Stretch & Bobbito 1992 (undated)

Undated Stretch & Bobbito show from 1992. Unfortunately the talking breaks were cut out, but the tracklist makes up for it. Really early show, and interesting to hear Stretch's mixing style from back then.

Rocksteady Anniversary from July 1994 in Rocksteady Park on 98th/99th. After some dat issues, Artifacts get into 'Wrong Side' over a different beat, a freestyle on a beat Stretch Armstrong produced, then close it out with 'Do you Wanna Hear it?' Clipped this from a CM Famalam Show.

Future Flavas 5-12-1996 (w/Akinyele)

Future Flavas episode from May 12, 1996. Pete Rock, Marley Marl, Half Pint and crew come through with joints you never heard before (scratching my head on the first track), and Akinyele stops in to promote 'Put it in Your Mouth' and drops a few bars with Pete Rock to close out the show (48:38)

5th Platoon DJ's on WSOU 1999

I'm trying to dig up as much exclusive content as I can find to bring over to my mixcloud and ran across this tape. This was the 5th Platton DJ's on WSOU (Seton hall college radio, East Orange NJ) from April of 1999 on a show called 'over ya head.' Line up features Neil Armstrong, Kuttin Kandi, Daddy Dog and Rholi Rho. The tape closes with 3 or four tracks from an XL show.

Foul Play - Booyah (w/Heltah Skeltah)

Boosting this one again, one of my all time favorite demos. This is Foul Play from Washington, a group that had a deal on Wild Pitch shortly before the label closed. This song 'Booyah' had like three or four different versions, all with Roc on the hook, but this one alone has both Ruc and Roc with verses. Pretty sure this was a Doo Wop promo according to Eclipse.
