Vintage Episode of the Street Beat Radio Show [Birthplace of The Source]


To compliment the interview with Jonathan Shecter, here’s a classic episode of Shecky Green (aka The Sultan of Rap) and David Mays (aka Go-Go Dave) old radio show, which started The Source newsletter, on 95.3FM WHRB. Featuring Almighty R.S.O.‘s DJ Deff Jeff. Thanks to DJ 7L for passing this on.

The source WAS tight at first though

Rap Pages and Vibe were hella corny compared to source until the source went shitty

Vintage early source was really the only good Rap magazine that ever came out IMO

this is great! the jon shector source report on westwood used to be proper. I remember large pro talking about certain producers stealing his beat disks and whether they staged it for live radio or not, LP n Shector said they were talking on air live from a phone booth during a snow blizzard. (sounded like it too) Offered a nice cinematic touch to a NY-London rap report in the early 90’s. As banal as it may sound now, pre-internet days, shit like that felt for a lil rap head felt exclusive.
