What a nice “big shout-out” on the radio!

July 23, 2014

Dynamite Double DJs
Ifé [Ee-Fay] Dancy, a.k.a. Miss I.D., who works with DJ Max Jerome

The Show – On The Radio with Ifé & Max Jerome”
on WBAI 99.5 FM /

separatorThey play “Old and New School R&B, House, Disco Classics,
Funk, Soul, and Hip Hop, with a mix of commentary.”


I’ve been having a lot of late Tuesday nights, lately–
they’re on from midnight until 3:00 a.m. (Wednesday morning)–
and I groove to the music, and comment on their Facebook page, etc.

So, the other morning [July 16, 2014] I reminded them of where we met. And saw no text in response.

Well, here’s what Ifé said (about me!)
on the air…!

And I don’t even think that I ever told her my “brand” name–
“Mr. Hospitality”–but she sure remembered me,
so I do believe that she knows who I am!

I would love to (have a) party with them, in real life, again. You can, too. For bookings, call 862.216.6108…
