De De coming

Saga’s Milwaukee Radio Group picks up DeDe in the Morning on Urban AC WJMR (Jammin’ 98.3)/Milwaukee, starting at 5am on Monday, July 30. The newly syndicated show stars DeDe McGuire and is based at Service Urban KKDA (K104)/Dallas. “My show is unique because it offers more of the female perspective with female hosts in the driver and passenger seats,” said McGuire.
Jammin’ 98.3 personality Andrea Williams will continue as the local co-host of the morning show, contributing news, traffic and weather.
WJMR Brand Manager Don Black remarked, “DeDe brings relatability, a female point of view and a unique and fresh style of entertainment. We’re excited at the energy she’ll bring to mornings on Jammin’ 98.3.” Annmarie Topel, President/GM of Milwaukee Radio Group, added, “Sometimes you just know when something feels right. That’s how we instantly felt when we first listened to DeDe in the Morning. She’s what we’ve been looking for.”

The Made in America festival is a multicultural platform that represents strength, freedom of speech, and perseverance for artists and music lovers. Philadelphia, an iconic city, represents those ideals. The location is integral to the pulse of the festival. The [Benjamin Franklin] Parkway is a cultural arts center that is symbolic to the more than 600 artists who have performed at this event. The Parkway captures the freedom and spirit of inclusivity that drew us to the City of Brotherly Love. The celebratory nature and essence of this festival has inspired locals as well as visitors from across the nation to enjoy Labor Day in Philadelphia.

 We are disappointed that the mayor of the city of Philadelphia would evict us from the heart of the city, through a media outlet, without a sit-down meeting, notice, dialogue, or proper communication. It signifies zero appreciation for what Made In America has built alongside the phenomenal citizens of this city. In fact, this administration immediately greeted us with a legal letter trying to stop the 2018 event.

Will Smith is teaming up with Japan’s World Cup soccer star Keisuke Honda to launch an investment fund this month, with the aim of raising $100 million of Japanese money and investing in U.S. startups.

The Hollywood actor, who performed the FIFA World Cup song “Live It Up” at the final of the tournament in Moscow on July 15, also sang Honda’s praises at a pre-match press conference.

“You know who else I like? Keisuke Honda. We have a little bit of a relationship. Keisuke is the truth. I like his heart. He is a really authentic, good dude,” said Smith in response to a question about his favorite players.

The two reportedly got to know each other through the Japanese player’s management company Honda Estilo, which lists both Smith and his son Jaden as talent on its website.

Honda and Smith are to use their personal connections to look for unicorns (unlisted companies worth $1 billion or more) to invest in, while Japanese financial giant Nomura will help with raising funds.

Investments will not be restricted to the sports and entertainment sectors, with Honda and Smith expected to personally interview some potential investees, according to the Nikkei Japanese business daily.

Honda aims to “build bridges between Japanese investors and overseas businesses,” wrote the Nikkei.

Smith has made multiple investments, including through his Overbrook Entertainment production company, while Honda has been an angel investor in various ventures.

Honda, 32, retired from international football after the World Cup, after coming off the bench to score Japan’s equalizer against Senegal, helping the Samurai Blue qualify for the knockout stages. As well as scoring 37 goals for Japan, his club career took him to AC Milan and CSKA Moscow. He’s played for Mexico’s FC Pachuca since last year.

It’s a wonderful and riveting feeling to discover a new band by total accident. After a throwback spin of the 2006 classic “Vans” by The Pack on Spotify, the following song which played due to alphabetical order was “Star Catcher” by Vansire. But the surprise didn’t end after hearing this gem from the Minnesota  duo. The sound of this track alone was so mesmerizing that it was only right for me to listen to their 2018 sophomore project Angel Youth from start to finish.

Personality Lorenzo Thomas of Celebrity Page TV and Live from the MIA Radio caught up the cast of The Bobby Brown Story at the American Black Film Festival on South Beach and was reunited with Bobby Brown in the SiriusXM booth at the Essence Festival in New Orleans. It would be an understatement to say Lorenzo has been busy.

Flyte-Tyme-06

An unassuming cream-yellow building in Edina was home to the hottest sounds in America in the late ’80s, and now it’s slated for demolition. Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis ran their Flyte Tyme Studios there for 15 years, from when they moved to Edina from a smaller Minneapolis studio in 1988 until they left in 2003 and moved out to L.A.

The building served as a school for many of the intervening years, and it just reopened as a rentable studio space in January. Jason Miller, who manages the facility now known as Runway Studios, said that he and the studio owners (Richard McCalley and Matt Hanson) always knew the building could be sold and redeveloped at any time.

“At least we get to take the building and go out with a bang,” he said this morning, standing in one of the studios’ control rooms. “Celebrate it, make people aware of it. I think it’s cool that we have this time. There’s going to be about a year’s worth of more memories, more projects. We’ve been having some parties.” Read more from The Current.
