The Baltimore Blend

Monday-Friday, 6 a.m-9 a.m.

Like a good cup of coffee, The Baltimore Blend is a great way to start the morning. Hosted by longtime Baltimore musician and drummer Robert Shahid, with co-host Mykel Hunter and news anchor Beverly Burke, The Blend highlights the best of Baltimore and the uniqueness of WEAA. Each morning features news; interviews with local community leaders, artists, and WEAA public affairs personalities; and a musical blend that includes jazz, blues, inspirational and even a little house music.

Mondays offer a look at the weekend’s sports highlights in the “Monday Morning Quarterback” segment. Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays feature interviews with everyone from local politicos to artists to business leaders. “Your Way Wednesday” gives listeners an opportunity to request their favorite tunes via the request line. The “Thursday Morning Jam Session” introduces listeners to a local jazz artist who spends the morning in studio. The week wraps up with the “Friday Morning House Party,” a house music mix put together by the hosts of WEAA’s Saturday night show, “Audio Infusion.” All week long, hosts of WEAA’s public affairs shows check in to offer an update on the evening’s programs, and listeners weigh in on the “Trending Topic,” an issue that has everyone buzzing.

The Baltimore Blend welcomes Analysis, a Baltimore-based activist, entrepreneur and poet. He has recently been part of an ecumenical justice event, focusing on the need for criminal justice reform/police reform in an effort to encourage respect for our communities and the people in it.

On his new album “I Like It When They Call Me Big Daddy,” Charles Big Daddy Stallings continues his mission to combine Soul Blues, R&B, and traditional Blues progressions with stories that take listeners on a “Bluesical Journey” from Tobacco Road to the Fast Lane of Urban/Boogie Boulevard. Staying true to his tradition, “Big Daddy” calls on local and regional artists as musical guests to support his vision.

Baltimore Blend guest Joi Carter, also known as JC, is a Baltimore native. Her fiery sound and spunky stage performance are indicative of her love for 80's music, and her childhood in a house filled with soca, funk, and rock.
