First of all, thanx for another successful year for A FUNK ABOVE THE REST radio show. You listeners and supporters are the reason this show has grown into a large audience! Look for more exciting things to happen in 2010!

Well how is everyone? Thank you again so much for your support! 2009 has been a busy, progressive year for A Funk Above The Rest! We were featured on Channel 9 News in february, given an official endorsement by Motown-Universal Music Enterprises, Funky Town Grooves out of London England and The Arkiteks Music group sponsored by McDonalds for support and giveaway's of CDz/DVDz on the "live" broadcast. Due to our support of independent artists, I was picked to be a judge for the R&B portion of songs nominated in the "Independent Music Awards." www.independentmusicawards.com
I have also been invited to attend The L.A.Music Awards Show Nov 12 as a guest of Aysha, who is gaining more and more attention on a major national and international level. We are proud to have exposed her to our faithful audience. www.myspace.com/ayshamusic
The year 2010 will bring even more to the show. We will introduce a new segment called "funk it or junk it" as well as recognize "youths who make a difference" in our schools and communities! Yes, we are the show with a "local feel but international appeal!"
Thank you so much for helping to make it all happen! U R truly appreciated!

The award-winning show (Best of Westword 2008) "The 1ST School of Funk" continues its series at Jazz@Jacks every Tuesday night from 8-11pm. The program is hosted by KUVO radio personality Skip The Funktologist, whose music show "A Funk Above The Rest", can be heard Saturday nights from 11pm-1am right here on jazz89 KUVO (89.3FM). Due to the show's popularity, it is now syndicated on both terrestrial and internet stations in New York, Orlando, Los Angeles and Atlanta. The show certainly fills a void not heard on urban radio R&B programming. Stop by for a night of great music and dancing - with acts such as Soul School, Terry Black, Jameelah, and The James Douglass Show - to name a few!

I will be shooting a series of commercial spots with Colours TV in support of "A Funk Above The Rest" Music Radio Show. The spots will be called, Colours TV Trivia Moment. The 1st 10 correct responses to our questions will received a free cd from our catalog of music, from independent artists! Look for the spots to air early in July.
Since our last news item, so much has happened. Once again, I want to express my sincere thanx and appreciation for those of you who support, KUVO Jazz Radio 89.3 and the music show, "A Funk Above The Rest"! Because of our strong interest in exposing Independent Artists, Colours TV has recognized that there is a tremendous void in giving these deserving artists a larger audience. So with their support, we have signed on to do a 1/2 hour program to be called, A Funk Above The Rest Presents: "The Independent Artist Showcase"! We hope to air our 1st show in late November. So please stay on the lookout for it on Dish Network Channel 9407. Time slot is yet to be determined.
