BJ Murphy

Since 1984 BJ Murphy has been behind the microphone. His life long aspiration has been to talk to people and entertain them and educate them in his own unique way. BJ Murphy is a beloved member of the State Of North Carolina, and well respected broadcaster in the radio industry. Born and raised in Goldsboro NC, from the 10th grade he knew he wanted a career in radio. At his home he built a makeshift radio station in his bedroom, where he would lock himself in for hours practicing on how to become a disc jockey. From there he attended Shaw University after graduation in 1983 and majored in Radio and Television.

While in college he worked at 3 radio stations at the same time and became popular in the Raleigh Durham market winning several awards. BJ always saw himself as being a big time morning DJ working in the big city. “I always saw myself as living and working in Chicago or New York and talking to millions of people in the morning. That was my drive.”

BJ has been on air in small to medium to Major markets during his 30 year career. Those cities include the following: Raleigh-Durham North Carolina, Columbia SouthCarolina, Greensboro North Carolina, Baltimore Maryland, Kansas City Missouri, Charlotte North Carolina, Washington DC, Dallas Texas, Chicago Illinois. “One of the greatest highlights in my career was filling in for my Iconic hero Donnie Simpson on WPGC 95.5 in Washington DC. When Donnie and I both worked for CBS radio, I would fill in for Donnie while he was on vacation. I was in Charlotte and got to come to Washington and sit in his seat.”

BJ’s claim to fame is being known in the industry as one of the Elite Morning Men in Urban radio. The Late Jerry Boulding always placed BJ in the ranks of Urban radio’s Top Urban Morning talent. Here is an excerpt: Making Mornings Work One of the on-going axioms of our industry is "as mornings go, so goes the station." Yet while most formats have developed either a local or syndicated morning show, the blueprint or personality archetype for urban radio is still developing. In other words, we have not yet developed a complete system for developing strong local morning shows for the future. Like those in other formats, urban programmers continue to say things like, "The music is really the product. We'll get the music right and let it do the talking.

We can hire or import a morning show and we'll be all right." That philosophy and attitude in a world with no competition might have been able to generate some numbers in the past, but for those of us dealing with the real world where there are strong, well-financed stations hammering at us from all sides, it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that you got to have a "killer" morning show to be competitive. And not all morning shows work in all markets. There's really no question about the power of a strong morning show on urban radio, though. But what changed this year was the recognition that morning humor really comes from character.

Nationally syndicated morning shows from Tom Joyner, Doug Banks, Russ Parr, BJ Murphy and now Steve Harvey have proven this. BJ Murphy spent the greatest amount of his radio career in Charlotte North Carolina, for 9 years producing most lucrative shows in the stations history. “At one point we were helping the station generate 1 Million dollars a month in Revenue before the market dropped around the time of “911”. Radio and Records Magazine in 2002 named his show The #1 up and coming Urban Morning Show in America. BJ has also done morning syndication under the brand “BJ in the Morning” with Syndicator SupeRadio back in 2005.

In 2004, A poll was done among Urban programmers and they were asked which morning show they felt would be the next successful show in syndication? Thus the BJ in the Morning show was launched in 2005 out of Dallas Texas. “We were poised to be the younger version of what Tom Joyner was doing in morning syndication. If it were not for the 800 pound Gorilla in the form of Steve Harvey, I am confident that we would be on in 30 or more cities across the US today”.

BJ Murphy has a strong work ethic in preparing for his daily show and has been known to arrive at the station at least 2 hours before his 6am morning show. His passion for helping the community is well noted, particularly working with young black males. BJ is caring and sincere in his efforts to make a positive change wherever he goes.

BJ has given up his income tax checks to help people stay in their homes and countless other acts of kindness with those less fortunate in our community. “I am a servant DJ for the people of God”. To serve them is to serve him”. “ I believe when you put good before you, it always comes back”.

Mr. Murphy is also a recipient of the Tom Joyner Personality of the year award. The National Black Programmers Personality of the year Award. Billboard Magazines #1 Up and Coming Urban Morning Show. BJ has been written of in numerous trade publications and has been a featured panelist at many radio industry events.

John & Heidi

A LITTLE BIT ABOUT JOHN AND HEIDI

John Small & Heidi Braunschweig (now Small) met in 1999 when John moved to a small town in Iowa to help launch a new radio station. About five months after moving there he met Heidi, and their world has not been the same since.

Married since 2000, the Smalls began this radio show ten years later in 2010. John started his broadcasting career in 1994, but this radio program started when the couple launched their own radio station in South Dakota and their friends encouraged John to have Heidi join him on the radio. It was very different to have a MARRIED COUPLE do the morning show together. Sometimes that's a great thing.... other times it can be weird since they are so "comfy" with each other on the air! What started on one station, then went to two stations now to dozens of stations across the nation.

The John & Heidi Show is now available to radio stations, both commercial and non-commercial stations at no charge (with one minute of barter per hour, during their show only) or for a small monthly fee with no barter ads required. The program is also available to AM stations, FM stations, LPFM stations, and even online radio stations. If you'd like to hear the show in YOUR area... please tell your favorite local radio station about us! Just send them to this page and we will try to do the rest!

John & Heidi Small have been blessed with two amazing kids and two dogs. Their son Troy and their daughter Taylor. (The dogs... Mandy & Miley... pretty much just hang around the house)

The John & Heidi Show PODCAST started in 2015 to allow people to hear things they might have missed on the radio show.

Al B. Love

Al B. Love! has logged over 25 years in the industry and he reflects on how he became interested in broadcasting and production. "I've been interested in "sound" for as long as I can remember. I used to have a portable cassette recorder and found that when the batteries ran low, recording my voice would change the pitch and sound. I also used to make tapes for a cousin of mine in L.A. We would always try to outdo each other. He was very good at mixing, but I was better at putting together elements that could be played between songs. So when I would send him tapes, they would sound like a radio show complete with liners, drops, and even commercials I would make up. When I started out, I didn't own a lot of elaborate equipment, just a Radio Shack mixer, a cassette recorder, a cheap microphone, and some old scratchy sound effects records that I would use to create drops and things".

This was the match that lit the fire to his career choice. However, as he pursued his dream, he had to survive, performing non-broadcast related jobs along the way. While working as a grocery stocker for a local Kroger store in his hometown of Houston, TX, he remembers an incident that most people in radio can relate to. "There was this co-worker that knew about my desire to get into radio,", says Al B. "I was studying a broadcasting correspondence course I learned about in the Rolling Stone magazine. One day, this particular co-worker took me out on the sales floor and said, 'you see all these groceries, this is where you are and this is where you're going to be!!' "

After facing that "reality check", Al B. refused to be locked into what appeared at that time to be a dead end situation. After discussing his plight with his wife, Connie (who supported him 100%), Al B. decided to leave his job at Kroger and enter into the uncertain world of radio. While watching television one day, he caught an ad for the Columbia School of Broadcasting. Using his severance incentive from Kroger, he decided to attend CSB in order to learn more about broadcasting. And as the story goes, 'His-Story' is still being written today. Since then, Al B. has worked at various stations and formats, accomplishing all of this in his native city of Houston. He has also worked as a production director at WOWI in Norfolk, VA.

How did he develop his style? Al B. states, "Well, I guess my style is a combination of several people's styles that I've come to know and respect. Mitch Faulkner, former production director of KMJQ, who had existed before I began working there, is at the very top of the list. Then there's Bill Travis, Shaun O'Neal, Bill Young, James Breedlove, K.D. Bowe, and Rick Party, just to name a few. I listen to what all these pros do. I take a little bit from each of them and add my own Flava to the mix. I guess you can say it's just like making a cake.

"If his production skills can be compared to making a cake, then it can be truly said that Al B. Love! is having his cake and eating it, too. His advice to others interested in production is: "Take time to perfect your skills. Even if it takes you 35 or 45 minutes to produce just one spot, take the time to do it. The more you do, the better you get. And listen to the radio and TV. Hear what others are doing. And stay on top of the ever-changing technology. It's taken over two decades to hone my skills and I never stop growing. I still make it a point to learn something new every time a walk into the studio.

"When receiving compliments about his work, Al B. remains humble acknowledging that Jehovah is the true source of his talents. "I really appreciate ople like my work", says Al B., "but truly the talent I possess does not belong to me. I'm just kind of borrowing it for a while.

"What does Al B. Love? do in his spare time? "Well," he says "I’m an avid collector of watches. Especially mechanicals & mechanical/automatics. I am amazed at how they are assembled. And how they come to life when wounded. Above all, I enjoy spending time with my family. They keep me grounded, and balanced". Currently, Al B. Love! is the owAl B.
