“This is an idea of mine that’s been a long time coming,” says April. “Independent artists from all the arts have never had one place to showcase their art, whether it’s music or poetry, and I intend to give them that. It’s going to be an exciting show to tune into anytime and hear a variety of entertainment and also valuable information for artists they can’t hear anywhere else.”
Streaming around the clock, WAGTiradio.com will showcase independent artists’ music and spoken word. Additionally, WAGTiradio.com will have a live interview segment every weekday evening from 7PM – 8PM EST with guests ranging from well known jazz, pop, hip hop, R&B and world music artists to music producers, authors, DJ’s and industry experts providing an insight into the independent artists careers as well as individuals with specific expertise in business, marketing and social media networking for the benefit of artists and listeners. Programming weekdays will be devoted to jazz / R&B and weekends to world music, Caribbean and electronica with folk and gospel music maintaining consistent play throughout.
WAGTi Radio’s debut interview on March 17 at 7PM will feature Brian O’Neal, noted jazz musician, composer, producer and philanthropist who has shared the stage with such music icons as Stevie Wonder, George Duke and India Arie with some surprise guests for following segments including Herbert Holler, DJ, producer, promoter and founder of New York City’s #1 longest running Friday night party for the past 7 years The Freedom Party, will be April’s guest on March 19. Former guests on April Sims A&E Radio have been hip hop icons such as Mele Mel, Kurtis Blow and MC Serch to Grammy Award Winning singer Thelma Houston, GRAMMY nominee and 8 time Native American Music Awards winner Jana Mashonee and best-selling author William R. Patterson.
