In 2020, during the pandemic “shutdown”, Philly’s Funk Queen brought the Funk to the airwaves with her radio show, “The Funk Excursion w/ Badd Kitti”. The show can currently be heard every Friday from 9-10pm on PhillyCAM/WPPM FM 106.5. After two years on the air, and with a healthy archive of
material, Badd Kitti, aka Brieze Thompson, now plans to launch “The Funk Excursion” as a podcast. “It just made sense to offer the show in a more accessible format”, says Thompson, the show’s host and producer.
Each week, “The Funk Excursion” takes listeners on a musical journey through the history and culture of Funk, with thoughtfully curated topics, designed to be educational as well as entertaining. Badd Kitti’s lifelong love of Funk and her experience as a professional musician combine to offer a unique and insightful perspective on the topic. “People keep telling me that they learn something every time they listen to the show”, says Thompson, “and that was really my goal, because so little is known about Funk and its influence on popular music, not just in the U.S., but all over the world.”
Season 1 of “The Funk Excursion w/ Badd Kitti” will be available starting in January, 2023.
