Listener comments!

  3:35am Billy Jam:

Welcome to another edition of "Put The Needle On The Record" - the weekly radio program that is hip-hop and rap based but can veer off into other areas (so long as it ain't crap). Today's guests will include Saigon - the longtime BK emcee who recently got his big break after appearing on the HBO series Entourage (he is on the road and will phone in at approx 330pm EST), and Talib Kweli who this week released his digital only album Gutter Rainbows which we will be hearing some tracks from today. The interview was recorded at a club in NYC a month ago -right before Christmas - when he had the record release party for this album. I talk with him about various things including Barack Obama since Talib was one of the most vocal supporters of Obama during the election. Note that this is the last in-studio show for four weeks. Next week is the big DJ special WFMU remote from the Oakland Museum of CA. Two weeks is live from the Oaksterdam Gift Shop. More details to follow here in comments and on the mic later today.
  3:46am Billy's Helper Pedro:

Thanks to Bryce for posing for the top WFMU sticker photo. Thanks to Ericka K in NJ for sending in the second WFMU sticker down - the one of the back of a Trailblaxer. The photo below the playlist song data is from Mike East (on the West Side) in NYC who writes, "Here's a picture of the fridge in my office on W 55th st. I have a great view across the Hudson from here.Your show is always on as the sun goes down bringing my week to a close. Thanks for bringing the jams! ps - let me know if you ever need any gear rentals or studio space" - Thanks Mike! Below his pic is one from Jay at Upright Citizen's Brigade Theatre in NYC where WFMU's "Seven Second Delay" with Ken and Andy is broadcast two Wednesdays a month. The lower pic of mixer and records is by Billy Jam from his NYC home record collection. If you would like to have your WFMU sticker pic included here then email your DJ ("billyjam@wfmu.org") your snail mailing address and he will send you out a sticker for you to take pics of anyhow you see fit, and send back to your DJ via email or Facebook for future publication on a WFMU playlist. Thanks for listening and for giving a damn.

  3:34pm Japanic:

  3:41pm ALF of Hip Hop Slam:

  3:43pm Cecile:

Hey, Carl Weathers showed up on Arrested Development! Saigon's not the only one...
  3:53pm Nat the Parker:

great interview!
  4:00pm LizGig:

Hey Billy! Nice profile of All City Records in The Ticket today. Not so nice is that City Discs and Zhivago in Galway have closed.
  4:02pm northguineahills:

I turned a new coworker onto the WFMU applet solely on Billy's playlist.
  4:03pm CheriPi:

Old Kinks!
  4:06pm The Breton Drinking Company:

  4:06pm Cecile:

"What if Chinn and Chapman produced the '65 Kinks? It might sound a little like this..."
  4:08pm Tall Paul:

Yo Billy and everyone how you all doing? Really enjoyed the Saigon interview. Yo Bill is it okay to plug Laz-E's show later on? Peace, One Love
  4:08pm LizGig:

Catchy, but the drum machine reminds me of Hooked on Classics. Not a fond memory.
  4:09pm ALF of Hip Hop Slam:

Tall Paul!? What's up dude???!!!!
  4:09pm northguineahills:

New Seeeeefeeeeel!!!!!!!
  4:12pm Tall Paul:

Yo Alf, how are things, really enjoyed your mix from 2 weeks ago. When can we get it? I am good its a bit cold here though.
  4:13pm ALF of Hip Hop Slam:

@ Paul
  4:20pm Tall Paul:

Yo Alf, thanks for this. I will check it out later after Laz-E's show.
  4:22pm northguineahills:

  4:25pm chadsey:

i just heard that "man, what time is it?" and it was pavlovian. i immediately started salivating. or is that sativating...
  4:33pm LizGig:

  4:33pm Tall Paul:

Yo Bill thnaks for this, takes me way back when I was a teenager dancing to the ska beat.
  4:34pm CheriPi:

hello Nat, Terry, Paul, ALF, LizGig, CHAD, Cecile, Chris, Cheri, NGH, and all else tuned in......Thanks for listening to W F M U
  4:42pm ben drinken:

The interesting thing about these riots in Egypt and North Africa in general is that these are Arabs and mostly Muslim and do not drink. In America and UK, other places people would need to get boozed up to get to the point of having the guts to riot.
  4:44pm CheriPi:

Great show today Billy Jam-Radio Hall of Famer in the making.
  4:46pm Ike:

Ben, as some commenter on the NYT site pointed out, if you have to bribe 10 diff. people to get a driver's license then you get pretty mad, probably mad enough to riot without drinking.

That's a very heavy thought, so to lighten the mood, I just want to add: BOOBS.
  5:00pm Bad Ronald:

Hey all, happy Friday. Boobs indeed!
  5:12pm Cecile:

aw. man. RIP Eyedea.
  5:12pm ALF of Hip Hop Slam:

R.I.P. Eyedea! :-(
  5:15pm Nat the Parker:

i didnt know Eyedea was RIP, damn
  5:16pm Cecile:

Yeah. So, so sad. THey had at least three tribute shows to him in Mpls./St. Paul.
  5:22pm Cecile:

on a lighter note, all this scratching is making me itch.
  5:27pm Cecile:

HOUSE music.
  5:28pm LizGig:

  5:28pm Cecile:

ay mami.
  5:39pm procedura:

cheers billy J
  5:50pm Cecile:

All my money is going to iPhone apps... :D
  5:53pm procedura:

The Rhyme of the Oppressed ::
  6:02pm Feral Parsnip:

I, for one, have seen enough boobs for the moment...

  6:04pm Feral Parsnip:
