    #252 – Jonathan Mael

    I welcome author Jonathan Mael to the podcast, his new book ‘Harlem World - How Hip Hop’s Super Showdown Changed Music Forever’ is out now. 







    Jonathan takes us back to a pivotal moment in the history of hip hop. The book chronicles the legendary rap battle between Cold Crush Bros and Fantastic Romantic Five, which took place at Harlem World Club in 1981. The stakes were high, with a $1000 prize for the winner. Mael’s book provides a micro-history of this momentous event and its impact on the music industry.







    Jonathan Mael is a high school teacher and reporter who has written for several publications, including The Boston Globe, The Boston Herald, and ESPN.

    #251 – Republica

    Hey, everyone!







    I had the pleasure of chatting with the iconic Saffron from Republica about their latest single, ‘New York’!







    The band has been on a hiatus for over a decade, and it’s great to see them back in action with this techno-infused pop/rock track. The single is out now via Armalyte Industries.







    During our conversation, we talked about the inspiration behind the song, the making of the video, and Saffron’s time in musical theatre. It was a fantastic chat, and I’m excited to share it with you all!
