Hank Love & Half Pint on WNWK (1997)
First outing on OB4ZL for Hank Love and Half Pint's show. These guys were on air around the same time as Stretch and Bobbito but weren't quite as well known so tapes of the show are a bit harder to come by. Nes at Dirty Waters has a little bit more info on them here.
Judging by this 36 minutes clip, they very much repped for the underground. They've got someone called Automatik in the studio for an interview. I'd never heard of him but he seems to be responsible for one of those indie 12"s no one bought when it came out but now commands aan above average price online. That Warren G remix of Redman's 'Pick It Up' at the beginning is nice too.
Good to see RANDOM RAP RADIO back in effect.
