
Dash Riprock🇮🇪 9:37:56 AM
Big Night Live , now have to get my shadow to MGM Fenway .
raoulvanhorn 9:39:53 AM
having spent a couple hours splitting wood yesterday in advance of the deepfreeze, I woke up thinking of the song “Just Like Fire Would”
PiGuy 9:40:07 AM
@Dash. Last time I saw Ride, last tour I believe, they were so friggin' loud. I have good earplugs but they hardly stood a chance against the sonic assault that is Ride. But, hey, they were great.
Dash Riprock🇮🇪 9:44:14 AM
They were great , teeth rattling loud .
DJ Simon 9:45:14 AM
I'd say yes, that does qualify.
Dash Riprock🇮🇪 9:47:59 AM
James with the Fenway Park etiquette , pissing in the sink . Savagery .
Pete 9:48:07 AM
another fine monologue sir. great music.
Pete 9:48:44 AM
Dash Riprock🇮🇪 9:51:59 AM

James (host) 10:34:25 AM
Mat was happy to have such a great response to his show this morning. Especially when I told him they were from some loooong time listeners.

ex-DJ tamer 10:48:07 AM
Pi Guy, did you accidentally leave your radio on overnight? I noticed that the bot played some Bardo Pond at 4:48 AM. It may have seeped into your dre

"This ZBC transmission has now entered your mind"
Bradgic 10:49:32 AM
Interesting choice for today DJ James! Is it to warm us up? Good morning all!
DJ Simon 10:50:25 AM
Ha - I was just thinking the same thing.
James (host) 10:50:39 AM
As always...I have no clue what i'm doing or what's going on. Even when planned out.
Bradgic 10:51:08 AM
Just naturally gifted.
James (host) 10:51:41 AM

Barely feels -13*
PiGuy 11:03:41 AM
@ex-DJ Tamer, what's a radio? Strictly apps for listening to music, sad to say.If my brain can tune into the bot overnight, it has not shared that with me.
raoulvanhorn 11:06:44 AM
is this song quoting Siouxsee?
Kris Thompson 11:14:38 AM
Morning all. Loved hearing Happy The Clown and 2nd Layer back-to-back, for some reason
Kris Thompson 11:16:25 AM
I was also floored by the awesomeness of Matthew's show. Was this his first-ever show?
James (host) 11:17:17 AM
Hey Kris! Great to hear and hear/here from. Was ginna chat ...anyone remember Happy the Clown but juggling chainsaws here.
James (host) 11:17:32 AM
Matt's First show EVER
j. johnson 11:22:26 AM
Dang - sorry to have missed Matt's show!
Kris Thompson 11:22:33 AM
I personally helped Happy TC get all their old releases up on Bandcamp and streaming services. It was a gap that needed to be filled!
j. johnson 11:23:12 AM
"...juggling chainsaws..." familiar feeling
PiGuy 11:24:03 AM

Thank you!!
ex-DJ tamer 11:54:45 AM
Parting thought: When the weather is really bad on trash day, I withhold my trash & repsychling for a week, to reduce the work of the DPW workers out there. Anyone else do this?
James (host) 11:54:56 AM
Folks! Once again blessed and humbled that all that CHOOSE to come here/hear to be with a ludicrous psycho like me and the tunes I ferret out to bring to warm and open ears!!!

James (host) 12:01:31 PM

Roger Jermyn 12:02:56 PM
Reality bites I guess.
James (host) 12:03:01 PM
Caffeine like nicotine is a vessel constrictor which actually make one colder in the long run. Alcohol, too. But then you're just oblivious
