Radio One Urban Oldies WPPZ (Classix 107.9)/Philadelphia announced the return of market legend Lady B to afternoon drive.
“Classix 107.9 FM plays R&B from the ’70s & ’80s — the perfect mix of music for both Lady B and Philly,” said PD Jay Dixon. “Afternoons is where Lady B shines.  Philly radio grew up on Lady B. We’re so happy to have her back in this timeslot — bridging music, the community and people, every weekday from 2-7pm. With her team, DJ Touchtone and Roxi Fab, Lady B is like medicine for the soul.” Lady B will continue to host her popular Basement Party mix with DJ Touchtone on Friday and Saturday nights.
Ezio Torres, Station Manager of Radio One Philadelphia, remarked, “I’m thrilled to have the excitement of Lady B and DJ Touchtone and all that the show brings to Classix back in HER daypart. After a tough day, this will be the PM drive show to put you in a great mood in the afternoon and for your ride home.”
Lady B famously broke a ton of rap artists when she hosted The Street Beat on WUSL (Power 99) until 1989. After a stint with SiriusXM in New York, Lady B returned to Philly, working at Radio One Urban AC WRNB until December 2017. Commenting on her triumphant return to Radio One, Lady B said, “I am more than thrilled to be going back to my original time slot on the radio! I love entertaining my folks while they are in their cars! So, please join me every day, Monday through Friday from 2-7pm, with the Basement Party on Classix 107.9. We’re BACK!” Lady B replaces Dyana Williams, who exited during the company’s recent budget-related downsizing.
