Douglas “Jocko” Henderson rates with Daddy O’ Daylie and Hot Fishing rod Hulbert among the original tempo and blues radio disk jockeys. His soft, swinging, rhymed talkovers had been imitated with the jocks of the first stone period, and became among the main resources for the rap design. Though his impact on hip-hop was essential, it got an indirect path because the model for the toasts of early Jamaican audio system deejays. Some state that Jocko’s syndicated radio displays, beamed in to the Caribbean from Miami supplied the typical for Jamaican deejays. Another tale claims that audio system promoter and record manufacturer Coxsone Dodd came across Jocko using one his record buying excursions towards the U.S., and prompted his dee-jays to imitate Jocko’s design. However his impact reached Jamaica, game titles like “THE FANTASTIC Wuga Wuga” by Sir Lord Comic and “Ace from Space” by U. Roy had been catch phrases straight appropriated from Jocko’s handbag of verbal techniques. When Kool DJ Herc modified the Jamaican audio system to NEW YORK party crowds, the stylized general public address patter that followed his bass weighty system was rooted in Jocko’s rhyming jive patter. Jocko were only available in radio within the Baltimore of 1950, shifting to Philadelphia, where he achieved enough momentum to set up a regular commute to NY for another shift. It had been in NY that he hosted “Jocko’s Rocket Dispatch”, a dark oriented tv dance party display which was the forerunner of “Spirit Teach”. He also produced many looks as an M.C. of tempo and blues displays and hosted huge level record hops that expected ballroom disco displays. Jocko produced few information, but we are able to thank the very first influx of rap’s recognition for a significant recorded example what’s arguably the initial rap design. In 1979, within the wake of “Rapper’s Pleasure”, Philadelphia worldwide released “Tempo Chat”, an instrumental tabs on McFadden and Whitehead’s “Ain’t No Stoppin’ Us Right now” over which Jocko went through his amazing repertoire of dental formulas.
