Host, Rhythm Revue

Felix Hernandez started his career as a producer while in college. In 1984, he was awarded the first of many NPR production grants to produce the national radio show Harlem Hit Parade. In 1989, Felix created and independently produced the award-winning radio series BluesStage, which had a 6 year run on over 200 NPR stations. BluesStage featured exclusive live performances by major and up-and-coming blues and R&B artists.

In 1986, Felix joined WBGO with the classic soul and dance music show Rhythm Revue. The program has also aired on New York's WBLS, WRKS ("Kiss-FM"), WTJM (Jammin' 105) as well as Sirius/XM.

In 1991, Felix started the Rhythm Revue Dance Party, an event which continues to sell out venues throughout the New York metro area. The event was important in the revival of the Roseland Ballroom, where Felix held his monthly Rhythm Revue party for 22 years.

Felix also produces concerts, music compilations, and all-star DJ events with New York's legendary club mixers. Felix is also developing a national franchise and working on a book based on his hundreds of interviews with R&B artists over the past three decades. He and his wife live in Brooklyn, where they raised three children now in the performing arts.
