Street Beat

1985
WUSL (98.9 FM)
Philadelphia, PA, USA

A 24-minute Roxanne mix that aired on Power 99 (WUSL) in Philadelphia. Excellent for its simplicity -- from the basic scratches over the dub version of Sparky D's "Sparky's Turn (Roxanne You're Through)," to the heavily echoed Lady B "oh my goodness!" at the end of "The Real Roxanne," to the dope electro-tinged "Do the Roxanne (Dance)" by Dr. Rocx & Co.. It closes out with a super-rare live Disco C Roxanne rhyme over Sparky D's instrumental.
