Welcome back to the show for a special 20th episode edition. This is a loose free style discussion on everything from what we've learned about our fellow djs, the future of the show and a very deep discussion on the recent surge in local club closures. This is a very deep and serious chat about the business side of club nights, club ownership and it's especially useful information for djs looking to play in these venues.Grand Master's Grooves

Check it out ya'll! This episode features Dj Shock and Dj Apprentice of the Hot 98 mix crew. A very informative discussion that's somewhat of a extension to our Dj Payback show in which we dive further behind the scene of the world of Hip-Hop radio. This show should also serve a great reminder of how dedicated us djs have to be to get put on.Very fun talk reminiscing of the early days of radio and how much has changed within the last 10 yrs. Enjoy!The Vision of Music

Thanks for joining us on this episode of BTCF as we welcome yet another legend, Mike "Big Nut" Lopez! This man has the record for the longest active dj locally and is the type of guy in which there's not enough time to hear his stories of inspiration and to learn a little something from him. Speaking of, this show is a great listen, to get us grounded back to the basics and fun of djing. Mixing cassette tapes, making women take their clothes off,the life of growing up in a already made party atmophere...it's all here!

It is sometimes believed that a dj's character and personality can shine up and beyond the music they spins and our guest, JR Sid The Kid is the testament to that. This is another fun show of pure freestyling conversations as we explores JR's unorthodox approach to being a djing and his unexpected induction into it.

Oh my damn...This show is truly buckwild! If you got Kool Keith, Luther Campbell, Q-Bert, some old school Nintendo games and threw them all in a blender, you'll get our man, Dj Grapla! We're very proud to have him as our Arizona ambassador of scratch and he has made a name for himself bridging the old and new era of battle djs...not to mention, he also rocks parties. This show isn't definately for the kiddies....enjoy!
