    Street Soldiers is an Omega Boys Club sponsored, solutions oriented, weekly call-in show for youth, that focuses on the issues of violence, gangs, drugs, teen pregnancy and other topics which need attention in the community.

     

    The program began when rap performer Hammer approached Keith Naftly, 106.1 KMEL Program Director with the concept for a show that focuses on social concerns. The show was dubbed “Street Soldiers” after a song on one of Hammer’s albums. The first show aired in November, 1991 and was hosted by Hammer.

    The show was an instant success. After the first show with Hammer, Joseph Marshall, Co-Founder and Executive Director of the Omega Boys Club of San Francisco, was selected by the management at KMEL to be Hammer’s successor and permanent host of Street Soldiers. Dr. Marshall and the Omega Boys Club have been airing the “Street Soldiers” message ever since.

    1. During the election for President Obama’s many young people became engaged in politics, because they had a vision and hope for change. Now! that he is in office, the momentum from the young people have died. I am actively involved in the party, I write resolutions, which hopefully will bring some changes in our local community.

      How can we engage our young generation again, and how can we help the older generation to embrace a need to help our young generation join us collective on this platform ?
