Moon Man
 

An upbeat delivery, rhyming patter, a flair for showmanship and am incredible knowledge of music. That's Moon Man! Born in Florence, South Carolina, Moon Man started in the radio business in 1960 at hometown 540 WYNN in Florence. Eager to make the major markets, Moon Man segued his act to Wilmington, North Carolina in 1962 for a stint at WKLM. By 1963, he had landed in Charlotte at WGIV. Come the year of 1964, and Moon Man headed north to Richmond to handle Afternoon Drive at WIKI. One year later, the Moon Man landed at WUST in Washington D.C. In 1966, he moved over to Washington's WOOK where he stayed for 5 years. During those years, WOOK and WOL battled for Soul supremacy in the District. In 1971, Moon Man flew west to the Motor City for a gig at WJLB in Detroit. By 1973, it was back to the Eastern Seaboard and Baltimore for a shift at then James Brown owned 1360 WEBB. For 12 years, Moon Man served up late-day soul to thousands of Baltimore's homeward-bound commuters. In 1985, the Moon Man headed back to Washington and WOL. He's still there today. In 1992, the owners of WOL (Radio One) purchased WSID in Baltimore and renamed it 1010 AM WOLB. Thus Moon was heard in two markets at the same time. Briefly in 1997, Moon Man added to his busy schedule, a weeknight show at Oldies 1230 WITH. In addition to his radio career, Moon Man has also worked extensively in television. His first TV show, 'Soul of the City', was later known as 'The Dance Connection'. It is still on the air today...one of TV's longest running dance shows, nationally and internationally syndicated and seen in over 100 markets. Moon Man has over the years also promoted concerts...written, produced and directed feature films and commercials...and many young and talented DJ's who came up under his mentorship are some of today's radio stars. Today Moon Man is building a web site (MoonMan.com). He seeks to 'bring adult personality to the internet from the golden era'. Moon man loves to entertain people, and his love for others is reflected in his life philosophy. 'Be kind to the people you meet on the way up, because they could be the same ones that you meet on the way down'. E-mail the Moon Man at danceco12@aol.com.
