Radio Daze....... Afronerd visits KISS FM, NY

It looks like it's going to be wall to wall Afronerd Radio broadcasting for the next few days folks. First up, I'm scheduled to make an appearance on 98.7 KISS (NY) tomorrow on James Mtume's Open Line program. It's a fairly popular show helmed by radio veterans Mtume, Bob Slade and Bob Pickett. Open Line is a "live" call in show (2 hours) which airs on Sunday mornings beginning at 10 a.m. to 12 noon and it available in the NY Tri-state region. Anyone grounded in musical history should be familiar with Mtume-his work with Miles Davis, his lineage (Jazz greats-the Heath Brothers), musical director of the famed police drama-NY Undercover and of course his years as an artist (Juicy Fruit, anyone?) so try to stay tuned for the 11 o'clock (am) hour. We will be discussing of all things the Black blogosphere. And as an added treat, check out Mr. Mtume's past handiwork (water drum solo) in the above Miles Davis Youtube clip.

Next up, later on in the afternoon, we're back on schedule for Afronerd Radio's Week in Review (7pm eastern) to discuss Reverend Jackson's Obama footinmouth disorder, the sounding "Black" phenomenon and if time permits we will discuss the latest review of Dr. John McWhorter's All About the Beat: Why Hiphop Can’t Save Black America. So give us a call "live" at-646-915-9620 or via email/IM-afronerdradio@yahoo.

Afronerd Radio's Week in Review

And lastly, there's Comic Shoppe radio for this Monday at 7pm eastern. Join Max, Daryll and I as we discuss the red elephant in the room, this weekend's release of Hellboy 2: The Golden Army. In addition we will also cover Hancock, last week's favorite graphic novel reads and our all-time top five comic book translated to animated efforts. And you can also call us at-646-200-0104 or email-thecomicshoppe@yahoo. Imperius Rex...true believers!
