Radio One Philadelphia, in partnership with the City of Philadelphia and the Hip Hop Library will honor Philly radio legend and hip-hop pioneer Wendy “Lady B” Clark, afternoon personality on Urban Oldies WPPZ (Classix 107.9) by renaming a local street in her honor. On Saturday, August 13, in recognition of Lady B’s 40 years of contributions to radio and the hip-hop culture, the City of Philadelphia will proudly rebrand the 5700 Block of Wyndale Avenue as “Lady B Way.”

“Wyndale Ave. was always ‘Lady B’s Street!'” said Lee Daniels, Academy Award-winning director/writer/producer and lifelong friend of Lady B. He added, ‘Congrats little sister, so proud, love, Lee Daniels.'” Colby Tyner, VP of Programming for Urban One, stated, “Lady B is an icon in Philly. She was one of the reasons I wanted to be on the radio and I interned under her when I was 17. This honor is well earned and deserved.”

Ezio Torres, VP/GM of Radio One Philadelphia remarked, “Lady B and I go waayy back (I’m not allowed to say how far). So, while many in Philly, the music biz and around the globe know her as an icon, I’m lucky enough to know her as one of the most giving and emotional people I have ever met. If there is someone out there that needs a helping hand, she rallies everyone she knows to make a difference to lift up that person. I mean, yes, she is a superstar and knows more about music than most others in the business but that’s because she knows the artist, the producer, and the story behind the song. I’m so excited for Lady B to get a street named in her honor and in HER neighborhood!”

Jay Dixon, Operations Director of Radio One Philadelphia, said, “Lady B has done so much for our city and is someone who genuinely cares about people. Naming a street in her honor is well deserved and we hope the whole city comes out to show her love on this day and you know it’s going to be a ‘basement style’ celebration!”

The public is invited to join the ceremony, which will happen live on Saturday, August 13 at 12pm at the 5700 Block of Wyndale Avenue in Philadelphia.
