If you watch MTV or VH1 it seems that everyone is cool, quick, young and funky. Go back a few years the concept of presenting TV shows in this way was alien. What many people don't know is that Eagle E and Doc B where pioneers of this kind of presenting style.
Their Show Phat n Funky which they produced and wrote was the first of it's kind on British Television. It took the American company BET to have the guts to even air the show through their IC3 Channel.
When BET pulled out of the UK Phat n Funky along with thier gospel content was the only show they wanted to keep.
The show was rejected by the BBC only for them to come out with their own copy cat version a year or so after it was presented them. Well thats showbiz. However for all of you that want to see one of the avenues that lead to the type of TV you now take for granted check out Stevie Eagle E and Peter Doc B in Phat n Funky.
