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.

Very sad… I dunno what’s happening to this town, I heard Toad was closing about a week ago and now Atwoods
James (host) 9:17:53 AM
DJ Simon 9:18:34 AM
It works! I can type a K without triggering the Ark player.
Crank 9:19:09 AM
Not sure why, I’d guess it’s the usual story of condos just consuming all the culture, but maybe someone else knows more?
Crank 9:19:33 AM
No worries James, the interruptions are kinda fun 🙂
Bradgic 9:20:56 AM
Good morning James! Checking out the K bug fix too. Wow..well what do you know. Thanks SpinitronVideo!

Toad was one of the few places with no cover ever
James (host) 9:21:36 AM
That's great! Thanks Tomiitron!

Tom...we have the same mailman. Jim/James

Verb Crunch 11:11:39 AM
Rise of the RADIO robots. They have arrived. Robot DJ tells you what you heard, talks about the band, when they're coming to town, cracks jokes, gives you local news and weather. It's a real service that's now available from a company called Futuri, and apparently it's surprisingly good.
DJ Simon 11:13:38 AM
So Max Headroom is real now?
-bot 11:14:33 AM
know future
Barry Hart 11:14:35 AM
Robot DJs-that sounds a bit scary-imagine calling the radio station wanting to talk to the DJ only to find out that it’s a robot.
James (host) 11:15:42 AM
Soory folk I can't seem to juggle the show chat today
PiGuy 11:16:55 AM
From work Zoom to Billy Zoom.
Verb Crunch 11:17:15 AM
Robot DJ can also do LIVE interviews, contests, talk to callers, etc..
I Heart Noise 11:17:17 AM
Always up for some Killdozer
I Heart Noise 11:17:35 AM
Female choirs....
I Heart Noise 11:19:01 AM
Sounding quite like Nick Cave circa Junkyard
Pi 11:19:47 AM
"Scam Likely" lol!
Roger Jermyn 11:20:58 AM
X followed by Killdozer...that is sure to get the blood moving!
j. johnson 11:21:00 AM
yep. it's the dawn of DJ-GPT, i'm afraid
-bot 11:21:45 AM
slipping into Peter C territory
Verb Crunch 11:23:46 AM
It's called RadioGPT. Don't think it'll affect stations like ZBC because volunteer DJ's still cost less than robots. https://vimeo.com/801620131
Barry Hart 11:24:38 AM
Thank you,James,for playing Rong and My Life with the Thrill Kill Kult.
James (host) 11:25:14 AM
Cool. I am like a chicken with my head cut off here/hear.
Barry Hart 11:26:09 AM
Glad to hear that it probably won’t affect college radio stations,Verb Crunch.
j. johnson 11:28:36 AM
love me some tubes
Roger Jermyn 11:29:11 AM
classic tubes
Barry Hart 11:30:13 AM
Totally tubular.
Elnor Vashti 11:31:23 AM
James, RadioGPT would never play DTMT...or any Tubes. you are irreplaceable.
delores 11:31:49 AM
Verb Crunch 11:32:22 AM
i interviewed the Tubes in the 80's, mentioned I bought "Young and Rich" when I was in High School. Quick response: "Oh that was YOU?" I guess the record was a total stiff.
Pete 11:32:43 AM
this sounds familiar...
James (host) 11:32:56 AM
NEver saw the tubes game show live
Pete 11:33:29 AM
good one Verb Crunch. I saw the Tubes a couple of decades ago in a small venue...
DJ Carbo 11:33:30 AM

Lots of smaller venues gone. No surprise that bands skip Boston right now...
raoulvanhorn 11:47:29 AM
that article doesn’t say it’s being torn down; says the space will continue. Sounds like the business is going away but someone will continue there?
Barry Hart 11:47:56 AM
I hope we see ever-increasing numbers of human cars on the streets.
Verb Crunch 11:50:50 AM
Mark E Smith saying "Alexa" ? Like Cool Greenhouse?
James (host) 11:51:17 AM
Sadly Barry it will be electric bikes and scooters. Those who chose to move on their own volition will be seen as annoying relics
