DJ Andy Smith Lockdown tape digitising Vol 6 - Ed Lover & Dr Dre 1992 WBLS New York City Hip Hop

Playing tracks by

A Tribe Called Quest, Cypress Hill, Showbiz & Ag, Black Sheep, Gang Starr and more.

Chart positions

This show was 27th in the global rap chart and 76th in the global hip hop chart.

Well we are all on lockdown so I decided to digitise my personal tape cassette collection!

I used to record tapes like these off the radio as often as I could to listen to them for the duration of the week, then do another cassette the following weekend (no 24 hour stations playing what you wanted back then - well not in Portishead - the place). Luckily I never taped over them so have hundreds still.

This is Ed lover & Dr Dre (the New York Dr Dre) on WBLS in New York City rom 1992. I wouldn't have recorded this in NYC (didn't go there until 1995!) so this was probably dubbed off of another tape although I dont recall who from anymore? Its a great mix show highlighting some of the heavy Hip Hop Jams of the time. I kept all the ads in as I think it gives good context!

Anyway, enjoy!
