Radio Raheem 2

Post categories:

Mistajam | 22:14 UK time, Saturday, 26 August 2006

Some people have asked me why do I call the posts where I reference what's been happening on my radio shows Radio Raheem. Well, Spike Lee's classic film "Do The Right Thing" (my second favourite film of all time behind Eddie Murphy and Dan Aykroyd's "Trading Places" - yes, I'm an 80's baby!) has within it a character called Radio Raheem. I could explain why I've refrenced him, but watch the film and you'll understand. It's only cheap from the 'jungle store' (this is a BBC blog - I'm not giving the shop a proper mention!!)

ANYWAY...
This weekend, 1Xtra had a triple dose of MistaJam.

I have to apologise to all who have listened again to this week's HipHop M1X Show. As the show goes down during the small hours of thursday nite/friday morning, sometimes I get a little Gnarls Barkley (y'know, Crazy) and this week's show was no exception. I don't know whether it was the time or the pre-carnival energy or the vibe of Pharoahe Monch's 'Push' or the 5.35am delirium setting in but I, ahem, sang on air. If anyone wants a guest vocalist on their track, don't holla at me...

The Friday night show was a lot of fun - I got to drop some real Carnival classics from over the years and from the texts and emails we recieved, seems like y'all was feeling it too. Look below for the tracklistings - the tracklistings currently online are from last week's show. Listen again, wanna hear what you think of the show. Holla at me

While DJ Semtex was on the ones and twos for Dizzee Rascal at the Leeds Festival, I was in the hotseat for tonight's Saturday Night Mixtape. Really had fun on this one, the first mix was music chosen by me but then we opened it out to you to choose the tracks I span in the second mix. The response was RIDICULOUS!!! The studio was flooded with texts - too many to get into a 50 minute mix SO on next week's HipHop M1X Show, the hour long mix will be dedicated to fulfilling all those track requests I didn't get round to on the Sat Nite Mixtape. Ok? I've printed off all the texts and emails and will spend the week compiling all your requests - even those obscure ones...PWak in Liverpool, I'm talking to you sir!!!!!!

Right, I'm signing off - about to hit the M1 again, going home to Notts to prepare for Monday night's Official 1Xtra After Carnival Party.. more about that tomorrow.

25th August 2006 - Friday Nite bangers!! I drew for some back in the day classics as it's Bank Holiday weekend (aka Carnival Weekend!!) and gave away the VERY last pair of tickets for the Official 1Xtra After Carnival party in Central London. There will be a post just about that tomorrow...
