ZBC Rock

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.

Thanks to Girlsville for the recognition w/o prompt.

Even bigger than that @james. Taylor Swift is at Gilette for 3 shows!
James (host) 9:15:07 AM
Wow. Three
Dash Riprock🇮🇪 9:15:37 AM
$1,500 is the cheapest ticket .

Is it possible that I feel your shows, both here and Toiling are
Moles Knows 9:27:16 AM
reaching an entire new level??
bruckner4 9:27:17 AM
this one never ages.
James (host) 9:28:49 AM
Moles...that's what I hear/here. This is really all that's left....Maybe something devine?
Moles Knows 9:33:00 AM
It is Devine and we are all blessed to benefit from your gift. It’s disappointing to hear about Any Rourke. I was a big Smiths fan, Shocker…. Last week I stumbled across my ticket stub from their 8/5/86 show at Great Woods.
James (host) 9:33:39 AM
Quite kind
Dash Riprock🇮🇪 9:35:05 AM
RIP Andy .
PiGuy 9:37:31 AM
Morning KOTJ and the kickers. Don't know about blowing your wad too early, James, but you are certainly blowing the doors off with the opening set.!
James (host) 9:39:10 AM
HiPi. Thanks. Know this is a slice of Pi heaven
Dj w/out a cool. 9:40:06 AM
A combo of ZBC MBR ERS BCN and FNX Those were the days
PiGuy 9:41:42 AM
Didn't want to get out of my car and walk in to work fearing what I would miss. What I can say is that I am amazed at the talent in those bands from that era.
delores 9:43:28 AM
Hello all, hello James . Thank you for your 1000 shows archived, I really love and appreciate it😘..... going back to lurking
James (host) 9:44:18 AM
HiDi! Always kind
Dj w/out a cool. 9:47:28 AM
Yes James YES
ex DJ tamer 9:47:28 AM
This song = what happens when ZBC DJs form a band
raoulvanhorn 9:48:03 AM
Mornin’ James and Kickers! Congrats on the 1,000th! Love these classics! This Bulkhead cut is a favorite.
James (host) 9:49:55 AM
Hey X-Tamer and RVH. Exactly on Zjs band.
raoulvanhorn 9:52:15 AM
Was Bulkhead made up of Zjs? Didn’t know that.
James (host) 9:52:40 AM
A few. Tom Devaney for sure. There was Bulkhead house
I Heart Noise 9:53:51 AM
Tom was in a band with Leah (Turkish Delight)
I Heart Noise 9:53:57 AM
I Heart Noise 9:54:09 AM
I put out reissues of both TD albums
ex DJ tamer 9:54:45 AM
ZBC DJ Pete Ryan also in Bulkhead
I Heart Noise 9:55:10 AM
Awesome - lots of local music to discover
James (host) 9:55:16 AM
That is correct. I've had Try Harder on my Classick set list for a while. Now I get that I heart is that I heart which I suspected.
I Heart Noise 9:55:23 AM
Dash Riprock🇮🇪 9:56:06 AM
raoulvanhorn 9:56:45 AM
Turkish Delight was another great one. That was a golden age in Boston.
James (host) 9:57:37 AM
Maybe one of the last. The gold has lost it's luster but thrives in it's own new way.
I Heart Noise 9:58:10 AM
I credit my buddy Thor (Petridisch) for talking me into putting out Turkish Delight reissues. I remember asking people on Twitter if they remember TD and there were a ton of responses
Dj w/out a cool. 9:58:16 AM
It's thriving in Upton right now
ex DJ tamer 10:00:01 AM
I 🖤 Petridisch
raoulvanhorn 10:02:44 AM
“Thriving in Upton” would be a good name for an album, or a novel, or something.
I Heart Noise 10:02:54 AM
Yeah, he's got a lot of knowledge about local music scene of the 80s and 90s. I learned so much from him - people like Jeff and Jane Hudson, TD etc etc
ex DJ tamer 10:04:02 AM
I meant his own music. It does not rock, however.
I Heart Noise 10:05:30 AM
He did some guitar performances, but yes - non-rock mostly, agree!
I Heart Noise 10:05:51 AM
and probably wouldn't fit this specific show
Thomas Mullaly 10:06:15 AM
wsmu was using carts in '91, so I bet zbc was too
ex DJ tamer 10:06:26 AM
The bot plays Petridisch late at night.
I Heart Noise 10:07:19 AM
Awesome, you guys are awesome for keeping the flame alive
ex DJ tamer 10:08:14 AM
When Negativland played Johnny D's, they played samples from carts not from sampler machines or computers. The guy had a huge stack of carts!
I Heart Noise 10:09:39 AM
There's a great documentary on Negativland/plunderphonics scene - its called Sonic Outlaws
I Heart Noise 10:09:44 AM

James (host) 10:15:46 AM
Life changing sound.
James (host) 10:16:09 AM
Even when I'm anemic and weak as a kitten....still have some muscles
I Heart Noise 10:16:30 AM
Rock on
I Heart Noise 10:16:43 AM
Don't let anemia get you down
raoulvanhorn 10:20:39 AM
Re: Negativland, I think I saw them at the Western Front. Anyone remember? They burned some toast on stage. And yes, they used a lot of carts.
ex DJ tamer 10:21:25 AM
I remember that!
James (host) 10:23:04 AM
For those keeping score at home....this is a Porky cut
PiGuy 10:23:11 AM
Are we in the Urgh! section now? Not looking forward to my 10:30 meeting. Gonna try and steer them to keep it at 30 minutes. Don't they know I have a show to listen to?

I Heart Noise 10:25:29 AM
Love Pylon. Vanessa is a great musician and a great human too.
I Heart Noise 10:26:09 AM

Don't get me wrong, I love the new style ROCK James brings us on Friday....But. (-:

James (host) 10:38:29 AM

raoulvanhorn 10:38:34 AM
Don’t they say that’s one of the signs?
Frank Coleman 10:39:12 AM
Ha! There's always that possibility.
