Avatar 7:09pm spidermank:

Yaay Jam days here
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:09pm Cliff:

I thought it was Michele sayin' she wants to sell drugs
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:10pm Cliff:

spidermank, that sounds good & twisty
  7:11pm Betamax81:

I CAN'T STAND cocaine!! Terrible drug...I only like the way it smells. Shout out to Ronald Reagan, a national hero!!!

Who is the woman with the Syl Johnson poster?

@Cliff - its a trip that becomes obsessive ,another realm of the whole vinyl experience , lush n luverly.
Avatar 7:14pm glenn:

i don't think that's a woman, rita.
Avatar 7:15pm Slick Goldtooth:

@cliff, Yeaah I think you're right, my brain is total mush,working too hard

Slick Goldtooth, it's ok, their voices are easy to mix up. Just gotta keep their personalities straight and you'll remember better

Haha truth ,they're a fun lot
Avatar 7:21pm spidermank:

self-unemployment keeps your music fresh Cliff , you aint ruled over by no fucka.
second hand technics are always worth a looksee
--intercepts the Billy Jam bound spliff and biplanes that joint
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:23pm Cliff:

I was gonna go with an Audio-Technica LP120, I'm a beginner so don't want to go second hand just yet
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:25pm Cliff:

There were some "audiophiles" lecturing me a couple weeks ago on Chris M.'s show, I said my budget was around $200 but they were giving me brands that start out at $500 *eyeroll*
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:27pm Cliff:

This was while Chris M. was playing Doug Sahm's "It's Gonna Be Easy" on repeat like 18 times straight
Avatar 7:28pm spidermank:

whatever it takes Cliff its worth it, theres some semi decent budget stuff out there you can make work-- good luck man ,scratchin and spinning the decks is so satisfying.
Tommy KD is next on my purchase list. Yaaay Billy feckin Jammin it bigstyley
Avatar 7:29pm Billy Jam:

A short time before passed back in 2009 I interviewed an older gent who lived in Oakland named Mr. Parker - On this show back on April 18, 2014 (after accessing the audio file) I edited it and played it back here. I then gave a copy to Mr Parker's widow who really appreciated it as she did not have any recordings of her late husband. This past Sunday I interviewed Mrs Parker in which she mentions that WFMU recording as well as her life and her late husband whom she "misses everyday" - That is her on top of playlist and interview is coming up in a bit here……..
Avatar 7:30pm spidermank:

remember it well Billy , so moving
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:30pm Cliff:

I remember that show, Billy! God Bless that man, he had some good stories
Avatar 7:32pm kimzilla:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:32pm Cliff:

They both had some tough times

Much love Mrs. Parker <3

Avatar 7:34pm Billy Jam:

The 7 year anniversary of Mr Parker's passing was few weeks ago….Mrs. Parker will be celebrating her 80th birthday shortly - A victim of cancer, she told me that she had always expected her husband to outlive her, not the other way around - Nice lady!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:35pm Mister Dobalina:

The wheels of mechanized steel, are sounding good tonight!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:36pm Cliff:

Stay strong Mrs. Parker <3

Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:53pm Cliff:

Avatar 7:54pm Billy Jam:
