True-Skool Radio

Shyne.jpgTrue Skool Radio provides information about College Radio. This genre of radio broadcasting is salient in Hiphop's development and global proliferation. Not only have many Hiphop artists (e.g., Chuck D), Hiphop journalists (e.g., Davey D) and Hiphop entrepreneurs (e.g., James Bernard of The Source) got their industry start in college radio, but much of the current "underground" and "conscious" Hiphop also continues to thrive at such stations.
