I Can't Live Without My Radio....da-na-naaa

Internet radio. Do you listen to it?

Go on iTunes and fire up the 'Radio'. Just look at how many stations there are out there. It's daunting, isn't it? Click on Hip Hop/Rap and there are 299 channels available from ABC Rap to ZET Rock & Rap.
However if you aren't a fan of iTunes and just prefer to go straight to the source and listen to the music then read on.
There are some stations that I listen to on the reggy-reg. If you have any recommendations then post them up in the comments.

Future Radio

Tuesdays - 10pm-12am - The Hip Hop Sessions with DJ Just-1 - Future Radio

Norwich's own Just-1 controls the wheels of steel for the first hour which can sometimes be newer hip hop while Mr Eps is on for the final 11-12 shift playing the classics.
Future Radio is a community radio station broadcasting in the west of Norwich in Norfolk. You can however listen over the internet from the homepage.

RTÉ Radio

Fridays - 9pm-10pm - The Plastic Attack with DJ Laz-E

Live from Dublin is Ireland's own DJ Laz-E who plays classic hip hop with guest hosts Raggaman Bob and DJ Cool C on rotation.
Expect some back-in-the-day rock breaks as well.

Broadcasting digitally on RTÉ 2XM and also over the internet, thankfully. If you visit the Plastic Attack Facebook page then you can get involved in the chatroom on a Friday.
The show is usually available for download shortly after the live broadcast.

Disco Scratch Radio

Thursdays - 9pm-11pm (sometimes longer...) - The Disco Scratch Show with Waxer

You should all know by now the scoop on this one.
A weekly 2-hour show hosted by Waxer on his own Disco Scratch website with affiliations with Freestyle FM and Sensei FM.
The first and third week of the month are a mish-mash of old and new hip hop. The second week is the Heroes Of UK Hip Hop Takeover show with an emphasis on....er, UK hip hop. The last Thursday of each month is yours truly, the Ageing B-Boys Unite! Takeover Show providing the beats and basslines.
The chatroom is really where the magic is though and you can sign into it whilst listening.
All shows are archived and are available for download shortly after the live broadcast.

The 29th September sees the last regular show on DSR for a short while whilst Waxer relocates and gets things settled then hopefully it'll be back to business mid-November.
