A DRAMATIC EVOLUTIONARY MOVE
In what was described as a dramatic evolutionary move, popular Caribbean radio personality Diana Taylor, (A.K.A. Lady “D”) switched her radio program format from Reggae, Calypso, and R & B to Gospel. Her new gospel show is now being aired MON – FRI from 7 to 9 PM on WOKB 1680am. Lady “D” is one of the pioneers who helped to elevate Caribbean music to the fore-front in the Central Florida market. Her historical journey spans a period of 24 years commencing July 1984 on Orlando radio station WONG AM. Along the way she made successful stops at several other stations including 1270 WORL, 990 WHOO, 1190 WAMT, 1600 WOKB – to name a few.
YOUNG PEOPLE’S FORUM
She was also responsible for creating and successfully producing the first ever “YOUNG PEOPLE’S FORUM” (7 – 17) aired on 1600 AM, WOKB in 1994. “To survive in the radio business in the same market for decades is a miraculous feat” Lady “D” is quick to point out. She credited her longevity to hard work, positive thinking, on-going support from her loyal listeners (who followed her from station to station), and most importantly, blessings from the Almighty above.
MUSIC: A PASSION OF LIFE
Her loyal listeners to her Caribbean format will fondly remember her for her up tempo style of presentation, her vibrant personality, her pulsating voice and her versatility to inform, educate and inspire. “These qualities” she explained “will follow me wherever I go.” Now a devout born again Christian, Lady “D” is now totally focused in expressing her new-found happiness and contentment utilizing one of the passions of her life – music. All her listeners are invited to join her at WOKB 1680am where she is confident that her new gospel format will help in the religious enrichment of their lives.
