It’s very rare for a radio show to be described as life-changing – especially in the present day; but during the 90s, it was Stretch and Bobbito who came through with that title for every listener and artist who tuned in to their radio show.
During what probably was the best decade [to me], Stretch and Bobbito introduced the world to unsigned and unknown artists we now know as Nas, Biggie, Wu-Tang, Big Pun, Jay-Z, Eminem, and the Fugees.
Have I got your attention now?
Bobbito Garcia – one-half of the radio duo – recently directed a documentary on the radio show that changed so many lives, and Sydney has been chosen as the Australian city to premiere its release.
Hugely entertaining, often hilarious, and altogether informative and passion-fueled, the documentary, “Radio That Changed Lives”, chronicles the duo’s history through their own firsthand accounts as well as re-collections, anecdotes, and testimonials from your favorite rappers and your favorite rappers’ fave rappers.
“The late night program had a cult following in the art/fashion world and prison population as well. All would loyally tune in for the humor just as much for the exclusive tunes. Stretch and Bobbito brought a unique audience together, and created a platform that changed music forever.”
