Sometime in 1993, soon after the Raw Deal exodus. Cats were clearly having shout-out shock moving from late Wednesday to Thursday night. As they say, “Trenton Do Be Wrecking Shop” in this installment.

Show – 1993-ish
Up in the spot…a whole lot of people (J…, KJ, Ace, Bize (on the phone), D, Care Bear, Corey Blunt, Seyfu) . Ace “kicks the floor from up under the building” on a freestyle with Seyfu…and pretty much just Seyfu as usual. Why do writers think they can MC? 🙂
I’m late to the memorial party but in case you missed it…”Mr. Spaces and Places/Rock Creek Park” himself moved on about 3 weeks ago to that eternal jazz combo on the other side. In 1996/97 the Poisoned Ivy crew had the pleasure to get down with him on a jazz hip hop project. How crazy is it that while rummaging through my drawers (desk drawer you wierdos!), I stumble upon the original demo tape…unplayed, for a good 16 or 17 years. Better than saying something drippy and cliche I figured I’d treat you to a real honest to goodness Lost Tape, a gem, a piece of history… The Donald Byrd Hip Hop Reflections Project. The beginning is seriously moving to say the least. I left it uncut but it’s really 3 or 4 distinct pieces but it flows nicely as a whole.
It was an honor to have pressed record for that brother a time or two.

Show – October 29, 1992
J…, ESV, and even G was in the spot. I’m soooo glad Ronnie taped this one because this is nothing but end-to-end classics. I always say that this site/blog is a historical record and this show truly lives up to that claim. Technical issues and all…they just don’t do radio like this anymore…RIP 98.7 KISS NYC.
Part 1 – Classics, classics everywhere
Part 2 – G swings by with The Raw Deal flavs and more classics…Courageous Chief even! it flips to the next night’s Raw Deal (with G and DJ Kam) show at the 25 min mark. Gotta love radio tapes.
I could write all day but it’s best to just listen…2 hours of classics:

Show – some Wednesday night in 1992
Going way back to the early dual-personality hiphop/house format, here’s a little house-infused show. J and ESV carry the hosting duties. D and Sel on the turntables. Good stuff…refreshing even. Ahhhh.
