Keep it Peel

Outside of the big cities, John Peel was one of the only ways to hear hip hop in the mid-'80s (without joining loads of coat hangers together). I can remember hearing so many great tracks on there (MC Shan, Steady B, Tackhead, DJ Cheese and Word Of Mouth, Mantronx etc etc).

He also had some old-school UK hip hop acts on. Here's a selection-

Cookie Crew
3 Wise Men
Overlord X
MC Duke

Actually, some of these may be from Andy Kershaw's show.
