    Episode 3: Joe Conzo

    Episode 3: Joe ConzoJoe Conzo has been described as the man who took Hip-Hop’s baby pictures but his story is much richer than that. A Bronx New York native that came of age in the 1970’s he was the man capturing the birth of the Hip-Hop scene as depicted in the book ‘Born In The Bronx’. If you have seen pictures of early Hip-Hop then you have seen photos by Joe. After a couple of tough years where he had troubles with addiction and became homeless he turned his life around training as a nurse and then becoming a medic with the New York Fire Department and even being one of the many on the ground during the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Centre. You can check out Joe’s website here - http://joeconzo.com/wp/ and his instagram here - https://www.instagram.com/joeconzo/ Check out the Spotify playlist for his selection here https://open.spotify.com/playlist/5k1XAHN503kcWhypikXprh?si=Gk-Ngj3gQ4uF-ovAonWNsg Discogs Links To Purchase these Songs / Albums:Marvin Gaye ‘What’s Going On’  - https://www.discogs.com/Marvin-Gaye-Whats-Going-On/master/66631Gil Scott Heron & Brian Jackson ‘Winter In America’ - https://www.discogs.com/Gil-Scott-Heron-Brian-Jackson-Winter-In-America/master/7849Dr Buzzard’s Original Savannah Band - https://www.discogs.com/Dr-Buzzards-Original-Savannah-Band-Dr-Buzzards-Original-Savannah-Band/master/87523Santana ‘Abraxas’ - https://www.discogs.com/Santana-Abraxas/master/31598The Ghetto Brothers ‘Power-Fuerza’ - https://www.discogs.com/Ghetto-Brothers-Power-Fuerza/master/500374 Rubble Kings Documentary about The Ghetto Brothers - https://www.imdb.com/title/tt1730714/ Please like and subscribe to the podcast and follow us on Instagram @TheTop5RecordsPodcast and Facebook Thank to Mo Fingaz for the theme music follow him @DJMoFingaz
