So today is Friday the 13th of May…….lucky for me as I am alive and well….but damn where did the new year go? I thought we were still at start of year - not almost midday - which reminds me that this is the third last show of the 38 week series with one of those remaining ones being a live remote broadcast of the Primavera Fest in Barcelona with Brian Turner and the FMU traveling crew
Avatar 7:34pm Billy Jam:

there was so much cursing at this session last week :) - it wasn't even planned as a radio segment but then hearing Marz' crazy scratching - also left mic on for the full room vibe
Avatar 7:34pm Marcel M:

Yeah its crazy its Primavera time again...
Avatar 7:36pm Billy Jam:

so the summer season on F M U is around the corner……am trying to decide if I should apply for the (longer, different time on a Friday) slot or stick with the one hour…..or maybe take the summer off to go voluteer with the CA State Parks system…
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:38pm chris:

would miss your show something fierce, Billy Jam! but I also love the state park system here in Cali and know it needs folks like you.... shiiiiiit.... man! do what you gotta do. mad respect, much love.

"Billy Jam and His 3-Hour Program" That has a nice ring to it.
Avatar 7:52pm Billy Jam:

so this was from when I did a 2 hour (Sun 6-8pm) show on (now defunct - boo!) SF radio station KUSF - and just stumbled on this 23 year old show that was a "Dont Gimme no Bammer" weed radio special with other guests too inc. Mello from LA who was down with Redman and Rhythm X who was from Fairfield and down with E40 and Sick WId It

Avatar 7:57pm Slick Goldtooth:

Billy am I tripping or was there a show last year's you played a clip from an interview with someone from RBL Posse
Avatar 7:58pm Billy Jam:

This one was the radio version but other one wasn't :)…It's funny listening back to this radio show since it was FULL of curses….no wonder - following three warnings - I would get kicked off the radio seven months later for playing curses ,,,,that's when I began "Fuck THe BUllshit" pirate radio - not returning to the legal airwaves for five years when in '99 I did "Scratch Attack" on KPFA
Avatar 7:58pm Marcel M:

Epic show. Peace everybody

I'm so late hearing this, but I have to say Billy is just the guy to clear Yosemite and El Capitan from the apple stain of greed
