Red Alert Show

May 1994
WRKS (98.7 FM)
New York, NY, USA

Kool DJ Red Alert in the mix on Kiss 98.7 FM back in '94. Like the other Red tapes I've heard, there's no talking (and even some of the drops are pretty quiet) but the selection is on point. I've taken a guess at the date, based partly on the 30 minutes of a Flex Street Jams show on the same tape. Liking that Markey Fresh track produced by 45 King. Not heard it before but going to seek that out.

  • Archive notes: "I've dated it May 94 based on the tracks Flex played (being on the same tape I've assumed they're from the same period) Could be earlier but he drops PE 'Give It Up' which came out in July and that's also on the Flex show which is mostly joints released in May-June. Red never seems to speak on his shows and there's no commercial breaks so not much else to go on unfortunately." - DJ Step One
