The Strombo Show will run the gamut this Sunday night, keeping the spirit of radio alive.

We'll be ranging over three hours of commercial-free music to honour both old and new. Tonight is the two-year anniversary of the death of Adam "MCA" Yauch, so to honour his life, we will be spinning a lot of Beastie Boys and placing the focus on one record in particular.

Paul's Boutique dropped 25 years ago this July. As the Beasties' sophomore studio album, it was initially considered to be a commercial failure, but has gone on to become one of the most iconic game-changers in the pantheon of hip-hop.

The Boys were in the midst of a self-imposed exile after becoming estranged from producer Rick Rubin and Def Jam, both pillars of their debut record Licensed To Ill. That exile led to musical and personal evolution, leading Miles Davis and Henry Rollins of Black Flag both to refer to Paul's Boutique as one of their favourite albums of all time.

Tonight we celebrate the life of MCA — we'll strip down the samples and influences that stem from the monumental album, track-for-track, and bring you the best.

As always, we'll be tipping our hats to those ground-breakers with a Nod to the Gods, paying tribute to Tom Waits on Ten with Tom and we'll send you into the collective horizontal with the Big Lie Down.

Get on in here! Join the collective.
