This just in from the folks at KHUM:
Chas Lewis, host of " The South Side " on 104.7/ 104.3 KHUM has been named ‘DJ of the Month’ by the Roots Music Report , which features radio airplay charts from over 300 radio stations worldwide. Lewis said, "Since the program went on the air, I've been posting weekly playlists on the show website ( www.thesouthside.org ) as a service to listeners, and then started submitting playlists to the Roots Music Report a couple years ago. I'm in good company there along with plenty of well-known national and international shows."
Chas established the show in 2001, playing an energetic and satisfying mix of classic and modern Blues, along with some Rhythm and Blues and Soul music. "Being a part of the Roots Music Report database means that KHUM receives new releases from lots of independent artists we wouldn't get otherwise. Hosting "The South Side" is a labor of love and is really about sharing this great music with listeners, but it's always nice to get some peer recognition," Lewis says.
You can listen to "The South Side" Friday nights from 7 to 10 p.m. on 104.7/104.3 KHUM or streaming from the KHUM website at www.khum.com .
