Powerhouse Radio contest

for all the delicious details. Good luck!

2) Music News: The Legacy of Jam Master Jay

I didn't know Jason Mizell, Jam Master Jay personally, but like millions of other fans, I was impressed with the truly pioneering efforts of his group, Run-D.M.C.

In 1986, while working at WUSL FM, Philadelphia PA, (Power99 FM), I got the opportunity along with the other dj's at the station, to see Jay, Darryl "DMC" McDaniels, and Joe "Run" Simmons at the height of Run-D.M.C. mania.

They headlined a show at the Philadelphia Spectrum, along with Whodini, and the Beastie Boys. Needless to say, Run-D.M.C. electrified the audience. Their raps were fluid, fun, and fresh...definitely rated G by today's standards. The multi-racial crowd that packed the Spectrum that night loved their music.

The "Raising Hell" music collection was a monster in 1986, and I remember one month in particular where you could not go through a Power99 FM on-air shift without playing "Peter Piper," "It's Tricky," and "My Adidas."

I grew up in Saint Albans, Queens, New York City, which is right next door to Hollis, Queens, where Jam Master Jay was shot and killed in his recording studio, Wednesday evening, October 30th, 2002.

He'll be missed. Our prayers are with his family and friends.


3) Don't Forget to Vote

All USA listeners over 18. Vote for the candidates of your choice on Election Day, Tuesday, November 5th.

4) Whitney Houston & Bobby Brown Watch

What does it say about my personality, that the last two times I've bought the National Enquirer, Whitney Houston just happened to be on the cover? OK, that's why I bought it.

By the way, this week on Powerhouse Radio, you can catch a vintage recording by her mother, Cissy, singing "Tomorrow," from the Broadway play, "Annie," in a very special set full of sunshine.

Back to the business at hand. Whitney's official website has posted this message. We are reprinting it here as a public service:

"If you are a true Whitney Houston fan, you will not download what some are saying is Whitney's new album across the Internet.

This is not the complete or finished album! Look forward to the release of Whitney's next album, Just Whitney, in-stores November 26!"
