In it to win it, Big ups to Mr. Billy Jam for steadily repping and feeding hungry ears.
Avatar 7:06pm Billy Jam:

Today's show was inspired by a weekend of watching Naked City movie and TV shows (for first time) and listening to old electro and ATCQ realizing that I need to play more Tribe today
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:07pm JtotheK:

@spidermank I would totally go to Javagina also. I suppose it's never too late to become a sex positive barista. Or just a barista.

Avatar 7:21pm Billy Jam:

sorry to hear that - I caught the FMU BUG last week - but it passed quickly (relatively) - just a bit of throat cough left
Avatar 7:22pm spidermank:

at robyn=lost in translation, - i thought barista you meant barister , totally different meaning - i will shut up and just listen now
  7:25pm robyn:

Oh, ha I thought you just misspelled bastard! It works either way, can't avoid either of 'em, often one and the same

I was so excited to find the Chuck Jackson record that has the drum break for 'Butter'. Haven't listened to it in a while...
Avatar 7:39pm ADA:

Doing good! Missed the show last week due to a wedding in Long Beach... also we moved so still in the process of setting up my studio again, and my records have never been more disorganized :( It's a bit overwhelming but working through it
Avatar 7:41pm Billy Jam:
