Just wanted to give a quick shout out to a couple of the funky-fresh DJs out there who are playing my latest tunes. The first I'd like to mention are actually some old friends of mine, who started playing my stuff back in the early 2000's with "It Must Have Been the Music." I am talking about the long-running funk and soul show called The Upper Room on WVOF 88.5 FM in Farifield, CT. Hosts Joe Kelley and Gi Dussault have been hosting this very cool program since 1982, and I am so thankful and appreciative of their support over the years.

If you live in the vicinity of Fairfield, CT you should definitely check out their program on Monday nights from 6 to 10pm. You can also listen to them on the web 24/7 at this link:

I'm happy to announce a new source of Big Ben funkiness on the airwaves: DJ Dan Toner of the Funky Fridays show on CUIT 89.5 FM in Toronto, ON. Dan has chosen to make my single "Friday Night" a part of his playlist, and I couldn't be more pleased! He debuted the single on his show this past Good Friday, and you can download the episode and listen to it here:

This radio campaign is just beginning, and I am hoping to add a lot more shows and DJs to this list of cats who are spinning my wax! If you are a DJ or radio programmer and you're interested in playing my stuff on your show or station, please reach out to me and I'll get you what you need right away. If you're a funk fan then you should listen to these programs and request some BIG BEN HILLMAN today!!!

Thanks for the support, y'all! :)

By the way, if you didn't get the reference of the title of this post, it's a shout-out to the late great Donna Summer and one of my favorite tunes of hers.... "On The Radio."
