I just started listening, but I solemnly pledge as my one and only New Year's Resolution, to pick up
any resulting slack should Cheryl ever suddenly disappear from the Open Mike sections!!! I so do sleep more soundly knowing that I have a welcoming forum to deposit my opinions/thoughts in. Thanks!!!

You got it.

These original tracks by iLLvibe are great!! Nice use of live instrumentation alongside the sung vocals.

Yet another great KOTJ episode after a short, well-earned break! Plus, I'm sure that the people
who question all of the reoccurring "Old Man Dad Rock" on KOTJ will be happy to learn that a lot of
great hip hop and urban jams were featured on this show!! Love the Calvin Harris track (the whole
album is great!). As for good Van Morrison singles from the '80s & '90s: "Real Real Gone", "Have I Told
You Lately", "Why Must I Always Explain?", "I'm Not Feeling It Anymore", and "Days Like This" come
immediately to mind. Lastly, good use of the Isley Brother's "That Lady" on that Kendrick Lamar
track! P.S., the last track alone seals this dude as one of the top KOTJ pickers!!!

Sometimes I lose my brain during these live recordings. Have I Told You Lately was absolutely everywhere in the 80s.

Just as long as we all collectively agree to forget that Rod Stewart ever issued his near-insipid
cover version of this gem of a song back in the day, okay?!?

Possibly the best so far. Love the variety, and something for everyone.

Finally getting around to this episode and it's great.

Although I don't necessarily look the part, but I dig iLLvibe's music.

Also, Brian Gerstein is the whitest guy iLLvibe knows without a doubt :)
