Friday Night Old-School Slow Jams on The Greenwood Beat – WFPG: A Musical Journey Back in Time

When the weather is just right and the weekend is about to begin, there’s something special about finding the perfect songs to set the mood. That’s where Dr. Angela K. Chambers, CEO of The Greenwood BeatWFPG and host of the “Friday Night Old-School Slow Jams” on The Greenwood Beat – WFPG, comes in.

Every Friday from 10:00 p.m. to 11:59 p.m. CST, Dr. Chambers takes listeners on a nostalgic journey through the tunes that have stood the test of time. It’s the kind of show that brings joy and a sense of comfort, without even having to leave the house or go out to a crowded club.

As Dr. Chambers explains, “There’s something magical about hearing those songs you haven’t heard in a while. It’s like rediscovering a part of yourself, reminiscing about old times, and simply enjoying the music.” And that’s exactly what The Greenwood Beat delivers.

Launched on June 8, 2023, The Greenwood Beat has quickly become a refreshing presence in the world of radio. While many stations stick to the ordinary, playing music from selected genres, The Greenwood Beat is breaking the mold. They are inspiring, encouraging, and uplifting, all while jamming to the old-school beats that never fail to get your head nodding and your heart singing.

But The Greenwood Beat isn’t just about the Friday Night Old-School Slow Jams. The station offers a variety of other shows and platforms that cater to different interests and community needs. One of these is the “Refocus and Informed” radio talk show, where Dr. Chambers and Dr. Francetta L. Mays, the COO of The Greenwood Beat, discuss a range of topics. In the second season of the show and the first season on WFPG, they focused on justice. However, in the upcoming season 3, they will be diving into the theme of black love.

Another exciting addition to the lineup is “The New Artist Profile,” hosted by the world-renowned radio host Tony D. This show premiered on Sunday, June 21st, and aims to shine a spotlight on talented up-and-coming artists, giving them a platform to share their music and stories with a wider audience.

But it’s not all about music and talk shows on The Greenwood Beat. They also understand the importance of literacy and community engagement. That’s why they have a unique segment called “Let’s READ,” where volunteers take turns reading to school-aged children on air. By using their platform to promote reading, WFPG is making a positive impact on the community and encouraging a love for books.

So, if you’re looking for a way to kick back, relax, and start your weekend on a high note, tune in to the Friday Night Old-School Slow Jams on The Greenwood Beat – WFPG. Dr. Chambers will be your guide on this musical journey back in time, bringing you the songs that will make you smile, reminisce, and maybe even dance a little.
