"I Got A Twenty-Bar Poem In A Battle Rap..."

I forgot to dedicate today's Louis Prima song to The Roncy Boys,
who played at Villains Beastro last night (Boxing Day).
Hilarious good fun.  Roncy Boys rule OK!

To hear this show, you just gotta click here for direct access to the CJAM archive. Don't be shy!
(However, it's nearly 3 full minutes before the show which precedes The Snark gets outta my way!)
The link is live for about 4-6 weeks from the original broadcast date.


  1. Damn right Party Up....Dirty Minds think alike!

  2. Good to hear "MessageII" again! Though I get it confused with Scorpio...I guess I need to hear them back to back. Is there a musical connection?

    According to this interview with Doug Wimbish (http://www.thafoundation.com/dwimbish.htm), Scorpio was done entirely by a guy named Reggie Griffin. But that couldn't be the case for "Survival", cuz of the great bassline...right?

  3. Who ever would have thought a Deja Voodoo cover would ever exist? Well done
