It’ll be a damn shame if this radio show gets the Fat Beats treatment…
As of Oct 7, 2010 I’ve been informed by Columbia University that after 20 years our beloved radio show will come to an end. In Oct of 1990 two friends Stretch Armstrong and Bobbito Garcia started a radio show that revolutionized how we look at Hip Hop programing. 8 years later, after Stretch left the show, Bobbito continued with Lord Sear what was known then as the CM Famalam radio Program. 2 years after that I joined the show until Bobbito and Lord Sear’s retirement in 2003. From that point on the Squeeze Radio Show has remained a pillar in the Hip Hop community in New York City and has been named the best radio show in NY by Time Out Magazine.
In the past the program introduced NY and the world to Wu-Tang, Nas, Jay-Z, Big L, Fat Joe and more. Since 2003 The Squeeze Radio show has introduced NY and many listeners in the world to Kanye West, Consequence, Lupe Fiasco, Blu, Roc Marciano, Torae, Tanya Morgan and more.
I ask for your help. Lets show C.U. that this show is important to not just to us but to the community in general. If you are an artist that’s been in the show, a listener, a Hip Hop fan or just someone that’s tired of how we are being pushed around and shut down let your voice be heard. Sign the petition, write an email to WKCR get your friends to join you and us.
We are running out of time. As of now we have one show left this thursday night and I believe and hope that with your help we can make sure that that is not the case.
