Kool DJ Red Alert - Radio Mix 98.7 KISS FM (Circa 1987)


DJ Mars tells it best:

And now for the moment you all have been waiting for. This weeks download comes
from the most influential dj in hip hop history...KOOL DJ RED ALERT. You may be
asking youself what does Red Alert have to do with mixtapes. Well in the 80's
you weren't in the loop if you didn't have a tape of Red Alerts show from 98.7
kiss fm. I'm originally from Springfield Mass,and everyone in Springfield has a
cousin from New York. Dubbed copies of Red's show would end up in Springfield
two days after the actual live airing.

What made Red's show so dope? Why was he so important to Hip Hop radio? Maybe
because he supported some of the biggest names in Hip Hop(BOOGIE DOWN
Or maybe because he had more flavor than a pack of now and laters. You couldn't
front on Red's personality,his drops were dope and he had custom made songs that
ended up becoming underground classics(BAIT//ULTRAMAGNETIC MC'S & THE TR 808 IS
COMING//BDP). All in all Red is to Hip Hop radio as Micheal Jordan is to
basketball. Argue with me if you want but no dj means more to hip hop radio the
KOOL DJ RED ALERT. Download now and thank me later.

Word is bond, Lord!! Red

Word is bond, Lord!! Red Alert is a pioneer of this rap shit!! U must be at least 35 though to appreciate him. What makes his mixes especially hot is whatever song he is playing, he would have the artist biggin him up(Red Alert). All while he is mixing. Hip-hop in it's truest form. ONE
