Best known as the straight white DJ who replaced Tee Scott at the black gay club Better Days, Bruce Forest discusses his DJ career with Bill Brewster. He claims to be one of the first DJs in New York City to play house music after he received a copy of  JM Silk’s “Music is the Key” from Steve “Silk” Hurley in early 1984, whom he was introduced to by his girlfriend of the time, Lesley Doyle a few months earlier. Bruce also shares his memories of DJing alongside David Cole playing on the keyboard.
