Frankie Hollywood Rodriguez 001 – WBMX.COM (8/4 and 8/5 2017)

By on August 7, 2017


When you think of Chicago radio and all the on-air talents, few if any started out as a sucessful club DJ. Even less have ever had a hit record. Frankie Hollywood Rodriguez is one of the few who has.

Frankie started out mixing on WBMX. Once WBMX was sold in Oct. 1988, Frankie would move over to B96 as a mix show dj and set that station up for its most successful ratings ever.

Frankie’s personality got him in the door of the studio where he’d do the 6-10 shift then, when Eddie & JoBo were sent on hiatus for a few years, Frankie was thrown into doing mornings. From there, Frankie’s talents took him damn near close to the top of the ratings, he also hit the studio to produce two hit records and began to get involved with video production. Today, Frankie’s work is seen on TV around the world today.

One of the first to dive into video mixing, Frankie’s video mixes take the club and the DJ to a whole new level. You can check some of those video mixes out and more below.

Now Frankie’s back and he kicks the weekend off here on 102.3 FM and WBMX with his show at 10PM on Friday nights.

Then, he comes back for more at 6PM on Saturdays to lead into the Saturday Night Live Ain’ No Jive Chicago Dance Party.

Listen online in the WBMX APP, the WCKG APP for Android or iPhone and the iHeartRadio APP (search WCKG).
