diggin through the tape crates

ah the tribulations of an aging hip hop fan.

i live in an 800 square foot apartment. my wife and i just had twins. needless to say, she is not that excited that i have boxes and boxes of cassettes in my closet, under the bed, in the other closet, etc. anyways, i was going through some of my stuff and getting rid of the stuff i didn't need: old mix cds people gave me at cmj events 3 years ago, unopened lil zane cds, 2 extra copies of No Limit Top Dogg...the usual stuff that aging hip hop fans have in their cabinet (i had my brother sell the stuff at cd & game exchange, and i got all of $12 for that, some david gray albums, and miscellaneous other crap).

in the process, i came across some old gems and decided i would post them. this is a tape the dj red alert show on 98.7 Kiss FM that i recorded at my grandmother's house in rockaway in around 1989 or 1990. peter and i used to bring two boomboxes with us when we would go from md to ny, so we could record wbls and kiss simultaneously. unfortunately, i don't know what happened to all of those tapes. he might have some of them. but i will post them every now and again as i have the patience to rip them.
