What? Not another early 90s radio show post…..




Pretty much the only place on the Halifax radio dial to listen to hip hop in the early 90s was on CKDU. Dj Critical (Buck 65) had the dope show on Tuesday nights, and once a month he and Dj Jorun would set up 4 turntables and just go crazy for a while. This is one of those shows, September 1992.

Dance Appeal was formed in 1991 in support of an application to the CRTC for Canada’s first urban radio station. The bid was actually lost to a country station but the video, which features many Canadian stars of the era from multiple genres, did receive plays on MuchMusic.

The Rap Show (Ottawa) – 1992

Posted: March 12, 2013 by jayosmooth in Uncategorized


Way back in the day I lived in Ottawa for a hot minute. That’s right around when Organized Rhyme first came out, and they also had a weekly rap radio show. I came across a tape today and thought I’d rip it and share it.

They get silly in the middle of this one. No tracklisting cause all rap from this era was dope.
