2005 1-Xtra Show

Yes, in 2005 Mike Allen recorded a one off show for BBC 1 Xtra in recognition of his contributions to Hip Hop music in the UK back in the 1980's. The show was broadcast on 2nd October 2005 with Mike choosing to run through many of the big influential Hip Hop records of the mid 1980's with some classic anecdotes to fill the gaps. It's a great show and it was obvious to all that listened he still had what it takes to keep the audience entertained and tuned in with his great character.
