The Fantastic Voyage Radio show CKLN, 1987 (1987-002POS)


The Fantastic Voyage was a community radio show run by DJ Ron Nelson.  The show played a variety of music genres from Funk to Rockers, but eventually became the spot to hear hip hop music in Toronto in the 1980s.  It is rumoured that more than 500,000 people turned into the Fantastic Voyage every Saturday afternoon from 1-4pm.  The show significantly influenced the growth of hip hop music in this city, introducing numerous American artists such as KRS-1 to Toronto while supporting the growth of local talent like Rumble & Strong.  This show is one of the first places KRS-1 played the “Bridge is Over”, long before it was even pressed to vinyl.
