R Dub! | Saturday – Thursday 6pm -10pm, Sundays 6pm -12m
Catch R Dub Saturdays – Thursdays during Slow Jams. R Dub! was just 16 when he created Sunday Nite Slow Jams in the summer of 1994, and has since hosted and produced the show throughout the years. At age fifteen after moving to Tucson, Arizona with his family, R Dub! got his first chance in radio, volunteering at the local public radio station. Although he was on in the middle of the night, broadcasting out of a tiny radio station that didn’t have many listeners, he was happy to be playing his Slow Jams…and even if just one person was listening, he knew he was making a difference in their night! By the time R Dub! was a junior in high school, he was the full-time Slow Jams show host at Tucson’s first hip hop station – Power 1490, where Sunday Nite Slow Jams was born. As the years went by, and radio stations came and went, R Dub! managed to keep the Sunday Nite Slow Jams alive, taking them with him whenever he changed stations.
