Welcome to the first episode of CityFM, a show about New York's local music community, and the sounds of the city. This episode is devoted to "Summer," when the city's music scene comes out to express itself outdoors.
CityFM hosts D-Stroy and Navani Otero talk to DJ Spinna about the city's history of block parties; to the DJs Stormin Norman and Tabu about their park jams — respectively, Harlem's Sundae Sermon and Ft. Greene's Soul Summit; to Eamon Harkin about the Mister Sunday party in Ridgewood; and to Taja Cheek (aka L'Rain), an Asst. Curator at PS1 who leads the curation of the long-running Warm-Up party in Long Island City.
Plus new and classic music from Spinna, Quantic, The Tramps, Marvin Gaye and Tammie Terrell, Eamon Harkin, Shaun Escoffrey, Breakdown Brass, Josh Brouchaussen, Jigmastas, and more.
CityFM is produced for WNYE 91.5 FM by co-sign and Raspberry Jones, and co-produced by the NYC Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment to celebrate New York Music Month.
