This is the last part of the February 13, 1992 episode. I haven't come across the first part of the show yet. Lots of music was cut, but the airbreaks are super solid. It's interesting to hear the debut of Kris Kross' "Jump" before it blew up. Side ? Ads/Airbreak into G's set Jump... Kris Kross For the Money... True Mathematics (cut) Tennessee...

This episode was one of the few I recorded on a high bias cassette. On side A, G mentions a crazy show happening on Thanksgiving (though G says Friday the 23rd) at the Civic Center in Philly that will feature Blvd. Mosse, Kool G Rap & DJ Polo, Masta Ace, Three Times Dope (whose new track Eazy disses), K-Solo, YZ, The Jaz, Cool C, and Intelligent Hoodlum. Some rare tracks are played, including FOA Posse, the Danger Zone Mobb Sqwad (TL and DJ Too Tuff from the Tuff Crew), and Smooth Law J....

It's Eazy M's 21st birthday (which is likely April 20th, making this Thursday April 19th). At the start of side B, G begs Eazy to let him have a regular set. At this point he was still primarily answering phones and co-hosting, but not spinning. MC Smooth joins the crew in the studio. The show finishes off with a dope set from Eazy M with some nice blends and cuts. Side A Holy Intellect... Poor Righteous Teachers Strictly for the Ladies (Radio)...

Freshly bestowed with their new high-wattage tower (for some reason, I still got heavy static!), G and Eazy are amped to debut the new Fu-Schnickens single “Ring the Alarm” a full month before it hit the stores. The tower was originally announced for September 1st, but this episode is from October 17th (based on the concert calendar reading on side B), so I guess they had to wait a while for it.

This is one tape I was glad to save - it was recorded over an old bootleg BDP tape (complete with crookedly stamped ink and in-tact recording tabs) that was in rough shape. The tape was warbly and actually locked up, almost getting eaten numerous times during digitization. It required some re-recording and a little audio editing to get a clean rip. Thankfully, it's safe now, which is a good thing because this one of the last episodes of Raw Deal from 1993 (the show went off the air in March)....

G and Kam kick the night off with "slack" Eazy on the way, bringing the 1200s and mixer with him. Unfortunately, I cut a lot of tracks out of this episode, particularly on side A. However, there are still some great moments and tracks on this tape, including Kam and G doing their Marley Marl impression before dissing Big Daddy Kane. They also discuss Zulu's newly stretched '72 Gremlin. Lots of hype surrounding the new Ultramagnetic album on the way. Super rare track by the Money Fresh...

This Thursday Night Live lineup appeared on my  Best of WPRB tape  and when I posted it back in 2009, Fine commented that “This joint is hilarious!

This may be the first special edition 11-hour episode that the Raw Deal crew did (though they did do a six hour New Year's Eve show at one point). Celebrating their five-year anniversary, this special episode started at 1pm, but my tape starts at about 2:15pm. If my school day ended right about 2, I likely got home, came straight upstairs, and hit record. At the end of the 2:15pm side, a funny moment occurs when they play Busy Bee's "Suicide" and refer to him as "one of the...

This is only the final ten minutes of an episode but it packs a lot in. It starts right off with an excellent Thursday Night Live featuring Excalibur (I think), a fast-rap emcee who sounds an awful lot like Malik from one of my favorite white labels of all-time, " Dial M for Murder ." Malik was from Camden, so it's very possible that is indeed him. Then, Camden's own Krown Rulers (now briefly known as XLG) kick the ball with a nice taste of what they're up to at the time.

This one comes a week after Thanksgiving 1990 and kicks off with an incredible set.  Marquis from the Too Kool Posse joins G, Tone, Dre, and Eazy M in the studio.  Tone declares “Gasface Refill” “booty.”  Gee, I can’t imagine why (he and Serch had some serious beef back then).  There’s also a great PRT drop I don’t remember hearing too often where they say, “When we’re not tied up in Tony D’s basement with strands of spaghetti, we’re listening to WPRB, Princeton.”...

This one's from April 9, 1992. Eazy M's out and G holds it down. This episode pairs well with an earlier one from January 23rd, where Mike Elliot first discusses his upcoming book that's released the day after this episode. The episode also features a demo from a kid-group from Trenton called Youth of Noble Birth (they apparently also have a track called "Living in the Projects," which is not in this first part of the show).

This show from the post-Easy M era features G and DJ Kam, who’s back after a mysterious “fall” (Jay-Ski subbed for him the previous week). This is one of the rare unlabeled tapes that was easy to identify since G referred to a show “this coming Saturday October 24th”. The show featured a premiere of Ice Cube’s “Wicked” a week before the single hit stores and a bunch of great remixes. Super solid show all around and I didn’t cut anything from the show except ads.

One of the rare episodes where G ("Mr. Softee!!!") isn't in the studio until the very end of the show. During the first two airbreaks, Tone discusses getting the gas face after dissing Serch on stage. Tone shows a good sense of humor about it all by playing "Gas Face" after one of his own tracks (a love song I completely forgot about).

This show's from either August 1st or 8th because of references to a show "this month" on "Saturday the 17th" (and August 15th is already accounted for). Side A...

Poor Righteous Teachers are in the house for a great mini-interview. This was the debut of the "Midnight Croon" version of "Rock Dis Funky Joint," which I completely geeked out for.

This tape starts at about 9:35pm. G spends much of the show busting on Eazy's clothes ("Yo, Eazy. Your clothes have expired. They need Super Action Tide" and "The collar on your shirt looks like a horse wore it") and uses it as a set-up for promoting BBC (right around the corner from Club Zero!) in Philly. Things get really good starting with the second airbreak on side B and through side C with lots of great aggressive, upbeat tracks, cuts, and some good interview segments...

Apparently, I recorded over the first side of my  March 8, 1990 episode  with the last 40 minutes or so of a show I’m dating at June 7, 1990 (based on a reference to upcoming events that Candy Cane makes during one of the breaks). The week after this, the crew moved to Friday night at 10pm for the summer because Eazy M had a summer job that required the switch. They were on Fridays through (I believe) the third week in September 1990. Some good airbreaks here, with lots of jokes and Tone...

This was one of those rarer Friday night episodes, placing it in August or September 1990. TL from Tuff Crew possibly coming up to the studio later in the episode.

This is the end of a show from March 28, 1991 (according to the tape label). Fresh J is hosting the episode alongside G.

This is the tail end of the episode with Jay-Ski and Eazy ready to roll out of the studio. G says he's sticking around for a while to wait for Money Moses and Lamar, who show up one break later to discuss goings-on in hip-hop including Eazy-E showing up in New York with bodyguards and Tim Dog calling him out, Delicious Vinyl's signing of "a new group called The Pharcyde," and G's upcoming trip to Stretch & Bobbito's show. This is one of those good "time capsule"...
