Renita has been an avid listener and supporter of WFDU 89.1 for over 15 years. During this time she has attended most radio-related functions held in the community and surrounding towns always nearby the famous WFDU tent. I enjoy the retro format as this is the music I grew up listening to. I am proud to be a volunteer on the station answering the telephones and taking song requests during Tony Smith’s Pop Lock-it Soul Sock-It Retro Soul Radio show. I enjoy Interacting with the callers who are just as enthusiastic as the music heard on WFDU 89.1. I believe that “ all things on earth shall fade under the sky, music alone shall live and never die.”
My format of Rhythm and Blues and Soul music allows me to share with the audience some of the music I love. I enjoy the musical time - travel offered by commercial-free Retro Radio. It is truly a journey of exploration and re-living music performed by some of the Pioneers of this genre. Music is a catalyst to bring back the joy, happiness and sometimes pain for healing and continued peace. Let’s take a respite from the events and challenges of today with music.
