I am so thankful for all the comments you provide.
Avatar 7:35pm Billy Jam:

@Barbara - I'll check it out later and maybe play next week if I like it - don't really take requests due to such things as FCC regulations - have to pre-screen/edit all music before airing - takes time -

my goal with this show is to disprove that common misconception that new hip-hop sucks. It doesn't and has never been better - u just gotta dig - or allow me to dig for you to find the (subjective) best of the crop of new shit
