Tonight we are WORLDWIDE.....

Usual drill, 1st hours breaks and beats, 2nd hour hip hop, starts at 9PM GMT, available locally on 102.5FM and globally over at

I'm in a hurry so here's Dave's blurb from the invites that went out to our facebook group members, catch you later!

We're fitting so much in the show this week we're taking Epillim as a precaution!

Winner Stays On champs FOULMOUTH & ACID REIGN return to defend their title with a live phone interview prior to taking on a new challenger; we introduce Newcastle's finest steel drum orchestra, the All Stars, Weathergirl Mel reveals more stunning meteorological nous; and who knows, we may just get carried away and start shouting again.

Beats garnered from the dustiest reaches of the crates this week include the likes of Muddy Waters, Ill Boogs, Henry Mancini, Keno 1 & The Hermit, NASA, Depthcharge and The Love Unlimited Orchestra; Hip hop wise we have some grade-A classics from Kool Keith, Big Daddy Kane, Channel Live, Jehst, Brand Nubian and Kamanchi Sly to name just a few..

Join us at 9pm (GMT) or 4pm (EST (see? We're learning)) on 102.5FM for the locals or over at for our WORLDWIDE brethren.

Make Beats, Not War.

What's going on?

This is what's going on......

Wednesday's show kicked ass, one of our best so far (only 6 shows left till our first year broadcasting anniversary). We had;

The usual array of 1st rate breaks, beats and rhymes and some soundtrack nuggets from Roy Budd and friend of the show Mr Lalo Schifrin.

Mel (Head of The Bottomless Crates Meteorology Division) updated us on meeting Rio Ferdinand (England football captain) at Legoland.

A live call in from Dweller to accept the retiring Winner-Stays-On championship on behalf of Rick Mal (not to mention his own work on the tracks Rick flowed over) and also to introduce Organix which is now going to be a regular feature on the show (we're very happy to promote this - top, top tunes with a platform for unsigned artists to rip the mic).

With Rick Mal retiring undefeated, the Winner-Stays-On battle got two new artists in the shape of Foul Mouth & Acid Reign representing NY state versus Baron Von Alias & MistaBreeze representing Newcastle - 2 awesome tracks went head to head and voting kicked off with early heavy support to the US (including Lexi from North Carolina who called the studio within 5 mins of the votes opening - dedication!). Voting remains open till midnight Saturday - so do your bit by hitting the facebook group and posting on our wall or, if you ain't on facebook, either email us or put something up on the website chat box...

Anyway, looks like next week is going to be massive.... So, to wrap up the first show for June... here's the links you'll need;

Apologies if I forgot anyone or anything, shit's been hectic - in a good way!

TBC dropping bombs live tomorrow...

Britains got talent? You bet your sweet ass. Its the UK vs New York in
our now world famous Winner Stays On slot as Baron Von Alias takes on
Acid Reign & Foulmouth; Dweller (Producer of winner stays on
champion Rick Mal's tracks) introduces Organix, a new regular feature on
the Crates, bringing you massive worldwide collaborations. No...
approaching their first birthday, we look back at some previous tracks
and look forward to part 17 - Kung Fu. As always we have a healthy
selection of breaks, beats and nonsense, Weathergirl Mel's latest
escapades (hopefully), Perrier Award winning comedy and we see if we can
make dough rise on the studio mixing desk.
or 102.5fm at 9pm GMT
