Revolutions On Air: The Golden Era Of New York Radio 1980 - 1988

It should be no big surprise that radio influenced American dance culture massively. Kids carried their ghettoblasters with them on the streets, sharing the sounds of legendary radiostations such as WBLS and KISS FM. This short documentary by Red Bull Music Academy (RBMA) brings light into the golden era of New York radio from 1980 - 1988.

RBMA talks to Stretch Armstrong, Tony Humphries, Strafe, Body Jarvis, Merlin Bobb and other influencers at that time about New York's golden radio era, covering house music and hiphop. ''New York was the only place you should be.''
