    Tonight Wednesday, some of you might be interested in listening to "The
    Blend" a show which goes out on DCU FM across North Dublin on 97.3FM and
    live online at

    Presented by Peter Curtin, along with funk and hip-hop it will feature an in
    depth interview with Limerick-born , LA based hip hop photographer/film
    maker B+ (Brian Cross).

    B+ is a hip hop photographer and author of the definitive L.A. hip-hop
    history, ‘It’s Not About A Salary’ - a compilation of images and interviews
    documenting LA’s exploding hip-hop scene, which was received as the West
    Coast text equivalent of the classic b-boy documentary ‘Wild Style’. Brian
    has more than a decade of experience shooting everything from big-time album
    covers to low-budget films, including his documentary ‘Keepintime: Talking
    Drums and Whispering Vinyl’, which introduced four legendary drummers (Earl
    Palmer, Paul Humphrey and James Gadson) to the most skilled beat jugglers
    (Cut Chemist, J-Rocc and Babu). With portraits of everyone from the Boo-Yaa
    T.R.I.B.E. and Watts Prophets to Saul Williams, Mos Def and DJ Shadow under
    his belt, Brian has become one of the key sources of information on the hip
    hop scene.
