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…
In an interview on HuffPost Live, rapper/actor Nelly told host Marc Lamont Hill that he still has ill feelings toward the Spelman College protestors who boycotted his 2004 bone marrow drive in protest to his sexually charged “Tip Drill” video.
The drive was planned in hopes of helping his sister, Jackie Donahue, find a match. Unfortunately no match was ever found and Jackie succumbed to leukemia in 2005.
Although it’s been a little more than 8 years since the ordeal, Nelly made it clear that he still feels angry. When asked what he would’ve done differently Nelly had this to say “The Spelman thing, the only thing I feel I would’ve done differently is kick somebody’s ass. That’s just how it felt to me, Pimp,” he told Hill. “I don’t have my sister and I doubt it if half of those girls are still campaigning for what they quote, unquote took advantage of that opportunity for.”
“You [protesters] robbed me of a opportunity. Unfairly, my brother. Because we could’ve still had your conversation after I got my opportunity. It could’ve been somebody that was coming to that bone marrow drive that day, that was possibly a match for my sister. That didn’t come because of that.”
Superstar athletes unite! ESPN has reported that King James and soccer icon David Beckham are in the early stages of possibly bringing a major league soccer team to South Florida.
Many weren’t aware that James has an ownership stake with Liverpool (English Premier League) and he has always followed the sport closely during the NBA offseason.
“There’s some interest in both sides,” James said Monday of his talks with Beckham, who has attended several Miami Heat games in recent seasons. “David has become a good friend of mine over the last few years, and I think it would be great for this city to have a football club for sure.”The MLS had a franchise in South Florida from 1998-2001, but the Fusion folded after playing in Ft. Lauderdale. James insisted Monday that the discussions are preliminary and haven’t advanced past the “some open dialogues.”"The research is still being made out, but I think it can be huge,” said James, a four-time league MVP and two-time champion. “But you never know. I think this is a great town for soccer. There are a lot of soccer players here. There is a lot of great youth soccer here.”
Oprah Winfrey sat down with BBC’s Will Gompertz and detailed how no one is above the racism that still exists in this world today … not even the President of the United States, Barack Obama.
“There’s a level of disrespect for the office that occurs in some cases and maybe even many cases because he’s African American,” she said, according to The New York Daily News. “There’s no question about that. And it’s the kind of thing no one ever says, but everybody’s thinking it.”
George Zimmerman has been arrested in Orlando, FL after allegedly attacking his pregnant girlfriend (Not his wife......girlfriend). Zimmerman got physical with his girlfriend earlier today, who claimed she was pregnant.Since she’s pregnant, we’re told the domestic violence charge is automatically listed as a felony. The Seminole County Sheriff’s website says Zimmerman is not eligible for bail.

Days after posting a video on YouTube where he called out former labelmates Baby, Lil Wayne and Mannie Fresh, New Orleans rapper Turk has clarified comments he made in the nearly two-minute long video. Turk says he doesn’t have any beef with the artists he mentioned and is instead focused on his own career.
“Nobody contacted me,” Turk said. “A lot of the bloggers they changed the title and tried to make it like I called ‘em out and I was beefing with ‘em. It wasn’t none of that. It just was a—me just expressing how I felt about the situation. You know like we brothers, you know what I’m saying? I just, man, something just told me just make the tape. And I ain’t did it for no publicity or nothing. I just, I wanted them to see. I wanted them to see. I wanted the world to see what it really was and what it really wasn’t. A whole lot of stuff, man, I hold in and I don’t talk about it, I don’t expose it, but I felt like that was the last straw. And somebody other than me needed to know how his family is. And his family is dysfunctional. And a lot of people’s hopes are up high about a Hot Boy reunion. About this, about that, a lot of people have been misguided…I want everybody to know that it ain’t no beef. I still got love for them brothers. I’m just moving forward without them. I’m doing me now…It’s no longer a Hot Boy reunion. Not in my eyesight. That ain’t gonna even happen.”
