Paul E. Kidd, Jr.
The community is invited to join the salute to Paul E. Kidd, Jr., for his outstanding contributions as a distinguished radio broadcaster, producer and executive for more than 50 years in Southern California.
The event will be held Sunday, October 30, at 3:30 p.m., at Mount Moriah Baptist Church, 4269 South Figueroa Street in Los Angeles. The Rev. Dr. Melvin Wade Sr. is host pastor.
"Paul Kidd's record speaks for itself, and he has given dedicated service to both the religious and community-at-large throughout Southern California at radio stations, KNOB, KGFJ, KFWB, KDAY, KACE and KMAX," said Quaford Coleman, event organizer.
"Starting out during the turbulent 1960's to the blissful 1990's, he built one of the strongest church radio broadcasting coalitions in the country. As an on air personality, announcer, program director and producer, he served as a source of inspiration and information, making an impact in the lives of countless men, women, boys and girls."
Many current gospel announcers, radio personalities, and gospel music artists credit Kidd with aiding their careers. The late Reverend James Cleveland commented, "Paul Kidd, Jr., is a friend to all gospel music artists." Also, Kidd was creator and executive producer of the syndicated radio show, ‘Amen Corner,' that aired weekly on 400 radio stations in 28 countries via the Armed Forces Radio Network.
"Paul and his lovely wife, Lillian, have experienced a season of health challenges, and our coming together for this celebration will be a source of encouragement to their lives. It will also be an excellent way of showing our appreciation to him for the gift he has been to the Southern California community over the years," said Coleman.
