Soulbeat Week In Oakland And Worldwide Celebrate Soulbeat July 30th Oakland City Hall #Soulbeat Day

Soulbeat, the entertainment television station that was the go-to for Oaklanders to find out what was happening in our town during the 1990s, is celebrated this week, culminating with a special event at Oakland City Hall July 30th, 2021.

As the Soulbeat website explains,

Soul Beat, was the first Black owned cable TV network and was on air 24 hours a day, 7 days a week from 1978 to 2003. Soul Beat was on cable channel 37 and catered unapologetically to its city’s African American population, and provided the first television exposure for many local R&B and rap artists.]

Many Oaklanders appeared on Soulbeat, including me.  I talked about economic development problems in Oakland as a guest back in 1989.   But Soulbeat was known primarily for music and was the place to go to learn who was who in the then-emerging rap culture we now call Hip Hop.

So, if you see Chuck Johnson somewhere in Oakland, give him a high-five.

Stay tuned.

Note from Zennie62Media’s Zennie62 YouTube and Oakland News Now Today Blog SF Bay Area: this video-blog post demonstrates the full and live operation of the latest updated version of an experimental Zennie62Media , Inc. mobile media video-blogging system network that was launched June 2018. This is a major part of Zennie62Media , Inc.’s new and innovative approach to the production of news media. What we call “The Third Wave of Media”. The uploaded video is from a vlogger with the Zennie62 on YouTube Partner Channel, then uploaded to and formatted automatically at the Oakland News Now site and Zennie62-created and owned social media pages. The overall objective is smartphone-enabled, real-time, on the scene reporting of news, interviews, observations, and happenings anywhere in the World and within seconds and not hours. Now, news is reported with a smartphone: no heavy and expensive cameras or even a laptop are necessary. The secondary objective is faster, and very inexpensive media content news production and distribution. We have found there is a disconnect between post length and time to product and revenue generated. With this, the problem is far less, though by no means solved. Zennie62Media is constantly working to improve the system network coding and seeks interested content and media technology partners.
