Free Event: Willie Clark with All Star Panel: “On the Air: The History of Black Radio in Orlando”
6 – 7:30 p.m.
In the 1950’s and early ’60’s, radio personalities such as Clyde on a Cloud, Bigfoot Saul, and the Hossman were household names in Orlando’s black communities.

This program will revisit the beginnings of minority broadcasting in the Orlando area and chronicle its emergence as a dominant media platform in the community. The program includes a brief retrospective on the city’s black radio pioneers and the history of WOKB-AM 1600 (“Tiger Radio”), the area’s first full-time black station, followed by what promises to be a lively panel discussion with legendary radio personalities, executives, and at least one former radio station owner, “telling it like it was.” Willie Clark is an award-winning broadcaster, entrepreneur, and community activist with 30-plus years of experience in the radio and television industry.
