The Taste of WVON 2012

This past Saturday, 7/21 was the date for the annual WVON “Taste of WVON”. ┬áThere was food in abundance, great discussions at the WVON broadcast booth and great music. The first musical artist I saw was a little lady named Mae Ya. She is all of eleven years old and has a voice that is beyond her years. She will be performing at the DuSable on November 10th, go see her. Next was Nellie “Tiger” Travis, she was a blues ball of fire on stage. Nellie did some good Tina Turner while she was up. Later in the evening the Kindred Family Soul came on to much anticipation. They did not disappoint as some of the following photos will attest to. They made no secret of the fact that they are man and wife, I liked that as much as their performance. Enough of the talking, here go the photos.



The first NASCAR licensed African American woman driver was in town last week. Her name is Tia Norfleet. Tia stopped WVON 1690AM to introduce herself to Chicago and the world. I am looking forward to seeing Tia push that Ford around the track, so come back here and look for further information or go to Tia’s website. VROOOOM!!
