BROOKLYN ALEXANDER A small-town girl with a down-home flavor. A GA peach who loves all types of music, lives for the open road, a member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated, and an Atlanta Falcons fan, win or lose, through and through. My broadcast career has afforded me the wonderful opportunities to work in a variety of markets and formats, from country western in GA, jazz and R&B in North Augusta, R&B on the beaches of Charleston, SC, old school in the ATL, gospel, R&B, rock and classic oldies in the scenic vistas of Chattanooga, TN. But by far the most interesting was broadcasting for a radio station located in a trailer in a field owned by the legendary God Father of Soul, the incomparable James Brown! Photography. Promotions. Production. These are my passions. Spending middays with you on RNB103 makes my heart smile. See you on the radio! Remember, in all things, as the iconic poet Rumi says… “Let the beauty of what you love be what you do!”

Dj Chips

DJ Chips aka The Electric God, is an iconic DJ legend hailing from Brooklyn, New York. The beginning of Chips'
musical journey was his interest in audio sound systems in his late teens. He began his career in 1972, when his
friends alongside himself formed the first DJ group, The Grandmasters. He developed his DJ skills, picking up tricks
of the trade from other up and coming DJ's.
After the Grandmasters dissolved, Chips changed the name to FANTASIA in 1974. FANTASIA's debut was at the
legendary Jimmy's Jazz Club on 33rd West 52nd St. The original FANTASIA members were DJ Chips, Kool DJ
Dee, and Larry B filling out the MC role. After Kool Dee left to pursue a solo act, FANTASIA added Jimmy G-The
Everything Man and Action Jackson, Chief Engineer and architect of the FANTASIA sound system.
"The Electric God" title was given to him by one of his crew members, who observed how Chips was able to

electrify the crowd through the manipulation of the vast FANTASIA sound. Chips had total control of the sub-bass,midrange and highs, which resulted in the record sounding more hype than what it was. His smooth blend of funk,rock, R&B,and Jazz was an award-winning formula. Chips was known to be consistent at every gig for keeping thecrowds dancing.DJ Chips has performed with most of the premier DJs of that era: Grandmaster Flowers, Plummer, Pete DJ Jones,Ras Maboya, Dagger, Smith Bros, QJ Simpson, App Electrified Sounds, and Nu Sounds. These are all iconicnames of the many great DJ's hailing from Brooklyn, NY. Chip's held his own and proved why he is one of the bestand originals in the creation of Hip Hop.An epic moment in history was the battle against Brooklyn DJ icon Grandmaster Flowers. Highly respected, Chipsbelieves Flowers is the real Godfather of early hip hop and was honoured to have had the privilege of performingwith him. Chips and FANTASIA crew helped usher in the growing trend of Hip Hop. DJ Chips' last major gig withFANTASIA was at a venue with icons Love Bug Starski, Kool DJ Dee and DJ Hollywood at The Down Beat.All good things must come to an end and FANTASIA disbanded in 1980. Chips went on to pursue other interestsbut his passion, accomplishments and love of Hip Hop left him curious. He wanted to explore the real origins of HipHop and was brought back into the fold. He created a website devoted to the real origins of Hip Hop and uploadedhis event flyers, historical information and photographs from his time with FANTASIA. This sparked interest outsidethe United States and the Brooklyn Legend was reborn.DJ Chips has been interviewed twice from writers in Poland. One of his interviews is featured in Perth, Australia'sfirst hip hop magazine named Out Of Necessity. It was the launching of this magazine that brought DJ Chips out ofretirement, for a lecture in Australia and numerous other interviews with Albert Gaszowski (Old Schoolers Crew),Kylie De Vos (Rappfox), DJ Veeness (Australia) and Prime Minister Pete Nice of the Kool Rap duo 3rd BASS. Asalute and recognition of his history was a feature in the Italian and Middle East versions of ESQUIRE magazineand featured on radio stations RTRFM 92.1FM and Radio Fremantle 107.9FM.He has performed internationally in Perth and Melbourne, Australia and in the US including the annual West IndianDay Parade on Eastern Parkway in Crown Heights, Brooklyn.With Chips' knowledge of music and how to move a crowd, he is the epitome of Hip Hop culture — The DJ.

azz from the City (1985 - present)[edit] Though Ken “Spider” Webb will always treasure R&B classics like Barbara Lewis’ “Hello, Stranger” and The Fifth Dimension’s “One Less Bell to Answer,” he has also always loved jazz. “My mother and father were musical people,” he says. “They didn’t play, but they liked to listen to music. My mother and I would listen to music and see if we could distinguish the various instruments. Can you separate the violin in this piece here? Or the bass in this piece here? You start that and you begin to appreciate it.” But Webb’s love of jazz went beyond that. “Jazz, in the days when I grew to appreciate it, you dressed well,” he says. “You had to walk around with your wingtip cordovan shoes and horn-rimmed glasses. You had to be about something. You had to be somebody. You had to be going to school. You had to have a nice car. You couldn’t be like a hood or the girls wouldn’t want to talk to you. You couldn’t get to first base on a bunt.” It was that love of jazz that made Webb start his own company in 1985 to bring the music around the world with his show “Jazz from the City,” which he still occasionally records and archives on his website, kenwebb.com. “I started a global syndication company from studio in Wheatley Heights,” he says, “At one time, we had 136 stations in United States, Japan, the Philippines.” “A

“Fast Frankie” is a nickname stemming from my time in the drum and Bugle corps activity in which I spent a large portion of my life as a performer, teacher and percussion arranger. Growing up in Brooklyn NY and being part of a family filled with varied musical tastes, I was exposed to many different genres of music which was only heightened as I continued my life's journey. I was very fortunate during my time in the world of  pageantry to have performed and worked alongside some extremely knowledgeable musical minds from who I gained a ton of knowledge while being fortunate enough to be a part of 9 overall World Championships, including 7 percussion titles and winning 3 world championship snare drumming titles.  All of these great things led to my induction into the World Drumcorps Hall of Fame in 2007. I also had the incredible experience of having a couple of my original compositions played on the field of competition. 

My musical influences span from Count Basie, Nat King Cole, Max Roach, Miles Davis and Ella all the way through to Rakim, Biggie, Dr Dre and beyond. I could probably fill up a page with the names that have influenced what I do. I would, however, be remiss if I didn't especially mention Chick Corea (RIP), Herbie Hancock and Billy Cobham who hold a particularly special place in my musical heart,

I am honored to be part of the RNB 103,net family and my hope is that my music will bring a smile to your face, make you tap your feet or want to get on up and shake your groove thing
