The Boss Radio Station
One of the many radio stations owned by Mr. Brown, WAAW “The Boss” 94.7 FM was a beacon of soul vibrations for our city from the mid-1990s through early 2000s. With its bright, wide studio windows facing the world outside, it was not unusual to see Mr. Brown behind the controls or his beautiful daughter, Deanna, spinning the wheels of steel. This area also marks a full circle for Mr. Brown - as a young James, he would entertain passersby with boss-dance moves and infectious song just a block away at the corner of 8th and Broad Streets. Soul starts here.
