I Believe In Herb, 'Cause He's My Man

On March 7th, 1987, Mike Tyson went the distance in 12 rounds against James "Bonecrusher" Smith to win the WBA heavyweight title. On the other side of the United States, Dana Dane stopped by WBLS to rap with Mr. Magic and give the tri-state area a first taste of selections from his debut album, Dana Dane With Fame.

The homeboy Jorun hooked me up with this audio a couple years back, but the sad thing is he unfortunately cut off much of the interview on his cassette in order to catch the actual music portions of the show that night. However, we do get a glimpse of the exchange between the two, and hear Dana Dane explaining that it took him about 6 months to write Cinderfella Dana Dane after seeing the children's book in a window in NYC.

Does anybody out there have the full segment? You know I'm trying to hear it!

I'm hoping to set aside some time to drop some more substantial posts in the near future. Bear with me!
