I'm late in blogging this, but the last broadcast of The Science from Blueberry Hill was Friday, September 29. The weekly KDHX hip-hop show was broadcast from a live event since mid-1998. You'll still be able to catch it on 88.1 FM on Friday nights.
I first got in contact with the local bboy scene through The Science. The last few times I attended the event, the turnout was sparse, but I was hoping it would pick up with the fall return of Wash U students.
The Science website hasn't been updated since June 2005. The last post to their forums was on March 3 of this year.
Blueberry Hill's calendar looks a lot more open without a regular Friday night event.

It saddens me to see this outlet for REAL hip hop come to an end. I only went a few times over the past few years, so I'm just as guilty as anyone else. The few times I did go it was pure magic. There were no bad vibes or mean mugging, or discrimination for that matter. All colors seemed welcome just as long as they came to dance or nod in time to the always great DJs. Those people behind the decks held the marionette strings that kept that funky little room jumping. Hopefully there will soon be a new venue for the 21+ crowd to get down to some real hiphop. And I give thanks to those who kept it going for so many years.
