Working on a radio-mix-putting-up-backlog and holy shit. It’s a recent WVFS Underground Railroad mix. Ain’t had one of those in a looooooooooooooong time, so when I actually remembered to hit record before I started beating up these Audio Technicas (stop laughing – that’s really what I mix on at V89) I figured I’d actually go to the next step, and share it with y’all. Let me know what you think.
It’s been ages since I tossed a WVFS mix up here, so I figured I’d take care of that little issue by now only upping this week’s mix, but the entire show! The reason? A whole first hour of UK Hiphop, centered around the appearance of my homie Insane Macbeth for a dope phone interview direct from London. As well as that, the usual great music in the mix broken up by disses to the entire city of Chicago, studio vomiting, and much hilarity at the plight of the Miami Hurricanes. (I see you Big Lo.)
Slightly out of sequence (the Blazin’ mixes right below are newer) but I’m sure you’ll forgive me. Here’s the last episode of lunacy from WVFS. Moi on the mix, with Jay-C and the Reverend Slickgrease ably assisting on the talking tip.

The Underground Railroad, live on WVFS 89.7 (01/08/11)
Why the Kobe pic? Well, about halfway through this mix I dropped the legendary 5 mic-classic “K.O.B.E.” by Mr Bryant, which features Tyra Banks on the hook. This being the Underground Railroad, and all, its important to let the listeners hear what a runaway train crashing into the buffers actually sounds like.
Back in the saddle at V89 after a few weeks of laziness, with an hour long mix of mostly new music. Proper. If you’re an artist, and have music that you think I need to play – drop a comment here, or hit me on twitter (@AtotheL)
Last Saturday, I held down the UGR show for a full 3 hours, holding everyone else in the studio hostage to whatever the hell I felt like playing. For the first couple of hours I broke out a ton of relatively new joints, before riding the 3rd hour out with the classics, quickfire style.
We all I had a blast. Didn’t we Jay-C?
After a couple of weeks where
wack guest DJs came through to spin, it was my turn to get back into the mix over on V89’s Underground Railroad. Things went fairly smoothly, and school was definitely in session. Catch me every Saturday from 5pm-8pm EST on this station holding down all things Hiphop with Jay-C, Isreal, E&J, Talia, and the Reverend Slickgrease. Um… yeah.
After 2 and a half weeks off due to an unexpected and unwanted trip back to Norn Iron, I made my return back to both V89 and Blazin’ this past weekend, and ended up running a 2 hour set at both stations. Thanks again to everyone who called me, texted me, hit me on Twitter or Facebook, or dropped me an email – I appreciate all the positive messages from everyone during my time away from home.
