Youngblood and Saturday Morning's "Spotlight Gold" Exits Kiss 104.1

Youngblood, the popular radio host of "Spotlight Gold," the Saturday morning R&B oldies show on Kiss 104.1 has exited the R&B station. His show aired from 7am to 12 noon.

He had been on Atlanta radio for over three decades.

Listeners of Youngblood have expressed outrage at his dismissal at Kiss 104.1 on his Facebook Fan page. There has been a petition launched calling for his show to return to the airwaves.

Youngblood had been previously fired from Kiss 104.1 in 2011. But due to demands by listeners he was brought back.

    2. OMG!!! Outrageous!! I moved to Atlanta fro NYC in 1983 and Youngblood’s show kept me grounded and in touch with the music I grew up on. FIVE........only FIVE hours a week, but it was some of the best hours of the week. Housework and Youngblood is synonymous!! Won’t be participating in 104.1. YOUNGBLOOD go to Steve Harvey!! Maybe...........🤷🏾‍♀️🤷🏾‍♀️🤷🏾‍♀️🥰🥰🥰

    5. I agree with you I look forward to listening to kiss 104 on Saturday mornings, only one difference though. This the second time he's been dismissed from the station, so obviously there is something wrong with this station, I would rather see him go to another local station and I will follow!

  7. Hopefully, radio stations will begin to realize that there is more to radio than just the music selection. Radio hosts are just as important. Right now I might as well just listen to a Playlist with no host at all. Youngblood is a radio personality which made his show so flavorful. Please bring him back. He's someone that speaks the language of the seasoned listener. The older population It's really hard to find anything that targets our preferences. Bring Youngblood back.

  10. I'm a trucker from Charlotte and listening to Youngblood on Saturday mornings was a ritual for me. Never met the man, but on Saturdays he was my copilot!!!

  11. We need YoungBlood back!!! He played music that you don’t hear everyday!!! The music that is being played now on Saturday mornings you can hear it during the weekday! It’s just not the same! Please bring him back! Kiss 104.1 Nobody does it like YoungBlood! 🥰😩

  12. I am done... I will no longer listen to this station. No Youngblood...Yes Trump What The Hell is going on in the‘A’?

  13. I'm gone. I turned on Solid Gold this morning (Saturday October 17, 2020) on my way to the grocery store and heard somebody else, and immediately went "who the heck is that?!!!" Came home and Googled it. Didn't realize Youngblood was gone. So I'm gone too. Won't listen. Heads up folks at the station: it's not just about the music - the oldies, the solid gold - it's about what Youngblood brings too. Youngblood was the ONLY reason I listen to 104.1 Saturday mornings. Now I'm out. Don't know why y'all keep trippin.

  14. The only reason I listen to 104.1 is because of Youngblood. Bring him back.

  15. Youngblood made that show on Saturday mornings. As for me, Bye Bye Kiss 104.1. You are missed greatly Youngblood!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Kiss 104.1, I’ve heard of bad business decisions, you have made of the worst in radio history by not respecting your audience and genius of Youngblood. He was the heart of your Saturday morning broadcast. Thank you Youngblood, I’m looking to turning into your next show wherever it maybe on my radio dial!

  17. Youngblood's Spotlight Gold is a Saturday morning tradition in our household and has been for decades. Bring him back! Until then, we are done with Kiss 104.

  18. Like do many others, Youngblood was our EVERY SATURDAY morning guest. We listened, laughed, was informed and encouraged by him. He was the ONLY valuable asset that KISS 104.1 had left! I used to listen to the TJMS until you let him go, so Youngblood was all that was left for us mature listeners. Now there's no point in tuning in to your station. Like me, I'm sure many will find him on another station and tune in there. Good luck

  22. With Youngblood gone...I am out 104.1.

  23. Again, I am truly disappointed in Kiss 104. First with the TJMS, then when you let Art Terrel go and now with Youngblood. You just don't know your listeners!. I will be moving on now. Pandora, Sirus and music from my Ipod will be my go to. I am so glad I was able to download many of the songs Youngblood played on the radio. Youngblood, I will follow you no matter what radio station you join. They will be very lucky to have you and you know how to make us happy!

  24. I moved to Atlanta in '95 and has listened Kiss 104.1 and Youngblood ever since.However I will not listen the station if Youngblood is not doing Spotlight Gold.Please have some sense and bring him back.

  25. I’ve listened to Youngblood for over 30 years. Saturday mornings and his signature opening song by Isaac Hayes has been my ritual ever since I can remember. I used to set my alarm clock just to make sure I heard the beginning of the song. Did I have it bad? Oh please believe! I listened to all 5 hours every Saturday morning up until his signature last song by Brothers Johnson “Thunder thumbs and Lightning licks” To say I am one of Youngblood’s biggest fans is a understatement. His wit, his personality, he is Atlanta. No one like him. I hope he resurfaces on one of the other R&B stations in the city.

  26. Bring Youngblood back now.

  27. Bring Youngblood back ASAP!
    Or release him from his contract so he can go to another station.

  28. I been listening to Youngblood for along time !!!!!! Every Saturday morning. Just like soul train !!!!!

  29. I cannot believe that Kiss 104.1 FM has let Youngblood go. I wake up every Saturday morning to tune in to hear the beginning songs, his humor, and general talk. I love reminiscing about the songs in I listened to in college. Both my songs grew up on Youngblood on Saturday mornings. No none can replace the memories he provided. Youngblood was my motivation to clean my house every Saturday morning. I know that many of us, who are baby boomers love this music. I miss Art Terrell, Tom Joyner, and Sasha. I will not listen to KISS anymore I am hopeful that Youngblood will land at another station and take every Saturday morning listener with them. KISS needs to realize that listenership is what drives sponsorship and ads. That's call revenue!

  30. My Husband and I are white 70 years old and are longtime listeners of Youngblood. He made
    our Saturday mornings. His personality and the way he could make you could forget about
    the troubles you were facing at the time. His little stories of growing up were relatable
    and the music he played was just a bonus. We will not be faithful listeners after hearing of his departure. Remember the old saying, "If it ain't broke don't try to fix it."

  31. So so disappointed. Saturday mornings with Youngblood were so nostalgic for me. I turned the music up loud and danced,got my exercise and cleaning done. Really missing him. My Saturday morning regime, get up, turn on/he's not there, turn off. Missing him.He was the only reason I listened to your station once a week. PEACE!

  32. I learned this morning by googling why I haven’t heard Youngblood for the past few weeks. I turn on the radio on Saturday morning from 7 to 12 to listen to Youngblood. The listening experience without him isn’t enjoyable as it has been for the past 30 years. Please bring Youngblood back! We that love and listen to Youngblood identity with him. If he’s not coming back, I’ll have to change to another Atlanta Radio Station when I listen to radio. BRING YOUNGBLOOD BACK!!!!

  35. When I moved from Harlem to Atlanta in 2005 I was blessed to happen upon a show on Saturday mornings called spot light gold with Youngblood on 104.1. I was homesick for NY Dj’s Lenny Green, Felix Hernandez, The Chief Rocker Frankie Crocker and Sunday’s with Hal Jackson. Over the last few months Atlanta radio has let go some extremely Talented radio personalities. And now no Youngblood! C’Mon KISS pay the man. I wish the talent currently on air all the best but there is a certain way that Youngblood connects with radio generations that makes the 5 hours seem to go by so fast. Or maybe that’s it......Time is moving by fast and faster And thus change is necessary. As one famous DJ use to say “may you live to be 100 and me 100 minus a day so I won’t know lovely people like you have passed away.” And Youngblood ‘faster than a Double decker peanut butter sandwich.” Help me out Youngblood fans so I can get it right.
