Rap This!

September 1987
WNYU (89.1 FM)
New York, NY, USA (New York University)

Prime golden era rap radio courtesy of Diablo. P-Fine hosting Rap This! on WNYU from September '87 and the tracklist is just splendid. Certified classics by the likes of BDP, Kane and the Jungle Brothers sit alongside relative obscurities like Vandy C & Bill Blast and Devastator (P-Fine and Livio G's group), plus a Stetsasonic promo over chain snatchers' favourite "Go Stetsa I." Interestingly, P also plays "The Ruler's Back" and says it's "never to be released on vinyl." I remember reading something about Ricky D's debut getting delayed but didn't realise tracks were in circulation a year before it dropped. The live version of "Treat Her Like A Prostitute" also gets an airing.
