DJ Andy Smith Lockdown tape digitising Vol 9 - Kool DJ Red Alert Kiss FM NYC 1991

DJ Andy Smith Lockdown tape digitising Vol 9 - Kool DJ Red Alert Kiss FM NYC 1991

Chart positions

This show was 5th in the global old school hip hop chart, 31st in the global rap chart and 91st in the global hip hop chart.

Well we are all on lockdown so I decided to digitise my personal tape cassette collection!

I used to record tapes like these off the radio as often as I could to listen to them for the duration of the week, then do another cassette the following weekend (no 24 hour stations playing what you wanted back then - well not in Portishead - the place). Luckily I never taped over them so have hundreds still.

This is Kool DJ Red alert alongside Prince Messiah & Yvonne Mobley with the New York City Kiss FM rap show from 1991. Not sure where I got this or who I copied it from but its great to hear again! Golden days of Hip Hop for sure.

Anyway, enjoy!

Man I really do miss when I used to listen to 98.7 Kiss FM on Saturday nights . I used to put one of my speakers outside the front door and be bumping it!

Killer mix.

Lovely. Got a few of these myself. Got quite a few Mr Magic Rap attacks taped in New York. The Westwood Capital Radio tapes from the same period are also a great listen. Half of the stuff he played 'upfront' never got released and it's wonderful.
