This show is dedicated to DJ Brennie whose two year anniversary of his passing was on March 4th. Was in Ireland for that day and now today am over in Greater Manchester in the district called Chorlton - here in the living room of diehard WFMU fan (and frequent playlist comment poster) Spidermank - where he and the incredible and magnificent Loop Skywalker (coming in from Nottingham) will be presenting their music sets - UK hip-hop. Also in the house is WFMU Manchester fan Rachel. Thanks for listening to WFMUK
Avatar Fri. 3/6/15 4:29pm Billy Jam:

Loop Skywalker is a renowned UK DJ battle champion, recording artist, and an all round cool ass guy. An avid ambassador of turntablism/skratch music - as well as being a DJ / producer he is also vice president of the UK chapter of the IDA (International DJ Association). He gets much play on this show (his 2013 album The Phonkey Phonomusicianist got lots of play). He is a regular contributor to this show with his killer mixes. And he will be one of the four special guest DJ contributors to the upcoming 2015 WFMU Marathon Mix (with ADA, Steinski, and ALF). Today his mix will feature an incredible overview of UK hip-hop - spanning many years - all killer.
Avatar Fri. 3/6/15 5:13pm Billy Jam:

Regular musical guest/contributor to this show Jimmy The Hideous Penguin and his respected organization Community Skratch Music (CSM) are launching a crowdfunding campaign to press a record: a skipless record. Being a self-described "non-profit community of skratch hobos who put on gigs and release music for free" they need help in meeting the costliness of vinyl pressing and shipping. Participate in the fund drive here www.kickstarter.com...

CSM also pressed up two brand new Jimmy Penguin albums on CD (featuring Jimmy Hatetank and Djackulate respectively!), commissioned and printed exclusive artwork and clothing, compiled some old 7"s, CDs, cassettes and digital downloads and put the whole lot up as a kickstarter project.
Avatar Fri. 3/6/15 6:00pm Billy Jam:

Spidermank has been listening to WFMU for a decade….He love's Mr Fine Wine's show so much that he plays live drums along with the Downtown Soulville intro theme every week (Note: that's 1am Manchester time). Other WFMU shows he likes include Marty McSorley's, Ken's, and this show - he is one of the most regular commenters). He is a longtime musician (and dj) who has also worked behind the scene in the music biz and witnessed various Manchester music scenes first hand and in the mix. A multi-instrumentalist he just took up the drums seriously four years ago. His former group were called DJ Spiderman so after they broke up he took the name. But then dropped the DJ and switched to "Spidermank." An avid snowboarder, who listens to WFMU archives on his headphones on the slopes, he has made two snowboard trips already in 2015 - in Italy and France where he was last week.

Sadly missed my gateway to the weekend, this week, and dag but the archive is snaffled: gets just a couple syllables past "drinking coffee, drinking tea," and kablooey. It's loopy. I'll figure out who to poke, and do that. Meanwhile: sounds like a beautiful day at the spidermank's. xo, all. J
  Sat. 3/7/15 10:19pm loop skywalker:

massive apology to all my hip hop family in scotland wales and ireland...i know there is a great scene in your countries...i didnt really have links to your music..but i do know krash slaughter,dj stagga and monkey,my boys savawar and flip..all rocking the scene.Apologies i didnt get right into true uk as a whole.
Avatar Sun. 3/8/15 7:16am Billy Jam:

@ Loop n Spidermank - Thanks again guys for makin it happen. Loop don't worry about not getting to everything music wise - you did an amazing concise job given just 30 minutes….If you want - you can do a Part 2 down the road?….. TNX to all who tuned in from all over both live and in the archives.... Hey Jessica - double checked all the audio archives (mp3 and PopUpPlayer) and all sound perfect on my end. Possible your signal wasn't strong enough and it was buffering or that the time you tuned in there was an issue but none was reported otherwise. Try it again now or from different place….again THANK U FMU FAM………and don't forget the next weeks will be the fundraising 2015 WFMU Marathon!
Avatar Sun. 3/8/15 7:24am Billy Jam:

PS - I had invited diss1 (from Scotland) to contribute to the show too but he never got back to me
