Aqueelah H. Jamal – I love jazz music, its community, and WURD RADIO! I was born and raised in Philadelphia and have had a love of music from the womb. I get it from my mother who enjoyed all music, people and good times. I love RADIO from the transistor to today’s podcasts and streaming outlets. I was introduced to broadcasting by my dear friend, Jonathan Bey, who led me to The American Academy of Broadcasting in the late 1970s. He then connected me to Temple University where I was introduced to WRTI 90.1FM Radio and spent six years there amongst some of the best communicators (our preferred term for DJs) and learned from the best of the best! Eighteen years in the chair is an honor, a privilege and a blessing.
