Don’t forget to check out this past Saturday’s edition of my radio show #UPFRONT. My special guests included celebrity health and wellness expert A.D. Dolphin. He was in the studio to discuss DHerbs, his work with Steve Harvey, Hollywood’s latest obsession with plant-based diets and more.

#UPFRONT also talked to Marietta’s New Theatre in the Square’s Raul Thomas along with director Nic Starr. The two stopped by the studios this week to chat about the company’s new production of “Smokey Joe’s Café,” which is playing now through October 22.

Closing out the show was my exclusive interview with Atlanta-based dancer and choreographer Juel D. Lane. He has a new work that will be making its Atlanta premiere as part of the Ailey II engagement at the Rialto Center for the Arts on October 21. Juel also opened up about his time with Atlanta’s acclaimed Freddie Hendricks Youth Ensemble and more.

We also played music from the legendary George Benson along with H.E.R. and throwback sounds from Erykah Badu.

 #UPFRONT Inside Atlanta Entertainment Industry is a 30-minute radio magazine that features one-on-one interviews with all of the major players and behind-the-scenes superstars that make Georgia the new “Entertainment Capital.” It airs every Saturday morning at 9 a.m. on Jazz 91.9 WCLK.
