This is one of DJ Chris Nathan's (active on Eclipse from 1990-present) first shows ever. At the time the show had a bit of a "quiet storm" format, on top of that in this region in 1990 people were still very opposed to hip-hop so it had to be kept under the radar. You'll hear Chris start to play some rap after about 30 minutes.It's a great time capsule into what was going on at the time and it marks the change of the guard with DJ Chris Nathan being introduced who would eventually take over the show for the next 28 years.
Starting in Colorado in 1978 as "an alternative black radio show," The Eclipse Show aired the earliest hip-hop records alongside funk and soul before eventually morphing into an all hip-hop show. The Eclipse Show is still on community radio KGNU, celebrating its 40th anniversary in 2018 making it one of the (and possibly the) longest continually running hip-hop radio shows in the world.
