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.

Hello Good ZBC KOTJ people. It's here/hear. The weekly fix. So wonderful to have all that have chosen to give the most precious commodity of time to a guy such as me. Let's do this.
DJ Simon 9:10:45 AM
Good day, sir.

PiGuy 9:25:37 AM
Morning KOTJ and the expanded sect. James, the Marriott gym story is new to my ears. When was that? I worked at that hotel as an AV guy from '84-'87 just after it opened.
Dash Riprock๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ช 9:26:05 AM

Peter Francis Joseph DeFazio 9:34:57 AM

Dash Riprock๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ช 9:36:03 AM
Hello James , hello all .
Shanti 9:36:05 AM
Hello James!

T-Mobile 5G. I'm quite happy. with phone and internet I'm saving $140 a month.
Peter Francis Joseph DeFazio 9:36:26 AM
James (host) 9:40:14 AM
Results may vary in certain areas. Works for my needs better.
ex DJ tamer 9:42:50 AM
Longtime T-Mob customer here. Still paying same monthly rate I signed up with 11 years ago.
James (host) 9:43:25 AM
Have the 5G internet?
I Heart Noise 9:44:34 AM

Well we know what Groucho had to say about gala days. http://boatagainstthecurrent.blogspot.com/2015/02/movie-quote-of-day-duck-soup-on.html
Shanti 9:54:45 AM
I suggest to go immediately for being noticeably out of breath, faint and or any chest tightness or pain. Any professionals would agree!
Peter Francis Joseph DeFazio 9:58:01 AM
Huh? Google translate is great...init?
Peter Francis Joseph DeFazio 9:58:44 AM
Low BP because you are very athletic--athletes have lower than normal BP.
Peter Francis Joseph DeFazio 9:59:54 AM
I have an image in my mind of a woman with the face of Al Pacino
Jamie YBN 10:00:45 AM
Jamie YBN 10:07:07 AM
Loved Grease
James (host) 10:07:38 AM
Slick stuff
I Heart Noise 10:21:27 AM
This reminds me of Territorial Pissings by Nirvana
James (host) 10:21:53 AM
I heard a lot of others there, too.
ex DJ tamer 10:30:38 AM
Fans of Bandcamp Friday: today is the last one until Aug. 4.
James (host) 10:31:43 AM
Oh that's good info. They keep threatening to end it but it continues. I wonder why the suspension?
ex DJ tamer 10:31:49 AM
Perhaps they'll do a special on Juneteenth, like in the past.
I Heart Noise 10:32:16 AM
I hope Epic won't ruin Bandcamp. That would be a tragedy.
James (host) 10:32:21 AM
Ahhh that does make sense.
I Heart Noise 10:32:33 AM
Epic's owner been posting some hot takes on Twitter lately
James (host) 10:32:36 AM
James (host) 10:32:58 AM
Interesting. Nutty biz owners
I Heart Noise 10:42:59 AM
Epic business owners with their epic takes...
James (host) 10:49:15 AM
And Epic fails and lies
bruckner4 10:51:38 AM
er...jesus show material.
James (host) 10:52:36 AM
For at least many years
I Heart Noise 10:53:20 AM
Always up for some Bob
James (host) 10:53:44 AM
Love this cut. Was surprised to see I hadn't played it in 4 years
James (host) 10:54:16 AM
"Another hot cut"
I Heart Noise 10:54:41 AM
I heard the Slim by Sugar on the Z few weeks ago. What an intense song - so dark, so angry.
James (host) 10:55:09 AM
That's Bob but he seems to be getting a bit happier in his old age
I Heart Noise 10:55:19 AM
Hope so.
I Heart Noise 10:55:55 AM
I was once on the subway carrying a bio of his by Michael Azerrad and the guy next to me said both the author and Bob are assholes
I Heart Noise 10:55:59 AM
True story
I Heart Noise 10:56:25 AM
Bob's reputation as a grump is well-known
I Heart Noise 10:57:32 AM
James (host) 10:57:49 AM
I know Michael Azzerad and interviewed him. He nailed me good. Rightly so. I knew his sister here in Boston. We went to my first Gudied by Voices show together.
James (host) 10:58:11 AM
Now he looks like the former Arby's chef on the ads.
I Heart Noise 10:58:16 AM
James (host) 10:58:52 AM
I Heart Noise 10:58:56 AM
That's what rock journalism does to you
I Heart Noise 10:59:21 AM
You turn into Arby's chef...
James (host) 11:01:55 AM
When seeing him there a lot of look a likes in the crowd.
I Heart Noise 11:02:21 AM
And is this band fronted by young Paul Westerberg?
I Heart Noise 11:02:29 AM
Very much reminds of him....
James (host) 11:03:34 AM
Darlings and friends of Steve Albini...and produced

James (host) 11:12:44 AM
Bunnydrums and Faith healers...agree Iโค
James (host) 11:13:39 AM
I don't think, even though I have it, I ever heard it before. Given to me by listener donator DJ.
delores 11:15:30 AM
quite a jam going on
James (host) 11:15:40 AM
DJ Simon 11:16:12 AM
Wow, this song is freaking out Lulu.
James (host) 11:16:25 AM
Not like a Can jam than a Phish DMB jam
Dash Riprock๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ช 11:16:27 AM
Poor pup .
James (host) 11:16:51 AM
It's got some squelch and squeelch to it
DJ Simon 11:17:12 AM
She was barking her head off.
delores 11:17:21 AM

James (host) 11:20:47 AM
Another LuLu Freak out??
delores 11:23:23 AM
James- thank you for the songs
delores 11:24:01 AM
i spoke w/ Matt last week to say goodbye
James (host) 11:24:11 AM
A small token for the larger generosity and dedication to the cause
Brian Clary 11:24:29 AM
Yes, I sounded just like that at Mass Monday morning following the Bruinsโ€™ loss. Lord have mercy
Peter Francis Joseph DeFazio 11:26:21 AM
delores 11:28:18 AM
will Toil. see you then
James (host) 11:29:58 AM
I'll be there. Not at Hoo Doo Gurus
Peter Francis Joseph DeFazio 11:30:23 AM
hard to believe that Legay tune is from 1968. Has a much later sound.
bruckner4 11:31:49 AM
bittersweet, jfk.
James (host) 11:31:52 AM
PFJDef Yes!
I Heart Noise 11:32:57 AM
Early XTC was so spazzy. I remember hearing another song from that era they did - "This is Pop"...
I Heart Noise 11:33:24 AM
Last I heard Andy Partridge is a grumpy old guy who is into Tories
I Heart Noise 11:34:05 AM

Peter Francis Joseph DeFazio 11:38:02 AM
I Heart Noise 11:38:26 AM
Tom Waits said in an interview that his worst trait is that he start laughing while at funerals
I Heart Noise 11:38:33 AM
I remember that...
I Heart Noise 11:39:11 AM
I Heart Noise 11:39:51 AM
No, not throwing a shade at you!
I Heart Noise 11:40:03 AM
Just kind of a random thing that popped into my mind...
Peter Francis Joseph DeFazio 11:42:34 AM
You are the Ying and Yang of Sensitivity
Saginaw 11:46:50 AM
Good show, Sir. Have a great day
DJ Simon 11:46:51 AM
I read that John Lennon added a note that only dogs can hear to the end of "Day In the Life".
James (host) 11:48:35 AM
Oh...to make them lose it?
James (host) 11:52:23 AM
all the best to the best people around. We are the fringe. Most folks don't get the music and even more so ME! That's what makes it amazing to have all that are dedicated to choose spending time with a person such as me.
Peter Francis Joseph DeFazio 11:53:21 AM
have a great rest of the day...will listen to the main headlines of DN, and then contemplate lunch...
DJ Simon 11:54:10 AM
Thanks to another fine Friday morning, James.
