Further proving that old saying that nothing good lasts forever, the wonderful, long-running KUSF radio weekly hip-hop show Beatsauce will air its last ever broadcast on 90/3FM this weekend.

The show, which hosts/DJs J-Boogie, Raw-B, and DJ Wisdom (formerly known as Winnie B) have been tirelessly producing since 1994 on Sunday evenings from 6PM to 8PM, was a staple for local hip-hop fans to tune in to every weekend to hear all the latest quality hip-hop releases, great DJ mixes, and interviews with a long list of hip-hop acts both local and national. Recently a fourth DJ/host, DJ Diversify, joined the Beatsauce fold. The good news is that while Beatsauce will no longer be broadcast live weekly on KUSF, it will continue in another format, as a bi-monthly podcast hosted by Brooklynradio.

During its fourteen year tenure on KUSF 90.3FM, Beatsauce gained a devoted following, threw parties and events, and won both a SF Bay Guardian’s “Goldie Award” and a SF Weekly “Best Hip-Hop Radio Show” award. During that same time its countless hip-hop guests (many busting out freestyles or doing DJ sets) included the likes of Peanut Butter Wolf, Rob Swift, KRS-One, Jay-Z, DJ Quest, Common, Eminem, Black Eyed Peas, Gang Starr, EPMD, Outkast, Jurassic 5, Jungle Brothers, Zion I, Mobb Deep, Lyrics Born, Blackalicious, Company Flow, Slick Rick, Conceit, J-Live, Jeru the Damaja, Prince Paul, Hieroglyphics, Bas-1, Bored Stiff, Crown City Rockers, Breakestra, Brown Fellinis, and Dre Dog (before he became Andre Nickatina), to name but a handful.

Eartha Kitt 1927 - 2008

Orson Welles
once called her "most exciting woman in the world;" Eartha Kitt, the singer, actress, sex kitten and cultural icon has died in Connecticut on Christmas Day of colon cancer. She was 81. Her flirty, sexy rendition of “Santa Baby” from 1953 has become a holiday standard, but that was just one part of a career that spanned more than six decades.

Her success extended far beyond the music world into stage, television and film. Just last year Kitt won two Emmys for her role in The Emperor's New School; previously she had been nominated for several Tony and Grammy Awards. In 1966, she made a guest appearance on an episode of I Spy which brought Kitt her first Emmy nomination. But her most famous role is probably that of the sexy villain the Catwoman in the 1960’s hit television series Batman. Kitt had replaced Julie Newmar who originated the role.

She is probably equally as famous for her anti-war comments on the Viet Nam conflict, especially since the most notorious words were spoken at the White House as she attended a luncheon held by Lady Bird Johnson. She adamantly stated, "You send the best of this country off to be shot and maimed, they rebel in the street, they don't want to go to school because they're going to be snatched off from their mothers to be shot in Vietnam."

Needless to say, she spent several years being investigated by the FBI and CIA, and for most of a decade she seldom performed in the U.S. That is, until 1978 when Kitt was invited back to the White House by President Jimmy Carter.
