Halfway through a 2 hour mix on Sunday, Stess and I were alerted to news that legendary RnB artist Teena Marie had passed away. Not expecting to have to do a tribute mix on the fly, I was completely unprepared, but we tried to do something to pay respect to her memory by playing the tracks I did have, alongside some by her mentor Rick James.
This past weekend, my brother Stess The Emcee sat down with DJ Brandi Garcia, and chatted with her about her beginnings as a DJ in Tallahassee, and her opinions on the issues between Houston radio station 97.9 The Box, and artist Trae The Truth, which resulted in her leaving her position at that station.
DITC every Sunday 8-10pm EST on Blazin’ 102.3. Classic Hiphop and R’n’B in the mix for 2 hours every week.
DJ A to the L
Diggin’ In The Crates, live on Blazin’ 102.3 (12/12/10)
