1984

Mike's Capital show started its transition into playing mainly Hip Hop during late 1984. Mike was playing jazz, funk and soul before this with the odd Hip Hop track thrown in; the change to the Hip Hop show took around three months. Unfortunately I only have two confirmed recordings from 1984 and would very much like to find some more, so if you have any please get in touch on the email below:
