“Soul Sisters’Radio”: Hosted by the daughters of soul legends Millie Jackson, James Brown and Isaac Hayes
Keisha Jackson, Dr. Yamma Brown, and Heather Hayes, the daughters of three iconic soul entertainers, have come together to host a radio show on Dash Radio. The sisters came together as a result of Isaac Hayes III, Heather’s brother, asking them if they were interested in this great opportunity. With the ladies already being familiar with each other, they all agreed. They have a lot in common and have a unique outlook on soul music, being the daughters of ultra-famous soul entertainers.
On the show, the ladies discuss various topics including current events, health, racism, sexism, parenting, and personal stories. Using the “sitting on the couch or in the kitchen” conversational style, the conversations flow naturally. Having different upbringings result in a topic being tackled from various angles, but uniquely from a black woman’s perspective. Of course they play music, but they aren’t interested in playing newer music from the 90’s or 2000’s. They primarily play music that pay homage to their parents. They go as far as the mid 80s. At the present time, the show is exclusively produced with in-house content, but soon they plan to include interviews and call-ins.
