Kick Out the James!

Jun 23, 2023 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM

ZBC Rock

With DJ Simon

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.

Rebroadcast of KOTJ from June 22, 2018

James is at an appointment, so it's a classic KOTJ today. He'll be back next week though, ready and rockin'!

Kick Out the James!

Ah, Numb.er - one of my favorite albums from that year. They're due for a new one.
KOTJ 9:29:05 AM
HA I knew ya'd dig that DJS. I'm back. Second nuking!
DJ Simon (host) 9:29:40 AM
James is in the house!
KOTJ 9:30:06 AM
They took me early for a change.
PiGuy 9:33:47 AM
Morning KOTJ, DJS and all the rest. You know who you are. Here's hoping it is as good a day as it was for the KOTJ of 2018.
KOTJ 9:34:07 AM

KOTJ 10:25:35 AM
It's uncanny how any rando KOTJ will repeat and old or new show song or two. Last week this one was played. But....one of my all time fave z-tunes
Dj w/out a cool. 10:26:06 AM
WE don't Tortureeeeerrrrrrrrrrrrrrr
I Heart Noise 10:26:48 AM
Hits just keep on coming...Cosmic Psychos now
I Heart Noise 10:27:25 AM
And that song became basis for songs by both L7 and Prodigy
I Heart Noise 10:27:39 AM
Fuel My Fire
KOTJ 10:31:32 AM
Hey what just happened? Is the stream dead?
KOTJ 10:31:49 AM
Hmmm....no blanks in files I made last night....

it's back.
DJ Simon (host) 10:32:38 AM
I thought it was my wireless system dropping out.
Moles Knows 10:32:39 AM
Cosmic Psychos! Australia’s National Treasure.
KOTJ 10:32:49 AM
My new at BI is a bit wifi challenged....thought same here DJS
I Heart Noise 10:33:27 AM
There's a doc I saw on Psychos. I think Eddie Vedder is in it.
KOTJ 10:33:53 AM
June 18, 2018 chat, Moles said, "Moles Knows 10:10:46 AM As Australia's National Treasure would say: "She's A Lost Cause"..."
Moles Knows 10:38:46 AM
I do love the Psychos, but not as much as you James. Sending prayers and positivity to you.
I Heart Noise 10:40:42 AM
Ultravox at their punkiest
KOTJ 10:41:05 AM
Awwwwrrr shuck MK...Ultra ...Kind
Fred 10:43:02 AM
Holiday in Cambodia has n word, any thoughts?
KOTJ 10:45:37 AM
I approve like the use of nigger in Gun Club's Love of Ivy. It's contextual. Describing a mindset. More intellectual era. Not used as a derisive slur.
I Heart Noise 10:45:58 AM
Yeah, Offspring also had an n-word in a song
I Heart Noise 10:46:10 AM
But it was in context of cops beating people up
I Heart Noise 10:46:37 AM
The song is LAPD
I Heart Noise 10:46:54 AM
So did Lennon
I Heart Noise 10:47:11 AM
Its in the song title of his
I Heart Noise 10:48:57 AM
Most blatant example
KOTJ 10:49:30 AM
Everyone got that?
Fred 10:49:30 AM
At the time, it was more acceptable but probably shouldn’t have been. My mother was a civil rights leader and she didn’t worry about using the word when describing what racists would say. But that was in the 1970s when Jim Crow was still in the recent past.
Fred 10:50:33 AM
What would you think about bleeping like f bombs?
PiGuy 10:52:18 AM
Definitely classic KOTJ today. It's a shame when work gets in the way of great tunes. Oh well, first world problems.
I Heart Noise 10:52:37 AM
Also - cover of Zappa's "Joe Garage". Looks like he's wearing blackface, but I doubt it.
I Heart Noise 10:52:56 AM
He had black members in the band, so it makes no sense
KOTJ 10:53:20 AM
So saying no white person can ever use the word in a lyrical contextual sense? I guess Flannery O'Connor is soon to be eradicated. I also think it's bullshit white privilege to decide the context. Censorship is another form of control like bullshit liberal culture that now decides what is appropriate or not. What do I know.
KOTJ 10:54:01 AM
Free speech is abridged.
I Heart Noise 10:54:30 AM
I think its forgivable in context. The issue is that few people would be willing to figure out of its context related or not
I Heart Noise 10:54:36 AM
Especially now...
KOTJ 10:55:17 AM
Maybe a board of intellectuals, rights leaders, pols, and clergy should create board to decide what we can and can't say?
Fred 10:55:46 AM
I believe black people decided white people couldn’t use this word anymore, not liberal elites but I don’t know
I Heart Noise 10:56:02 AM
Welp, the other side of it unmoderated dump like current Twitter
I Heart Noise 10:56:20 AM
You can say whatever you want there - no repercussions and it sucks badly
I Heart Noise 10:56:44 AM
Actually, there are repercussions - if you'll say something that Musk doesn't like
I Heart Noise 10:57:26 AM
I think some lines shouldn't be crossed - while censorship often sucks, the other side of it is equally bad
Fred 10:58:19 AM
Free speech has at least 2 forms: 1st amendment which is irrelevant for this discussion and public opinion which is constantly evolving and the older we get, the harder it
Jamie YBN 10:58:43 AM
wow, I missed a lot of chatter while I was at stop & shop... no time to get back in the loop, but just wanted augment any positive vibes that have been thrown James way..
Fred 10:58:43 AM
Gets to keep up
KOTJ 10:59:45 AM
Wolfgang Press. Get you sucka.
Dash Riprock🇮🇪 11:03:33 AM

Hopefully....sadly I was told recently I may be in he hospital longer.🤞🏼🤞🏼🤞🏼

Good morning DJS, James (& the gang).

Hello Michael
Michael Condon 11:17:39 AM
My first post since hearing the news on your health. All my best wishes go with you James.

Richard Random 11:29:10 AM
Good morning DJ Simon, James and all. Keep the glow on, James. Cool about Kelly Deal and Protomartyr. I’m keeping my fingers crossed for Toil (no pressure.)
KOTJ 11:30:09 AM
RR! Much appreciated and hoping here, too.
j. johnson 11:31:00 AM
PiGuy 11:35:19 AM
Maybe we can have a listening party in the hospital. Stranger things have happened.
I Heart Noise 11:37:10 AM
Not a song, but I remember I saw n-word in one of Nick Cave's novels
I Heart Noise 11:37:29 AM
Don't remember anyone else mentioning it in any way
KOTJ 11:38:54 AM
If there was great internet here....I'd be able to do a show here.
KOTJ 11:39:08 AM
I think I was on the phone with the mike open for this song.....??
DJ Simon (host) 11:39:35 AM
I was wondering about that!
KOTJ 11:39:46 AM
Didin't know it was so extensive. I should have replaced the track on the file....UGH
KOTJ 11:41:08 AM
gonna fix for archive....
John Fisher 11:42:52 AM
I'm glad you guys hear that. I thought I was gonna have to up my medication.
PiGuy 11:43:17 AM
That's OK. We had a Zoom meeting to announce our new CEO and first there was an open mic F'bomb and then a musician was giving directions over the phone in the middle of the trustees introducing the new guy. They had to wait for her to finish before going on. Quite the shit show.
Dash Riprock🇮🇪 11:45:53 AM
Thanks James , Simon. Fingers crossed for Toil .
Fred 11:45:54 AM
What’s a hydro powered tractor?
KOTJ 11:47:08 AM
I believe they have hydrostatic transmissions?
Fred 11:48:01 AM
I gotta get one of those! :)
KOTJ 11:48:08 AM
Maybe Hydrogen cell?
KOTJ 11:48:56 AM
Hey folks. the show ended with time to spare so there are a couple bonus non-Fall tracks at the end.
