FUDGE Malloy, aka, Shawn P Greene, began his radio career in 1998 at a small radio station in Central Florida on NewsTalk 1450 WWJB-AM, as a part-time board operator during the Christmas weekend, pulling 12 hour shifts alongside his brother Legacy, aka, Brandon Greene. Legacy had been working at the station already for a few years, when FUDGE was asked to help during the holidays. After a few more times on the board, FUDGE got the regular gig as the Sunday Morning board operator. FUDGE got a free 1-hour spot on the station and produced his first live radio show called “The Sunday Morning Resurrection” with Shawn Greene. The show aired for 2 years playing Christian Contemporary and Rock music. Radio automation replaced the Sunday morning line-ups and the show was cancelled in 2001. FUDGE continued to assist the station from time-to-time during special events, as well as, severe weather situations including in 2004 when 3 hurricanes crossed the state Florida knocking out power for almost 6 weeks straight.
Still itching to return to radio on a more consistant basis, FUDGE started his own internet radio station called Flavor Radio, playing mostly Christian Hip Hop music and DJ mixes. Flavor Radio was launched in response to the lack of airplay terrestrial radio was giving the genre. The first set of interviews and music was collected at the 2004 Flavor Fest in Tampa, FL and first aired on November 4, 2004. DJ I Rock Jesus was the first ever DJ aired on Flavor Radio in New Year’s Eve 2004. Since then Flavor Radio aired mixtapes, mixshows, podcasts, interviews and music covering the CHH culture from Tampa, FL to New York City. In 2008, FUDGE created an original program called “The Spice Rack Show” with co-host CHAPPU, playing Christian HipHop and Rock music. In 2008, another project FUDGE co-founded was the One Accord DJ Alliance, alongside DJ Will from Jacksonville and DJ Lace.
After working for 4 terrestrial radio stations from 1998 through 2007, FUDGE focused all his efforts online, using social media and special events networking. FUDGE made a move back to his hometown of Buffalo, NY in 2010 where he restructured and relocated his operations for FRN and OADA, and localized new brands: the quarterly HipHop event called “5th Fridays @ The Bread” and a new radio show called “The Shout Out” with co-host Constant Battle. The new show has been in syndication since 2014 and contiues to expand its listenership on a weekly basis. FUDGE also is the drummer for his church.
