Stretch and Bobbito’s Radio That Changed Lives Documentary is a Testament to Their Legacy

Thursday, October 1st, 2015


There’s a scene in Radio That Changed Lives, the new documentary about Stretch Armstrong and Bobbito’s seminal 90′s radio show, where the pair play a Big Pun freestyle for Fat Joe that he hadn’t heard since the night Pun laid it live on air. As he listens, a look of absolute delight creeps across his face which is soon replaced by that telltale look of disgust every Rap fan displays upon hearing a particularly ridiculous verse. That moment encapsulates everything that was great about the iconic show, because that’s how we all felt every week as we listened in.

Joe explains that people ask him all the time if he has any unreleased Pun verses, and until then, he thought he knew every one that existed by heart. Moments like that, where the nicest MCs of the era laid some of their most amazing verses, were common during the show’s nearly decade long run. But if you weren’t listening at the time, with your finger on that record button, there was a good chance you were going to miss out. Additionally, you had to be within range of the antenna that sat atop the World Trade Center or you were shit out of luck.

Long before mixtapes became the default distribution method for the streets, recordings of this show were traded across the United States and eventually the world. That exclusivity, coupled with the mind bogglingly on-point curation of up and coming talent, is precisely what made listening to WKCR every week such a religious experience for 90′s Rap fans.
