Hip-Hop Has a Birthday? (Know Your History) • Word Is Bond

August 11th, 1973 is considered to be the birth of hip-hop culture. In this edition of Know Your History, we get to the bottom of how that can be.

This was part of Radio Western’s Word Up 2018, the first annual day-long celebration of hip-hop music and culture.

This is Episode 78 of Know Your History and features music by Grandmaster Flash and the Furious 5, an interview with the first hip-hop promoter (it isn’t who you think) and a song by Akala that gets us thinking about how far back this genre of music actually goes.

You can stream or download the clean or explicit version of the show below for free.

Every Show Needs a DJ (WIB Rap Radio) • Word Is Bond

One of the lyrics in a song we played this week says, “Every show needs a DJ” and we couldn’t agree more. That’s why you get two hours of music mixed live by our very own Chase March on the radio every week here on Word is Bond Rap Radio. So please hire a DJ if you are putting on a rap concert. You need one!

Show some love to the DJ. When you are at a show and snapping pictures, make sure to get one of the DJ. If you are an MC, thank the DJ, by name, during your set. Hip-hop started with a DJ. Let’s remember and honour that.

Maybe Too Much (WIB Rap Radio) • Word Is Bond

I know someone who called our college radio station, “Radio Roulette – you never know what you are going to get.” It’s an apt description of what we do at Radio Western.

Last week, I had a listener text in to the station who had been listening to the station for 24 hours straight. She told me that she enjoyed the first part of the show but had to turn the station off when the music got too explicit for her (both in message and language content)

I still feel bad about chasing away a listener. I like to play positive hip-hop but every now and then I play some offensive stuff. It’s the nature of the genre.

Did I go too far this week? Was it too much? What do you think?
