B-Daht
Weekdays 6am - 10am
 

1. What City/State was Daht born in? St. Louis, Missouri

2. What's Daht's favorite City in the United States? Miami - but it's got to be South Beach

3. What was Daht's nickname in High School? 4 Eyes. Mr. Thick Glasses. I had THE thickest glasses in the WORLD - not just the State or Country, but the WORLD! Guiness Status.


So I was born in St. Louis, MO., the “Show Me” State. My mother married when I was 5 and by the age of 11 we had relocated to 4 different cities and about 6 different schools. We finally settled in Greensboro, NC where I attended Mendenhall Middle School and graduated from Grimsley High School in 1997.

I worked a variety of jobs for the next 3 years, ranging from: Sears Credit Central, McDonald’s, Sonic Drive-In, Wal-Mart, TRAC Solutions and other street entrepreneurial ventures. Several run ins with law enforcement, just a lot of rebellious acts. Then Mother, who was in her 2nd marriage, gave me an ultimatum:

“You will go to college, or you get your own place; either way, you have to get the hell out of my house!”

Still not wanting to “grow up”, I decided I’d just go to Winston Salem State University and THEY could baby-sit me for 4 years. The BEST decision I ever made. Going to college allowed me to meet people from all walks of life. I learned how to talk to all types of people, more importantly; I learned to listen to others. I also learned the importance of having a strong following, and I realized I was a funny guy. I began to host shows on campus, and pretty soon I was a very “known” person on campus – dubbing myself: “The Campus Celebrity”.

It was time to graduate from college. 6 years later, I had become a MAN. I knew entertaining is what I wanted to do with my life. I knew I HAD to make people laugh some kind of way, as my profession. I was doing stand-up from time to time, but it wasn’t my forte. I needed to do an internship in order to graduate from WSSU, so I applied for an intern position at 102 JAMZ. After a month in, I had made everyone in the building smile at least once. That was my goal; to familiarize myself with EVERY person in the building. Not just those responsible for hiring and firing- everyone.

You have to understand something: You’ll NEVER have to tell the person “hiring” how great of a person you are if he’s already been told by everyone around him.

On the Wild-Out Wake-Up Show the funny guy Amos Quick was moving on to The School Board, and there was a void in the “Funny Department”. Insert B Daht here. I introduced myself to the Triad through the Prank Phone Calls, using such characters as: Lil Prizin, Marquuus Pattin, Marcus Pattin Sr., Pimpin, Markis BGZ and other random ideas. They were a hit! Eventually B Daht was asked to stay on long term and I have been privileged to be an Employee for the People for 5 years now.

The Pranks have evolved to more characters: Joey Z’Gonna, Kubaht Kahn, & Slo Lil Boi Tell’Em. I’ve been on Maury, In Allhiphop.com, had the privilege of performing at SuperJam, Cast in a movie “Wigger”, and the ride doesn’t stop!! I appreciate the support of all the people that listen and have given me the privilege to entertain them over the years.

Hometown - New Brunswick, NJ – (732) what!!!!!!

Birthday – December, 28

I was raised on the streets of the cold pavement of New Brunswick, NJ. Life was crazy. I come from a two parent college educated home. Eventually I received a great offer in North Carolina to go to WSSU. I got wet up mad times on the yard by super aka soakers. I started doing radio on 90.5 at WSNC college radio doing odd jobs like getting donuts and sleeping around with co-eds. Ok maybe not the co-ed part but, I wanted to! College radio was so much fun, which was where I caught the bug. After getting my degree in mass communications I interned here at 102 JAMZ. Now real talk, I did some odd jobs I cannot mention because of the labor laws but, it paid off. In 1999 I left 102 Jamz to rock nites in the Gump aka Montgomery, AL until 2k and now I’m here 3-7 pm, Mon – Fri,  having way too much fun. Lol

Waleed
Weekdays 7pm - 12pm
 

Born in Brighton, England, on July 26 Waleed then lived in Beirut, Lebanon until eight years old. Then his parents brought his family to the U.S.

How Did You Get into Radio?
I got in radio when I was in college at Western Carolina, it was a show called the "Flipside" WWCU 90.5 from 7-10p.m. Then in the summer of 1998, I got an internship at 102 JAMZ with "Boogie D." My first time on 102 JAMZ was May 1999, since then I worked the mix show, overnights and now every night from 7pm to midnight.

From the 5 most wanted to making the station every night is an adventure, I will always put on for the Middle East aka NC, SC and VA!!!!

What is your vision for next 10 years?
I want to take everything to another level, I feel like 102 JAMZ has its own world and I want to bring my show to the world. I travel to a lot of cities throughout the year.   I think people in China, Australia, and India etc. should tune in and experience the night show movement! A lot of artists blow up here in the Triad first then go national. Music is important to me and I plan on topping the charts in the next few years nationally and internationally. It sounds crazy but people told me I would never make a living in radio or music in 1995 and now it’s 2009 and my dream is coming true!

How do you stay motivated every day?
Radio is everyday I feel like I'm blessed to be here.   I remember the days that I dreamed to be in the situation I'm in now. Now I dream of the situations that are coming, "inshallah"(god willing in Arabic). The question is would I do this for free? And the answer is of course! You have to love what you do because it is the only way to survive in radio. I really believe in my area, I know the Triad has the best talent and I have been given a chance to expose the talents from making the station, Friday Night Football, Middle East Car Show and people that listen and decide who the best is. No one knows the future. If you are outside our area then I ask you to listen at 7 online or whatever 7pm EST. is in your area. I thank you and if you have any more questions about me just Google me Waleed Coyote.......Ever Forward Never Backwards!!!!!!!!!

Story about my road to radio:
Well I started back in 1999; Wow that has been ten years! Anyway, I was at 90.1 WNAA on the campus of the greatest school ever, North Carolina A&T. I loved it there! I met a lot of people and artists. I would like to give a big thank you to Mr. Welborne, and D. Cherie for giving me an opportunity. I started 2-5pm on Tuesdays and Fridays, doing the Traffic Jam. That was fun! I could play whatever I wanted, and I could say ALMOST anything! Anyway, I met up with Terrance J, and he kept stressing me to give an air check to 102 JAMZ. An air check is mostly what you sound like on the air. I had to break it down for my non-radio people! I finally did it, and I gave it to the Music Director at the time. I am not going to say his name, but he said "I will never work commercial radio". I was like damn, but it just motivated me to work harder. I built up relationships with people at 102 JAMZ thanks in large part to Showdown. I met Kevin Kaous, J-Flex, Capital J, Kyle Santillian, Big Boy, Travis Bond, Rob Swynga, and of course Terrance J. Eventually I got a call from Kevin Kaous and he told me to put in another air check. Then Tap Money heard it, and gave me my shot. I started 102 JAMZ in 2001, and I have been here ever since. I love it!

Three Questions:

What do I like to do?
I love to watch movies, play video games, basketball, and hanging out with my friends.

What is cool about working for 102 JAMZ?
Everything! I mean, you never know who is going to call you when you are on the air. And you never know what is going to happen around here. Something is always happening, and it makes it fun.

Who would I like to meet?
Denzel Washington, Jay-z, Barack Obama, Spike Lee, Halle Berry, and Will Smith! To me, those are strong African Americans. In Radio I would love to meet Howard Stern, Mike Francesa, Star & Buc Wild, Angie Martinez, Wendy Williams, Russ Parr, and Ed Lover.
