  5/5 10:28am Billy Jam:

Welcome to the first in a 3 part May 2011 series of WFMU live remotes from San Francisco in conjunction with the KUSF In Exile folks. This week and the next two weeks will be broadcast live from the SF Bay View district's Light Rail Studios where, since March, KUSF In Exile DJs (kidked out of their own FM studios @ USF on Januarty 18th) have been broadcasting daily from online (the fight to SAVE KUSF & get it back on the FM dial rages on) with help from WFMU who, in a show of solidarity, have provided KUSF In Exile with free broadband space (listen anytime at SaveKUSF dot org). So this means that these 3 shows will be streamed twice online at savekusf dot org & of course here at wfmu dot org + on the WFMU FM dial in NJ. Each week I will be joined by KUSF DJs who will spin sets or else bring in guests from the Bay Area radio/music scene such as KZSU's longtime hip-hop DJ Kevvy Kev who will be among today's guests. Each week I will have 3 main guests doing 45 minutes of programming each. I will do the other 45 minutes -at the start of each week - either spinning my own music or having a special guest spin or maybe talk. Today Kenya Lewis - one of the most active people in the Save KUSF movement - will join me on my (opening) 45 minute segment. Other guests today will include David Bassin, Irwin, and David Ford. Thanks for listening to WFMU and KUSF In Exile
  2:53pm djspidermanc:

deep joy
  2:56pm Billy Jam:

up first on interview will be Kenya Lewis and Jennifer Waits + lots of music
  3:02pm ALF of Hip Hop Slam:

What's up everybody?! SAVE KUSF......DAMMIT!!!!
  3:03pm Radioman:

*tuning in*
  3:04pm Radioman:

Hi to SF!
  3:06pm Kieran from Galway Ireland:

San Fran talent rocks!
  3:06pm Cecile:

billy jam!
  3:07pm Amanda:

Hi everyone! Feel free to give me a shout here, Billy, if cell contact is unreliable
  3:09pm Regina:

Receiving loud and clear on the SaveKUSF stream. RealPlayer locked it in at 159.9 Kbps.
  3:18pm Amanda:

mic levels sound good...
  3:18pm chris:

Yeaaahhh! Howdy everyone! Loved your blog today, Billy Jam. Thanks for rockin it in the bay. KUSF & WFMU best pair since purps and IPA.
  3:30pm Ike:

I've been loving listening to KUSF in Exile. Sadly the history of FCC decisions strongly indicates very little hope for KUSF getting back on 90.3... they'll probably say, yet again, that they don't get involved in format changes, and ignore the rest of the issues here... sigh. :(
  3:31pm Carmichael:

Hiyaz Billy and the Ex-pats.
  3:31pm Carolyn:

Yeah! Pop-O-Pies!
  3:33pm Ken:

Hi Billy, Kenya, Jennifer, Ike, Cecile and everybody else! Sounding excellent here in JC!
  3:35pm Cecile:

hey, Ken! Sounds great here in MN, too!
  3:36pm Cecile:

Is Earthquake on this? He sounds unbelievable.
  3:37pm Billy Jam:

hey KEN and everyone tuned in> Good to be here in SF. KUSF IN EXILE folkers and listeners says WHAT UP NEW JERSEY!
  3:39pm Radioman:

I've just discovered Billy Jam's nice Twitter account and the Twitter account of KUSF. I'm following!
  3:40pm Amanda:

Billy -- feed just dropped for about 3 seconds, just fyi, unless that was intentional!
  3:42pm Amanda:

maybe it was more like 2 :-)
  3:42pm Cecile:

Too bad you gave up the chiba and only listen to Barry Manilow now, Billy...:D
  3:43pm Cecile:

oooh, Santana sample!
  3:45pm chris:

Freakin' inspired production on this cut. Carlos Santana's a local Bay Area cat, too.
  3:53pm Amanda:

feed is out
  3:53pm Amanda:

feed is back
  3:54pm Feed:

  3:55pm Regina:

@Ike: The non commercial, educational portion of the FM spectrum was put there for a reason. This was back in the days when nationwide radio station feeds cost a fortune. Licenses were granted to operators who operted a single station or a small group of stations in the same state, etc. No one foresaw cheap transmission, which made it possible for people who wanted big salaries to start a "non profit" network of radio stations. There are no stockholders who are getting big bucks. Just the administrators of these non-profits that are getting big bucks put into their direct deposit checking accounts. Its time for the FCC to wake up and smell the coffee.
  3:56pm Cecile:

THIS is what I'm talking about. I think NPR can do indie music all right, but the real artistry, the real innovation in programming is being done by independent radio.
  3:56pm Radioman:

This acoustic kind of test pattern is absolutly awesome!
  3:56pm Cecile:

Great set, David.
  3:59pm zephir:

save kusf/kusf in exile PROBABLY shouldn't have made it this far. Too much progress to be totally cynical at this point. good show, everyone.
  4:01pm zephir:

did i say good show? i meant great show. my bad.
  4:01pm Ike:

@Regina, I agree and I sure hope the FCC will wake up, but I am a pessimist about radio sometimes. Thank Dog that FMU got ahold of its own license long ago.
  4:02pm chris:

Thank Ken that FMU got ahold its license a long time ago! Viva Ken!
  4:04pm chris:

BTW, David, that last segue... beautiful!
  4:04pm Radioman:

Viva Ken! Viva WFMU! Viva Billy Jam! Viva freeform! [and so on…]
  4:13pm Mitch Aidelbaum:

This is awesome! I'm from NJ and live in San Francisco, thanks for doing a show about our town, this is awesome!
  4:14pm Amanda:

That is so cool -- welcome Mitch!
  4:18pm Sean Daily:

Not even CLOSE to first comment! Woo hoo!
  4:18pm Feed:

117th comment. w00t!
  4:21pm Amanda:

We have lost the feed, guys... sorry... buffering now and shld be back momentarily
  4:22pm Feed:

teehee! olly olly oxen free!
  4:25pm Radioman:

Stream from Dusseldorf, working.
Stream form Dublin, working.
Stream from San Francisco, not working?
  4:26pm other david:

@Mitch - imagine my surprise tuning into WFMU and hearing for the first time, local artists from here in Ireland - I'd never heard them before tuning into WFMU! That was a while back, this station is something else :)
  4:26pm Radioman:

I am from Germany and I wirte Dusseldorf, not Düsseldorf. That's hard!
  4:27pm Feed:

um... laut!
  4:28pm other david:

Ich liebe kuchen und WFMU
  4:28pm Radioman:

Yeah, very important!
  4:29pm Amanda:

Seems to be all right now... knock on wood! We were not out for very long. Thanks, all, for your solidarity.
  4:32pm other david:

Heh, maybe when Harold Camping departs on May 21st he'll leave KUSF his transmitters :)
  4:35pm Radioman:

Something to do if we loose the stream again:
  4:42pm Radioman:

O, there is an o too much. Total o-verkill!
  4:44pm Carolyn:

Yay Irwin! Sounds great here in the Mission.
  4:44pm ben drinken:

i recognise this brazillian sounding track. can't place where i have heard it before.
  4:45pm Cecile:

bonde do role, ben? It sounds a lot like Marina Gasolina.
  4:54pm other david:

Great tunes Irwin :)
  5:01pm Radioman:

@billyjam: By the way: I follow you as @dattilografomat on Twitter, not as Radioman. That is another guy…
  5:06pm Amanda:

Billy -- you are sounding a little quiet on mic...
  5:07pm other david:

Find it hard to believe Billy has been in the States so long - that accent is still so Irish (with just a slight American twang!)
  5:10pm northguineahills:

Wow! I've never have heard this Don Cherry before. Awesome!
  5:14pm luz:

Hello from Buenos Aires, argentina.
  5:18pm ben drinken:

he sounds more northern irish to me for some reason. don't know his background. but i think most irish people who came to either canada or u.s. over the long years ago were from southern ireland. that might be how americans think an irish accent is homogenized but is not
  5:22pm Nat the Parker:

any1 feelin some J Boogie?? bay area!
  5:22pm Cecile:

Hey! A Zion I track is on the iPod game DJ Rivals. That's what i was going to post. Hip-hoppers, get your tracks on DJ Rivals, it's like DJ Hero but for iPhone.
  5:22pm other david:

Ben - it's Dublin, might have even been what we call a "D4" accent in its original form :)) (don't hit me Billy!)
  5:22pm julia:

I'm an old friend of Shawn Bates, living here in Jersey after many years in SF.... least i get to hear you this way! Always loved Billy Jams.
  5:23pm Amanda:

you're off mic Billy!!!
  5:23pm PMD:

In San Mateo, NJ at heart, so great combo!
  5:24pm Cecile:

And Zion I is fun to beat robot drones to!
  5:26pm Princess Cake:

save KUSF!
  5:29pm ben drinken:

oh, ok other david. always wondered about the different accents from ireland because tv and movies seem to only cast the leprican and green eyed folks speaking twang. but i do know there is a difference in how people speak in the north and south of ireland. funny, most americans don't realize the difference between the two historicaally. the orange and the green. they think they are to wear green on the 17th of march and drink a lot. one of the highest dui days of the year. dumb. just because they think they are irish and it's time to drink.
  5:32pm other david:

Basically Irish accents differ wildly every 10 miles :)

Yep there are historical differences, but when it boils down to modern culture, we're the same really and differences have to be forgotten about.

Anyway, loving this set!
  5:33pm northguineahills:

Is this Billy Ocean's son? jaja.
  5:34pm Cecile:

Trust me, the med students have the best drugs...
  5:40pm Billy Jam:

Thanks for listening - Next week = air by Andre, Carolyn, Fari, and Mike from Babylon Burning spinning sets - also Leticia from KFJC may be stopping by and I am planning on doing interviews with SF artists such as Roach Gigz and DaVinci and Equipto.
  5:41pm Amanda:

That mic is still not on fyi, unless you were standing too far from it :-) Love the sneak preview track
  5:43pm Billy Jam:

Monday is the SF Tech Summit at Kabuki in Japantown with KUSF in Exile
  5:44pm other david:

Looking forward to it Billy, thanks for another great show
  5:45pm Billy Jam:
