January 31, 1991

Remember back when everyone complained about MC Hammer and Vanilla Ice? Ah, those were the days. This early 1991 episode features discussion of the recent American Music Awards with Vanilla Ice winning and PE and Digital Underground’s non-winning nominations.

Peep the surprising custom theme for PRB by Courageous Chief on side B. I don’t remember it at all. We also hear the origin of G’s “Mr. Softee” nickname in an uncomfortably awkward airbreak and a rare unreleased BeFyne song. This may be the only time it ever aired.

This episode’s unanswered question: did G ever get his KRS tape back from Almighty?

(Side A is a hybrid version of the radio recording with some of G’s soundboard recording to fill in the tracks cut from the radio recording. G’s soundboard version of most of Side A is included for completeness sake. Side Z is the closing of a show that seems to be this one based on the music played and the guests in studio; it is possible it may be a different show.)
