Film screening and Q & A: Stretch and Bobbito: Radio That Changed Lives
12/6/2015 at 6:00 PM

IN THE TERRACE THEATER

 During the 1990s, DJs 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 exceed 300 million. The late-night program had a cult following in the art/fashion world and prison population as well. All would loyally tune in for the offbeat humor just as much for the exclusive tunes. Stretch and Bobbito brought a unique audience together, and created a platform that changed music forever. (View the trailer here.) Immediately following the film will be a Q & A with the show's creators, Stretch Armstrong and Bobbito Garcia. Presented by HedRush and The Kennedy Center's One Mic. This program contains strong language. Free general admission tickets will be distributed in the States Gallery starting at approximately 5:30 p.m., up to 2 tickets per person. A capacity audience is anticipated. Patrons are requested to enter the Kennedy Center through the Hall of States and proceed to the Terrace Theater via the Hall of States elevators.
