In this week's Cover Story we catch up with R Dub! who had been quietly enjoying life in Brazil while still hosting his syndicated radio show "Sunday Nite Slow Jams." He's now back in the States doing what he loves most, programming two great radio stations, Jammin' Z90 and Magic 92.5 in San Diego. In Programming To Win, Bob Quick has ten New Year’s resolutions for our readers. What topics and aspects of your radio life could you work on 2013? Question of the Week asks: What are your goals both personally and professionally for 2013? Plus, Hot Shots and the FMQB History Page.   [more]
