Tangazo Podcast to join the weekly radio broadcast schedule
KDHX is excited to announce that Tangazo will be joining the radio line-up! Tangazo will join the regular broadcast lineup starting February 15, 2024 on 88.1 KDHX. The live show will air each Thursday from Noon to 2 p.m. on 88.1 FM and worldwide at kdhx.org.
Tangazo, is a group discussion-based program created as a podcast for KDHX in March 2018 by its host and producer, Hank Thompson.
“Tangazo is important to the African American community because it gives Black people an unbridled voice on issues that are important to our wellbeing,” said Thompson, who was recently nominated for the National Black Radio Hall of Fame. “Tangazo will help build bridges of communication between the many groups that make up the St. Louis region.”
Thompson describes Tangazo as “a meeting place where we share ideas and explore efforts to improve our human conditions and quite simply make our lives better. All are welcome, none will be judged, but all are challenged to look beyond ourselves and our notions of how others think about issues of cultural, political, and social significance.”
With 148 podcast episodes already recorded, Tangazo will remain available in a podcast format, therefore extending its reach to an even wider audience.
“We are extremely excited to have Tangazo join the radio line-up,” said KDHX Community Connections Director Ronnie Wisdom. “As we continue to ensure that the voices heard on KDHX truly reflect the entire listening audience, we know that Hank will provide a platform to bring even more of the community together in a space where meaningful discussions can take place.”
