Hey Tina!
I read your blog. Thank you for the correction! I was sure Rapture came out in 1979, but I was El-wrong-o! My apologies! This coming Sunday, I’ll make the correction. It will give me a good excuse to play the Sugar Hill Gang!
Feel free to make suggestions for the show. I could use help from a fellow music lover! I always have my ears open for great music.
All the best!

SARAH SULLIVAN OF WBYY – 98.7 THE BAY & BRUNCH BY THE BAY – LET ME OLD SCHOOL YOU AND YOUR RADIO STATION, HONEY! “RAPTURE” BY BLONDIE WAS NOT THE FIRST RAP SONG!


(September 16, 2012)

I sure as hell hope that I don’t start a race war with this one but I gotta’ keep it real and tell Sarah Sullivan, a disc jockey on New Hampshire’s 98.7 The Bay Radio Station that “Rapture” by Blondie is not the first rap song.

At approximately 11:00 am this morning on her popular radio show, Brunch By The Bay, Sarah Sullivan introduced the song “Rapture” by Blondie as “The First Rap Song” and with that opened up a big-ass can of racial worms! So, here we go!

“Rapture” by Blondie was the first rap-influenced song to reach number one on the Billboard Music Charts in early 1981.

But Rapper Kurtis Blow’s influencial rap song, “The Breaks” hit the Billboard Charts much earlier in 1980 peaking at number 87.

While the Sugar Hill Gang’s rap song, “Rappers Delight” hit the Top 40 on the Billboard Music Charts on January 5, 1980 making it the first rap song to ever hit the music charts.

And way, way, way before even these history making boys and girl, other rappers in the late 1970’s in places ranging from New York to California had already created popular rap songs that were played and sold around their neighborhoods only. So rap music was out and about way way way before Blondie’s hit rap-influenced song, “Rapture” ever came out.

Blondie’s place in rap history is that they brought rap to the white masses and diversified it.

And in this black girl’s opinion, they did a damn good job because I absolutely love the song!

So Sarah Sullivan of 98.7 The Bay & The Bay Radio Station, please get your facts straight before you broadcast them to the New Hampshire masses so you can avoid blog posts like this from pissed off rap fans like me.

P.S.    Sarah, even though I feel that your statement on the air was false this morning, I still love your show! Keep up the good work  Sarah, Garrison City Broadcasting & Robert Demers!  But be sure to precheck your facts!
