Show of the Week: Dr. B’s Crib: Almost Live
11 October 2016 BSR News
Every week of programing we will be highlighting the Black Squirrel Radio Show of the Week!
This week’s show is Dr. B’s Crib: Almost Live
Dr. B’s Crib: Almost Live airs Thursdays from 2pm to 4pm. Host Braylon Lee (aka Dr.B) and his co-hosts Aja Labrador (aka Aja Lee Marie), Assata Amani and Larry Lee have been at BSR for three semesters. Braylon describes their program as ‘life: discussing dating, relationships, success… and so much more.’
How did you come up with your show name/DJ name?
Braylon: My show name came from thinking of a way to take my childhood plus what I have learned and put it on the radio plus the almost live name is a play on not being on terrestrial radio. My DJ Name was created by two guys from an old skool show that I did an internship for. They saw that I could relate music to life while giving an opinion on anything and everything in life. The way I describe Dr. B is he is a bold, outspoken and empathic person who doles out advice on life.
How would you describe your show?
Braylon: I take conversations that people have everyday from kitchen tables to workplaces and put them on air. I use conversation, comedy and heart on each and every show that I do. The show is designed to be an environment where people can be themselves.
Who are some of your favorite bands/artists?
Braylon: Jill Scott, Michael Jackson, Justin Timberlake and Toni Braxton
Assata: Aaliyah, Jhene Aiko, Beyoncé, Partynextdoor, Tupac, Kendrick Lamar and J Cole
Aja: Chance the rapper, drake and jazmine sullivan
What is your best musical/pop culture related medical advice?
Braylon: Listen to music that you speaks to you. I always think of my mood before I choose my music because what maybe my release, I have to be careful how others interpret what I listen to.
If you could have any famous figure on your show who would it be?
Braylon: Steve Harvey and Salma Hayek
Assata: Gabrielle Union
Aja: I would have Michelle Obama on.
