Hip-Hop Pioneer Yvette Money along with Ken Mansfield are ready to start internet radio's evolution by changing the predominantly unpredictable format. Wanting to be more creative while previously hosting her own 2 hour show she set out with her partner/producer Mansfield to develop a station where a predictable host and schedule could be creative everyday giving the audience the predictability of normal radio without the censorship. Developing Evolve Radio 24/7 from scratch they are ready with a line up for morning & afternoon shows and some original ideas also. Honored to be apart of Evolve Radio 24/7, we will be introducing the hosts/DJ's individually this week leading to the launch on April 13th at 6 AM. But first We wanted you to hear Yvette Money and Ken's plan for the station's format straight from the creators themselves.
The Bee : Is this station going to be geared towards any particular age group or sound?
Yvette Money - We are going to cater to everyone. Of course we are going to play Hip-Hop, R&B, and Jazz. We are even working to bring Latin music on. We are dedicating 4 hours to the D.J.'s. They already have sets and are featured on other shows but our host K.D. will be giving them their own platform. We will also have a place for unsigned hype. There are artist out there not being heard, and we want to give them a place where they can connect with A&R's. Eventually we will be creating a slot for Reggae. Teens will also have a voice here with our Saturday show 'Peer Pressure', We want no one left out!
The Bee : What do you think is missing from internet radio's dynamic today?
Yvette Money - Growth. We just had so many ideas, we decided to do our own thing. We agreed to disagree with my old station but we new it was time to move on.
Ken - We wanted to give people quality. Most shows deal in quantity. Internet based stations are busy trying to build their revenue base. They are selling time to anybody. They put themselves in a position where the audience comes across 1 or 2 wrong shows and it can be enough to turn them away forever from a station.
Yvette Money - With my show before we didn't know who came on before or after us or if there was anyone on at all! This is why having a format is crucial for a station to succeed. With selling a show here and there an audience never knows who they are going to hear. You have to give them some consistency so they'll know what to expect.
The Bee : So you are shooting for the consistency of regular radio with the creativity of internet radio?
Yvette Money - Yes! That's why formatting is crucial to growing your audience. If you have regular followers you may get a new listener for a show because they were waiting for their favorite show to come on at 10. Sometimes you may hear something you really like but the show would only last 3 weeks. We want to promote Evolve Radio 24/7. We want to promote all the hosts as a family.
Ken - I have a music background, an IT background. I used to have my own record label. That with Yvette's entertainment background and all of the ideas we have in common, we just want to jump out there and do it how we feel it should be done! *

Half-Japanese and half African-American, 20 year old Miss Nagasaki Ariana Miyamoto, is the first-ever mixed-race Miss Universe Japan and is facing criticism for not being Japanese enough. In Japan the tipical standard of beauty is pure white skin. "I want to tell the world, even a half-Japanese can represent Japan," Miyamoto says. Competing in the Miss Universe pageant in January she faces adversity as many feel that she does not look Japenese.
In America we've already have come a long way and in some instances paved our own lane to our define beauty, be it on T.V., magazines, or movies. I understand every country or group of people moves at its own pace but she's diversifying the standard of beauty in Japan just as many have struggled to do in America or the world. I wish her luck on her road to Miss Universe even though she's already earned her place in history!

Wowwww. Yeah, the young'ns have their twerking now... but they get nowhere near as hot as Adina Howard got 'em when she was really doing it. EVERYTHING was hotter in the Golden Era. Even the sexy songs. Now, we have a documentary to take us all there and back.
"Adina Howard 20: A Story of Sexual Liberation" shares Adina's story through her own words as well as the impact that she made during the 1990s and thereafter through the thoughts of fellow entertainers, educators, feminists, family and fans.
The film gives an intellectual look into the inside of the highs and lows of the life a platinum selling artist, whose work has made a lasting impact despite the polarizing feelings towards her.
Adina speaks on her relationship with Tupac Shakur, the banning of her music video from BET, landing a cameo role in the movie "Waiting to Exhale," her encounter with legendary vocalist Nancy Wilson, working with Hollywood giants Jackie Chan and Jamie Foxx and the sudden halt to her stardom due to her comments about record exec Sylvia Rhone.
Watch the extended trailer above. Looks very interesting.
