They featured me in the latest issue of "Style"
read this article that was niccce. (i didnt say that part about "poor and forgotten" though)
So much of the music on the radio is stale and boring! We can all connect with "the rest of" the world on WRIR .. Since Jan 1, 2005 we've been on the air... Finally, the clouds have parted .. oh thank heaven
WRIR- non commercial, non profit,
community based, r a d i o for the rest of us...

dj carlito inna dancehall stylee. Posted by Hello
tough crowd-im an idealistic dj who's obsessed with music. I might be still learning how to read a crowd...( seems that one is expected to buy the GREATEST HITS compilations for gigs like wedding parties or 5 star hotel crowds - this a holiday party for the 5 star hotel i used to work for... also one of my first paid gigs.. a pretty tough crowd too.. so i guess i earned it, and learned some things too )
