Stretch Armstrong and Bobbito reunite to celebrate 20th Anniversary of legendary radio show on WKCR 89.9FM NYC [Audio/News]
New York, NY – Legendary DJs Stretch Armstrong and Bobbito have gone a long way since their radio show started 20 years ago on WKCR 89.9FM NYC. To celebrate the 20 year anniversary of starting what The Source magazine in 1998 named “the best Hip-Hop radio show of all-time,” we now have one more chance to adjust our dials to something that will be very special.
This Thursday (technically very early Friday morning) from 1am-5am, tune in to the duo who gave Nas, Jay-Z, Biggie, Wu-Tang, Big Pun, Mobb Deep, Redman and more their very first airplay – when they were all unsigned artists! Not in range to hear on your radio? Stream it on WKCR’s website! You will not want to miss the surprise guests that are going to stop by.
“Bobbito and I are really looking forward to Thursday night. That show was such an amazing ride, and it’s going to be pure fun to relive some of those moments. We hope the listeners will have as much fun as we will!” – Stretch
Need more convincing? Remember the instantly classic 10 minute Big L and Jay-Z freestyle from February 23, 1995?
“How’s this for a rare gem. We’ve all heard the legendary, 7 minute, back and forth freestyle session between L and Hov from the February 23, 1995 episode of the The Stretch Armstrong and Bobbito Show on WKCR. Shit, most of us can probably spit it word for word. But unless you were listening or recording that night, you probably haven’t heard this extended, nearly 10 minute version. Two of the best lyricists of all time. Pay homage” – Nah Right.
Stretch Armstrong and Bobbito reunite to celebrate the 20th anniversary of their legendary radio show on WKCR 89.9FM NYC. The show will be airing live this Thursday night from 1 a.m. to 5 a.m. (technically this would be Friday morning).
