Hot Mix Classics Channel On WBMX.COM
It’s the Hot Lunch Mix, Friday Night Jams and Saturday Night Live Ain’ No Jive Chicago Dance Party around the clock on this channel. A channel filled with nothing but mixes from the Hot Mix 5 and others who graced the airwaves on WBMX back in the day.
The original Hot Mix 5 members were assembled by Lee Michaels back in 1981. The DJ team consisted of Mickey Mixin’ Oliver, Farley Jackmaster Funk, Scott Smokin’ Silz, Ralphi The Razz Rosario and Kenny Jammin’ Jason.
Along with them, there were guest mixers including Sal Amato, Jimmy Perna, Alex Childs, Xavier Gold, Fast Eddie, Julian Jumpin’ Perez who’d go on to win the battle of the DJS in 1984 and fill the void left by Scott Smokin’ Silz who left in 1982.
Many of the LIVE mixes you’ll hear on this channel were recorded by fans just like you from back in the day on WBMX AM and FM.
