Radio veterans Johnny Morris and his daughter Felicia “The Poetess” Morris have launched AM/FM Multi-Media Services. Johnny Morris, who recently celebrated 45 years in radio, has teamed with his daughter, 20-year radio vet, The Poetess, to provide a multitude of quality broadcast services that include: Consultation in broadcast engineering and studio design; scripting and production of commercials; station imaging and voice-over and on air producer services.
“I’m proud to be working with my daughter and building the Morris family legacy.” Says Mr. Morris, who began his professional radio career at the age of 16 years old. Ms. Morris, who first opened the mic at the age of 5, became deeply inspired by watching her father on air and she later got her break in radio on Lee Bailey’s Hip Hop Countdown & Report. “My dad has been such an inspiration in my life” says The Poetess “I’m so happy to be following in his footsteps and having the opportunity to work closely with him.” The Morris’ once shared the same time slot on competing radio stations in Los Angeles. “Do your best” Johnny would say teasingly to Felicia, “˜cause your up against the best.”

In the 60’s and 70’s, Morris became a popular disc jockey on KSOL and KDIA in the San Francisco Bay Area and later joined the staff of KGFJ / KUTE-FM in Los Angeles in the 80’s. Mr. Morris has over 40 years of experience on air and as an engineer and consultant.
