For years, NYC radio fans have been listening to Little Red’s voice on the radio introducing his pop’s show. Most people have no idea how old he is because the intro was recorded when he was kid.

I shot this for a 12-inch single and it was the first time that I’d actually seen this particular type of styling. I think Dapper Dan might have made these jackets. They didn’t have a stylist. They just turned up in this stuff. This is what they decided to wear, just outrageously fabulous. This stuff is not retouched.
