Starting it off celebrating J Dilla Day with a handful of Dilla tracks ahead of his birthday tomorrow. Then some hip hop up through funk to house.

After that, seeing as it’s Black History Month, I thought I’d play a bit of an old school test. Like, true old school from the early eighties. I mentioned the track that preceded the Roxanne Shante/UTFO song, ie Roxanne, Roxanne. If you haven’t listened to it in a while, well… there’s no time like the present.

That’s the track that inspired Shante’s blistering comeback. That comeback is all the crazier when you consider that Shante was barely 16 when she recorded it. I didn’t have very good time management skills this week, it would have been great to have a bit more time to let the old school tracks breathe. I mentioned about their length at somepoint at the end of the show… Well, here’s that Mr Magic track in all it’s 9 minute glory.
