NEW RANDOM BATCH OF VINTAGE 1990s RADIO TAPE RIPS


Time for more trainspotter delights. The following are a bunch of recordings from various points in the 90s, (plus a couple from the 80s,) covering mainly Pete Tong and Tim Westwood shows on Capital Radio and early days on Radio 1, but with a few other oddities thrown in. Some of these have appeared on-line before, some are brand new. Either way, take your pick, and enjoy a nostalgic trip back to better days!

AUTHENTIC ’96 FLAVAS FROM THE SWING SHIFT, GALAXY 101

A recent forage through the archives produced the following two recordings from the first year of my Swing Shift radio show on Bristol’s Galaxy 101. These two are from 1996, and highly representative of the stunningly good R&B and hip hop that was still around that year. (They also stand as a sobering testament to all the soulless garbage that’s now being put out under those banners!)

Links have been removed, so all trainspotters can try their hand at identifying the tuneage. As the late Frankie Crocker used to say, ‘listen and enjoy’!

CLASSIC DJ LYNX MIX CUT-UPS, GALAXY 101, 1996

I NEVER get tired of hearing this. In all my years of doing radio, this represents my very favourite on-air moments of all. DJ Lynx of the 3PM crew cuts up Camp Lo’s ‘Luchini’ and RZA’s take on the ‘Incredible Hulk’ theme while MCs Krissy Kriss and Kelz spit spontaneous freestyles all the way live. Everything real radio should be, and pure goosebumps nostalgia all the way!
