Welcome to the new wadeoradio.com! Our goal in building this new website is to aid you in your walk with the Lord. Obviously, music is very near and dear to us and will continue to serve as the foundation of the ministry. Our new site has many new features, however, that we believe will help you grow beyond the music.
More than likely, one of our podcasts or interviews brought you here. We’ve developed a podcast media player that will allow you to stream any of our previous podcasts or interviews right here on the site. You can start from Episode 1 and work your way up, or begin at the current week’s show and listen in reverse order.
Mikaela aka Laide Mak serves as our managing editor for the site. Many of you will remember her from our old site, where she used to write a weekly column called New Music Tuesdays’. In addition, Aubrey McKay and Branden Murphy serve as our resident music reviewers. We realize that that your time is precious and want to be a resource in helping you discover, download or purchase new music.
It’s difficult to know where you are going, if you don’t have a good reference point for where you have been. As such, Sketch the Journalist will be lending his expertise with a monthly blog on the history of Christian Hip Hop. We never want to forget where we’ve come from as we can learn many lessons from the past 20-25 years of this music genre
The biggest new edition to the site is our blog section. Whether it’s a resource on discovering your purpose, learning to deal with a struggle or encouraging you to read your Bible, we want to help you grow more in your walk with the Lord. This is why, besides Christian Hip Hop and Reviews, DJ Wade-O, Rasheda Likely and various guest bloggers write blogs on Leadership, Culture, Life and Ministry.
To help you learn more about the thought process behind the new site as well as meet the people behind this ministry, we’ve recorded this podcast. You can listen to it here.

ABOUT THE WADE-O RADIO SHOW
The Wade-O Radio Show is an international, terrestrial, Internet radio show, and podcast that provides its listeners with high-quality Christian Hip Hop music, news, and interviews.
In each episode the listener can expect the latest news with audio segments from Sketch the Journalist, mixes by DJ Wade-O, a Caribbean Gospel Pick of the Week, a countdown of the five hottest songs out right now, conversations about controversial topics within the Church, and hard-hitting interviews with today’s top artists, leaders, and pastors. Each episode embodies our tag-line: It’s More than Music…It’s Ministry.
What started in November 2006 as a simple online Myspace radio show featuring some of DJ Wade-O’s favorite music has now grown to be one of the biggest online Christian urban radio shows. With over 1 million podcast downloads and a catalog of interviews consisting of the likes of Al Sharpton, Lecrae, Kirk Franklin, and ESPN’s Chris Broussard, Wade-O Radio is one of the premiere sources of Christian-conscience radio that reflects the urban listener. Wade-O Radio is consistently featured in iTunes’ Top Music Podcast charts.
Beyond just the show, listeners can also stay informed about new music and discussions through wadeoradio.com, email blasts from DJ Wade-O himself, and the Wade-O Radio blog. In all things, Wade-O Radio stands on the belief that the work of the show is “more than music, it’s ministry,” and because of that, one can find the message and hope of Christ as the central theme of all things presented through DJ Wade-O and the radio show.
