TaMorris Pettway (Brother T) is an Alabama native. As a teenager Brother T fueled his musical passion by becoming a DJ. From that experience Brother T learned to blend music in a way that others would enjoy. Blessed with an ear for the right sound, a career in radio seemed the most logical progression. “Rather than play music in limited spaces, I figured it would be better to share the good news with the whole world through the use of a broader network, internet radio,” Brother T says.
Brother T is committed to community efforts, serving in various volunteer positions to assist young people and others in need. For two years he poured into the lives of young people at his local Boys and Girls Club, where he taught character-building skills. His love of music and his passion for people led to the creation of a broadcast platform that seeks to get the listener’s day started on a positive note.

The internet station has a diverse line-up that includes The Independent Showcase with Wanda P, Brotha Live, The Mark Gungor Show, The Afternoon Praise Party with Kevin James, children’s programming and much more.
