B-Boys Underground started as a summer program on WAIF 88.3 FM, a community radio station in Cincinnati, Ohio. It ran 8am-10am Tuesday morning the summer of 1995. The original 1200 HOBOs Mr. Dibbs and DJ Skip did the show and it was hosted by an assortment of mc’s known as the empire (now defunct). The next summer (1996), in order to get the program back, I (G-Fresh) stepped in and took over the show as the host with Mr. Dibbs being the primary DJ. We had an incredible summer with the show. We aired Thursdays from 1:00pm to 2:00pm. We had a sponsor for the show, something few summer programs have ever had, and gave away lots of tapes & cd’s and tickets to the "Smoking Grooves Tour". The Tour featured Busta Rhymes, Spearhead, A Tribe Called Quest, The Fugees, Cypress Hill & Ziggy Marley. We interviewed Luke, The Alkaholiks, Xzibit and Nneka. We averaged 40-50 calls in an hour show. We handled our business so thorough that we moved in to a regular time slot at the end of the summer. Once again this was very, very rare for the station.
We started on Wednesday night, moved to Tuesday night within a month and 3 months later moved to Friday night 2am to 4am. G-Fresh was the Host and Nobody The Unknown Stuntman the Co-Host. The 1200 HOBOs Mr. Dibbs, John Doe and occasional other HOBOs (DJ Skip, Signify, Jerm) stopped in to DJ. Also 3rd Finger Record Pool DJ's Bizzy Biz and Nate The Great would come through. DJ Pillow was instrumental in helping with the show after Mr. Dibbs was no longer a part.
The shows format is underground hip-hop. The show is fun for us to do and entertaining for our audience. We have call in blasting contest, Gangsta vs. Hip-Hop chronicles where we discuss various topics pretaining to hip-hop music and culture, promotional giveaways, on air mc battles, guest dj’s, contest, etc... We also play a mixture of old school, mid school and new school hip-hop and turntablist mixtapes. We have interviewed such artist as Guru of Gangstarr, Big Pun, Boogie Monsters, Rappin 4-Tay, G.L.O.B.E., Jazzy Jay and more. If ever in Cincinnati, Ohio check us out !

Our second show was called Da Session which started in October of 1996. DJ Skillz & DJ Will started the show. It was mainly ran by DJ Skillz up until early 2001 when he became a dj/host on 100.9 WIZF FM. The show started out featuring predominately East Coast Hip-Hop artists. The genre changed to encompass all Urban Music right before DJ Skillz left and DJ Will & Easz E took over. Others who helped out with the show was Big Hoss, DJ Mixmasta Ace, DJ Lighthouse, DJ Undaground & Dashik aka DJ Black Earth
