Wade-O hits the NYC Airwaves

Yep, it's official. DJ Wade-O is hitting the airwaves in NYC and the surrounding area. My man's still going to continue the podcast and now just has a broader, more local platform for the newness.

And best believe your humble blogger is tagging right along to that gravy train with expanded commentary via the Holy Hip Hop News Blast segments on the Wade-O Show.

I'm proud for my big homie and encourage you to lift him in prayer as he takes on this new challenge.

Details from the presser:

Newark, NJ - The power and favor of Jesus the Christ is taking DJ Wade-O’s podcast, “The Wade-O Radio Show,” to a new level. On Saturday, November 1, the show will debut as a syndicated FM Radio program to a potential 6.5 million listeners in the NYC/NJ Metro area, not to mention those across the nation that will take advantage of the station’s online streaming capabilities and those that are already accustomed to hearing Wade-O via the Internet.

The Wade-O Radio Show will broadcast from 11 PM to 1 AM every Saturday evening on WRDR The Bridge FM. The Bridge simulcasts live online at as well as over the following frequencies in the Greater New York City Metropolitan Area:

• 103.1 FM in NYC and Northern NJ

• 89.7 FM in Monmouth / Ocean Counties, NJ

• 99.7 FM in Sullivan County, NY

• 94.3 FM in Pomona, NY

• 98.9 FM in Poughkeepsie, NY

Currently, The Bridge broadcasts Holy Hip Hop Pioneer DJ Floyd Cray’s ground-breaking “Gospel Vibrations” show from 11 PM to 1 AM every Saturday. The combination of the already built-in listener base from “Gospel Vibrations” and the present following of “The Wade-O Radio Show” podcast should present a sizeable audience for ministries, businesses, and advertisers seeking to target the coveted 16-40 years of age demographic set in the NYC/ Northern New Jersey Metro Area.

“I’m very excited about this opportunity,” DJ Wade-O said. “I started the Wade-O Radio Show Podcast with the intent of ministering to my friends through music and interviews and am grateful that I have been able to maintain the original mission the Lord gave me as I have made new friends all around the world.

“The show has grown to have listeners in nearly every state in the U.S. as well in countries like Canada, Kenya, Ghana, the U.K., and even Australia. I’m really looking forward to serving the New York and New Jersey markets and continuing the work of my predecessor, Floyd Cray. I hope this encourages all of my peers who are doing podcasts to keep pressing. We can get our shows placed on FM Radio!”

The syndicated version of The Wade-O Radio Show will continue to include exclusive music, artist interviews, holy hip hop news and commentary by Christian hip hop writer/columnist Sketch the Journalist, special segments, new label and artist information, and special giveaways to listeners.

The new broadcast will be used to give the radio audience the first chance to hear the popular radio show before it will be available for free podcast download the following Sunday.

The debut on-air show, Saturday, November 1, will be a “Best Of” show featuring clips and highlights from the past year. With a large archive of interviews from industry movers and shakers such as Tonex, Rockwilder, Dorinda Clark-Cole, Lecrae, Bushwick Bill, Da T.R.U.T.H., KJ-52, Trip Lee, Canton Jones, Corey Red, J.J. Hairston from Youthful Praise, and others, this will certainly serve as a dynamic show to launch the program.

Upcoming guests on The Wade-O Radio Show will include the Stellar award nominated group Frontlynaz, U.K Sensation Dwayne Trumpf, and Stellar award nominee, graphic design artist and co-owner Aziz “Zee” Peregrino-Briman of Bezworks Design.

If you are interested in partnering with DJ Wade-O to continue to bring Christian Hip Hop to FM radio outlets, please contact Albee Beutel of the Kingdom Minded Group at 212-203-4400 ext. 101 or email
