WAOK’s Rob Redding tries his hand in dance music: ‘Unleash the Whip’

Rob redding

Rob Redding, whose show is heard locally at night on 1380/WAOK-AM, is best known as a journalist, author and a independent black talk show host who doesn’t always follow conventional wisdom.

Now he’s releasing a dance album with a racy title, “Unleash the Whip” on Dec. 4. The first single “Whip Him!” is co-produced with a Swedish producer DJ EVG. (Another local journalist with a musical side is HLN’s “Morning Express” host Robin Meade, who released a country album in 2010.)

“This first single will rock the dance clubs and the radio, while spreading consciousness about the Redding News Review radio show,” he wrote in a press release.

“Whip Him” is set to a progressive house track with a heavy trance influence, he said.

Redding said he worked with Bubba Sparxxx 14 years ago on his first album.

“Whip Him” will be available” via iTunes, SoundCloud and Beatport.

Redding’s talk show is also heard on SiriusXM 128 The Power while his news web site,, has been around for a decade.

Redding has written three online books this year: “Where’s the Change?: Why Neither Obama nor the GOP Can Solve America’s Problems,” “Resurrection: A Historical Anthology of two African-American Philosophers” and “Disrupter: Pathway to Political Independence.”
