Back in 2007, the homie TyG from the HVW8 collective asked me to come do a podcast.

I had never done one.

This was before I was on Serato, so I packed a bag of records and CDR’s and fell thru their gallery off Melrose.

They had a podcast series they used to record live every sunday featuring some of the best dj’s and musicians in the city.

They also would BBQ out front on the sidewalk during the recording. Hence the “Live At The BBQ” title.

So, this was volume 17. And In the first week after they posted it up, it got more plays and downloads than the previous 16 volumes combined.

So I started my own podcast on Podomatic and quickly became one of the podcasts with the heaviest traffic on the site.

So yeah, this was the one that started it all…

Some of this shit still ain’t come out.
