Five Track Friday: Recent releases.
Quarantunes: Weekly mix of recent & older releases to help pass the time.
The Latest Playlist: Theme-based mixes.
Year in Review: Re-cap of highlight hip-hop tracks, videos, and performances.
KDVS Archives: Recordings from KDVS 90.3FM in Davis, CA (2013 – 2014)
About the Host
Black Lives Matter. I’m a white guy, and I’m a guest in hip-hop culture. I’ve been listening to hip-hop music almost exclusively for the last 17 years, and found that the vast majority of talented hip-hop artists are unrecognized by mainstream radio. I love beats and I love rhymes, and when I find good ones I want to share. Enjoy!
