Shawty Slim Says DJing for B.o.B is Still Surreal

Shawty Slim Says DJing for B.o.B is Still Surreal

We talked to grammy-nominated hip hop artist B.o.B's official tour DJ Shawty Slim by email while they were away on tour. He says when he's home, in Downtown Macon, walking around and visiting Washington Park is one of the best things to do. Shawty Slim got his start spinning while in school at Fort Valley State University when an unpaid internship paid off and led to a first job with Macon's WIBB 97.9.

WMAZ: Tell us about the current tour.  Where have you been?
Shawty Slim: The current tour i'm on right now with B.o.B is for his new album, Strange Clouds, that dropped on May 1st. He's told us that he want to tour the world for two years, so I'm excited that I get to be apart of the efforts to make it happen successfully.

Roberta Native Meiko to Appear on Jay Leno Tuesday

Meiko, rising pop star who just released her sophomore album, "The Bright Side" is set to appear on Jay Leno Tuesday night.

Recently, we interviewed Meiko by phone. See what she had to say:

Meiko (pronounced Mee-ko) is a Roberta-native whose second major label record release, “The Bright Side," is getting a lot of attention. The album, on Meiko's Fantasy Records/Concord Music Group label, blends a folk-pop approach with fluid interjections of electronic beats. You may have already experienced Meiko's music in shows like "Grey's Anatomy," "One Tree Hill" and "Pretty Little Liars."

13WMAZ’s Jacqueline Harnevious caught up with Meiko by phone to talk about music and her roots in Central Georgia.
