If you live in New York, Los Angeles or the District of Columbia, The Muzic Lounge may be airing in a city near you in the not so distant future. Marty A. Johnson, the creator and host, is started to create a national buzz with his [web-based?] broadcast spotlighting mega music stars and unsigned artists in the areas of hip hop, pop culture, and R&B. Originally airing in Raleigh, North Carolina, Johnson’s Muzic Lounge is now in its sixth season and has already featured some of the entertainment industry’s most notable superstars including Lil Wayne, Marsha Ambrosius, Tyrese, Fantasia, Keyshia Cole, Star Jones and Ray J.
Johnson, who developed the show concept in 2006, set out to provide “a diverse music television program that featured live performances, music reviews, celebrity interviews and artist showcases.” Most would say he has accomplished this mission. Johnson reflects “I grew up in New London, Connecticut where the outlet for music was small…I watched shows like Soul Train and Star Search which really made me want to get involved in the entertainment industry.” Read more now in TRIBES Magazine’s 8th Anniversary issue.
Catch an episode of the show in North Carolina on Wednesdays and Saturdays at 11:30pm on Channel 10 in Raleigh or Thursdays at 11:30 pm on Channel 18 in Durham and Channel 8 in Chapel Hill.
