KDAY 1580AM 1985 Campus Top 10 Show Dorsey High School Hosted by Lisa Canning [RADIO SHOW] + FREE MP3 DOWNLOAD


It is very rare today that we get a real look at how people were grooving back in the day.   For years, community radio has been an important outlet for up and coming artists.  This was particularly true for hip hop, which did not have as many outlets on radio outside of community, college or AM stations.   Los Angeles, California’s KDAY 1580 AM was one of the most influential and helped usher in a new generation of music that would become widely embraced Worldwide.

Earlier today, we were pleased to get the inside scoop from LA based soulhead (and friend to the site), Lawrence Gilliam, who posted a really great 4-part Top 10 radio show from the mid 1980’s, which was hosted by Lisa Canning who has worked on Dancing With The Stars among other TV appearances.

Here is a recap of the top 10 list:
10. You Ain’t Fresh – Boogie Boys
9. The Show Stoppa – Super Nature (Salt N Peppa)
8. Curiosity – The Jets
7. Don’t Say No Tonight – Eugene Wilde

5. Love Bizarre – Sheila E
