P Fine - Rap This on WNYU (Sept 1987)

Prime golden era rap radio courtesy of Diablo. P Fine hosting Rap This on WNYU from September '87 and the tracklist is just splendid. Certified classics by the likes of BDP, Kane and the Jungle Brothers sit alongside relative obscurities like Vandy C & Bill Blast and Devastator (P Fine and Livio G's group), plus a Stetsasonic promo over chain snatchers' favourite Go Stetsa I. Interestingly, P also plays The Rulers Back and says it's "never to be released on vinyl". I remember reading something about Ricky D's debut getting delayed but didn't realise tracks were in circulation a year before it dropped. The live version of Treat Her Like A Prostitute also gets an airing. If anyone has a bit more info on the back story or chronology of these songs drop some knowledge in the comment section.

  1. P-Fine + Lyvio G = Rap This! One of the best Hip-Hop shows ever. I have most of Lyvio G's mixes.Club 89 was also a great show.
