Check out the April 15 edition of #UPFRONT Inside Atlanta's Entertainment Industry.  This week's show features Hip Hop Icon and Pioneer, MC Lyte. She was on the campus of Clark Atlanta University this week to help Chevrolet and the National Newspaper Publishers Association (NNPA) select journalism students for scholarships through the “Discover The Unexpected" Fellowship Program. 

Texas-born keyboardist, producer, and arranger Shaun Martin has spent many fruitful years playing with Kirk Franklin's God's Property, Erykah Badu, and Snarky Puppy. and now he's taking the spotlight with his solo release, 7 Summers. As a product of the fertile musical ground which is the Dallas music scene, Martin has turned into one of the most in demand musicians in popular music. Fresh from playing on BET's Sundays Best in Atlanta, he joined me in our WCLK studios to talk about his legacy, how fear can paralyze musicians and being in Johannesburg when Nelson Mandela passed away.

WCLK Joy In The Morning Listeners take note--Support for WCLK programming comes from The American Bible Challenge - returning for its second season March 21 at 9pm eastern on the Game Show Network(GSN). The show pits teams who are playing for charity against one another and includes an entertaining mix of pop culture and questions from the Bible.
