Today's show will feature a bunch of interviews (excerpts from them) that I recorded over past several weeks in NYC - some in person, and some over phone - including Del The Funky Homosapien - who will talk about the new Deltron (12 years in the making -only it took him 2 weeks to write) and his cousin Ice Cube and how he helped him get a deal but not automatically....Also in today;s show will be interveiws with DJ Cheese (1986 DMC champ), DJ Premier (Gang Starr), and Stereo Boyz (Detroit, Michigan) - thanks for listening
