My heart hurts. Mr. Magic passed away this morning. His "Rap Attack" show on WBLS with DJ Marley Marl, the first exclusively rap format radio show, first DJ mix show EVER, was legendary. Here on the west coast we fiended for tapes, or just word about who was on the show, what records they played, so we could try to find them in the record stores here. In 1985 I listened to the first Rap Attack album non-stop.
Thank you, Mr. Magic!
