URP Tuesdays -- April 12, 2011 -- Most Definitely Classy

We're back once again, holding down your Tuesday night on 102.7fm CFRO!

Co-Op Radio is knee-deep in pledge season, which means we are looking for donations to keep Co-Op the people's station! Any contributions help, and the process is now easier than ever. Just visit the www.CoOpRadio.org pledge page follow the steps to become a Co-Op member or renew your existing membership. Don't forget to mention that the Urban Renewal Project is your favourite show!

We kicked off this week with our usual beat battle and tonight's theme was tracks bigging up one's city. Coincidentally, both picks were cuts about Brooklyn. There was a ton of tracks to pick from, but Brooklyn artists seem to make the best tributes to their stomping ground. The Big M choice jam was Return of the Crooklyn Dodgers by Chubb Rock, Jeru The Damaja & OC, while 2Face Al's pick of the night was Brooklyn by M.O.P.. Both tracks are posted one the URP Facebook group, so check 'em out and let us know what you think!

Stay tuned in the weeks to come, as we have some tickets to some big shows that will go exclusively to listeners who become Co-Op members! We're already sending a supporter to Maseo's Vancouver stop on the 13th and there's more to come!

We got plenty of tunes in tonight, from Classified to Jay Kin, Big K.R.I.T. to so keep it locked on www.URPRadio.Podomatic.com and this blog for tonight's podcast, as well as a few past shows that are going up tomorrow morning!

Also, do yourself a favour and check out Classified's new album, "Hand Shakes & Middle Fingers", which was released today. We are working on getting the Halifax vet on the show in a week's time, so make sure you tune in next week for a chance to win tickets to his Vancouver show on April 21st at Venue Nightclub in Vancouver.
