Listener comments!

  10/2 11:57am Cecile:

Looking forward to catching it on the archives! Be well, Billy. Stay out until 25 o' clock in the morning.
  7:03pm other david:

a little late, but made it!

great opening interview. it's funny, billy sounds Irish on WFMU... but sounds American when talking to Irish MC's :)
  7:04pm Caryn:

Ah, I've missed that accent...
  7:05pm other david:

Also - yeah, spot on regarding Irish hip hop/rap.

We mock the fuck out of anyone who dares to do what they believe in.
  7:05pm Tall Paul:

Yo Bill and Other Dave what up? checking in. Nice picture of a house in Coolock. Later Peace
  7:06pm Caryn:

It almost seems like as the interview goes on, Billy speaks with more and more of an Irish accent.
  7:09pm amEdeo:

@Caryn: Hahha-- yeah, I was noticing that as well.
  7:10pm Caryn:

@amEdeo: mind you, that's common. Happens to me too. After a day in Dublin, I'm speaking with an accent.
  7:11pm Tall Paul:

If anyone wants to clisten to the album you can check it out here: http://workinclassrecords.com/ even the track which is playing now. Caryn where are you from?
  7:12pm Caryn:

@Tall Paul: Finland
  7:13pm other david:

"when it kicks off..."

That's what I'm waiting for, Costello.. but little hope.

Believe we're raised to be battered, supposed to shut up and take it.

Caryn, I have to hear a Finnish Dublin accent some day!
  7:13pm joey in BT:

great mix
  7:13pm other david:

Yo Tall Paul - cheers for the link
  7:14pm Caryn:

@od: well, the next time I come over, we'll have to have a listener meetup
  7:15pm Tall Paul:

Hi Caryn I thought you were from Dublin when you were taking about the accent.
  7:16pm other david:

Caryn, definitely!

WFMU does Dublin
  7:17pm Caryn:

@Tall Paul: nah, just have a bunch of Irish friends
  7:18pm Tall Paul:

Guys, there is a Polish HipHop movie out called Jesteś Bogiem You are god. It is the story of Magik, Kaliber and Patafonika really good. For any old Skool the aging boys on Disco Scratch Radio had an interview with Patti Astor http://www.sonicity.co.uk/Resources/23_Ageing_B_Boys_Unite_Podcast__ABU_DS_Takeover_Show_%28DSR95%29_September_2012.mp3
  7:18pm other david:

Repeating myself - but gotta repeat it - there's a big class in Ireland who mock people who relate to rap and use it as a way to express themselves.

And these tracks are great, thanks for doing this Billy.
  7:20pm Caryn:

BTW, thanks for all the links, Tall Paul!
  7:22pm other david:

Thanks Tall Paul, will check the links after the show!

Lunitic great rhymes, background track reminds me of GIAA
  7:28pm amEdeo:

@Caryn: Whoops. Never hit submit on this.
Hah. Not precisely the same, but I often will catch myself incorporating pieces of other people's cadences into my own speech patterns.
  7:29pm Tall Paul:

Not sure if you all heard the tune Irish Tune if you haven't checked it out on YouTube here:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vQuSTH9CTT0. Oh Other Dave not sure if you know, Doom is playing in the TBMC next Thursday tickets available from All City
  7:31pm Tall Paul:

Yo Bill, any chance of playing some Captain Moonlight or Scary Éire?
  7:32pm other david:

this is superb. can we have another two hours? :)
  7:33pm other david:

  7:35pm Caryn:

I feel bad for Billy that his pledge widget is uncorked. Will have to dig around and see if I can afford to pledge sometime.
  7:37pm other david:

Me too, but I'll be donating in a few days - just broke this week!
  7:38pm other david:

larry gogan on wfmu, the world has imploded.
  7:40pm Caryn:

@od: yep, me too. Being on the dole really limits my pledging potential.
  7:45pm Tall Paul:

It is the master himself DJ Flip. Winner of the ITF
  7:45pm other david:

@Caryn: it's whatever you can afford, 10 bucks from someone who is barely scraping by means a lot more (imo) than 1000 from a rich person.

I don't know how a smart & awesome person like you isn't snapped up to a nice well paying job.
  7:49pm Caryn:

@od: aw, bless. Just heard about a job opportunity today, but will have to wait and see if I get it. It'll be for only a couple of weeks, but it's better than nothing. I think the main problem is that unemployment figures are rising, and there are very few jobs available.
  7:52pm Tall Paul:

Caryn where you based? As you have a language you could get something working in a Call Centre Orientated business.
  7:53pm Tall Paul:

Caryn Best of luck in the interview hope all goes well for you and that this is the start of something positive for you.
  7:56pm Caryn:

@Tall Paul: medium-sized town near the Russian border. Very few job opportunities and patchy internet access. I'd move, but can't afford it.
Thanks for the well wishes. No interview, just need to see if I'm chosen (it's a job translating an app into English).
  7:57pm other david:

Best of luck with it Caryn:)

There are a lot of gifted people on the dole around the world, who, given a chance, have a lot to offer their community & country.

You'd be an asset to any company Caryn. .
  7:58pm Tall Paul:

Hi Caryn check this here I am not sure what your background is but there might be something here you might be interested in http://www.candidatemanager.net/cm/micro/joblist.aspx?mid=YFDY&sid=BBFCX
  7:59pm other david:

Billy Jam - thanks for this!
  8:00pm Caryn:

@od: I'm blushing over here!
@Tall Paul: you're just full of links! Will do, thanks!
  8:01pm Caryn:

Great show, Billy! Well worth waiting for.
