Fatin Dantzler and Aja Graydon, the husband and wife R&B/Soul duo known as Kindred the Family Soul went to Instagram to voice their displeasure at urban radio.  Kindred recently performed a free outdoor community concert along with Jazmine Sullivan and a few other Philly based artists. 

The one thing that makes their rant ring true is the fact that three radio stations (Hot 107.9, Old School 100.3, and Praise 103.9) set up promotional tents at the event. Radio One therefore were able to promote their stations at this community event sponsored by a local politician. So we can feel the displeasure that the duo feels when they report that the stations don’t play music from their newest album or didn’t even grant them an interview at any of the stations. The other urban music stations in Philly are owned by Clear Channel. Between the two companies they own six stations targeted to the African American community. Their hit ‘Far Away’ of course is still a favorite with many of the listeners of those six stations. (WPHI, WRNB, WPZE, WUSL, WDAS FM and AM)
