Naughty, Randy C, JChris and Tessa Monet... could it possibly get any hotter?
The awesome foursome are turning up the heat on the radio at the country’s newest station to hit the air — Hot 91.7 FM where they play the latest R&B, Urban and Pop hits, featuring top 40 in all the genres, including Caribbean, Reggae and Soca music.
Naughty gets your day going from 6 a.m. to 10 a.m. with comedy, giveaways and crank calls, warming you up for Tessa Monet, a newcomer to the scene from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. With Tessa you get giveaways, music mixes and her hot stepper fashion tips. And if you think you know the words to the hot songs, you can play along to her “Know it, Flow it Game” and win awesome prizes.
The “choo choo” man, Randy C, continues to heat things up from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. with his uptempo music, hot mixes and his Bahamas Hot Ones show during which he features up-and-coming Bahamian artists. And JChris is the man that you will take the drive home with from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. His show is so hot that when you arrive at home, you will be so tuned in that you will just continue to rock out to the music and never even turn on the television.
On the air just over two weeks, the buzz about the country’s hottest station is hot.
“People have been saying they appreciate the programming, that they like the music, and the mix of music as a matter of fact; so we’re already making an impact,” said Associated Media Group (AMG) Limited programming director Tony Williams of the station, located at #7 Carter Street, Oakes Field in the Nassau Guardian building.
Hot attracts an audience of 13-year-olds and up, depending on how you think, and the kind of music you like.
“We needed Hot for a better variety of music,” said Williams. “When you listen to other stations you either just get one genre all the time, we listened and we figured we could make a difference.”
Williams said Hot will be the number one station in the country because of the music the station plays, and because it will give Bahamian entertainers an opportunity to get their music played, especially music that is not being played anywhere now.
“The station is hot because we know what we wanted, and I think we’re accomplishing that already.”
Hot recently held a Get To Know Your Hot Radio Personalities Party at Mario’s Bowling and Entertainment Palace, where fans of the station got the opportunity to meet the Hot radio station personalities and hang out with them.
