    I hadn't thought about it before but I've got a potential contact on this, I'll follow up tomorrow and see what I can find out.

    This is a genius idea - despite the "Westwood -isms" during his broadcasts you are talking about a historical goldmine of hip hop music.
    I've got at least 2 large storage boxes of tapes that need digitizing.
    A few from LWR a couple from Kiss, the rest from capital/Radio 1.

    Does anyone else have stuff from LWR - there were shows where he played tapes of RUN DMC freestyling after hours at the People's club in Paddington as well as tapes from the Zulu Nation sessions in NY.... at the time 82 - 84ish I owned about ten blank cassettes in total and had to borrow my dads deck to tape anything.
    If anyone has these and could upload - pure gold...if I can get a working tape deck i'll try and post some stuff but it won't be for a little while...

    some of the guest mixes too, MK's was particularly good (Beatnuts etc), Diamond J etc, I think I have 4 on one cassette but from different shows and no dates unfortunately

    Went through one box yesterday and got another few to go through

    Cheers fella, Flavor beyond flavor et cetera.

    Think i'll get to that in a few weeks time when weve got a heftier body of work as it were, but yeh, handy to have to hand. Cheers for the list dude, this is real heavy, much appreciated, Static Hiss had a few gems for sure, and yourself, obvs has been blessin us for a minute.

    @JAMO, exactly what im sayin, the names of Finesse and Large Pro on Westwood are a rarity so thanks for that, much appreciated fella.

    Top work Mr Lawson, never even knew G Rap did a Live to London, was that at Dingwalls? Oh, and I found a tape [2 actually] of Aaliyah being interviewed by ole Timmy, the same night Riz & Sizzahandz did that guest mix. Ive added it on, it was Oct 96

    @whosaidjazz, Like WHOAH. Any info is more info, so its all gravy in the navy, top idea though.

    @matskank - No doubt M. Dig em out, or fire them this way, not a problem. I need to dig out a Head Cleaner !

    RE: LWR shows, only a handful myself, but we'll talk more soon im sure. I know Drew/ Dan over at Fatlace blessed us with an LWR tape a while back, ye might wanna check there too.

    Regarding that Peoples Club jam, I'd say that full show would probably be my holy grail. It was 5 hours long apparently, he played 30 minutes of it on a 1FM show in April 95, but it wouldve been on the 2nd hour of the show, ive only got the first 90 minutes. At least we have dates to follow these things through now. Im sure I have a 5/ 10 minute clip of the Peoples Club session from an LWR segment show, i'll dig it out at the weekend, but be warned, its vintage Hip-Hop foreplay !

    How many times did KRS appear in interview with Westwood? Im sure he showed up 2/ 3 times... Any clues?

    mixcloud links/players might be a good look for streaming audio if you were going to hook up a dedicated site - unlimited space for free, embeddable players, no copyright issues etc

    I was just thinkin about that, but my usual 'long arms and short pockets' mentality says I should just pay for a Soundcloud dedicated to this and get on with it.

    I liked those mixes that people came in the studio to do too yeh, people like MK, DJ Leader One and Billy Biznizz, some tasty material there

    Gotta head off to work now but I found a couple more, I'll add on later.

    14 December 1990 - Kid Frost Interview
    15 Feb 1991 - Tribe in the studio and in interview
    4 Dec 1993 - Melle Mel & Afrika Islam interview & Freestyle
