R Dub! was just 16 and in high school when he created Sunday Night Slow Jams in the summer of 1994, and has since hosted and produced the show throughout the years.
Born in Chicago and growing up in L.A. and Orlando, Florida, R Dub! spent his time staying up late at night listening to various “Slow Jams” type radio shows around the country. He loved the music and the overall mood of Slow Jams, and at age 13 decided his dream was to host his own Slow Jam show.
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 hoped he was making a difference in their night!
Today R Dub!’s Sunday Night Slow Jams is heard on over 150 radio stations, in 13 countries. From Honolulu, Hawaii, to Anchorage Alaska, from Manila, Philippines, to Lagos, Nigeria Sunday Night Slow Jams has taken the world by storm and gave Sunday nights a new definition.
“I won’t stop until every town in every state in every country in the world can listen to Sunday Night Slow Jams,” says R Dub! “I want the whole world to be able to have a special place to come home to every Sunday night!”
