Gospel Housing Authority
Fridays 1:15AM to 6:00AM Eastern Time
DJ D-Real is the host of Gospel Housing Authority, which features Gospel music in its many forms: Gospel Rap, R&P (Rhythm and praise), Contemporary, Traditional and Club.
Born and raised in Newark, NJ, DJ D-Real has been in the music business for over 15 years as both a DJ and MC. For his first venture in the radio business, DJ D-Real carried records for his good friend DJ Curt Gilmore at a weekly after-work party at Rueben’s in Newark. He then joined him in the mobile DJ business and learned to DJ while working as an MC with Curt and DJ’s Will Gibbs, Charles Gatling, Sharif Foster and Naim Johnson.
Outside of the station, DJ D-Real assists in the youth ministry for St. James AME Church in Newark. His youth ministry had a vision to start a youth church, and DJ D-Real provided the music, starting his journey as a Gospel DJ. One of the parents at the church recommended a job at Branch Brook Park Roller Skating, which has their own Gospel night. He has been there ever since and took on the name one of the kids gave him – D- REAL (Thanks Chaz!)
