Dyana Williams of 100.3 WRNB On Air at 96.3 WHUR Back in the Day

Check out this aircheck of on-air personality Dyana Williams of 100.3 WRNB. Dyana shared this bit of radio history with us from one of her first jobs in radio. She was hired by the legendary Bob "Nighthawk" Terry, the PD of 96.3 WHUR at the time. Dyana hosted the evening program as Ebony Moonbeams on the station.

The show predates 'The Original Quiet Storm' that was hosted by Melvin Lindsay on WHUR which began in 1976. That show's title of course is duplicated today throughout the country. The essence of that program began with this evening show. 

Dyana Williams moved on to her hometown New York and WBLS in 1975 and transitioned to Philadelphia's WDAS FM in 1980 where she became more than an on-air personality. Her work outside of radio as a leader in the music industry has made her one of the foremost advocates and curators of our Culture of African American music in the country.

You can listen to Dyana and her co-host Derrick Sampson on 100.3 WRNB each Sunday for 'Soulful Sunday' from 10:00 a.m. to 3 p.m.

More news...On Sunday 107.5 WBLS weekend host LaDawn Black announced she was moving on to a new opportunity and leaving the station. Black made a surprise return to radio this week at her old stomping grounds as a guest host on The AM Clique Morning Show this week on 92Q (WERQ-FM Baltimore). LaDawn hosted the very popular night show 'The Love Zone' until 2013 when she moved over to sister Adult R&B station Magic 95.9 as midday host.

iHeart's Power 99 (WUSL-FM Philadelphia) midday host Cappuchino exits the station. She's been with the station since 2012. 'Way Up with Angela Yee' is now heard on Power 99 as one of the 30 affiliates that carry the syndicated program across the country.

Questlove went to Instagram to celebrate the word “jawn” being recognized as an official word in the Merriam-Webster Dictionary. The dialectic term is native to his hometown. In Philadelphia and Eastern PA, “jawn” evolved as a variant of “joint,” originally denoting a place. “Jawn” has been used to describe almost anything that one need not or cannot give a specific name to. Suddenly jawn has become not cool to use.
