I’d like to thank our new affiliates, along with our existing ones–many who have been Slow Jammin’ with us now for over a decade, as incredible numbers continue to roll in. Our stations and listeners are what make it all worthwhile— It’s truly a team effort!”
Cat Thomas, Director of Programming, Entercom Austin, said: “R Dub! is the quintessential slow jams host. He connects with our listeners so well, you’d swear he was in Austin. Here’s to another 20, R Dub! Congratulations!”
Scott Dwyer, Program Director, KKUU-FM Palm Springs, said: “This is the second station I’ve had Sunday Night Slow Jams on. It was a no-brainer for us; amazing numbers and the listener passion level for Slow Jams is insane! Congrats on 20 years, R Dub! That’s amazing!”
