Jeff Young – National Fresh 28.12.90 (last ever show)

Jeff Young, UK hip hop radios forgotten man. If you didn’t live in the capital or near a decent pirate, you were stuck with BBC Radio 1. Before Pete Tong dominated Friday nights on R1, Jeff kicked the doors in with his Big Beat show, of which the last hour was National Fresh. I was introduced to so many dope tunes by Jeffs dulcet tones and this is sadly Jeffs last show on Radio 1.

Beats, Rhymes and basslines….

Mark Goodiers Evening Session – DJs Take Control! – BBC Radio One

Don’t worry, good old Mark G is NOT getting funky on the wheels here….this was a recording live from the Middlesborough Arena, featuring the following:

– Kommision
– Carl Cox
– Utah Saints (I know, I didn’t choose them)
– SL2
– Altern 8

I think Frankie Knuckles was also on the show, but the tape didn’t last that long.
