Upcoming Broadcasts

Jazz guitarist Dee Brown returns with a new release called Brown Sugar, Honey Coated Love on Innervision Records. Foundationally inspired by Proverbs 27:7 which says, ?a satisfied soul loathes the honeycomb, but to a hungry soul every bitter thing is sweet.? By the time he founded the group Foreplay, Jazz guitarist Dee Brown was already a polished artist, earning a solid reputation playing venues in Detroit. Foreplay drew the attention of producer Quincy Jones but Brown branched out in a different direction. Brown formed the group One Wish, whose style was patterned after Boyz II Men and Silk. The trio released its first album on the TRC record label titled I Feel Like Getting Romantic. The single Tell Me Why became One Wish's first top 100 recording in the Rhythm and Blues category. The group was also nominated for a Nashville music award, and Tell Me Why won the award for the Best Single by a Local Artist at the Metro Times Detroit Music Awards.
