Press Release: 

On Saturday, September 9th Yazoo City’s own WYAD Max 94.1 FM will celebrate its 3rd anniversary on the air with a special presentation recognizing Yazoo Legends in Radio that paved the way for the DJs of today.

The brainchild of Joseph C. Thomas, Sr. of Bountiful Blessings Broadcasting, Inc, (Elizabeth W. Thomas, President), the project “Celebrating the History of Black DJs in Yazoo City” honors the contributions of trailblazers in radio that influenced radio and music in Yazoo City and throughout the state.

This special celebration will be held on Saturday, September 9th beginning at 5 p.m. at Mt. Vernon MB Church, located at 137 W. Canal St. in Yazoo City, MS. The project “Celebrating the History of Black DJs in Yazoo City” is narrated and Executive-Produced by media personality Cyrus Webb, a Mississippi native. It includes exclusive interviews with Eddie “Ace” Smith, Vanassa Conston, Bobby Little, Randy “Wild Man” Brown, George Winford, John “Mighty J” Meeks, Frank “Scrap Iron” Robinson and tributes to the late Kenzie Moore (with his brother Sidney Lloyd) as well as the late Sharron Johnson Reed (with her sister Addie Tart) for being a longtime female DJ in Yazoo City. Eddie “Ace” Smith served as Project Manager for the project and assisted in setting up the interviews.

The “Celebrating the History of Black DJs in Yazoo City” project is sponsored by WYAD Max FM 94.1 FM, the Mississippi Humanities Council through a grant from the Mississippi Development Authority and the National Endowment for the Humanities, and the Yazoo County Convention and Visitors Bureau.
