JTRP

JTRP.png

Keith Jackson aka JTRP is the founder, CEO, program director as well as an announcer for P-Funk Radio.Com. Keith created P-Funk Radio in September 2000 as simply his way of “Keeping The Funk Alive” as well as a platform for P-Funk artists to introduce their new music to Funkateers around the world.

 

The first five years P-Funk Radio was only broadcasting one night a week on Friday nights 10pm-2am broadcasting from his PlayPen Studios in Washington, D.C. In January 2006 P-Funk Radio began broadcasting 24 hours, 7 days a week with the evolution of new software that enabled the station to program the Funk by automation to keep the Funk flowing all the time, as well as the ability to do remote broadcast from concerts and special events. The Friday night Live show still continues to air with JTRP. P-Funk Radio now has two other Live broadcast shows on Wednesday and Saturday nights two other fellow Funk DJ’s.


Keith began his passion for radio in 1975 after graduation from high school in D.C. He attended Georgetown School of Science and Arts in D.C and studied Radio and TV production. Upon completing his course of study, he began doing free lance mobile DJ work for private events, and later doing fulltime work at several nightclubs in the Washington D.C. area. In 1980, he began doing weekend announcer work at the same radio station his instructor from broadcasting school worked at. There he sharpen his skills and began doing production and commercial voice overs. Keith continues to do voice overs to this day.


As well as doing DJ-Announcer work, Keith’s other passion is event planning and concert promotions. Keith and his company The Gents of Metro have produced numerous large scale parties and events in the D.C area for over 30 years. Keith also had the opportunity to promote two concerts with George Clinton and the P-Funk Allstars in Dayton, Ohio and Winston-Salem, North Carolina.


As a lover of P-Funk music since 1973, and his love for radio, P-Funk Radio is the perfect marriage for Keith. One that he hopes will continue to blossom for years to come!

MR CHRISTOPHER

Mr. Christopher is the creator and host of Funkatopia.com, a website supporting funk, R&B, and soul. A professional vocalist, DJ, and voiceover artist, Mr. Christopher started Funkatopia as a means to help support artists promote their material and also to help spread the word about great music in genres that didn't have good representation.

Then, unexpectedly, Prince began actively posting about Funkatopia on his Twitter and Facebook accounts regularly which took a once passion project and turned it into a funk music juggernaut. Funkatopia then took it to a new level and started live broadcasts and an online radio station available via the Funkatopia website and FUNKEDUP app.

FUNKEDUP broadcasts worldwide and has been downloaded around the world in over two dozen countries. Mr. Christopher is proud to be a Club Funkateer Ambassador in order to keep bringing the funk to the world via the Power of the One!
