Howard Kremer’s Hip Hop Radio Tape: 25th Anniversary Special Featuring Jensen Karp

On June 6th, 1987 comedian/musician Howard Kremer made a radio tape.

On June 6th, 2012 Howard and friend/living hip-hop encyclopedia Jensen Karp (AKA Hot Karl) rediscovered the tape. Join them as they explore the early years of hip-hop on this Feral Audio Podcast Special.

Now sit back and enjoy a treasure trove of audio from America’s first hip-hop program. Six hours a week New York radio stations WBLS and KISS broadcast the birth of hip-hop, straight from its birthplace. Their frequencies traveling through the night air to the warm transistors and boom boxes of a then teenaged Howard Kremer. This innovative new style of music completely informed the rest of Howard’s life, and forever changed his and countless others’ taste in music.
