First time Dutch radio listeners where introduced to scratching? Adventures Of Grandmaster Flash On The Wheels Of Steel on Dutch Radio, 1981-06-18

This is a snippet from Ferry Maat's Soul Show.
He opens his show (dated the 18th of june 1981) with my all time favorite record: the adventures of grandmaster flash on the wheels of steel. After 4.16 the 12inch stops but the last part is played at the end of the show.
This could very well be the first time that Dutch radio listeners where introduced to scratching!!!
I have combined both snippets to 1 mp3.

For the non-dutch visitors of this blog i will translate some lines.
3:38: don't think that there is something wrong with the turntable, this is the way it suppose to sound. At the end of the show i will play some more.
4.36: there he goes again. That strange track from Grandmaster Flash.

Great source for free viewable hip hop articles and books

Ok, this post is not about tapes, it's about books. But if you want to know everything about (old school) hip hop, then i maybe have a great source for you.

Google books contains, as some of you may know, many books and other publications. It has both search and preview options. One feature is IMO very exiting: you can filter your search results and f.e. only look for "full view only". You can even choose for filtering on a combination of "full view only" and 'books'. Even when you look at books with limited preview options, you still can read lots of interesting pages and look at many, many great photo's.

For those who don't know Google Books and/or are not familiar with advanced search options, i made some example queries.

Free viewable publications about hip hop that where published in the 80's:"hip+hop"&as_brr=1

the book 'Graffiti' By Sandrine Pereira (free viewable!): ... q=&f=false

books with 'hip hop' in the title that can be previewed: ... p&as_brr=3
