The Michigan Front Page-WHO’Z HOT N DA STREETZ

WHO’Z HOT N DA STREETZ (June,26th,2009)
The Michigan Front Page
By Moe Nitty

“ZONE RADIO: For The People, By The People”

One of the biggest reasons many new acts fail to make it far from the starting block is their lack of knowledge to take advantage of the useful resources right in front of them.  Any seasoned recording artist will tell you that making the song is the easy, but getting it heard by the masses has proven to be much more difficult than many anticipate.  But for local hip-hop/rap artists on Detroit’s west side, it doesn’t have to be.  Airplay, and more importantly, vast exposure for serious artists is no more than a phone call away as The Zone Radio station in Dearborn welcomes any and all dedicated hip-hop artists with the opportunity to be heard over the radio.

Two names that every local artist in Detroit needs to get real familiar with: Shawn “Origix” Featherston and Tim “DC” Patterson.  Why?  Well, for over 7 years, dating back to their first show on April 20th of 2002, Origix and DC have been and continue to be a reliable ally to Detroit’s music scene.  As co-hosts of The Zone Radio, broadcasted on WHFR 89.3 fm, Origix (the station’s voice) and DC (the station’s deejay) have showcased local talent from Michigan & beyond, exposing independent talent worldwide across the globe.  When asked about the origin of The Zone Radio’s humble start, Origix replied, “Our main reason for starting the show was to expose all the good Detroit music we came up on…on a larger scale”.

Airing live every Saturday night from 8pm-12am, The Zone Radio features a new guest every week, whom they interview, play a variety of the featured artists’ songs, as well as a live in-studio performance from the featured guest.  Since their start, The Zone Radio has interviewed artists such as Bizzy Bone of Bones Thugs-N-Harmony, Yukmouth, Cypress Hill, Tech N9ne, Moe Nitty, Trick Trick, Slug Of Atmosphere, Stretch Money, Black Milk, Guilty Simpson, and Psychopathic Record’s Twiztid to name a few.

For those tired of hearing the same old eight songs on the radio (I know I am), each week The Zone Radio plays new and exclusive music from major artists as well as upcoming locals and Indies.  With no pre-arranged playlist and free range to play whatever they feel (as long as it’s clean), requests from listeners of The Zone Radio are almost always honored.  “What local artists have to understand is, unlike the bigger stations, which will spin your song for listeners looking to hear Top 40 music (hardly paying your song any attention), our listeners tune in to hear breaking ‘local’ music!”, states Origix.  For those listeners looking to hear the uncut version of their favorite underground song, The Zone Radio offers 2RAW4FM.com, an online radio show in an uncensored format catering to underground hip-hop from the Midwest.

The biggest excuse I hear from victims of missed opportunities is “I didn’t know”.  Well, that can no longer be a valid reason for not taking advantage of The Zone Radio’s open door policy for dedicated hip-hop artists.  Now you know!

Feel free to submit material by mail The Zone Radio (Attn: Origix), 5101 Evergreen Rd., Dearborn, MI. 48128, at Henry Ford Community College.  To request your favorite hip-hop song, call 313-845-9676 while airing.  The Zone Radio is also streamed live every Saturday from 8pm-2am at www.whfr.com.  Also, download 2RAW4FM Vol. 8 for free at 2RAW4FM.com.  For more updates and info go to myspace.com/thezoneradio.
