Long before veteran DJ and radio programming executive Geoff ‘Geespin’ Gamere (@Geespin) left the media powerhouse iHeart for the greener pastures of mega-talent agency UTA, he was the creator and host of JAMN 94.5’s showcase for the Hip Hop’s next wave from Boston and beyond. The mixshow, still on air today, became a mandatory stop for MC’s on the rise with interviews, exclusive debuts and most importantly freestyles.
The architect of The Breakfast Club hasn’t forgotten his roots as a DJ. Gee has gone into his archives to pull together some of the show’s highlights for Best Of Launch Pad Vol 1 (2002 – 2009. Pulled from the beginnings of the show, Gee gives us a look at just exactly what was shaking on the radio in that era.
