In keeping with the theme of this show for the 2014 Marathon - all calendar year long I will be celebrating my 30 years (1984 - 2014) in radio with lots of throwback tracks (snippets of air checks from bygone era radio shows) - with today's including some classic call-in raps on KALX from October 1990 with my mainman/cohost G-Spot (who these days is on KPFK and KPFA)….plus some other lost/forgotten rap gems from my deep radio air check archives

@ Owlex - agree - love the static of call-ins and old cassettes
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:06pm Owlex:

We need rap call ins on FMU
  7:07pm ALF of Hip Hop Slam:

I went through a travel nightmare on my way there. Skratchpad was cool! Overall, I had a decent time.
Avatar 7:08pm Billy Jam:

This time for me in radio was so great - hip-hop had not gone commercial fully and people were fiending for it and down to do call ins - we would do non stop 2 hours of call-ins and never run out…I did try call in raps on WFMU before -f about five or six years ago - but had no success
  7:09pm Eons One:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:10pm Owlex:

Billy, that was an excellent time capsule. Nothing better than that initial spark when creativity was more innocent.
Avatar 7:20pm Billy Jam:

at JakeGould - glad u like.. fully agree bout hip-hop then vs now - exciting and new and fresh and on a smaller scale -like everyone knew everything about all hip-hop - now it is too big to follow it all….
