This week we welcomed back both Dynamo-P & Micodin to the program. This was a bittersweet episode as it will be the last time we will have Micodin in the studio for a while as he is relocating back to Philadelphia. That being said we got some good talk in with the duo on many subjects including their latest project, Serious Problems, plus they let us play a brand new track called Ghostwriters from the album. We even somehow tricked DJ Boondocks into grabbing a microphone and talking with everyone during the show at one point this week. Big things! The first hour was all about the music as usual including a lot of new older 207 tracks that have recently been added to the Appleton archives. Next week we have both Ken Bell (The Big Easy) and James Read (Benchmark Multimedia) coming through for the first time and we are excited to welcome them. Download or stream the podcast below and we’ll catch you Wednesday night at 7pm!
Here is the podcast from May 8th featuring local beat smith Cold Legistics. Chris comes through Appleton to talk about his production tactics and to talk about some of the artists he’s currently working with including Shane Reis who was also in the studio with us. Other than that you can expect to hear plenty of local hip hop in this episode including some exclusive Cold Legistics beats. Ap Ap Appleton!
This week we welcomed Wisdom on the show to promote his latest project, Flannabis. Unfortunately we had to cut the show early so you’re only getting an hour and 20 minute dose of the 207. It turns out that was plenty of time to play a few new tracks and hear about all things Wisdom. Shupe also joins us later in the show and we all have some lively discussions about the scene. Download or stream below and tune in next week when we bring local producer Cold Legistics on the program for the first time!
This week we bring you another glimpse into the world of graffiti with special guest LEARN who provides a rare personal look into his history and lifestyle. In addition to the elusive LEARN the studio was packed with other writers including RICH, TURDL, GERV, and EMBER ONE. As always we start the show with a full hour of the latest and greatest Maine Hip Hop and then we go in with LEARN & company in the second hour. A lot of ground was covered in this interview, Portland graffiti history, graffiti etiquette (stop tagging people’s houses!), chase stores, and more. We had a lot of fun and will definitely have to revisit this topic with this crew in the future on the program. For now, stream or download the podcast below and we’ll catch you next Wednesday night!
Posting yet another ridiculously late podcast and for that, we apologize. Here is our show from Wednesday April 17th where we are back from a week off. This week we had some fun in the studio and were joined by DJ Boondocks & MC 22 who hung out with us for the entire show. This show is all about the music, you know the drill, stream or download below and tune in every Weds night from 7 to 9!
Here is the podcast from our last live show which took place on April 3rd. We actually had to end the show early that night but we also started early so you end up with over 2 hours of Maine Hip Hop! We also had J Jack in the building for most of the show and were able to speak with him about the 206 hip hop scene (his home state of Washington). Other than that it’s all about the music so please enjoy streaming or downloading the podcast below!
We are horribly late posting the podcast for last week so we will keep it brief. In addition to playing a gang of Maine Hip Hop to kick off our 101st live podcast we welcomed both Slop & Jay Caron on the show for an interview. We want to apologize in advance for not being able to post a picture of their magnificent beards. Jay has been on the show a couple times with Educated Advocates but this was our first time being able to chat with Slop. The two discuss the project they have been working on together in addition to many other topics. Check out the podcast below and tune in every Wednesday night from 7 to 9!
We made it! To celebrate the occasion of our 100th live show we lined up DJ Boondocks to spin beats for a live cypher and invited a lot of past guests to stop by. The turnout was better than we could have hoped for and we had the following people in the studio with us: Spose, Lady Essence, Shane Reis, Frank The Barber, Case In Point, J Jack, Dynamo-P, God Damn Chan, JJ King, Doc Josh, OD and Boons! Needless to day the cypher went down in a big way for the end of the show. In addition to the cypher, Spose premiered one of his new tracks off the Peter Sparker project called “I’m Starving” and God Damn Chan premiered one of his new beats called “Flexxxin” off his Diamond project. We talked with JJ King about his latest doings and of course Rap Night and got it in with a lot of our guests to celebrate 100 live shows dedicated to Maine Hip Hop, some of our favorite moments, and plenty more. After the show we took the whole operation to Rap Night where DJ Rew blended 207 music all night before the performances kicked off. Thank you Boondocks & Rew for helping us keep it moving for the 100th show and thank you to all our guests and listeners for keeping the movement moving for the 207! See you next week.
This week’s podcast features the one and only Mark Curdo of WCYY coming through to chop it up with us on many different topics. We felt pretty fortunate that Mark agreed to come on the show and it was fun turning the tables and being able to ask him a few questions instead of the other way around. Mark, who started his radio career at Saint Joseph’s College doing a hip hop show, has been a big supporter of all things local, including hip hop, especially on his weekly radio program Spinout which airs for 3 hours every Sunday Night on WCYY. The first hour aims to please your ear buds with some classic 207 hip hop and quite a few brand new tracks and then we go in with Curdo. Episode 99 is in the books! Next week we go live for the 100th time on a Wednesday and if everything goes our way DJ Boondocks will be in the house spinning beats for a 100th podcast celebration cypher! After the show we’re taking our tracks to Rap Night where DJ Rew will be playing Maine Hip Hop all evening before showcases from Ryan Augustus, Doc Joshua, & JJ King. We hope to see you there!
We are back and this week we are happy to bring you yet another glimpse into all things graffiti with our special guest, Turt Mcgirt. We speak with Turdl heavy in the second half of the show after paying respect to some 207 hip hop flavor to start the show off. OD also was in the studio and be on the lookout for the Ryan Augustus lightning rounds that went down with both OD and Turdl. If you can believe it, this is our 98th podcast and you have probably noticed in the past couple weeks we’ve started to countdown to our 100th episode. Our 100th live show will be going down March 20th and not only are we planning a cypher featuring DJ Boondocks providing beats, but after we will also help host Rap Night at the Big Easy. We’ve got DJ Rew lined up to play all Maine Hip Hop at Rap Night before the performances from Doc Joshua, Ryan Augustus, & JJ King. Next week episode 99 is serious business too when we are happy to welcome Mark Curdo to Appleton Radio for the first time.
