Kool DJ Red Alert WRKS Kiss FM – August 1989

It’s Summer 1989 in New York City, it’s hot, Propmaster Kool DJ Red Alert is rockin’ the red shorts and he could probably do with some Juicy Fruit. Boogie Down Productions’ D-Nice is manning the request line, while Ms Melodie [R.I.P.] is hanging out in the studio along with Jeff Foxx who takes care of presentation duties.

Red tears up classic after classic, and drops some truly iconic WRKS IDs and promos: Mike Tyson, Shirt Kings, Gods favourite DJ Clark Kent, the Bizzie Boys and more. Note just how tight Red Alert is on the 2s and 1s, and keep an ear out for the airplane effect. All the ads on the tape have been preserved, for good reason. Full TL on the Soundcloud.
