In reading some of the comments, a number of you allude to the fact that you possess cassettes of recordings of my radio shows. I'll say it again- part of the incentive behind creating this blog in the first place was to try to find some of the more loyal original listeners from as far back as 1990 and get my hands on shows I am missing. Thus far I have been unable to find anyone who has tapes before '93. So again, if you know of anyone that has any KCR shows on tape,even a few, reach out to me. Even if you have ones from after '93, I would be interested in hearing what you have. There are some rather large gaps in my archive. In many instances, I have the freestyle sessions but not the entire shows. Just off the top of my head, I don't have the show the 1st time Ultra came up; or the show when Large Professor and Percee-P (as well as one of his many cousins) rhymed over Joe Tex "Papa Was Too". That was the time when Extra-P spit his verse from "Live at the Barbecue" and the whole time, live on air, he was sitting down reading them off a piece of paper. See, he JUST WROTE THEM at the studio. Which reminds me- video footage of this show just turned up including Extra-P and Percee rhyming. So ill. Another show that I had on DAT but can't find now is the legendary night that my man Lord Finesse and KRS-ONE (who bizarrely acted like he didn't know me the last time I saw him) were rhyming over beats being played from Finesse's SP-1200 plugged straight into the station's console. Sadly, I do not have a copy of the only appearance Biggie ever made at KCR. For those who remember that show, his demo was pitted against another demo by a group called The Bronx Zoo for the very short-lived demo battle segment (Bobbito's creation). The Bronx Zoo won, Biggie was upset, and Bobbito and I got to see all of our boys thanked prominently on the back of "Ready To Die". Now this kind of thing usually doesn't mean that much to me, but it would have been nice to get props on such a monumental piece of hip-hop history. Which reminds me, to date, Q-Tip still says Bob and I were contacted to be on the cover of "Midnight Marauders" but that call was never made homeboy. Again, that would have been nice, and appropriate, because Bobbito and I truly were the midnight marauders. Out of the thousands of hours we put in, very few took place before midnight.
Note: If you want to reach me personally, don't send me messages in the comments 'cause I'll have no way of replying. Use the email address at the top of the blog. Ok?
