COMMENTS:

Darrly says: Ellis Blake, southern soul artist, has a song called Troubled Waters on Brimstone that he really likes.

Cecily says: She likes TLC featuring Snoop Dogg, and she is sad that DJ Khaled didn’t get added this week but Darryl says we can do it next week. (Which is probably the only reason Lil Wayne will slip onto our playlist.)

Tori says: We’re looking for promo product as we celebrate WZZA’s 45th anniversary. Labels please hook us up. Thanks. Cecily and Darryl did the playlist this week. I’m so proud of them. T. Honey Brown has a great song!
Moment of silence for D. Cherie Lofton – a very nice lady I met when I did radio in North Carolina and later when she asked me to participate in a music panel discussion for her students. She will be missed. Much love to ya’ll. Be safe and take time to reach out to your folks while you can. Happy Mother’s Day to all the mommas. Tori
