I think that Stretch Armstrong and Bobbito Garcia’s WKCR radio show that spanned from 1990 to 1998 is unequivocally the best radio show of all time. Now that’s saying a lot and it’s rivaled by a lot of greats but what makes their show the best to me is how rare and uncut everything was. The show was on college radio so there wasn’t a corporate agenda to keep the new MC Hammer single in rotation. They could play what they wanted and they brought up so many different legends. The show’s freestyles are legendary, just look up some on YouTube. They’re the radio kings of breaking artists and it became a place where people came to just to find out who to check out next.
They started a Kickstarter this year to fund a documentary film on the show and very easily, the film was funded and now they’re preparing to release it. Peep the trailer above. It’ll be available to purchase October 22.
