Westwood Rap Exchange

This next show is courtesy of my boy David in Essex, UK, who traded me a bunch of old Tim Westwood Capitol Radio shows circa late 80's. He's given me permission to share this one, so all of you out there get blessed with some classic UK hip hop radio. Being from New Jersey, I was obviously never able to tune in and listen to the show live, but listening 20 years later they still sound fresh!

This one is a Marley Marl/Westwood rap exchange from August, 1989. You'll hear a young Tragedy (Intelligent Hoodlum) on the mic dropping some rhymes and also the Fat Boys with a little freestyle session and album promotion.

Stretch & Bobbito Hot 97 (1st Show)

Dirty Waters is all about classic radio, and features many Stretch & Bobbito tapes, so I figured I'd go the extra mile to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Stretch Armstrong Show. For those who don't know, after 5 years of hosting a show on WKCR, Stretch and Bobbito were offered a show on Hot 97. The show began in February, 1996 and was called 'Boogie and the Barber.' What I have here (if I'm correct), is the first three 'Boogie and the Barber' shows, with guests including Large Professor, Jay-Z and Jaz. Stay tuned the following two Sunday nights for the next two.

This is the very first 'Boogie and the Barber' show. It sounds like Stretch and Bobbito were excited/nervous to be on Hot 97 and adjusting to the new studio, but they still came with a show full of treats. Unfortunately the sound isn't all that great in the beginning but it gets better...

Stretch & Bobbito Reunion show

For those who tuned in to WKCR last night, the Stretch and Bobbito
reunion show was a real treat for fans of their show. It was cool to
hear them back on the airwaves once again and listen to them share
the inside stories behind some of the legendary guest appearances/
freestyle sessions and the show's history. I feel honored to get
mentions on such a monumental show, so definitely big shouts

Underground Railroad (DJ Spinna)

Here's DJ Spinna on the Underground Railroad from December, 1999. He uses only records with Spinna production. (Polyrhytmatics, Jigmastas, Big Kwam, Shabaam Sadiq, etc.) You'll hear at the end they're celebrating J-Smooth's birthday, and then DJ AV gets on for some hip hop classics.

The tape opens with a live performance from the Masterdon Committee,
circa early 80's. Not sure if I taped that from somewhere else but it's fresh.
Unfortunately, I only had a 60 minute tape for this one..

Underground Railroad 12-12-1999 (featuring DJ Spinna)

Stretch & Bobbito 12-14-1995 (Camp Lo, Greg Nice)

Here's another classic 1995 Stretch Armstrong Show featuring Camp Lo and Greg Nyce. This is the first 2 hours or so of the show, uncut. The interviews on this show are pretty funny, Bobbito asks Camp Lo 'what's going on?' like 3 or 4 times. Greg Nyce gives a little history of his career and then kicks a freestyle and a beatbox.

CM Famalam Show meets Halftime

This next tape has to be, hands down, one of my all time favorite tapes. This is DJ Eclipse and DJ Riz of the Halftime Show hosting the CM Famalam show and playing nothing but unreleased joints for the entire 4 hour show! There is literally treat after treat on this one.
