DILLA DILLA BEATS BEATS... 2/25

Thursday, February 25, 2010
Jay Dee/Dilla/J Dilla/Dilla Dawg/Dill Withers/James Yancey both entered and left this world in the month of February, so it would be a travesty to let the month completely pass without paying proper tribute and celebrating the incredible music that was his life's work. With that thought in mind, tonight's party at Marvin should be amazing!



Thursday, February 25, 2010
9pm
Marvin
2007 14th St NW DC

The all-star DJ lineup:
RBI | Stylus | Book | JahSonic | 2-Tone Jones | Roddy Rod | J-Laine
& Special Guests

$5 Donation (Proceeds to benefit The JDILLA Foundation)

The line-up of DJs alone should be enough to let you know that this event will be CRUCIAL. It's a CCCA & Decipher family takeover!

I'll be on the radio from 10-11pm (it's the last week of pledge drive-- please support WPFW and our show!!), but I fully intend on breaking land speed records getting from WPFW to 14th & U as soon as I get off-the-air!

Hope to see you there!

THIS JUST IN: I suddenly don't feel so bad about missing the first couple hours of the party at Marvin tonight... I've got an interview lined-up with Brand Nubian! They'll be at Liv on Saturday, so I'll help you get your mind right for that show as well. Yeah, that isht didn't happen... and that's why I never tease interviews before I've got the bamma(s) on the phone or sitting in the studio!



Saturday, February 27, 2010
9pm
Liv
2001 11th St NW DC

Featuring:
VON | Underdog| RBI | God's Killa A.W.R. BBoys | Tarica June | 2-Tone | Cornel West Theory

Tune in tonight, then let's hit the streets!

Ill Street Grooves - Tribute to the Grandmaster

Wednesday, September 23, 2009


Our Monday night Decipher brethren paid homage to Grandmaster Roc Raida who passed away over the weekend leaving hip-hop without one of its most pioneering decknicians and many of us with one less hero.

So much to say about this one. I haven't assembled my own words yet. Glad that Fat Joe and AG, the Supa Funk Regulator DJ Celo and DJ Roddy Rod were available to lend their thoughts.

I only realized it a day or so ago, but our broadcast last week marked the 4th anniversary of "Decipher's" debut on WPFW, when the entire "Decipher" crew packed into the studio for the first time to introduce ourselves to the WPFW audience.

Hopefully, in the 200 or so weeks since that show, we've managed to endear ourselves to a few of the WPFW jazz-heads that didn't think hip-hop needed a place on their station, and we've made a respectable number of hip-hop fans supporters of WPFW, the one station in the DMV that's opened the door for us. Shout-outs to the production teams of Ill Street Grooves, Blackademics, Holla Back, The Power Hour, and The Lab for all your efforts in keeping this movement going over these past four years.

WPFW's Winter Pledge drive continues, and it's been one of the most successful we've hosted yet, thanks to those of you who have generously given to the cause. Thanks for making us look good! Next Thursday is the last show of this pledge drive, so, if you haven't gotten arround to supporting the station, the block, or the show yet, please consider representing for us then.

Thanks so much for making our first night of WPFW's Winter Pledge Drive such a success! We exceeded our pledge goal for the night, and we actually had more calls than our volunteers could handle... that never happens.

If you couldn't get through last night, we'll be at it again next Thursday-- February 5th-- and we'll need another section of our listening family to represent for us, so hope you'll be there!

During pledge drive shows, the busier you keep us on the telephones, the less time we spend on the microphones, and the more uninterrupted music we can get on for you, which we know is why you tune in every week... so keep those phones ringing!

Thanks again.
