WNYU Rap This!: Overlooked But Essential...
When reminscing about mid and late 80's NYC rap radio, you tend to hear the names Red Alert, Marley Marl, Chuck Chillout, Mister Magic and Awesome Two. But what about P-Fine and Lydvio G, of WNYU's Rap This!?! Their show, which ran from '85 to '88, bridged that awkward gap between the old school and the new, having hosted guests like Jeckyl & Hyde, UTFO, Spoonie G, T-La Rock, The B-Boys, Grandmaster Flash, as well as Ultramagnetic, Just-Ice, LL Cool J, Public Enemy, BDP and Marley Marl & MC Shan. P-Fine, incidentally, was immortalized by getting dissed on the intro to BDP's "I'm Still #1" (P-Fine ain't down with us") because he aired a tape of a song that dissed BDP.
In this show, which aired in April of 1987, Schooly D talks about how he got his start, making records and Spoonie G.
