For this, the 93rd episode of The NY Hip Hop Report, we will welcome friend of the show, and sister in alternative media. Tasty Keish, aka TK, is co-owner of Bondfire Radio, an internet radio station which now hosts many distinctly different, entertaining and informational programs, including her own, TK in the AM, a morning show that airs live Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
We wanted to speak to TK in the wake of Angie Martinez's surprising defection from Hot 97 to crosstown rival Power 105.1, as Keish had quite a few thoughts on the subject, particularly in relation to women on the radio and in media in general. We'll talk to her about finding the courage and resources necessary to launch Bondfire Radio, and get the lowdown on MoreBondfire, the return of what was once a long-running monthly performance showcase.
Aside from TK, Manny and Steve will discuss the recent developments in NY hip hop radio, talk about recent and upcoming noteworthy NY-area hip hop events, share a few notable new releases and as always, welcome your calls!
