NOTE: We'll be paying respect to ASAP Yams on tonight's show as well, and talking about the Jay-Z/Hot 97 purchase rumor. The following was written before all that.
Hip hop radio.
It's a topic we've touched on before, paricularly in regards to New York's iconic Hot 97 and their lack of support for local artists, or the hip hop community at large.
Hot 97 remains at the center of the discussion, in part because of their iconic status, but also in part because of their stubborn insistence that they be considered the "voice" of hip hop, even though much of their actions point in the opposite direction, and are even hurtful to the music and culture that made them what they are.
We'll talk biting the hip hop hand that feeds them, and what might be going on at the station. A flurry of high profile and loyal departtures, new, out-of-town personnel with little to no hip hop radio experience, and a heated on-area airing out of Jay Z by once-prominent Funkmaster Flex has many of us who watch the industry perplexed.
Is Hot 97 on the verge of a complete collapse, format switch, or something else entirely unexpected? Will they ever be more than a typical 2015 rap radio station that plays a forumlaic playlist and doesn't take any responsibility for helping to negatively affect the music and culture that made many of them rich?
Perhaps they'll fall off completely and change to the radio "format of the day," classic hip hop! It's a format that many stations are rushing to change to, but our show host Manny Faces feels it's actually bad for hip hop, and likely to fail.
Feel free to call with your thoughts. Do you listen to Hot 97? What do you think is missing, if anything? Are you an old-school head? Are you excited about the classic format idea?
Tune in and participate. It's NY's hip hop talk radio, and it's all about YOU!

However mean your life is, meet it and live it; do not shun it and call it hard names. It is not so bad as you are. It looks poorest when you are richest. The fault-finder will find faults even in paradise. Love your life, poor as it is. You may perhaps have some pleasant, thrilling, glorious hours, even in a poorhouse. The setting sun is reflected from the windows of the almshouse as brightly as from the rich man's abode; the snow melts before its door as early in the spring. I do not see but a quiet mind may live as contentedly there, and have as cheering thoughts, as in a “sunset and evening star hunching and bending sleeping and slipping virus pneumonia coughing and crying hope in the small things heaven looks brighter aching and falling earth is still darkness slip into sleeping sleepings of death dead now and buried cold now and crumbling dust now and hope-filled heaven is hope (and loneliness lingers in those left behind)”
