Hello, my name is Wade “DJ Wade-O” Harris and I host the Wade-O Radio Show, where It’s More than Music…It’s Ministry! I believe that music is one of those rare art forms that can bring people of all races, nationalities and economic backgrounds together. In its purest form, music can inspire, encourage and evoke an emotional response that can resonate with the listener for hours and even days on end. Ministry takes that a step further. Ministry equips others with the skills to become all that God has destined for them to become. Although I grew up going to church in Columbus, Ohio, for the first 22 years of my life I didn’t have a true personal relationship with Jesus Christ. I knew who Jesus was, but I was not committed to serving Him. During my college years at Howard University and then going by the name DJ Oddysey, I hosted the #1 radio show on Howard’s student run radio station WHBC 830 AM. As such, I had the opportunity to share the stage or DJ events with and for the likes of Nas, Busta Rhymes, Alicia Keys, DJ Clue, Fabolous, DMX, Biz Markie, Mos Def, Baby Sham, Ashanti and Mobb Deep. Despite that “worldly success,” I was spiritually bankrupt. I was never truly at peace. I knew I needed to make a change in my life, but I was scared. I didn’t want to miss out on all of the fun. I thought that when I finally grew up, then I would get serious about serving the Lord. In 2002, my life changed. A good friend gave me a book written by former hip-hop superstar Ma$e entitled Revelations. Through Ma$e’s (now Pastor Mason Betha) testimony, I was re-introduced to Jesus Christ. I saw someone who had everything I was chasing: money, power and respect, yet gave it all up to serve the Lord. At that moment, I knew the Lord was calling me. This time, I accepted the Lord’s call and my life has not been the same ever since. Even though I’m still growing up, I’ve dedicated my life to telling others about Jesus Christ. I currently host and produce my own syndicated Christian Hip Hop radio show/podcast, The Wade-O Radio Show, which can be heard Saturday Evenings from 11 PM to 1 AM on the 5 stations in and around the NYC Metro Area owned by WRDR The Bridge-FM. Thru my program, I have had the opportunity to interview the likes of Tonex, Rockwilder, Dorinda Clark-Cole, Lecrae, Da T.R.U.T.H., KJ-52, Trip Lee, Canton Jones, the Frontlynaz, J.J. Hairston from Youthful Praise and many more. Currently the show has a potential reach of over 6.5 million people. The Lord has also allowed me to serve as the announcer and producer of my Pastor’s radio show entitled Inspired with Pastor David Jefferson Sr., which can be heard on New York City’s only 24-hour gospel station, WLIB 1190 AM twice a week.
