Money Making Mike
I am Michael A. Lynton, "Nerdy by Nature" with many passions. Radio has always been high on the list from the first time my Father took me inside a radio station. I knew then this is something I would fully enjoy. Fast forward and I have since worked at almost every format and did shows with various genres ranging from Gospel to R & B, Classical to Jazz (Big Band and Smooth Jazz), and Reggae to Rock. My Radio Experience was all at home in the Virgin Islands, FM99, WGOD, WJKC and Power 93.5 with Doug Harris who had the biggest influence on both my professionalism and perfecting my talent. Doug was my Jedi Master. I’m a lover of helping small business increase revenue by providing web solutions that work. I am frequently acquiring new skill sets avoiding stagnation while increasing a relative knowledge base.In addition, I am an active Content Creator in a world of Virtual Visionaries for Artistic Architects.
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 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.
I Love Radio, and in doing so, I attended ATS broadcasting school in N.Y.C. where I'm originally from. I earned my 1st class engineering license that lead to on air broadcasting. I've worked for various stations in the Virgin Islands WSTA Lucky 13,WRRA,WSTX 97X, FM99. I've also produced radio talk segments called Jazz Talk with artists who performed in the Virgin Islands. "What a great job for me". Working in radio also elevated my talents to do commercial voice over work at WSVI T.V. channel 8, and WTJX T.V.
My 1st Class FCC license enabled me to work as a Lighting and Sound technician at some of the biggest amphitheaters on both St.Thomas and St.Croix. I was able to set up the lighting and sound systems for Legendary artists such as the late Nancy Wilson, Third World, The Mighty Sparrow, and Jon Lucien where a lot of fans didn't know he was from the Virgin Islands." I'm now back in the craft that I love and miss so much" and honored to be apart of the rnb103 family.

The story "WWV/WWVH Stand Ready to Fight
Global Chaos" mentioned mass solar ejections.
In the late 1960s and early 1970s this "sun-storm"
began to peak interfere with shortwave communications
in the worst way. I remember I could hardly hear W WV
with my shortwave receiver.
At 12 years old I became a ham radio operator,
WA2BQM but the activity by the sun discouraged me
because I couldn't hear with my home-built equipment. I
no longer found it fun to "work" the 80, 75, 40, 20, 15 and
10 meter amateur radio frequencies with code or voice.
I left off amateur radio but with a love for radio and
electronics, and I have managed to have a great career as a New York radio person-
ality on major stations in the New York tri-state area. In 1982 1 produced, from my
home studio, a weekly international radio syndicated show, "Jazz From the City,"
and since 2005 1 have held down the morning show on Sirius/XM Channel #49,

I was able to pursue this path because of the technical training I received in my young days as a teen ham radio operator. Please read my story in Newsday at https:// tinyurl.com/rw-spiderwebb and learn who took the time with a neighbor's son to teach a little guy to pur-
sue what became a lifelong love of radio. I also appreciated the Sept. 2 issue featuring Black engi-neers Tobias Poole, David Antoine and Ben Hill. I too have many a cable," " wired and soldered many a wire," built many a radio and TV studio and antennas, including my home studio. So I well relate to the many challenges that they overcame and still maintained a love for
their work. "Right On." Thanks for your time. and 73s.
