Damn. Great bass/drums on this track. Great on headphones.
Avatar Fri. 3/28/14 7:53pm Billy Jam:

considering that the show is only an hour long I think that I fit in a good variety of the best music (hip-hop) there is - love it, and love the challenge of trying to play a broad balance of hip-hop….REALLY appreciate you tuning in live today or in archives later…..Mr Fine Wine is back this week with a killer stack of funk 45s ready to set loose on the turntables
  Fri. 3/28/14 7:53pm Fine Wine:

Sounds like Jonathan Richman rapping!
