Between my iPod, MacBook, car stereo and MTV jams, I don’t listen to the radio much these days. Not to mention the two corporate urban radio station in Detroit play the same eight songs like it was going out of style.
College radio, however, is some pretty cool shit. I once had a show , but I got too irritated with editing out the “dirty words” in rap so i stuck with playing Interpol and Pinback Records.
For the past five years, The Zone Radio on 89.3 WHFR.FM (myspace.com/thezoneradio) has been the official spot for underground hip-hop. Hosted by Origix and DC every Saturday from 8 p.m. to midnight, Zone is like the SNL of rap radio: guests, performances and airwaves flowing with that Midwest magic. How do they do it? “We did it by having a vision that the music we listen to could be heard by others, “Origix says. “We went to school, took the proper courses to get into radio”. Once we got an opportunity to do a show we just started letting heads know we support local hip-hop, hit the streets and hip-hop spots hard with flyers. we never really knew that five years from now we would have built what we have so far in the hip-hop community.” Origix and DC Have had tons of artists you read about in this very column. How ’bout that ?
Celebrate their Fifth Anniversary at The Bullfrog on April 19 with special guests Buff 1,Paradime, Bareda, Rhyme Asylum and many more.
