IT’S OFFICIAL: It’s A Slow Jams Nation!
“Sunday Night Slow Jams” Meets Growing Demand For Destination Music Programming With New Station Affiliates in Chicago, Dayton and Sacramento
Benztown announces that internationally syndicated hit weekend radio show Sunday Night Slow Jams has kicked off the second half of 2021 with the addition of three new affiliates in Chicago, IL, Dayton, OH, and Sacramento, CA. Sunday Night Slow Jams, the #1 weekend radio show in America, adds Audacy’s Classic Hip Hop station 104.3 Jams/WBMX-FM in Chicago, the third Top 10 U.S. market signed to the Slow Jams Nation since 2020. The program also now airs on Alpha Media’s Rhythmic Contemporary station Hot 102.9/WDHT-FM in Dayton, OH, and on iHeartMedia’s Classic Hip Hop station V101.1/KHYL-FM in Sacramento, CA. The new additions bring Sunday Night Slow Jams to 204 affiliates worldwide.
Sunday Night Slow Jams is available to a wide variety of formats in multiple versions for Top 40, Hot AC, Urban, Urban AC, Rhythmic/Hip-Hop, and Classic Hip-Hop stations. Slow Jams currently reaches over three million consumers per week. The show’s Creator, Host and Producer, R Dub!, also produces a weeknight version of Slow Jams, which airs Monday through Thursday from 10PM-12M.
R Dub! said: “What an exciting time! Eric Rosado (Sacramento) and Ryan Drake (Dayton) run phenomenal brands that I am so honored and privileged to be a small part of. And launching in Chicago is just a dream come true for me for a few reasons.
First, I was born there – Chi is my hometown! Finally, my aunts and uncles back home will believe that I’m really on the radio! Second, the moment 104.3 JAMS signed on, I was in love with the station and knew we’d be together one day. Third, I get to work with Todd Cavanah and Erik Bradley, plus Ed Lover and Sonic – all people I admire greatly. What a thrill!”
Dave “Chachi” Denes, Benztown President, commented: “These incredible new affiliates take Sunday Night Slow Jams’ incomparable music programming to big radio markets that will no doubt love what they hear. It’s been a thrill to partner with R Dub! to bring Sunday Night Slow Jams to new audiences as the demand for this true destination listening experience continues to increase. This year’s affiliate additions in major markets including New York, San Francisco and Chicago bring new energy and excitement to the program and – along with all 204 stations currently airing the show – make the U.S. officially a ‘Slow Jams Nation’!”
