Conversations' Cyrus Webb Hosts Project Recognizing Yazoo City Radio Legends

On Saturday, September 9th Yazoo City’s own WYAD Max 94.1 FM will celebrate its 3rd anniversary on the air with a special presentation recognizing Yazoo Legends in Radio that paved the way for the DJs of today.

The brainchild of Joseph C. Thomas, Sr. of Bountiful Blessings Broadcasting, Inc, (Elizabeth W. Thomas, President), the project “Celebrating the History of Black DJs in Yazoo City” honors the contributions of trailblazers in radio that influenced radio and music in Yazoo City and throughout the state.

The project “Celebrating the History of Black DJs in Yazoo City” is narrated and Executive-Produced by media personality and Mississippi native Cyrus Webb. It includes exclusive interviews with Eddie “Ace” Smith, Vanassa Conston, Bobby Little, Randy “Wild Man” Brown, George Winford, John “Mighty J” Meeks, Frank “Scrap Iron” Robinson, Leroy Davis and tributes to the late Kenzie Moore (with his brother Sidney Lloyd) as well as the late Sharron Johnson Reed (with her sister Addie Tart) who was a longtime female DJ in Yazoo City.  Eddie “Ace” Smith served as Project Manager for the project and assisted in setting up the interviews.

The honorees will be recognized on Saturday September 9th in Yazoo City when WYAD Max FM 94.1 FM celebrates its anniversary, but the interviews with these distinguished individuals can be heard here:

The “Celebrating the History of Black DJs in Yazoo City” project is sponsored by WYAD 94.1 FM, the Mississippi Humanities Council through a grant from the Mississippi Development Authority and the National Endowment for the Humanities as well as The Yazoo County Convention and Visitors Bureau.
