Record Roots

Every Month – Wednesdays 9pm (UK Time)

Hosted by Joe Cronin & Greg Aris, Record Roots is a unique show exploring the samples used in some of the most iconic hip-hop, dance and electronic records. Each month, we’ll take an artist and unpick which samples they’ve used throughout their discography. The show originally aired on Hoxton FM back in 2017, before coming to BRUM RADIO in 2020.

This month the show explores samples used in the music of iconic Brooklyn rapper, Jay – Z. Featuring songs from the likes of James Brown, Nina Simone and and Otis Redding.
