Kevin Kavaunjay Braden started a new project – “901 All Access” – about nine months ago. Count me among those who think he really is on to something great.
Kevin is a radio personality and DJ for Memphis-Shelby County Schools at 88.5 on the radio dial. His “901 All Access” show can be seen on Cable 19 in Memphis and on YouTube if you don’t live in Memphis.
The 30-minute show’s format pivots off interviews with Memphis celebrities in the entertainment industry from rappers to seamstresses. Kevin interviews his guests in African-American-owned restaurants.
It’s a 2-for-1 deal: The artist gets the exposure and so does the restaurant.
This week, he featured DJ Superman, a radio personality for 107.1 in Memphis. The featured restaurant was Fannie Lou’s Gourmet Chicken and Waffles. The food was delicious. I will definitely be back.
The “901 All Access” hard-working team includes the amazing creativity of Ayesha Bass and Khalil Downey, with his “Streets of Memphis” segment.
Season 1 is currently running on Comcast Cable 19 at 11 a.m. on Saturdays. Check out past episodes on YouTube under “901 All Access.”
Be on the lookout for Season 2, featuring interviews with Frayser Boy, Kia Shine, Ashley Ave. and more.
For me and others, “901 All Access” already is must-see TV.
