“I djed for Krisy’s Steppin To The AM show on and off for a couple of years in the early 90s. I don’t have many tapes of it but this one is ok. Hip Hop was gold at that time and there’s lots of good tracks on here by all kinds of big names and also some others who have slipped into obscurity. The drill at PBS every Saturday was this. 5 minutes before the show a bunch of people carrying 1200s, mixer etc would be in the foyer with Krisy trying to regulate their behaviour in some way, then at 10pm she’d play a couple cds while we plugged in the decks and everything else. No one was paid enough to buy all the new releases at the time so we had a loan system from Central Station, when we returned the records they would very carefully examine each one for fingerprints, one smudge we had to buy it. Subsequently much of the djing was done very gingerly, with fingers on the edge style the flavor. Often the studio housed up to 20 people, many were drunk and some bought bongs in on the train and literally filled the station with smoke. Every now and then the management would crack down on the antics and the language / sentiment of some songs but Krisy always seemed to manage to appease them and keep the show on air, till she got sick of it that is. Apparently it was one of the highest rating shows of the time and most definitely influenced a generation of Melbourne Hip Hop.” – https://www.mixcloud.com/The_Late_Show/11-ransom-and-dj-krissy-steppin-to-the-am-pbs-fm-27393-part1-ransom-month-of-mixes/
