GoGoRadioLIVE, an internet radio station housed within the revitalized Shops at Iverson (formerly known as Iverson Mall on Branch Avenue), considers itself the official station of go-go music and culture in the D.C. region.
With go-go music as popular as ever, GoGoRadioLIVE’s “Coffee & Crank,” the station’s flagship show, has amassed a loyal audience.
Hosted by D.C.’s own DJ Frank White, “Coffee & Crank” is broadcasted live via GoGoRadio LIVE’s mobile and video streamed live via YouTube and Facebook every Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 10 a.m.-2 p.m., reaching up to 25,000 people per show.
White often interacts with the audience, and his show has been shared hundreds of times on social media.
“We get people from London to Africa to Hawaii to Japan, all mixed in with local lovers of go-go music,” White said. “Watching the love evolve to other cultures is a beautiful thing to witness. At first, we started streaming live on Facebook but then our numbers got so huge, Facebook actually started kicking 3,000-4,000 people per show, so we began streaming on YouTube as well.”
GoGoRadioLIVE said it is currently liked and followed on Facebook by more than 39,000 fans and growing, largely due to the popularity of “Coffee & Crank.”
