After a year stint in Dallas, Crisco Kidd and the Crisco Kidd Block Party show are headed to one of the nation’s Hip-Hop heavyweights, KKFR Power 98.3fm and 101.9fm for the East Valley in Phoenix, Arizona.
With the fourth flip of Hot’s format in 13 months and the addition of their new Program Director, Crisco’s departure came at the perfect time, as ratings have plummeted since.
Over the last 60 days, Crisco and his team have been touring the country finding the best situation for himself, his team and everyone involved and when Power 98.3 became a real possibility, there was no need to look further.
“I’ve been a fan of Power 98.3, Mikey Fuentes and the staff for years. The talent assembled and culture created, in today’s radio environment, is refreshing and rare! I truly believe this is a great fit for the Crisco Kidd Block Party brand and I can’t wait to join them and contribute in making Power the best station in the Country! – Crisco

He joins an all-star team including MC Magic and Dee Garcia in mornings, That Girl Fel middays, Tino Cochino Radio afternoons and some of the best mixers and support talent in the industry.

The World Famous DJ Noe G blessed us with his Selena Tribute Mix on the Crisco Kidd Block Party in honor of the Tejano Queen. 21 years have passed and the world still feels her presence not only in music but, in our culture. Thank you Selena.
And, much love to the artist of the mural representing Oak Cliff, TX. One of my favorite pieces of her.
Selena Gomez checks in on the Crisco Kidd block Party and talks about her ‘Neighbors 2’ experience, her top three favorite people she turned their Instagram notifications on for, and I asked her what kind of puppy she thinks would be the perfect one for us to adopt together the next time she’s in Dallas.
And, since Selena’s from Texas, find out what she says when I ask her whether or not she’s ever listened to DJ Screw!
Yooo, if you’re looking for a rollercoaster experience that you’ve NEVER done before, THIS IS IT. It’s called The New Revolution Virtual Reality Coaster and you can only ride it at Six Flags Over Texas.
What makes this ride so special is the fact it’s the first roller coaster of it’s kind in North America with 6 more on the way.
Big shout out to the people at Samsung Electronics America for making this virtual reality vision a reality. I’ve never been on a ride like it. No, literally. Take a few seconds and look at the videos and pics of what’s waiting for you and click here.
Not really a spoiler if you read comics but, if you don’t, think of this as more of an animated heads up so you know what’s going on when you go see the movie and how it’ll compare to the story line. Well done Bite Size Comics! Captain America: Civil War in theaters May 6.
This was recorded live on the Crisco Kidd Block Party five years ago after the announcement of the late and great Nate Dogg’s passing. Once again, salute to DJ Rockwell on the mix and may the creator of G-Funk rest in peace.
