5 Years ago today- April 19, 2007 was the first official timeslot of The Come Up Show. I started doing the Wednesday night/Thursday morning time slot 2am-6am every week. My only goal was to give artists a chance for their music to be heard, to play great Hip-Hop and R&B music I felt wasn’t being represented at all on radio or TV.
5 years later The Come Up Show has developed into an award winning radio show and we just got a stylus nomination for College Radio Show of the year. We launched The Come Up Show website which is home for daily music updates and news. The Come Up Show TV which has gained over half a million views from interviewing artists like Shad, Method Man, Kendrick Lamar and countless other people. One of the special things about The Come Up Show is the great people we have attracted; from our bloggers, video team, marketing and street team, together we helped artists who we believe in. We did the first Canadian interview with artists like Big KRIT who is on his way to superstardom, and we contributed to the culture we love and that is the most important thing.
Tonight we are celebrating at APK LIVE and it’s going to be a great show as Parrish from the legendary EPMD will be performing, Citizen Kane, Angerville and other talented artists. To me this isn’t just a celebration of what we have accomplished but it’s a celebration to what is possible.
I would like to thank every single person and organization who have supported us. 94.9FM CHRW being the foundation to where it all started and our peers, and fans that continue to support us.
Come out tonight and celebrate with us, there will be ice cream cake and great people vibing. Tickets are still avaliable and only 15 bucks.
