Listener comments!

  10:05am BillyJam:

graffiti special today......Phone call ins and comments to playlist are most welcome on the topic of graffiti......Note that all of the pictures on the playlist (with exception of Subway Art book cover0 are by Jim an Karla Murray and taken from their highly recommended new book "Miami Graffiti" (Prestel) - the resident photo-journalist graf experts for every WFMU Graffiti special.
  12:12pm G:

I may be in the car during much of your timeslot today, so let me toss in a precomment now -- We'll miss you on the summer schedule... I bet for a lot of people in the eastern US (and even other timezones) you were part of the unofficial start to the weekend...
  3:02pm Timi Dz...Nutz:

Yeah I'm here Today!!!! and I got som"n to say....."Biiillllllyyyyy"
  3:03pm Tall Paul:

Yo Bill, how is the form? It was good hooking up with you. I hope everything went according to plan. Later Peace, one love Paul
  3:03pm Bad Ronald:

TAG You're it!!!
  3:07pm Cecile:

all this scratchin is makin me itchy
  3:08pm Jessica:

...and you're loved.
  3:16pm dc pat:

ok, gotta look into Hess Is More and Acoustic Dan now...
  3:24pm Paul:

Yo Bill really feeling B Pos really nice.
Acoustic Dan really cool.
Yo Alf big up, hope all is good with you.
  3:24pm Lisa M:

Hey Billy, late as hell, but always come to the party:-)
  3:26pm MG:

I'm not a super hip-hop fan but the songs you just played are quite amazing.

Just had to say it since I'm listening at work and am kinda bored.

Big hello from Montreal.
  3:27pm Joe Steele:

Got 75% of my DJ premiums on Wednesday. Boo ya.
  3:33pm doug from dc:

I've still got swag lag.
  3:33pm SF:

What about the effect that graffiti has on promoting crime? Scientists in Europe found that in an identical piece of street, people were more likely to steal and litter if graffiti is present on the street. Without the graffiti, they did not. A well controlled experiment.

What about the old lady in S.F. with a dry cleaning business out scrubbing graffiti off her business so SF doesn't fine her for "allowing" the public nuisance?
  3:33pm Cecile:

still waiting. waiting for my turn. My turn, it won't be long.
  3:37pm Cecile:

I think there should be areas for graffiti art.
Tagging is BS.
And there is also a correlation between public transit. I think graffiti is a valid urban artform, but frankly, when it's on or in the buses, people won't ride them. This has been studied forever.

But a great picture? My husband and I keep driving by this one car that has this perfect spray-painted eyeball on it. If all of it were that good and witty...
  3:38pm north guinea hills:

No one realizes how geographically isolated FLA is until you live there. It's the 4th most populous state, but no one tours there b/c it's a long detour (when driving), and outside the small cultural oasis of g-ville, o-town, & mia, FLA is a cultural desert.
  3:38pm Cecile:

And I mean gang tags. And ugly tags

one train car, I mean
  3:57pm popo:

raise the background music man, it is friday afternoon!
  4:04pm fe2cruz:

do any of the artists know of the graff made 3d in lego? http://www.flickr.com/groups/1093064@N23/pool/
  4:08pm Cecile:

that's incredible fe2cruz!
  4:12pm savory c:

what do you guys think of the stuff on paper wheatpasted about? some big others on tracing paper etc.
  4:16pm fe2cruz:

thanks Cecile. there is some crazy new talent in lego these days. They can build anything even the teenagers. It was nice too hear the writers react so kindly to it.
  4:17pm Pnut:

What does the entire panel on air today think of sidewalk chalk art, and how common it is becoming for sidewalk chalk artists to be arrested on charges of graffiti, especially in Boston? Is this kind of temporary, but significant art considered graffiti, and how would a graffiti artist that's trying to fight the system connect to, and empathize with the experiences of these sidewalk artists?
  4:18pm Paul:

Big Up the Irish Go raibh maight agat mo chairde
  4:21pm Cecile:

I think sidewalk chalk art is a genius idea and very cool. I wish they would do it here more. I mean, all you need to do is hose it off if there's a problem.

Besides, didn't they do that in Mary Poppins? ;D
  4:22pm Pnut:

I think its great, and yes, good call on Marry Poppins. I believe you are correct! :)
  4:25pm dc pat:

my kids are sidewalk chalk artists.
  4:28pm Pnut:

I think your kids are safe.... until they turn 18 and the law no longer finds it acceptable for them to be such. :/
  4:28pm Carmichael:

Dia Dhom Billy and Internet sawyers and scratchers.

Sidewalk chalk is the way to go. So is permitted graffiti art. But taggers and urban hooligans only understand a boot to the ghoulies. Which I am pleased to provide.
  4:28pm Cecile:

yeah, and more power to 'em.
  4:29pm Carmichael:

"sawyers"?? I meant swayers, like to the music.
  4:49pm FCC helpers:

Y'all cain't say no swayers on the radio.
  5:23pm Cecile:

great show! Congrats to everyone!
  5:24pm Bad Ronald:

I concur.
  5:33pm Jessica:

Acid rules the nation. Don't need no aggravation.
  5:34pm Jessica:

Ooh, awesome group portrait.
  5:38pm jeff_m:

coming in late. cheers Billy
  5:42pm Paul:

Posion was by Alic Cooper
  5:43pm Todd 76%:

"Poison" by Bell Biv Devoe! Yet another fantastic show today, Billy! Will miss you on air this summer...
  5:43pm trent:

wait, you like weed? wait, have you seen mary l-p with just her undies on? keep watching.
  5:46pm Cecile:

yeah, but I think Kool G Rap did Poison first
  5:50pm Todd 76%:

I think you're right, Cecile, but I think they expanded the beat into a pop/r&b song (chorus, bridge, etc.)...
  5:52pm Cecile:

Of course! It's a great version!
  5:55pm Todd 76%:

Isn't it? That era of r&b still kills me...your musical knowledge is always impressive, I gotta say!
  5:56pm Paul:

Yo Bill super show and very informative about the Graf history. Talk soon and have a great weekend. Peace, one love Paul
  5:56pm Bad Ronald:

dint u dj Cecile?
  5:57pm Cecile:

I did back in the day
But I was a crazy obsessive radio listener and rock mag reader beforehand
  6:00pm Bad Ronald:

OK so DJing was the symptom.
  6:40pm Chris:

Did I win the signed Subway Art Book???
Respect to Jim & Karla..Thanks for everything...
  12:43pm kreos:

was up this kreos 91 OTR K FTH K
