The Operating Room

July 8, 1985
WBAU (90.3 FM)
New York, NY, USA

The outrageously funny Doctor Dré was a co-presenter on YO! MTV Raps alongside his comedic cohort Ed Lover, he did a similar co-hosting role on the HOT97 Morning Show during the 90’s on WQHT. He was also the ‘Fearless Leader’ of Def Jam Recording artists Original Concept, but this recording is him in his earliest radio persona, back in 1985.

He gleefully presents this snapshot of 1985 Long Island sound, with a soundtrack made up of Pop Soul and more concrete vibrating Hip-Hop. There are some seriously Gold School tracks played here: "Heartbreakers," "Fly Girl," "Calling Her a Crab," "Marley Marl Scratch," Jimmy Spicer [Prod by Rick Rubin]. You even get some of the Krush Groove All Stars. Apologies for the tape drops and accidental tuning goin on in this one, it’s a bit annoyin but there’s only a couple of em…
