One of the things I’ve been reading regularly is The Hip-Hop Family Tree over on BoingBoing. It is a fantastic history in comic form of the origins of Hip-Hop, starting in the 70’s, and currently up to the mid-80’s. Well worth the read, and sometimes it turns you on to tracks you forgot existed (like the opening track this week). That put me in the mood that led to the the first half of the show.
The second half features some favorites of both myself and listeners, so enjoy.
