Revolutions On Air: The Golden Era of New York Radio 1980 – 1988 (Red Bull Music Academy Presents) – YouTube.

Watch Red Bull Music Academy presents Revolutions On Air, a short music documentary that explores the dynamic and influential golden era of New York radio in the 1980s.

NYC Radio during the ‘80s featured the most dynamic and influential soundtrack the city has ever heard. Revolutions On Air is the story of mix show legends and studio wizards like Shep Pettibone, Tony Humphries, The Latin Rascals, Marley Marl, and Kool DJ Red Alert – innovators whose “anything goes” attitude pushed the emerging hip-hop, electro, freestyle, and house music scenes and kept radio listeners citywide hooked to their tape decks in order to record these now-classic mixes. Decades later we’re still feeling the impact of these Revolutions On Air.
