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 wonderful KOTJ/C ZBC people. The best folks. Hope all enjoy this week's fix.
Saginaw 9:05:40 AM
Good morning
James (host) 9:05:54 AM
Hello Sag;naw
Fred 9:06:00 AM
Good morning
DJ Simon 9:06:43 AM
Here's a new and improved livestream we're testing if anyone wants to give it a try:
bruckner4 9:07:02 AM
Mornin’ Kotj!
DJ Simon 9:07:36 AM
If you try out the new stream, let us know how it sounds, if there are any glitches, etc.
James (host) 9:07:40 AM
Howdy Fred, b4 and DJS household
Bradgic 9:09:15 AM
Hey good morning all! I nearly missed this being enmeshed in faucet finish choices.
James (host) 9:10:05 AM
Surface and finishes are important
Verb Crunch 9:10:07 AM
@DJ Simon checking your new stream! Comparing to old stream. Audio is FM air?
James (host) 9:11:29 AM
I also have the levels down since last week there was glitchiness
DJ Simon 9:12:00 AM
@Verb – I believe so, yes.
Heather Grunwald 9:12:05 AM
A rocking great start to the day! 🖤🚲
Bradgic 9:12:31 AM
Sounds good today over here.
James (host) 9:12:33 AM
Do what I can to disturb the peace..
James (host) 9:12:57 AM
Hi HG! 🙏🚲
Verb Crunch 9:13:17 AM
Regular stream sounds fine. On my tiny iFõn the Simon stream sounds a little more compressed - like the FM air audio. I like it!
Brian Clary 9:14:06 AM
Hola hermanos y hermanas. Dios los bendiga
Bradgic 9:14:16 AM

What's Moocher's favorite dessert???
j. johnson 9:19:03 AM
Hiya KOTCers!
DJ Simon 9:19:32 AM
@Verb - It's actually the Judy stream - I'm only testing. Come to think of it, the audio source is likely the same as the regular stream.
DJ Simon 9:20:03 AM
(i.e., not FM air audio.)
j. johnson 9:20:21 AM
just tried both streams - they sound pretty much the same to me, but I'm running at low volume (suppose i could throw on the cans)
James (host) 9:20:32 AM
OK no takers on the riddle. I'l save to ignore during the back announce.
Dj w/out a cool. 9:23:33 AM
j. johnson 9:23:39 AM
i'm like, i dunno, chocolate MOOCH?
James (host) 9:24:55 AM
Sponge cake.
James (host) 9:25:11 AM
That one's freshly baked...I am not.
Fred 9:27:21 AM
New stream has less crackle. When i had another audio interrupt, stream came back choppy so similar challenges in that respect to old stream.
James (host) 9:27:54 AM
I have the levels lowered more than last week....
Verb Crunch 9:28:25 AM
@Simon I’ll check / carefully compare both when I’m in the studio. Big issue with the ZBC stream is it’s not https - not secure.
Elnor Vashti 9:28:44 AM
DJ S-new stream sounds very similar to streamguys. there seems to be a subtle difference but who knows?i've decided to stream them both at once. KOTJ * 2. double your pleasure!
DJ Simon 9:30:22 AM
@Verb - This new one isn't https either.
DJ Simon 9:33:29 AM
@Fred - Are you listening on a web browser?
PiGuy 9:44:00 AM
Morning James and the Friday faithful. It was a dark and stormy day.
E 9:44:51 AM
Hey J!

П​Е​Р​Е​Р​О​Д​Ж​Е​Н​Н​Я translates as Rebirth

It is Ukrainian

James (host) 9:58:14 AM
Yeah well in my tony neighb strewing the streets with our garbage is a protest.
James (host) 9:58:36 AM
Wow I got the Stacy's Mon reference right
ex DJ tamer 10:05:25 AM
Ukrainians who grew up speaking Russian are understandably switching to Ukrainian for everything now. Russian & Ukrainian languages have a lot of vocabulary in common, something like 60%, but the grammar is quite different.
ex DJ tamer 10:06:25 AM
The album title "де ш​у​к​а​т​и н​а​с" translates as "Where to find us"
James (host) 10:10:14 AM
On the Z or Bandcamp, currently ;-)
ex DJ tamer 10:13:50 AM
"A mysterious recording of a hitherto unknown Smodnya band 'Komora' was found in the archives of the Oblast Record Office in the summer of 2023"
James (host) 10:14:27 AM
Ooooo interesting....so no true origin or date of release. Glad I found it.
-bot 10:15:02 AM
good morning KOTJ-verse
James (host) 10:17:20 AM
Hey there original -bot...and anyone else I didn't properly greet...
James (host) 10:17:29 AM
Like, HiPi!
Dash Riprock 🇮🇪 10:19:57 AM
Stormy ⛈️
James (host) 10:20:20 AM
Next one ends the set with a bit of a freakout.
James (host) 10:20:50 AM
Wow so the 10-11am storms are actually happening as predicted...that's amazing
-bot 10:22:41 AM
seems to be clearing up here in Rozzie
Verb Crunch 10:23:28 AM
my iphone just sounded an EBS style alert. Flash Flood Warning. Radio plays music. Commercial stations will tell you about their "No Repeat Workday" while a tornado rips up your house.
ex DJ tamer 10:25:10 AM
Because the commercial stations are no longer truly local?
James (host) 10:26:27 AM
A storm of guitars and thundering drums here at KOTJ/C
Dj w/out a cool. 10:29:04 AM
Great, set James
PiGuy 10:31:30 AM
Pouring up here along the 128 region. Some dangerous conditions driving.
Fred White 10:32:50 AM
Happy Friday James. Sorry I am late to class
Verb Crunch 10:33:24 AM
@xDJT i think many commercial stations aren't live, or are understaffed. ZBC is no better, most of our programming this summer is pre-recorded too, James being on live now is the exception.
j. johnson 10:36:05 AM
we'll get this web page crap-ola mopped up soon - let's chat somehow tomorrow
Richard Random 10:37:39 AM
Good morning James and all you Kickers. Alternate stream sounds good on my phone. Very crisp.
Verb Crunch 10:38:19 AM
James - CRANK YOUR LEVELS! Make the stream distort :)
PiGuy 10:41:03 AM
Thought it was clever that WMFO bot shows are credited to DJ Rick Deckard. That would be the Blade Runner himself for those who aren't as nerdy as myself.
James (host) 10:41:25 AM
I'm not touching the levels.
Richard Random 10:43:48 AM
Hey, PiGuy, I saw you talking about Tanglewood on last week’s chat. Mrs Random and I met at a show there in 1969–B B King, The Who and Jefferson Airplane
Verb Crunch 10:46:07 AM
@RR that's an epic meet !
James (host) 10:47:11 AM
PiGuy 10:47:52 AM
RR, that's great! In 1970 they let Bill Graham program a set of shows. The Who, Santana, Miles Davis and more than I can recall were on the lineup.
j. johnson 10:48:16 AM
@Pi - “It's a shame she won't live – but then again, who does?”
James (host) 10:51:30 AM
Again, that's wild....I was 8 years old when that happened.
James (host) 10:52:17 AM
What a gem this Rock Section tune is!!!
Saginaw 11:02:20 AM
If you are talking about The Reds, I agree
Dj w/out a cool. 11:03:25 AM
Sounds like the poison girls may have been poisoned by Mary and faithful
James (host) 11:03:45 AM
That one too but was refering the the colors of our time rock sction tune
-bot 11:04:05 AM
I'll be donating blood today in your honor James.
James (host) 11:04:36 AM
YAY -BOT! Save some for the KOTC Blood Drive...details to come!!.
-bot 11:04:53 AM
will do
Richard Random 11:05:32 AM
@Pi, the show we went to in ‘69 ma have been one of the Bill Graham shows— I bought my ticket at the Filmore East in NYC. I think Mrs. Random may have also.
James (host) 11:07:36 AM
Sadly I can't give blood. Can't spare a pint. Toxic and super low WBC
Brian Clary 11:16:32 AM
“Hey if you don’t cool it you ain’t gonna hear any more music”
PiGuy 11:18:48 AM
@j.johnson, "I want mote
PiGuy 11:20:26 AM

James (host) 11:50:08 AM
Awwwwr Truly my pleasure!!!

Next week it's the Chemical show home studio infusion show.
PiGuy 11:52:08 AM
Here's to the old gang and the gang leader.

KILLER show James
Richard Random 11:54:33 AM
Good show again, James.
James (host) 11:55:35 AM
To all that come here/hear and put the great in congregate, all the best. Truly a pleasure and humbled by the gift of time and generous support....In these times.
