Conversations LIVE Celebrates A 3-Day Special Event Featuring Wonder Mike and Master Gee

As it prepares to celebrate its 5th year on Blogtalkradio and 10th year on the radio, Conversations LIVE prepares to bring listeners Hip Hop royalty with the Sugar Hill Gang.

Beginning Saturday, June 8th host Cyrus Webb will welcome original members Wonder Mike and Master Gee to the show as well as Roger Pardiso the director of the new documentary called I WANT MY NAME BACK.

Below is the schedule:

Saturday, June 8th @ 6:30p.m. et (5:30p.m. ct/3:30p.m. pt) --- Wonder Mike of the Sugar Hill Gang,
Sunday, June 9th @ 5p.m. et (4p.m. ct/2p.m. pt) --- I Want My Name Back director Roger Paradiso,
Monday, June 10th @ 1:30p.m. et (12:30p.m. ct/10:30a.m. pt) --- Master Gee of the Sugar Hill Gang, 

“I Want My Name Back” highlights the rise, fall, and rise again of original members of
The Sugarhill Gang, Michael Wright (aka Wonder Mike) and Guy O'Brien (aka Master Gee). One of the most influential songs in the history of the music industry and #2 in Rolling Stone’s Top Hip Hop Songs of all time, "Rapper's Delight" was the first commercial Hip Hop release, forever changing the face of the music industry. “Rapper's Delight” is still, to this day, the number one selling single in hip hop history.

The group followed up their first hit with another song still played today called “Apache”.  Their first three albums went platinum.  While this success should have cemented the legacy and careers of the original members, reality tells a much different story--one that most people, including those in the hip hop world, are not even aware of.  A story of unprecedented identity theft, copyright and trademark violations, Master Gee and Wonder Mike fight a more than 30 year battle against their label to get their names and legacy back.  The film also features Grandmaster Caz (The Cold Crush Brothers), Melle Mel (Grandmaster Flash), and Vinnie and Treach (Naughty by Nature).  “I Want My Name Back” is the journey of two men who want what was taken from them: their names, their legacy and their music!
