Stretch and Bobbito: Radio That Changed Lives - Philly Premiere

During the 1990s, Stretch and Bobbito introduced the world to an unsigned Nas, Biggie, Wu-Tang, and Big Pun, as well as an unknown Jay Z, Eminem, and the Fugees. The total record sales for all the artists that premiered on their show exceeds 300 million. The late-night radio show also had a cult following in the art and fashion world as well as the prison population. Fans would loyally tune in for the offbeat humor just as much as the exclusive tunes. Stretch and Bobbito brought a unique audience together and created a platform that changed music forever.

The philadelphia film premiere is on Wednesday, October 21, 7pm at Franky Bradleys, 1320 Chancellor Street, Philadelphia, PA. The event is hosted by Rich Medina followed by a Q&A session, and after party with Stretch, Bob, and Rich Medina DJ set.
