Break me off a piece of that

Upon proudly celebrating 10 years of the show's rich history at the forefront of Drum & Bass, Breaks, Dubstep, Grime, Broken Beat, 2Step and other emerging genres, the hosts of Future Breaks are satisfied that the time has now come to pass the torch and retire the weekly broadcasts of the program. The final broadcast of Future Breaks FM! will air live January 26, 2008 at 4pm PST. Our online presence at will be preserved and we may continue to podcast select archival programs from the "vaults" as well as other surprises. Our small, non-profit radio show was founded in January 1998 by Ms. E, dj PUSH and Arc Angel Gabe Real as an outlet for underground 21st Century electronic dance music featuring weekly, live in-studio mixing by turntable DJs.
Future Breaks FM was a weekly electronic music show with a decidedly Jungle/DnB flavor that ran on KUSF, the University of San Francisco's radio station (which went off the air 2011) from 1998-2008. Forty-nine episodes, up to the last show on 26 Jan 2008, are still available on the podcast archive.

Thank you SO MUCH for this, you've basically saved me from an AskMe which would've looked something like, "How can I catch up on the last 10 years of D&B and associated genres?" The most recent 5 years I think I can swing on my own.

Well in my case this is an additional answer to my own recent askme podcast question. Thanks!

And thank YOU @mannequito for the Mudd Up link—totally new to me, and can't wait to dig in.

If you don't want to deal with the shows as a podcast and/or you want tracklists, it looks like you can browse the blog and get both. Thanks for this, I wanted some variety beyond my go-to of Liquid DnB mixes.

I do miss KUSF.

My original post may have been more of an implied eulogy than is appropriate. KUS is still alive, just internet-only. You can pick it up on Live365, TuneIn, iTunes Radio Tuner, etc, and it's still awesome. For some reason my reception was always crap, so I always streamed it anyway.
