DJ Seb & DJ Fever – Radio One Rap Show – Jan 1997

This tape dates back to Jan 1997, when Westwood used to regularly have guest DJ’s up to BBC Radio One and features two dj sets – DJ Fever – from my home town of Nottingham and was formerly down with OutDaVille and DJ Seb, who I know nothing at all about! DJ Seb, if you are out there, let us know a little something about yourself!

DJ Supreme – The Basement Show (1xtra) 10-08-2003

I have already put this up on the HeroesOfUKHipHop forum, but as this is my blog I’m gonna stick it up here too.

This one isn’t from a dusty tape, but a DAB recording from BBC Radio 1Xtra, back in 2003 when (I thought) it was actually worth listening to. Unfortunately the recording stops before the last couple of tunes, but as this seems to be the only recording around (let me know if you have the full show), this is better than nothing.
