Kick Out the James! (ZBC Rock)


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.

Step 1) Friday morning: listen to James. Step 2) Enjoy some familiar bands and learn about new ones Step 3) Spend the week exploring said bands. Step 4) Anxiously wait for Friday morning to do it all again. Thanks James.

Our souls are hungry for meaning, for the sense that we have figured out how to live so that our lives matter, so that the world [will] be at least a little bit different for our having passed through. – Harold Kushner

FUN FACT: the name "Metz" has a Waltham connection, and every year there is a Metz Automobile gathering at the Waltham Museum on Lexington St. http://home.earthlink.net/~metz1914/metzcar.html
