Episode 76- Ageing Gracefully in Hip-Hop with guest Jon Sklute

Special episode this week, we have a sit-down interview with Jon Sklute who details his journey from Bay Area underground  MC and producer to NYC record store owner to re-issue label owner and major label musicologist. He worked hard, stayed true to the game, and took care of his family, a great example for all of us. He’s got great stories, especially about the customers at his former shop, the aptly named Good Records. Interspersed are snippets of music he has produced or had a hand in releasing, including one partial verse from a young teen who would go on to become an underground mainstay.
