About Us

Founded in 1991, Jay Smooth’s Underground Railroad was New York’s longest running hip-hop radio show, a pillar of New York’s underground scene hailed by Chuck D as home to “the best hip-hop conversations.” After parting ways with WBAI radio in 2018, The Underground Railroad now broadcasts right here every Saturday from 5:30 to 7:30 PM EST from the legendary Bondfire studios in Brooklyn, NY.
