Since going on the air in 1973, WRFG has filled a void on the Atlanta airwaves. WRFG was the first Atlanta radio station since the 1950s to feature such regional musical forms as blues, bluegrass and jazz. Reflecting Atlanta's emergence as an "international city", it pioneered programming oriented toward the area's growing Latin, African, Asian and Caribbean communities. WRFG was the first station to carry live broadcasts from the Arts Festival of Atlanta and the Georgia Grassroots Festival. WRFG's achievements extend beyond music alone. WRFG produced live broadcasts of speakers at the Hungry Club, Atlanta's famous weekly interracial forum. It was the first and only radio station to air the work of local poets, playwrights and authors on a regular basis. WRFG has also initiated programming directed toward Atlanta's neighborhoods, the disabled, alternative lifestyles, and other special audiences. Its in-depth coverage of event such as the 1987 rebellion at the Atlanta Federal Penitentiary has received widespread acclaim.
WRFG's documentaries merit special attention. Between 1977 and 1980, WRFG produced the 50-part "Living Atlanta!' series on Atlanta's history. "Living Atlanta!' won national awards and established a tradition of documentary excellence at WRFG. In the fall of 1989, the University of Georgia Press published a book based on this award-winning series.

Mo Diggidy's first musical experience came in the summer of '95 when he visited his dad in the state of Louisiana. Diggidy was a natural on the drums. When he returned to Atlanta the following school year, his dreams of the drums were shattered. When Diggidy hit the 6th grade he thought he would join the school band but the drums were already taken. He then decided to join the school orchestra and quickly learned the Bass Viol.
For 2 years he played the 6 foot bass instrument before attending Towers High School in the 8th grade where he learned to play tuba, baritone and trombone.
9th Grade school year Diggidy moves to Louisiana to live with his father where he has the opportunity to pick up the drum sticks again. By 11th grade he was also dabbling around with the piano as well.
After high school graduation, there was no music..None at all..It wasn't until his 21st birthday that he received a gift that would change his life forever..A boxed version of Fruity Loops (now known as FL Studio).
Mo Diggidy has spent the last 9-10 years in a basement on Glenwood in Decatur, Ga perfecting his craft. He's finally getting the recognition that he deserves for the work that he's put in.
My love for music began at a very young age. I recall listening to my father’s records when only five. My father gave me my first component system. I was 10 then. Dad probably did so because he was tired of me monopolizing his stereo all the time.
Around the age of 11, my father bought me a drum set. As time progressed word of my skills with sticks traveled. After getting pretty good I started playing in a couple of bands with a few friends; one Rock, the other R&B. I loved playing drums to Rock, known as Classic Rock today; R&B and Pop favorites.
I enjoyed music so much, as artists introduced genres, I would consume myself with mastering the top songs. Around 1981 D.C. Go-Go emerged as the hottest sound on the scene. I had those beats down. I could not wait to get to the concerts. Rap-music emerged on to the music scene and quickly grew to popularity.
The next level of music exposure, thus natural transition was spinning the “wheels of steel”. I remember being captivated watching Run DMC perform his lyrics while DJ Jam Master Jay worked it out on the turntables. From that point, I was convinced that I wanted to become a DJ. I had found my calling....so I thought.
A few years later, Christmas 1987, I secured my first Gemini turntables complement by my first from Radio Shack mixer. I practiced scratching and mixing every day, hours at a time. I soon began performing at small house parties for friends and family to hone my craft. Igniting the crowd pumped me up. I got off on the dancing, the noise, the excitement...DJ Danny T came to be!
Another one of my early ventures involved starting a rap group with one of the young guys in my neighborhood. Like everyone else with the dream of rap fame and fortune, I traveled back and forth to NYC, buying records, equipment, learning beats and styles from New York. We went on to perform at various talent shows. We were committed to getting into the Hip Hop business. After realizing I may have to put that dream on the shelf, I refocused my energy and love of music to help others.
My new hobby and talent were born. I built a home studio then started producing music for local R&B and Rappers who were trying to get their first break. That’s when I started Wheels of Steel Productions. A few years later, I started my mobile DJ business while splitting time DJ’ing in clubs.
Today, many years later, my hobby and love of music has become a business that I share with my wife Sandi. She brings her electric personality as the company's MC at weddings, large parties, cabarets, and corporate events. She leaves the kids’ gigs to me. My wife says she’s a mom first. Therefore some dances are a little too racy for her. (haha) Overall, we have a great time together and with our clients. We are grateful for the opportunity to share our talents and expertise with your companies, families, and friends.
Queens-bred hip-hop/soul artist, Dynasty, has the soul of a dreamer and the fearless determination to follow that dream wherever it might lead. D.Y. has lit up stages opening for Erykah Badu, The Wu-Tang Clan, Mos Def, Talib Kweli and more. She amazes and captivates crowds. Her performance on records and on the stage truly sets her apart.
Never caught up in writing "formula rap" as she calls it, Dynasty writes from the heart and at the same time, remains a beast on the mic. She has surely made a name for herself, turning heads all over the world. In fact, the legendary DJ Premier gave her the ultimate cosign by producing a song for her. "Epic Dynasty" was placed on his compilation album, Get Used to Us. He even appears alongside D.Y. in the video for the song. Dynasty set off 2013 with a career high, releasing a song and video with one of her favorite artists, world renowned Talib Kweli, Stay Shinin'.
All of these things considered, one of her most favorite things is performing for and working with youth. She frequently visits juvenile detention centers and other programs to speak with teens about following their dreams. One can certainly see that in 2013, the DREAMPUSHER that we know as Ya Girl D.Y. is reaching the heights that she envisioned as a kid. With a seven-city Dreampusher Tour in Germany, followed by an album release, an East Coast tour (US) and another European tour at the end of the year...there is absolutely no denying this star.
Dynasty's passion transcends the stage. There is no "set demographic" for D.Y., no gimmick, no crafted agenda aside from making beautiful music. Her mass appeal transcends all boundaries. Rightfully so, soul music touches the world
