PrintThis is a beautiful snapshot of Rap & Hip-Hop life in London during the Golden Era of Spring 1988, it features Simon Harris in conversation in the studio, and in the mix. Simon had been to Groove Records ‘The other day’ picking up Top Billin, the Lyte as a Rock album, and the BDP By All Means LP. SOOOO many iconic tracks get played for the first time.

Dave Pearce Fresh Start to the Week - 11 April 1988 [REMASTERED]Dave Pearce had so much influence on Rap radio during this period, and it’s so obvious to understand why when listening to this.  HUGE shouts and respect as ever to Justin Winks who pressed the play and record button [in OXFORD!] when taping this show.

NB: dave mentions Miami at the start of Jazzy Jay, he’s talking about the Run DMC show at Disney World – 20 May 1988 which was featured on the first RandomRapRadio compilation this year.

There is also a segment of a Silver Bullet session from the year before Bring Forth the Guillotine [The prize from winning the Rapline competition the week before]. It opens with the line ‘Lyrics that explode like a hot can of beans, when I hit the dancefloor, gonna make ya feet steam’…what more can I say ?
