Feature Friday: Adrian Daniel
Highlighting Our People in Podcasting!
Yoooo it’s November already…anddd it’s… Feature Friday! ✨
I would love to see a more intentional movement of podcasting that is not a just a money grab, but a true voice for Black people and a resource for the community at large.
Okay…so you’re probably like is sis doing Feature Friday’s or nah?! I am I promise and just like podcasting consistency is key, so keep reading consistently, and sharing consistently and your girl is happy to keep sharing your stories consistently!
Speaking of consistence, I would be remiss if I didn’t shout out today’s awesome feature. He’s a podcast host of a show that is consistently on point and amazing and that is Adrian Daniel aka DJ Sir Daniel. (okay I’ve probably broke a record now with all the consistent stuff but you get it right 😅)
Now if you’re a regular reader you know DJ Sir Daniel is one half of the wondrous duo that hosts the podcast Queue Points. We featured his co host Jay Ray a while back. Queue Points Podcast drops the needle on Black Music History. It is their mission to amplify the names and voices of artists, music and movements that make Black culture the most sought after, imitated and monetized culture in the world.
You gotta check out Queue points, this show moves with intention and does a great job at being a true voice for our community. Besides you know we love music 🎵 💃🏾, and having a podcast like this is so important.
As a DJ and historian that honors Black women musicians specifically, my voice is a much needed change from the typical voices that tend to detract and defame the names and reputations of Black women.
Gotta love that, in a world that detracts they’re working to uplift and amplify. As we have seen over a lot of the feature’s the beauty of podcasting is being able to create your own narrative, to be able to create your own space, and in a way put out a different perspective and truth in the universe.
This podcast just made sense considering his history, we know Sir Daniel the DJ and vinyl records enthusiast. But digging a little deeper, he shares how after working in commercial radio in Atlanta for 7 years, he left but grew restless and needed a home for his voice. So in 2008 he joined forces with social media personality, Drama Dupree to start Better Days Radio as one of the first Black and Gay podcasts. (Love that, take a moment to applaud that okay 🎉) They delved into social issues and entertainment. If that wasn’t enough amazingness DJ Sir Daniel also produces a live mix show on MixCloud called SHUGA-HONEY ON THE ROCKS dedicated to Black women in Hip-Hop and RnB. So it seems he is surrounded with music and created a few platforms to share that passion.
Now having accomplished so many things DJ Sir Daniel has been in podcasting for about 8 years. But what was learned along the way…
That consistency is key and to not give up on myself. [ Take part in] The Black Podcast Association, Afros and Audios convention and always make sure your audio is of the highest quality.
Told ya’ll consistency is key 😂
So keep podcasting
Keep doing ya’ll thing!
Until 7 whole days from now … for real this time
I’m wishing you
Peace ☮️ Love ❤️ Soul💪🏾 -Adell aka @iamadellcoleman on all socials 💋
