Rock Steady Crew at Danceteria, 1982

It's a bit strange to listen to a tape where the Rock Steady performs. But still, you can hear (and feel) hip hop history on this snippet when Frosty Freeze, Crazy Legs, Take One and Ken Swift are asked to come to the stage. It's part of a tape where they perform with Kevie Kev, Whipper Whip and D.J. Theodore in Danceteria, 1982.

For Rock Steady fans who want to obtain the whole tape, contact Troy:

Tim Westwood on LWR radio, 1984

An early Westwood tape. Shared some years ago on def-momentum but too bad, that website is no longer online. Nice show with lots of old school classics (don't let the hick up in the first few seconds scare you off)

BTW, I'm experimenting with new tools to share files. Zshare was my favorite because with 1 click you could listen to the mp3 file, but the type of ads become more and more annyoing. Multiupload makes it possible to share files by more then 1 website but it takes a long time to upload.
This time i use fairtilizer. Let me know what you think about it.

NYC Spinmasters and Afrika Islam KDAY 1580 mix

Another hard to find KDAY mix. This time from the NYC Spinmasters and Afrika Islam. It was shared by Blinddog. He has more tapes, waiting to be digitalized, so maybe one day more will follow.
There is some background noice from another radio station, but still: a great catch!

Any blog visitor who has KDAY hip hop mix from the 80's to share: please drop me an email!
