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.

Mornin' folks. Chat is open!
Dash Riprock🇮🇪 9:05:50 AM
Hello James and Simon . See the MBTA is back to their shenanigans .
DJ Simon 9:06:43 AM
What now?
Luke! 9:07:49 AM
Heyooo good morning rockers!
Dash Riprock🇮🇪 9:09:05 AM
Speeds on all tracks now 10 to 25mph max …
bruckner4 9:09:06 AM
djs! -- are you the substitute teacher?
DJ Simon 9:12:39 AM
I am indeed. I expect everyone to be on their best behavior.
Saginaw 9:12:55 AM
Good morning
PiGuy 9:13:34 AM
Morning all. FYI, my son the teacher rides the red to blue to get to East Boston. Seems lately I see EZ Pass trips in the Ted Tunnel. Can't imagine why.
Dash Riprock🇮🇪 9:14:03 AM
Roger that , best behavior . Saginaw , good day sir .
Dash Riprock🇮🇪 9:15:44 AM
As for the T , they are understaffed . They are short 1,100 bus drivers . Nobody wants to work there .
Dash Riprock🇮🇪 9:16:33 AM
BPS , allegedly down 700 teachers …
PiGuy 9:16:45 AM
Dash, it seems that no one wants to work at all.
Dash Riprock🇮🇪 9:19:51 AM
As an electrician by trade I would work for the T but I believe you have to drive a bus just to get your foot in the door . No thanks . Pay isn’t that good , split shifts , verbal abuse on the riff raff bus routes ? I’ll pass .
DJ Simon 9:19:52 AM
Seems that way. I know I don't, but I've got no choice.
raoulvanhorn 9:20:08 AM
Morning all!
-bot 9:21:55 AM
outside, the trains don't run on time
Dash Riprock🇮🇪 9:22:42 AM
It’s definitely a staffing issue . FRA is the OSHA of the rail system . Trades are capped on how many hours are worked every 24 hours .
Verb Crunch 9:23:02 AM
getting around on bicycle has always been faster than taking the T. Including bicycling from Wakefield to Morrissey Boulevard was 20 minutes faster than Orange Line to Red Line.
Dj w/out a cool. 9:23:15 AM
Mornin roCKers
Verb Crunch 9:23:27 AM
Living near BC - 10 minute bicycle ride = 50 minutes on the Green Line
KOTJ 9:23:28 AM
Hi folks. I’m on a 12 foot ladder sanding spackle. Rock on hood folks. Miss and lerv ya all
Heather Grunwald 9:23:51 AM
Hello and good morning!
Dash Riprock🇮🇪 9:24:12 AM
Get a Baker Staging James . Christ …
Verb Crunch 9:24:31 AM
some rockin' tunage today KOTJ!
KOTJ 9:24:49 AM
Hg, I was awoken by my ear buds in middle of night saying face time with heather grunwald - 2:30 an. Hope it didn’t go thru!
Dash Riprock🇮🇪 9:25:43 AM
Hello all .
Dash Riprock🇮🇪 9:29:20 AM
Also not surprised that 2 departments , that have colossal issues ( MBTA , BPS ) . Their superintendents have resigned recently . BPS has had multiple resignations . Just under 200K , great benefits etc and people don’t want either gig . They are a mess .
Dash Riprock🇮🇪 9:31:57 AM
Keep sanding James , wear the proper respirator too . 😷 . Those Covid masks are not for that type of task . Chop chop 👏 .
Heather Grunwald 9:33:38 AM
Mmm... pizza 🍕 🍕 🍕
Heather Grunwald 9:34:33 AM
Ha! That's funny. I have an android phone, so no face time!
Verb Crunch 9:42:01 AM
oh wow thx for the mention!
Verb Crunch 9:43:40 AM
show's up on mixcloud but haven't embedded the tracklist yet so that it tells you what song's playing as you listen.. I'll get that done later today. https://www.mixcloud.com/cape-cod/soundsyrup-march-9-2023/
Verb Crunch 9:59:57 AM
the irony of Pepper Kings "Zero Commercial Potential" with catchy hooks giving it commercial potential..
DJ Simon 10:01:10 AM
Ha – true, Verb.
DJ Simon 10:02:02 AM
Televisi Masih Menyala = Television Still On
DJ Simon 10:02:48 AM
Next song has best band name of the day (so far).
Dash Riprock🇮🇪 10:07:05 AM
Loved Evel Knievel . Was the talk of the town ( 5th grade ) when I jumped the dumpster at Lil’ Peach on my Huffy .
bruckner4 10:08:14 AM
snake river next for you, dash!
Dash Riprock🇮🇪 10:11:00 AM
Neponset River , Muddy River , Chelsea Creek , Jamaica Pond , Houghton’s Pond . You name it Bruckner , I’ll do it . No worries I have good health insurance and my Nana’s Lark Scooter 🛵 .
DJ Simon 10:12:30 AM
Strap some Estes model rocket boosters on to that scooter and you're good to go.
Dash Riprock🇮🇪 10:15:52 AM
Roger that Simon . Estée Lauder Rocket Boosters on me Jean Naté Yellow Scooter 🛵. Looking good , smelling good .
Pete 10:29:48 AM
good morning James and all
Barry Hart 10:37:21 AM
Good morning,James and fellow Kickers,hope you’re all doing well.Thank you,James,for sharing Naujawanan Baidar and the Jansen-fascinating to hear music from Afghanistan and Indonesia.Thank you as well,DJ Simon,for translating the Jansen song title.Speaking about the poor service on the T,one morning l was riding the 77 bus and l saw one of the pharmacists from my store going by on her inline skates.She wound up outracing the bus and getting to work much sooner than I did.
bruckner4 10:38:11 AM
always a freak scene when the substitute shows up!
Dash Riprock🇮🇪 10:41:02 AM
KOTJ 10:41:02 AM
Country music here. 🤮
Roger Jermyn 10:41:23 AM

Dash Riprock🇮🇪 10:41:26 AM
Should have had a mask for this gig .
Roger Jermyn 10:42:48 AM
Hüsker Dü too? Its like you are inside my setlist man
Dash Riprock🇮🇪 10:43:17 AM
Hip will be happy .
I Heart Noise 10:43:36 AM
Finishing re-reading Bob Mould's bio
Roger Jermyn 10:43:58 AM
How is that, been meaning to pick it up
I Heart Noise 10:43:59 AM
So this was very fitting
I Heart Noise 10:44:19 AM
Its great! He's very open about his experiences in music biz
I Heart Noise 10:44:33 AM
Although I usually hear that Bob is an asshole/old grumpy man
Roger Jermyn 10:44:52 AM
Yeah Bob has seen some shite
Dash Riprock🇮🇪 10:45:26 AM
Dressing room shjte ?
I Heart Noise 10:48:07 AM
All kinds of shite, really. He mentions how a gay man in his hometown got killed.
I Heart Noise 10:48:17 AM
Somewhere in that book
I Heart Noise 10:48:51 AM
He's from Malone, NYC - apparently not a very progressive place
I Heart Noise 10:50:05 AM
And yes for Negativland...
Dash Riprock🇮🇪 10:51:03 AM
Thought there was some vandalism within the band . Dressing room trashing.
I Heart Noise 10:53:21 AM
Oh - there was! The story about the blue paint.
Dash Riprock🇮🇪 10:53:40 AM
McGeoch book is my next read .
Roger Jermyn 10:54:15 AM
great set James
delores 10:55:05 AM
fantastic show
I Heart Noise 10:55:21 AM
Yeah, sweet tunes - always good to hear Minutemen, Du and Negativland. Not familiar with Steve Stain, though.
I Heart Noise 10:55:54 AM
SST signed a lot of avant artists towards the end of the 80s and not everyone was happy about it...
I Heart Noise 10:57:32 AM
Rise above! We gonna rise above!
I Heart Noise 10:57:38 AM
Yes we will
Roger Jermyn 10:58:06 AM
Damn this is a set for the ages! Its already turned all the way up! I can't turn it up any louder!
Moles Knows 10:58:43 AM
Reliving my youth…. Thank you.
Roger Jermyn 11:01:06 AM
yeah its a direct feed to my tape and record collection from '86 and up
I Heart Noise 11:02:08 AM
Awesome! So much goodness
Roger Jermyn 11:03:33 AM
Gen X Freedom Rock! Turn it up man!
I Heart Noise 11:04:06 AM
RIP Van Conner, RIP Mark
I Heart Noise 11:04:36 AM
ST in their Stooges phase...
Roger Jermyn 11:04:37 AM
Screaming Trees too. Damn and yes RIP to them both
Roger Jermyn 11:05:04 AM
my band used to cover Bed of Roses back in the day
I Heart Noise 11:08:26 AM
Trotsky Icepick reminds me of this defunct website that was called Satan Stole My Teddybear
Moles Knows 11:09:22 AM
I can’t believe these guys are still around…
I Heart Noise 11:09:45 AM
Oh - they put out a new EP in 2020
I Heart Noise 11:09:49 AM
Had no idea
I Heart Noise 11:10:45 AM
Buffalo Tom sounding quite like Dino Jr
Roger Jermyn 11:10:53 AM
Sunflower Suit? Hell yeah
Roger Jermyn 11:11:05 AM
He produced this album so...
I Heart Noise 11:11:28 AM
Makes sense!
Roger Jermyn 11:11:51 AM
a Malingerers set staple. James may have seen us cover this with George
Moles Knows 11:12:49 AM
El Kabong was the only Z influenced album I ever purchased that I said yuk to.
Roger Jermyn 11:12:52 AM
I got a fever and the only cure is more wah wah
Roger Jermyn 11:21:26 AM
Volcano Suns for the win
DJ Simon 11:24:18 AM
Yeah, VC were sounding pretty good.
Uncle Ash 11:26:08 AM
I Heart Noise 11:26:32 AM
Well, that's a nice song title...
Uncle Ash 11:26:39 AM
*on this day ... March 10, 1990 (Saturday) The Jesus and Mary Chain The Rollercoaster EP (August 1990) *dull/smokey (... short set?!) Opener: Nine Inch Nails 👈👀👍 @ Citi Club, Boston, MA https://www.setlist.fm/setlist/the-jesus-and-mary-chain/1990/citi-club-boston-ma-2bc2b4be.html
I Heart Noise 11:26:50 AM
There was a punk band with a song called "Sit on my face, Stevie Nicks"
I Heart Noise 11:26:58 AM
So this almost sounds like a response
DJ Simon 11:27:20 AM
The Rotters
I Heart Noise 11:27:33 AM
Bradgic 11:29:26 AM
Regarding Buffalo Tom: Bill Janovitz has a book coming out. Jon Garelick has an interview with him in The Globe.

I Heart Noise 11:33:35 AM
I Heart Noise 11:34:27 AM
Is this Hope Sandoval singing?
I Heart Noise 11:35:22 AM
I'm guessing not - RYM mentions both Sandoval and Kendra Smith being vocalists for Opal
Bradgic 11:38:23 AM
This song would make a good mash up with Sooner or Later.
I Heart Noise 11:41:57 AM
Mould mentioned this song in his bio and said its probably where Husker Du breakup originated
I Heart Noise 11:42:34 AM
Hart wanted it for Du album, but Bob shot down the idea arguing it sounds too much like a certain other song
Pete 11:50:53 AM
Had to limit myself to background music mode today due to work. Just reading the chat messages now.
Dash Riprock🇮🇪 11:54:44 AM
