Food for iPod: On the Road With the Roots

I've had this on my computer and iPod for a while now, but I always enjoy listening to it: Hip-Hop 101: On the Road With the Roots (hosted by Chuck D) (

It's a public radio piece from 1996, following The Roots as they tour before their big breakthrough. It's an amazing look at a band on the cusp of fame and fortune, but having to sleep 5 to a room and drive themselves to and from shows. Great stuff.
