American comedian Chris Rock's mother is back behind the microphone on her own radio show after taking time off to recuperate from triple bypass surgery.

ROSE ROCK, a former pre-school teacher, hosts THE MOM SHOW on South Carolina's WWXM-FM in Myrtle Beach, where she spins top 40 hits and discusses a range of topics including sex and dating.

One of her children, daughter ANDI, helps out on the show.

Rose adds, "She decided a long time ago that she wanted to be the next OPRAH.
