The theme of the 20th Anniversary issue of RFFocus is “Inspiration for Stagnation” no holds barred and this by far is one of the best interviews I have done in the history of RFFocus . I have never had a guest so incredibly honest and unwilling to play the usual radio under the radar politics in public. Truth be told it is what makes Charlamagne one of my favorite radio people and a star that has barely scratched the surface of his success. He reminds of me of who I WANTED to be in my radio career but I didn’t have the access to the tools that jocks have today. People like Charlamagne are usually advised to play by the rules, watch what they say and play the game but that makes announcers, it never makes STARS!
KEVIN ROSS: You we’re very very unlikely to become a huge radio star so quickly. You didn’t have a lot of experience and you reached the number one market in what seemed like no time. Does it seem like it happened overnight?
Charlamagne: Kev, I am offended by that question. OK, I’m offended because I am a seventeen year radio veteran I started off as an intern in 1998 in Charleston, South Carolina at a station called Z-93 Jamz.
