Help WHUR Radio Celebrate Melvin Lindsey’s Quiet Storm

Do you remember Washington D.C. in 1976? If you do, then you remember the voice of a young college student at Howard University by the name of Melvin Lindsey. It was the first time we heard his uniquely distinct silky smooth voice as he introduced us to a world of definitive music that captured and chronicled the sound and soul of D.C. at night.

This young man was on the precipice of doing two things that had never been done since the inception of music radio programing. Not only did Melvin Lindsey create and develop a new radio format, “The Quiet Storm,” which would later be copied by others and broadcast on radio stations throughout the country and the world, he also got the masses in large numbers to listen to late night radio religiously.

If you were one of the people who listened to Melvin Lindsey’s Quiet Storm back in the day, call (802) 892-0059 to record and share your memories with us. You as a listener were one of the most important parts of “The Storm.”
