Best Radio Show for Local Music

Strictly Hip-Hop

WEAA-FM (88.9), midnight-5 a.m., Saturdays

When WEAA’s weekly hip-hop program started two decades ago, hip-hop didn’t yet rule the airwaves and a niche program on a college station was still one of the best ways to follow the budding genre. In 2010, Strictly Hip Hop is still a necessity for Baltimore’s rhyme addicts, but for a completely different reason: It serves as a hub for local artists as well as a place to debate where the music is headed, and preserves some small remaining sense of community and credibility. Staying up past midnight to listen to Ahk and Florida talk about the latest singles in the station’s crates is still a little like having that cool friend at the record store who knows about everything before you do.
