From WCLK General Manager Wendy Williams--Yolanda Reynolds always loved working with WCLK and we loved working with her. She was the first to launch our popular radio talk show Atlanta Profiles with leading dignitaries and business leaders. She knew so many people. Most know her from her work with the Who’s Who Publishing Company. But most of all Yolanda Reynolds was best known for her warmth and graciousness. She is a truly beautiful spirit that is now soaring.
Joey Sommerville is a friend of WCLK and a friend to many in Atlanta, his adopted hometown. His new release Overnight Sensation is getting spins from WCLK PD Aaron Cohen at various times throughout the day and night on the station, including on Serenade To The City. The record includes guest appearances from Earl Klugh, Jeff Bradshaw, Elan Trotman, and Eric Essix. You can hear Joey around town and around the world, and you can often hear him supporting WCLK during our fundraising campaigns. Best wishes with the new record, Joey.
