The construction in the studio is just about finish, The equipment has been purchased, The engineer is preparing to start wiring, And my return to the airwaves is set for Memorial Day.It will be exactly one month from the breaching of my contract by KWAM and the arrival of wimpish Bennie Ferguson to a time slot that I had already kicked his ass in, And a time slot where that ass whupping will continue.
AM 1180 WPLX will also bring a first to Memphis radio, A all Blues format that airs the Blues 7 days a week and not just on Saturdays. The mixture of Soul Blues with traditional Blues and a touch of R&B that grown folk remember will make this new station the number 1 AM station within 6 months if not sooner.
The WPLX morning show will be hosted by two former WDIA employees, Captain Curtis Lee and Denise Dean. The Captain holds the record for the highest ratings in Memphis radio having a 22 share while at DIA. Also while at 103.5 The Captain had an 11 share on their Saturday morning Blues show. Denise Dean or Dean as most radio listeners call her will bring an exciting element to morning radio along with news tidbits and traffic. Dean also has the ability to do talk radio often doing the Bev Johnson Show on DIA, In fact many times more issue oriented then Johnson.
From 9-10 AM daily I will come on air to discuss issues and to give a taste of what I will be doing from 3-7pm in the afternoon. Yes now "The Thaddeus Matthews Show" will air 4 hours daily with the same no holds barred controversial conversation. There will be no change in my style or approach in fact I will be hitting very hard during this political season. I will continue to get involved in issues in the city and fight for those causes that the so called mainstream media refuses to investigate or report.
So to you haters you make have thought it was safe but its not, Republicans you may have thought that you had a free reign with that wimp Benita Ferguson fighting your cause,But you don't Im back and I will be kicking some old ass and looking for some new.
