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!

James (host) 9:08:49 AM
Howdy good Z and KOTJ peoples! Let's do this. Brighten the cloudy day with some shining rock tunes
Bradgic 9:09:10 AM
Good morning James and all KOTJers!
Frank Trippi 9:09:15 AM
Thanks for playing Civic. They are the best!
Matthew McDonald 9:09:15 AM
Howdy partners
James (host) 9:09:51 AM
Bradgic! DJ W/oCool Name!
James (host) 9:10:09 AM
@ Frank always solid releases from Civic!
Crank 9:11:58 AM
Ah the temple of James, where we partake in the kicking-out ritual
Crank 9:12:07 AM
And the music is our god
James (host) 9:12:44 AM
Where we get incensed over incense
Dash Riprock🇮🇪 9:13:28 AM
Morning folks . Thanks Matt
Crank 9:16:50 AM
Ha! Speaking of incense (and being incensed) have you ever smudged something James?
James (host) 9:17:29 AM
I smudged my apartment with listener Fred grown sage back in December.
bruckner4 9:18:44 AM
hello everybody!
Crank 9:18:50 AM
Being a fairly agnostic fellow I’m thinking mostly it would just create dust and upset my allergies
James (host) 9:18:58 AM
It's now after b4
Crank 9:19:47 AM
That would be Bruckner’s 5th?
James (host) 9:20:00 AM
Not sure it did anything but smelled nice. Things still falling apart but I don't think smudging affects entropy....which happens
Crank 9:20:26 AM
Smelling nice would be a marked improvement
DJ Simon 9:21:05 AM
Mornin' - back from walkin' Lulu, had Matt and James in my airbuds.
DJ Simon 9:22:12 AM
(I normally don't listen to music on dog walks, but I make an exception for KOTJ.)'
James (host) 9:22:54 AM
Awwwwr. This was on my list and was played on Infernal Racket Monday.
PiGuy 9:24:29 AM
Morning KOTJ and all the other kickers.

Roger Jermyn 9:40:23 AM
I'm not silver yet
Uncle Ash 9:43:28 AM
Dash Riprock🇮🇪 9:44:31 AM
Where is the Sun 🌞?
Roger Jermyn 9:46:33 AM
I had the same thing happen. Turned out it was an ignored cavity and the molar exploded. it was exactly like chewing glass.
Roger Jermyn 9:47:33 AM
Exploding Molars would be a good hardcore band name
Dash Riprock🇮🇪 9:48:36 AM
Always sunny 😎 in JP. Good luck on the interview
Elnor Vashti 9:49:04 AM
hey James, we don't want Lulu exploding! no exploding canines.
Barry Hart 9:49:37 AM
Good morning,James and fellow Kickers, hope you’re all doing well.
Bradgic 9:50:47 AM
Definitely not Carlisle PA.
DJ Simon 9:51:01 AM
Your interview isn't at Ennet House is it?

Lots of A and G power chords in these last few tunes
James (host) 10:12:37 AM
Good to know.
James (host) 10:13:46 AM
Not that I could play it....
Roger Jermyn 10:14:30 AM
you have to believe
James (host) 10:15:16 AM
I've believed but then one must come to acceptance.
Roger Jermyn 10:16:34 AM
the seven steps of guitar grief?
James (host) 10:17:20 AM
Some have talent, ear and a knack. Some just don't.
James (host) 10:18:19 AM
I keep at it b/c I have all the time in the world and it doesn't cost a thing...but realization.
Roger Jermyn 10:20:39 AM
The guitar can be a blessing and a curse.
Roger Jermyn 10:21:10 AM
What did Roger get Mississippi

Bradgic 10:41:25 AM
I am so digging this set James!
James (host) 10:41:58 AM
Oh sweet Bradgic.
raoulvanhorn 10:42:05 AM
Infotainment is a fine, fine album
James (host) 10:42:19 AM
Pardon my oversitght. BARRY! Sag'naw!
Bradgic 10:43:32 AM
Except I was playing along on the guitar and now I can't find my pick.
James (host) 10:44:05 AM
bruckner4 10:44:05 AM
nice! sometimes i feel like a paranoia man...
James (host) 10:47:39 AM
well b4...funny mentioning that...and fall folks would get a hint from Panther Burns...too.
Roger Jermyn 10:48:20 AM
I am doing the same Bradgic. If I could I would send you a pick
Roger Jermyn 10:49:34 AM
I hear Iggy Pop in this one for some reason
James (host) 10:51:23 AM
From the 7", friends!
Roger Jermyn 10:52:51 AM
great tune
-bot 10:57:03 AM
good monrin', sorry to be tardy.
James (host) 10:57:29 AM
KOTJ means never having to say you're sorry
Roger Jermyn 10:58:14 AM
great guitar sounds on Carl
James (host) 10:58:48 AM
So true.
Bradgic 11:01:06 AM
yeah, that one was fun Roger.
Dash Riprock🇮🇪 11:09:09 AM
Ugh rain at Jamaica Pond , time to wrap up the fishing gear .
Roger Jermyn 11:14:22 AM
Roger Jermyn 11:14:44 AM
been learning the bassline to this one
Roger Jermyn 11:14:55 AM
fun stuff
Bradgic 11:15:39 AM
James (host) 11:16:00 AM
From one before I thought of this or Hocus Pocus by Focus
-bot 11:16:42 AM
I saw "deep Purple" and I thought, what new band is that? oh wait
DJ Simon 11:17:15 AM
It's been a while since I indulged in some Deep Purple. Brings me back.
James (host) 11:17:50 AM
Dad had this one on 8-track for the Nova
DJ Simon 11:19:31 AM
8-track is the way Deep Purple was meant to be heard.
Roger Jermyn 11:20:21 AM
That is how I first heard them Simon
Roger Jermyn 11:20:48 AM
"Hush" on my parents Superstars of the Seventies 8-Track
Roger Jermyn 11:21:20 AM
When I was 6
bruckner4 11:21:34 AM
Roger Jermyn 11:22:45 AM
Saw bob with Dino Jr last November. He wasn't really into opening for them
raoulvanhorn 11:22:49 AM
The guy can write a chord progression!
Roger Jermyn 11:23:08 AM
The show last March was much more inspired
DJ Simon 11:23:30 AM
@Roger - I messed up my sister's 8-track of Boston's first album, so I opened the cartridge to fix it and couldn't believe how the contraption worked. Based on old radio carts I guess.
James (host) 11:23:38 AM
I'm sure he enjoyed cashing the check
Verb Crunch 11:25:14 AM
This individual fruit pie song you could match together with “love is all around” by the Troggs
Verb Crunch 11:25:22 AM
Roger Jermyn 11:25:56 AM
@Simon that reminds me of one of my worst childhood memories. I was ten the year Elvis died and that Xmas my aunt gave me an 8-track of one of his albums for Xmas. I never got to hear it because shortly after opening it my year old sister had pulled the tape out of it completely.
James (host) 11:26:08 AM
Well let's see how my choice plays out Verb
Roger Jermyn 11:26:32 AM
well maybe not one of the worst but it was traumatic nonetheless
John Fisher 11:29:28 AM
A one year old joyfully pulling the tape out of an 8-track makes me think of all the vids of cats completely unraveling a toilet paper roll from the wall
bruckner4 11:30:49 AM
James (host) 11:30:58 AM
bruckner4 11:31:17 AM
very nice.
James (host) 11:31:35 AM
Z gold up next!
Roger Jermyn 11:33:28 AM
@John yes exactly
bruckner4 11:34:09 AM
a z killer!
DJ Simon 11:35:27 AM
@Roger – Good story, understandably traumatic!
Matthew McDonald 11:36:59 AM
The stranglers covering Burt Bacharach equals awesome
Pete 11:38:07 AM
Pete 11:38:37 AM
Flying Nun Records...
Roger Jermyn 11:39:38 AM
That check bought a lot of "refreshments" for him I bet
Pete 11:39:41 AM
wow. 35 years at ZBC
-bot 11:44:06 AM
your German is impeccable.
j. johnson 11:47:26 AM
Turn it down! I have children sleeping here! Don't you boys know any nice songs?
bruckner4 11:48:18 AM
at the zenith!
James (host) 11:49:20 AM
We are on the same wave length. It was my planned first song on list. Any guesses what;'s next based on earlier tuneage?
bruckner4 11:50:49 AM
bruckner4 11:51:01 AM
"behind the counter?"
Bradgic 11:54:37 AM
Great show James, thanks!
James (host) 11:56:13 AM
It is always me that is most thankful for the folks that choose to be here/hear with a guy like me to partake in the tunes that swirl in my head and searching and seeking
