For Immediate Release:

Rockville, Maryland, March 9, 2010 – April Sims, entrepreneur and founder of wearegreaterthani.com will launch a new Arts & Entertainment online radio station, WAGTiradio.com on March 17, 2010.

WAGTi Radio (WeAreGreaterThani), formerly known as April Sims A & E Radio (Arts & Entertainment Radio) was created to provide independent artists and entrepreneurs with a platform to showcase their talent. WAGTi Radio will be dedicated to promoting, educating, motivating and inspiring independent artists and entrepreneurs.

“This is an idea of mine that’s been a long time coming,” says April. “Independent artists from all the arts have never had one place to showcase their art, whether it’s music or poetry, and I intend to give them that. It’s going to be an exciting show to tune into anytime and hear a variety of entertainment and also valuable information for artists they can’t hear anywhere else.”

Streaming around the clock, WAGTiradio.com will showcase independent artists’ music and spoken word. Additionally, WAGTiradio.com will have a live interview segment every weekday evening from 7PM – 8PM EST with guests ranging from well known jazz, pop, hip hop, R&B and world music artists to music producers, authors, DJ’s and industry experts providing an insight into the independent artists careers as well as individuals with specific expertise in business, marketing and social media networking for the benefit of artists and listeners. Programming weekdays will be devoted to jazz / R&B and weekends to world music, Caribbean and electronica with folk and gospel music maintaining consistent play throughout.

WAGTi Radio’s debut interview on March 17 at 7PM will feature Brian O’Neal, noted jazz musician, composer, producer and philanthropist who has shared the stage with such music icons as Stevie Wonder, George Duke and India Arie with some surprise guests for following segments including Herbert Holler, DJ, producer, promoter and founder of New York City’s #1 longest running Friday night party for the past 7 years The Freedom Party, will be April’s guest on March 19. Former guests on April Sims A&E Radio have been hip hop icons such as Mele Mel, Kurtis Blow and MC Serch to Grammy Award Winning singer Thelma Houston, GRAMMY nominee and 8 time Native American Music Awards winner Jana Mashonee and best-selling author William R. Patterson. April’s co-host for the interview segments, Chris “Poetry Man” Fields brings a unique element to all interviews with his orator’s insight, challenging and inquisitive questions and his profound thinking resulting in very compelling guest interviews.

April Sims deep passion for educating, motivating and uplifting independent artists, underexposed artists and entrepreneurs led her to create the social network www.wearegreaterthani.com providing education, inspiration and empowerment to artists and entrepreneurs.
