We at Funk Gumbo Radio are fortunate to be friends with a very funny and highly innovative writer and self-animator Leesa Dean. We are also extremely pleased to endorse Leesa’s new and very funny animated Urban/Hip-Hop Web Series called ―ChilltownTV‖ and it’s equally as humorous spinoff called ―Lele’s Ratchet Advice Show‖. What we like the most about ChilltownTV is that it is not merely a parody of popular negative trends in Urban/Hip-Hop culture. Leesa has created well-written and timely digital vignettes of original, ambitious and outspoken characters interacting in their crazy world of ―Hood Hi-jinks‖. Leesa also knows how to poke fun at real multi-platinum Hip-Hop stars like super producer Scott Storch. And whereas some limited-animation Web Series might focus on one extended joke or story, Leesa easily switches back and forth from multiple characters and engaging storylines in her witty and adult ChilltownTV episodes. Currently, you can check out Episode #4 of ChilltownTV that was released on February 5, 2013. So without a doubt we really want all our domestic and international Funk Gumbo Radio listeners to take a break and checkout this Web site link: http://www.chilltowntv.com for ―ChilltownTV‖ and ―Lele’s Ratchet Advice Show‖. And we hope our fans keep enjoying the great and diverse funk/rock/Hip-Hop music we are playing.
