  Fri. 11/18/11 9:21pm filmchick:

Got my new speakers cranked all the way up!
  Fri. 11/18/11 9:22pm Ike:

Hey Billy Jam! Great to hear you! @spidermanc, we don't really have a "watershed" here. I forget if it's 10 p.m. or 11 p.m., but after a certain point you can play things that are "indecent" but not things that are "obscene" -- but what the fuck does that mean? The FCC refuses to define these terms, so who the fuck knows? Nobody, that's who.
  Fri. 11/18/11 9:24pm JB:

Killin it dawg !! Azeem !! yeeeuuhhh ! Whats up with some Celsius 7 tonight? ( I know, no requests ; ) Do i need to send you some radio edits?

  Fri. 11/18/11 10:08pm G:

  Fri. 11/18/11 10:11pm Billy Jam:

  Fri. 11/18/11 10:11pm PB:

  Fri. 11/18/11 10:36pm ledzeppelinsucks:

I am reading about these privately run prisons. It saves the state money on budget spread sheets and makes politicians, judges and others money by bribes. Kids caught out late at night are being sent to these shit holes for 6 months by judges that benefit by corruption.
  Fri. 11/18/11 10:37pm Billy Jam:

  Fri. 11/18/11 10:41pm lexdawg:

*PB* nah... as much love as I have for toots (he created the Bam-Bam riddim ffs) Bob was the greatest reggae artist of all time

  Fri. 11/18/11 10:46pm ledzeppelinsucks:

  Fri. 11/18/11 10:48pm PB:

@lex, as great as Bob Marley & the Wailers were, to me they were like the Beatles of reggae. In other words, a safe choice but one that can't really be argued against.
  Fri. 11/18/11 10:50pm eastvanhalen:

  Fri. 11/18/11 10:55pm ledzeppelinsucks:

They should make a song asking why MUNI drivers put the heat on broil during rain. Or why people in SF wear layers of cotton, wool and other absorbent clothing in rain and think rain and 60 degrees is 'COLD'
  Fri. 11/18/11 10:55pm Ben Drinken and smokin:

  Fri. 11/18/11 11:34pm olde gold digger codger:

when I was there we had to bring our gold to the "city" to get paid the most. this was back in the 80's...1880's...once we tried to sneak out a huge bag of weed we traded from some mexicans. the government was there and one of the mexicans warned us and whispered "you are going to get frisked, yo!" and then that is when I think the Frsco thing began. because of the "frisk, Yo!"
  Fri. 11/18/11 11:39pm filmchick:

Mr. Billy(Ham) Jam, I have to say I have enjoyed myself tonight. Nice ,easy night with great tunes . I hope this becomes a semi reg thing.
