Update: These tickets have been claimed. Thanks, folks!

Nas before Illmatic. A young Jay Z and Notorious B.I.G. Members of the Wu-Tang Clan, long before they topped the charts with Wu-Tang Forever. Those are just some of the would-be legends that appeared on The Stretch Armstrong and Bobbito Show on WKCR in New York City.

From 1990 to 1998, the late-night radio program led by DJs Stretch Armstrong (Adrian Bartos) and Bobbito (Robert Garcia) captured some of the most golden moments in hip-hop’s golden era. Fans of the music look back on it as the most important hip-hop show of its day.

At 7 p.m. on Nov. 10, NPR is showing a new documentary about the storied show, called Stretch and Bobbito: Radio That Changed Lives. WAMU 88.5 is giving away about two dozen tickets to the event, and we’d love you to score a pair.

So… you want these tickets? Follow these simple instructions: Before noon on Friday, Nov. 6, send an email to with the subject line “Stretch and Bobbito.” Include your full name and the name of your (one) guest, if applicable. If you’re among the first 20ish people to email us, you win.
