Remembering Tony D: Thursday Night Live Clips

April 6, 2009 – 10:07 am

Throughout this week, I’m going to be sharing some memories about Tony D’s music and his time on WPRB. Though I was just a fan, he played a big role in the way I listened to, made, and played music. I’m not sure quite how else to pay tribute other than sharing memories and sharing music.

Let’s start with a few select Tony D moments from this tape (1991-1992). Every week when I tuned into WPRB, I hoped for a Thursday Night Live session, not just for the guests but to see what Tone would bring to the table. He was often trying out new lyrics that either wound up on “Droppin’ Funky Verses” or the Crusaders for Real Hip-Hop album.

Here are just a few minutes of my favorites…

Does this post look like it's missing a download or streaming link? I'm currently in the (slow) process of getting the content moved over to the Internet Archive for a more permanent hosting solution. If you'd like me to hurry up already and get this particular audio back online soon, leave a comment!

  2. I also listened to WPRB almost every week to hear his and any of his NEW beats and songs he would make. I also remember watching him on YO MTV RAPS! I also used to go to WILLINGBORO NJ to pick up any and all of the 12″ records he put out. I have one of his beats, and one from some Trentron groups he produced.

    I only talked to him once or twice through IM
