The Awesome Two (Special K & Teddy Tedd) - 105.9 WNWK March 19, 1994 (320kbs)

These brothers (well cousins actually) are part of the original few DJs that played Hip Hop on the air. They started on WHBI in May 1982 and continued there all the way until 2004 (note: during this time WHBI became WNWK). During the era of this particular upload (3/19/94) they rocked on Saturday nights from midnight until 1am and then the show repeated from 4am-5am. They combined all the elements of Hip Hop radio by playing breaks, R&B blends, old school joints, the latest music as well as having special guests. Unfortunately on this show here their guest Strictly Roots ("Beg No Friends") never made it up in time. Not only did A2 not get paid to have their own show, but they had to pay for their time slot. Now that's true dedication. Salute to K & Tedd and thank you for helping Hip Hop reach the masses and giving many of us an outlet to do what we love. Many more years fellas.
