Stretch Armstrong & Bobbito Show - 89.9 FM - 11.19.92
I’ve never listened to this show, with the exception of snippets that KBL had on a tape. On it, you’ll find my main stain Crazy Legs of Rock Steady, an unsigned group named Ruffneck Bastards, The Coup, Casual from Hiero and a funny as ever Rhythm X a.k.a. Kool Keith, who rhymes, takes over the hosting duties and then takes phone calls with us for the last hour or so. Maybe tomorrow night / Friday morning at one a.m., you could press play and zone out as if it were live. The Digable Planets joint was for Kurious. He was feelin’ that, so I figured I should play it. What was I thinking? And peep how there is absolutely no music for the last hour for krunchtime, calls and bullshitting for an hour Acapulco. Who was the tired DJ? — Stretch Armstrong

Back in the late 90’s we were touring in N. America and Japan a lot and mixtapes were a small, cheap piece of merchandise to sell at shows so I put this collection together. Using scraps of turntable jams from Stealth, Solid Steel and various other gigs we’d been recording over the preceding years as well as answerphone messages and other miscellanea, this ramshackle collection resulted.
It’s all live, virtually all improvised, there are mistakes, needle skips, sloppy scratches and bad sound quality (sound sources were from cassette or portable DAT generally). There were possibly around 500 copies made but I only had one myself. The audio for this rip was taken from the master DAT though and EQ’d and balanced in places to make it a nicer listen. The cover image of a John Coltrane painting was taken in Tortoise’s kitchen in Chicago, one Sunday on a day off when PC and I were there with Bundy K Brown, hence the title.Sunday At Bundy’s - DJ Food’s Audio Scrapbook
