On schedule and on cue since the passing of the Late Great Mr. Magic, Funk Flex and the Kool Dj Red Alert defy current radio rules and take us back to the essence of it all! Flex and Red have dedicated this time of year to the remembrance of the man who is the reason they even have jobs, John Rivas b.k.a. Mr Magic. The Christmas Eve mix is a history lesson to say the least, Flex and Red give honor and praise to Hip-hop legends long forgotten, they even give back drops to classic songs and the real credits are read by memory from each. It is the enthusiasm of two forty plus year old men having a good time reliving their childhood in front of the world that keeps us tuned in annually. I have been listening to Mr. Magic, Chuck Chillout, Red Alert and Funk Flex since the eighties and each Christmas Eve mix they do today excites just as much as the first time I pushed play on that cassette back then.
Oh yeah peep the retweet from the Koolest dj! (don’t test my Hip-Hop knowledge)
