  9:25am dwayne d:

I'm an American that just moved to the island of Jersey in January. This island rocks. It's beautiful, peaceful, a really tranquil place to live. You can drive by an amazing farmland and then run into spectacular coastline five minutes later. I lived in manhattan for 14 years before this, and the island of Jersey is definitely a welcome change of pace after 14 years of Manhattan.
  9:31am Wade:

  9:35am Parq:

Do Jersey cows listen to Frankie Valli and say "fuggedaboudit"?
  9:41am Baba:

I think that's "cryogenics."
  9:47am dragonflyshards:

Billyjams, methinks a live broadcast of you milking a cow would fit in nicely with Michael Shelly's show.
  9:47am fishmonkeystew:

Um, did anyone else just lose the stream?
  9:47am annie:

i lost the stream... ?
  9:50am Dom:

Me too. Glad its not just me. I hope the show is archived
  9:50am dragonfryshards:

yes.Just lost it.
  9:52am ?:

  9:53am Alex:

Mine is dead too.
  9:57am Tom ( The Bactrian Support Network ):

Urinary plumping problems this morning ?
  9:57am Doug Drummer Some:

Hey hey Billy Jam and the Friday crew! Having a barrel of monkeys listening. Keep up the great tunage, Sir William, and see all y'all next Friday with three hours of the ever-exalted YUSEF LATEEF!
  10:00am Tom ( The Bactrian Support Network ):

I highly recommend one of these :: -- http://www.magnumdynalab.com/x_sr100.htm on your FM antenna outputs.... but for any other "streaming" problems I do not recommend .....
  10:01am Tom ( The Bactrian Support Network ):

Antenna inputs I meant ... don't know if it will work for a transmitter.. hmm it just might !!!!
  10:02am texas scott:

  10:03am Cecile:

Agh. 20k strean is down, and no beta stream either!

  10:05am Cecile:

  10:05am fishmonkeystew:

Yep, all the streams went belly up. I'm going into withdrawals.
  10:10am Cecile:

  10:12am Billy Jam:

  10:15am jeff m:

you're back on, for a few minutes now BIlly
  10:20am fishmonkeystew:

Working for me too, but VLC asked me for a username and password. I hit cancel and the stream stayed up anyway. Ahhhhh. Much better.
  10:22am Cecile:

You know, a crown dependency sounds like a better deal than a American protectorate or territory.
  10:25am GP:

Good afternoon/morning Mr. Jam - Great to hear you on the radio again and also to learn about some Channel Island history. - Hurry back soon to FMU we miss you.
  10:29am sahak:

yeah west new york represent
  10:31am fishmonkeystew:

You would still exist in my mind.
  10:38am Parq:

MS Player stream is working again, for the rest of you who are stuck using it at work, like me.
  10:40am Carmichael:

Well well, Hiya Billy!!
  10:40am Ken:

Thanks for the reports everybody, the studio here in New New Jersey lost all connection to the internet.
  10:42am Ken From Hyde Park:

The 90.1 signal is good. 128k stream good. The live broadcast is very good. All is good here.
  10:43am sahak:

  10:43am GP:

32k MP3 stream is good.
  10:47am sahak:

  10:47am GP:

  10:50am Dom:

This is his myspace but he hasnt updated it for over a year http://www.myspace.com/wackrow
  10:50am Joe Steele:

Gah! Billy Jam! I didn't know you were gonna be on 9-12 EDT.
  10:50am David Lee Roth:

BILLY! at 32kps!
  10:52am fishmonkeystew:

  10:55am Cecile:

I think it was because the writers and programmers were so gun-ho on people in the US not "getting" ska. When pretty much anyone who saw a ska show or heard the Specials or Desmond Dekker was hooked
  10:55am Cecile:

yay Natty Bo!
  10:56am Jenn:

Shout out from NYC.
Beautiful accapella voice.
You've got to ska ska ska!
Love the accent.
  10:56am nasok:

ska was huge in local american scenes, but without commercial radio support it never attained true culture-wide acceptance. if i remember correctly it was when clear channel started buying everything up and turning all radio stations into classic rock format. early 90s?
  10:58am [-__-]:

i beeive he might be referring to Ska's popularity in the 60's in England, etc
  10:59am Cecile:

I think the current youth see it as a big niche, like Goth. And it's certainly worked its way into a lot of rock music.

And I myself was talking about ska in the US in the late 70s.
  10:59am Ike:

Great to hear you back on the air again, Billy! BTW, way back at 9:07, I was listening on FM and the background/bed music sounded good and I could hear the vocals fine even before you turned them up and killed the bed.
  11:00am Parq:

I don't remember first-wave ska getting played in the US. By the time second wave broke in '79, Peter Tosh, Johhny Nash and Desmond Dekker all had top-40 hits -- Dekker's in the 60s.
  11:02am GP:

Ha ha. I though for a second you said the "Blancmange" film festival...had to go back up and look at the real name.
  11:02am Tom ( The Bactrian Support Network ):

nuffin like the Tea and a Biccy
  11:05am Cecile:

Ealing Studio Films!

And what's up with Bill Forsythe? He hasn't made a good film in 20 years.
  11:05am Ike:

Tea! Tea! Tea!
  11:06am Tom ( The Bactrian Support Network ):

.... But I'll pass on those Jellied eels ty ....
  11:07am Jenn:

Cucumber sandwiches?
  11:08am Cecile:

I do like a good eel roll at the sushi bar
  11:10am Cecile:

YAY Billy Jam singing!
  11:11am Jenn:

YAY! Thanks for mentioning KOOKUMBER sandwiches Billy!

Save me one.
  11:21am Jenn:

Prodigy! Lovely song Isaac.
  11:22am GP:

A round of Marmite for everyone!
  11:23am GP:

<Claps> Nice song Isaac.
  11:24am Cecile:

hurrah, Isaac
and yay!!!! Billy Jam is back!
  11:28am Jenn:

Bring dat beat back Isaac!
  11:29am Jenn:

That was bad. Like Michael Jackson bad.
  11:31am north guinea hills:

this broadcast makes me happy :)
  11:32am sahak:

great show billy jam made me morning thats for sure thanks a lots i gots to run catch you later
  11:32am Joe Steele:

Is that Ray Jay?
  11:34am Parq:

I'm with him -- "Some/Hot" is a killer.
  11:35am Carew:

How come everybody from Jersey has an English sounding accent?
  11:36am Cecile:

Parq, I love that movie.
And the curator is awesome!
I have friends who are knowledgeable Marilyn fans such as he.
  11:38am north guinea hills:

Do any people in Jersey still speak Jèrriais? Curious.

(yes, i did history in university)
  11:48am Cecile:

AH! I can now jack my body with impunity again! Thanks for the techno, Billy
  11:48am Ike:

It's definitely not quitus.com, that's a parked ad page owned by my evil employers or a competitor. And quietus.com isn't working for me either. Anyway, nice techno.
  11:52am Ken From Hyde Park:

Can Jersey residents enter the Olympics under their own flag? On a related note, Chicago was eliminated from the 2016 vote.
  11:53am BSI:

Sorry comrades, I'm a bit late to the party.
are we having stream issues again?
shall I take the TINY BLACK PILL that will end all my pain?
  11:53am Cecile:

YAY Donald Glaude!
  11:54am Ike:

The AAC+ stream sounds perfect this morning.

Oh, and Xanthe has a beautiful voice.
  11:58am GP:

I put Marmite on my vanilla ice cream, just sayin.
  2:58pm Lisa M:

Welcome back Billy jam!! I Tried to check in last two weeks, but was hella crazy at work. Glad to see you back:-)
