At this moment i listen mostly to old school hip hop radio tapes. It's always nice to browse through your collection, hearing something that you haven't heard for a long time.
But there are some tapes that never bore me and i bookmarked the favorite parts on my mp3 player. I think you can find them all on my blog, but here are those snippets. Especially for those blog visitors who don't find the time to listen to all the uploaded tapes :-)
The World Famous Supreme Team Show (WHBI) are one of kind. One of the things i like best where the live callers. This is a 8.11 minute snippet from june 1982, including a crank caller. http://www.zshare.net/audio/67445586b8e7501e/
Wild Style was the first motion hip hop picture. In this snippet from the Zulu Beat Show on WHBI, Fab 5 Freddy is talking about the movie (april 1983) http://www.zshare.net/audio/674481323d29dff6/
A true mashup from december 1983 as part of a KISS FM Mastermix dance party!!! Tony Humphries is mixing GLOBE and Whiz Kid's Play that beat with Heavy Vibes from the Montana Sextet for more then 5 minutes. Maybe from a technical point of view not a perfect mix but man, this has a jazzy hip hop sound that can't be beat.
A great Christmas 1984 KISS FM Mastermix by DJ Chuck Chillout (7.18 minutes) http://www.zshare.net/audio/6744547458018f78/
And finally: Marley Marl showing his skills on the wheels of steel in a 1985 Mr Magic Rap Attack Show on WLBS (11.06 minutes) http://www.zshare.net/audio/67449353724617ec/
