It boasts the talents of the liveliest team on your airways bringing you news, chat, interviews and the freshest tunes from the Diaspora.

The evening kicks off with the dulcet tones of the diva girl herself - Steph Hernandez, from 6 till 7PM - the original Trinbago gal!

She brings you the flavas direct from the Caribbean and Africa like you were there yourself! Just sitting in yuh back yard or liming and vibesing on de beach! Though definitely with a local focus.

Steph has a finger on the pulse on what's happening locally, nationally and internationally - all from a black perspective.

And don't forget those exclusive interviews with some of the biggest names in African & Caribbean music.

Steph has previously interviewed the likes of LMS, Machel Montano, Beverley Knight, Daara J, Brian & Tony Gold, Doug E Fresh and Gregory Isaacs.

The full team hits you square in your eardrums from 7 till 8PM as Hopeton Gordon AKA The GMan, Steph Hernandez & DC Devon Daley.

Forget MTV Cribs bedrooms - this is where the magic happens!

Devon is definitely the dude who knows where its at on a black music tip. Let's dub him, Mr. Music Man!

We've got enough chat and tunes to make you forget what you had for your Sunday dinner! Steph & the Gman bring you the old school soul classics and Devon brings the new.

From Marvin Gaye to Maxwell - we play future classics today!

Then the finale hour from 8 till 9PM hits you like a whirlwind in the form of the GMan!

Yes, there is but one. The Gman has his unique blend of humour (notice the use of the word 'unique'), chat, interviews plus the funkiest Gospel tracks that will get any spirit grooving!

This hour of the show definitely comes with a health warning - be careful it's contagious!
