Felix Hernandez - BIO

In 1983, Felix Hernandez began a two-year project traveling the U.S. collecting hundreds of hours of interviews with R&B artists. Some of the interview material was used for a 13-part radio documentary called Harlem Hit Parade, which was syndicated to 70 NPR stations in the mid-80's.

In 1986, Felix introduced Rhythm Revue, New York's first radio show devoted exclusively to classic soul and R&B. It premiered on WBGO. Starting in 1999, it also aired on New York stations WTJM (Jammin' 105), and WRKS (KISS-FM) and WBLS.

In 1989, Felix was awarded the first of many production grants from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting and the National Endowment for the Arts, to produce a weekly radio series of live blues and R&B. BluesStage, hosted by late Tony-winner Ruth Brown, ran six years on 200+ NPR stations. The series featured 234 unique episodes of live performances, recorded and produced by Hernandez on location nationwide.

In 1991, Felix did his first Rhythm Revue Dance Party. The event was a mainstay at Roseland Ballroom, where it was held for over two decades, up to 10 times a year. Felix's unique mix of classic soul, disco and funk consistently draws a crowd of 2,500 to 3,500 dancers per event.

Felix is the founder of a company that partners on a variety of projects with major venues, arts organizations, web companies, promoters and record companies.

Felix has dedicated much of his time to community and fundraising events, and started a scholarship fund in 2012.

Felix Hernandez's Rhythm Revue radio show, now in its 29th year on New York radio, is heard every Saturday 10AM-2PM on WBGO-FM.

Felix is currently working on a book. He lives in New York City with his wife and children. He's a graduate of Temple University in Philadelphia.

His parents met at a dance.
