Mike Allen – Capital Rap Show – Friday 16th May 1986

This is a doozy of a show, ripped from the OG tape. It comes in 2 levels of quality, it starts of duff, and after Bodyrock, is FM fine. A few bits from the start of the tape are from 85 and the rest is from Friday May 16th 1986. It’s just a typical show with stuff he always used to play [BAM] and dope stuff like the Le Blanc gear, Peter Piper rising 11 places to be the ‘highest climber of the week’, there’s an Omar Santana DUB, Mike even attempts to blag a pair of trainers, and that Charlie Brown joint?! See the good good people at BUSTTHEFACTS for seperate, much required CB goodness. This was broadcast the weekend before the tickets went on sale for UK Fresh, there’s alot of excitement in Mikes tone, erm, troops !

I only know the date cos Mike informs us that ‘Next Monday’, May 19th, is the day the UK Fresh tickets go on sale. Ah UK Fresh. There are no ads and very few edits to make from this master. The tape was given to me by a pen-pal many moons ago and was carefully pause chopped at the broadcast stage. The hand-style on the label is bananas, and it just looks good too cos it’s perishing. My favourie cut is the CB Girls You Can Make It which uses Vince Guaraldis’ piano music from the Peanuts theme – [Start of Side B]
