Dwight Stone, aka D. Stone was born in Toronto, Canada and now residing in St. Louis, MO, is a radio personality with a unique love for the business. His love affair with radio started in high school. His dream of a career in radio became a reality after his first year in Oakwood College in Huntsville, Alabama. From there he landed positions at 3 commercial radio stations. In 2001 he headed to St. Louis for an on air position at KATZ-FM, “The Beat.” While at the Beat, D.Stone received #1 ratings for his primetime radio show. His on-air antics like “D.Stone Karaoke”, unscripted celebrities interviews, and fearlessness while live on location made listeners unaware on what he may do next.
But D. Stone’s silliness could only be matched by his seriousness and his faith, which was always in the mix. He also received several honors for his “Beat the Streets” community talk-show and town hall meetings. More than a radio personality, Hypeman D.Stone is a community servant. He volunteers with several community groups and serves as a youth leader at his church, Friendly Temple Missionary Baptist church-St. Louis. His passion for ministry shifted his focus from local radio to national syndication. Along with his co-host P Dub, D.Stone produces “The Praise Mixdown” – a premiere syndicated gospel mix show - now airing in over 10 markets.
Willie “P-Dub” Moore,
P-Dub, as he is affectionately called, is a St. Louis, Missouri native that was adopted as a baby and grew up in the church. He got his start as a child singing in the choir at Friendship Missionary Baptist Church in St. Louis, MO. But he was soon drawn to the sounds of Hip-Hop and signed his first record deal at the age of 12 in the 1990s with a small Midwest label and gained regional fame. Later, after graduating from the University of Mississippi-Oxford with a degree in Psychology, the Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity member signed his first major record deal with Universal Music as a rapper. He followed that up with a recording contract with Warner Brothers, but this time as an R&B singer.
In 2001, the married father of two made a great change in his life and returned home to St. Louis, MO. Since his return, in addition to co-hosting the Praise Mixdown with D. Stone, and making music to win souls, P-Dub has established several faith based ministries, the largest is the youth driven, Young, Fly and Saved movement which has a following of over 200,000. He is an ordained minister at Shalom Church City of Peace in Florissant, MO.
