5/4/2011 Radio Pocho


"Call Me Big Quarters" You ever reminisce to the days when all you had was a seven digit number and a couple of quarters to call that special someone. On this episode of Radio Pocho we bring you some telephone jams from The Boys, New Edition, Blondie, Timbiriche, El Gran Combo, La Sonora Dinamita, Jorge Ben and plenty plenty more....

Joining us in the studio this evening is Big Quarters, Twin Cities hip hop duo made up of Medium Zach and Brandon Allday. We get a chance to hear some old BQ that was never released as well as cuts that will be featured on their next album "Party Like A Young Commie". Both Zach and Brandon have produced beats and remixes that you'll hear on tonight's episode with songs by Brother Ali, Slug of Atmosphere, Low, and Mankwe Ndosi.

Lastly find out about Radio Pocho's next edition of Saturday Love at Ginger Hop Restaurant.
