The Stretch & Bobbito Show w/ DJ Eclipse & Beni B 89.9 WKCR July 18, 1996 (320kbs)

Both Stretch & Bob were out DJing so Beni B held down the mic while I held down the wheels. Ben, who did radio out West, was in town from the Bay Area and had his man Fusion with him while I had DJ Three with me who we had recently hired at Fat Beats. Two weeks after this show is when Fat Beats moved from the basement location to the 6th Ave spot (Aug 1, 1996). I was running late this night coming from LI so Beni luckily had a bag of rare grooves with him to start the show off. I came on after that (23:50) and played the rest of the night. DJ Three bugged out with us on mic breaks. This show was also a week before Rock Steady Crew's 19th Anniversary and the first ITF DJ competition with the legendary battle between the Rock Steady Crew DJs (aka Invisible Skratch Piklz) and the X-Men (aka X-Ecutioners). A year later Beni B would launch his label ABB Records with Dilated Peoples and Defari. Thanks to Nes for supplying me with missing audio from this night to make it a full show.
