Jay King Honors Media Pioneer Lee Bailey on The Jay King Radio Network

Lee Bailey

Hollywood, CA – Before TMZ, bloggers and syndicated radio, urbanites would sit anxiously by their radio at a designated time to hear who was doing what, how and to who via a show called Radioscope. The year was 1983 and Radioscope scooped the news and entertainment gossip as the first syndicated urban entertainment magazine on the air! Then in 1996, EURweb.com took the agenda viral, with a online format that provided news, entertainment, gossip and editorial for an audience now in the millions.

And the man behind it all is Lee Bailey, a visionary with a bellowing voice that rolls across the airwaves. As the founder of Lee Bailey Communications, Inc., Bailey Broadcasting Services and Rabercom, Bailey has molded a communications empire that services not only listeners and readers, but also a plethora of media including radio, tv and bloggers who all count on him and his staff for up-to-the-minute news.

Paul Laurence is a native of New York City where he learned to play piano from Valerie Simpson at Harlem’s White Rock Baptist Church. Laurence became known in the ’80s for writing and producing hit songs for Freddie Jackson, Melba Moore, Lillo Thomas, Stephanie Mills and Evelyn King. Jackson’s “Jam Tonight,” “Rock Me Tonight (For Old Time’s Sake)” and “Tasty Love” were written and co-written by Laurence. Mills’ “(You Putting) A Rush On Me” and King’s “I’m In Love” are also credited to Laurence. As a producer he was responsible for Meli’sa Morgan’s cover of “Do Me Baby.” Haven’t You Heard was his 1985 solo debut that revealed Laurence as a better commercial bet behind the scenes. However, “Strung Out” would become a permanent club/community classic and Laurence’s signature song as a solo performer. Laurence had a second and final solo album with 1989’s Underexposed.
