His Name Is DMC..The All-Time Great..

Some call this the original "Rock Box"

If you told me when I was 12 years old that one day I would meet a member of Run DMC, I would have told every girl that checked the "No" box on those notes I sent them that one day "you'll be sorry!"

Ok, that's not true..in fact they would have checked "No" twice...

It's true, I met DMC for the first time at Michael Bivins' 50th celebration at Ramsey Park in Roxbury. In fact, I was next to him in the opening prayer circle to start the event. At the time, I just said "Please to meet you!"

Inside, I wanted to find all those rejection notes from junior high school..I kept them for motivation...

Ironically, a few days ago a member of our sister station WZLX asked me if I would be interested in interviewing DMC this week....


Suddenly, I ported back to 1986...

What was supposed to be a 7-10 minute conversation became a 13 minute revelation by one of my idols..the GREAT DMC...

So imagine to my surprise when DMC revealed a behind the scenes story behind the making of "Walk This Way" with Aerosmith...it was the song that ALL of friends knew..even if they didn't like Hip Hop.

Check out the full length, unedited interview with DMC ("the all time great...)
