Saturday Night Meltdown 10p-Midnight
At 14, most boys have their heads in the clouds and eyes on the girls. But it was at 14 years of age that Hot Sauce realized the early bird gets the worm, and the early hustler gets the dollar.
His career began in 1994 at the now defunct KLPL in Lake Providence, LA. While anyone would be impressed with an adolescent night jock, Hot Sauce wanted more. By 17, he was mastering the turntables, and was involved in everything around the radio station, from programming to production.
In 1997, Hot Sauce moved to New Orleans, where he was heavily influenced by jazz and blues. He continued to perfect his craft for two long years, then got a call to take over the airwaves in Monroe, LA. KRVV was the place where things really started to open up for Hot Sauce, and in no time, he was not only releasing regional mix tapes, but was the go-to DJ for just about every club and concert venue in the area.
Working his way across the country, Hot Sauce was transferred to Meridian, MS (WJXM) in 2002, then Dothan, AL in 2003 to do nights at WDBT, which has since changed formats. In Alabama, he earned the title “King of Nights,” and is most known for throwing his birthday party at an unknown club and letting everyone drink free. Wonder why the party was a success…
In September 2004, after receiving a call from Clear Channel, Hot Sauce “caught a midnight train” to Columbus, GA and began on-air duties for start-up station WBFA 101.3 The Beat. There he was the midday jock, Music Director, and had an award-winning mix show. It was also in Columbus that he was introduced to the Legion of Doom Record Breakers and the Core DJ’s.
Always looking for a bigger audience, Hot Sauce moved further east to North Carolina to do nights at WIKS 101.1. In the short time he was there, he made a huge impact; his show was Arbitron rated #1 in all demos, and no one will forget the love he showed to local and regional artists.
From there Hot Sauce brought his southern flavor back to Louisiana in 2007, to do nights in Shreveport for KMJJ. His “Local Artist Spotlight” guaranteed his place in Shreveport’s radio history; whether it was spinning it in his mix show or putting it on the countdown, if a local artist had a hot song, you heard it from Hot Sauce first. And his #1 ratings, numbers which tripled the competition’s, cannot be contested.
North Carolina missed Hot Sauce, and apparently the feeling was mutual. He was back doing nights at WIKS like he never left. Then he left, knowing he would never be replaced…
The Midwest was a different animal. As he adjusted to the cold weather he brought a little heat along with him to Milwaukee. He Handled night duties at V100.7 WKKV and rocked clubs on the weekends
You can currently hear Hot Sauce “Spicin’ up your nights” in Montgomery from 6-10pm on 105.7 WZHT. With his proven track record, all you need to do is sit back and listen…
Chris Brown checked himself in and out of jail in a matter of minutes on Monday, for charges stemming from his alleged hit-and-run case back in May.
According to Los Angeles Sheriff's Department records, Brown turned himself in at 2:40 p.m. at Van Nuys Valley Jail, and was released at 3:22 p.m. with no bail set. A rep for the singer noted that getting booked was the next necessary step in having a judge actually hear Brown's case.
"Two counts against Chris Brown were dismissed yesterday in relation to the Hit and Run charge to which Chris pleaded Not Guilty," Brown's rep said in a statement. "In order for the charge to be heard by a judge, Chris has to be officially booked. We expect this charge to be dismissed as well, as the lawyer for the driver in this case clearly specified that his client did not want to press charges."
It's not uncommon for Los Angeles residents booked on misdemeanor charges to be set free quickly based on their own recognizance, due to overcrowding in the L.A. jails. Lindsay Lohan, Paris Hilton, and Nicole Richie have all checked in and out just as fast in the past.
Brown now faces just one misdemeanor charge in the alleged hit-and-run case from May 21 — the actual charge of hit-and-run — to which he has pleaded "not guilty." The charges of driving without insurance and driving without a valid license were both dismissed.
Brown's attorney, Mark Geragos, told omg! that Chris has reached an agreement with Olga Kovalenko, the other driver involved in the incident, and that he's asking the judge to have this last charge dismissed as well.
On July 15, Brown had his probation (which stemmed from the 2009 beating of his ex-girlfriend, Rihanna) revoked due to the hit-and-run incident. He is due back in court on August 16 for a hearing regarding his probation.
And it looks like the media scrutiny and legal pressure may finally be getting to Chris. On Tuesday morning, he tweeted that he's planning to stop making albums soon:
Don't worry mainstream America.After this X album, it'll probably be my last album.— Chris Brown (@chrisbrown) August 6, 2013
Being famous is amazing when it's for ur music and talent. I'm tired of being famous for a mistake I made when i was 18. I'm cool & over it!— Chris Brown (@chrisbrown) August 6, 2013
Maybe just taking a break would be a better idea? The singer was photographed out late the night before his arrest. He was seen (pictured above) leaving AV nightclub in Hollywood at around 2 a.m.
Brown's next album, "X" is scheduled to drop on August 20. He recently released his latest single, "Love More," featuring Nicki Minaj.
