An upbeat delivery, rhyming patter, a flair for showmanship and am incredible knowledge of music. That's Moonman! Born in Florence, South Carolina, Moonman started in the radio business at hometown 540 WYNN in Florence.
Eager to make the major markets, Moonman segued his act to Wilmington, North Carolina for a stint at WKLM. He then landed in Charlotte at WGIV. Moonman headed north to Richmond to handle Afternoon Drive at WIKI. One year later, the Moonman landed at WUST in Washington D.C. only to turn around and take up residence at WLOK in Memphis. Finally, he moved to Washington's WOOK where he stayed for 5 years. During those years, WOOK and WOL battled for Soul supremacy in the District.
Moonman decided to go west to the Motor City for a gig at WJLB in Detroit. After 3 years, it was back to the Eastern Seaboard and Baltimore for a shift at then James Brown owned 1360 WEBB. For 12 years, Moonman served up late-day soul to thousands of Baltimore's homeward-bound commuters. In 1985, the Moonman headed back to Washington and WOL. He's still there today.
The owners of WOL (Radio One) purchased WSID in Baltimore and renamed it 1010 AM WOLB. Thus Moonman was heard in two markets at the same time. Briefly, Moonman added to his busy schedule, a weeknight show at Oldies 1230 WITH. In addition to his radio career, Moonman has also worked extensively in television.
His first TV show, 'Soul of the City', was later known as 'The Dance Connection'. It is still on the air today...one of TV's longest running dance shows, nationally and internationally syndicated and seen in over 100 markets. Moonman has over the years also promoted concerts...written, produced and directed feature films and commercials...and many young and talented DJ's who came up under his mentorship are some of today's radio stars.
Today Moonman’s Soul Radio & TV network expands from Philadelphia to the DC Metropolitan area. He seeks to 'bring adult personality to the internet from the golden era'.
Moonman loves to entertain people, and his love for others is reflected in his life philosophy. 'Be kind to the people you meet on the way up, because they could be the same ones that you meet on the way down'.
