Motor/Mouth is a bi-weekly series featuring WFMU staff and their rides.
This week we meet Billy Jam of Put The Needle On The Record, Fridays, 3 - 6 PM.:
Favorite thing about it: Reliability, predictable low-cost (compared to car), and fact it runs 24/7, and that it forces you to not be lazy (unlike having a car at your constant disposal).
Least favorite thing about it: It can't fit a hundred people in it.
Rate your satisfaction level from 1 – 10: 8.
What is your dream form of transportation? That "beam me up" travel transporter thing they have on Star Trek.
Anything else you’d like to mention: Carrying records on public transit (as I do now on WFMU taking MTA & PATH) versus previously always having a car (in Cali at the radio stations I DJ'ed on) ultimately changes the nature of one's radio show since records are too damn heavy to lug around on public transit.
