Kelly Reports

“I never had a lot of time to get a haircut. I always had a hat on my head. People would laugh and say “you are growing a bush.” I would always wear a different hat; no one knew who my favorite team was. Back then I was known as J.D. Bushman.”

In the bushes with the Bushman! Detroit is: the Motor City, the birthplace of Motown and home to Bushman! FM 98 WJLB is where hundreds of thousands of Detroiters tune in to hear Bushman rock the airwaves. If you aren’t lucky enough to call Detroit home, you most certainly saw Bushman play himself in the movie, 8 Mile. “Kelly Reports” stepped to the mic to ask the questions that you want to know. Read more about the intensely talented man that never stops…moving, laughing, talking, mentoring, encouraging and getting better, one artist at a time. Kelly Reports: How did you get the name Bushman? Bushman: In North Carolina, my boss didn’t want me to leave work; he wanted me there all day (9am to 1am). I never had a lot of time to get a haircut. I always had a hat on my head. People would laugh and say “you are growing a bush.” I would always wear a different hat; no one knew who my favorite team was. Back then I was known as J.D. Bushman. My boss told me, I needed to go by one name. One day I got a haircut and met a woman who seemed so disappointed that I didn’t have hair. I ended up buying a wig, Bushman became a character and that’s how I was born. In addition to hosting weekly parties at popular Detroit hotspots, Bushman has translated his radio success over to the big screen, playing himself in the movie 8 Mile. He says he had no idea that the movie would be as big as it turned out to be and was most surprised to see that it took 13 hours to shoot a 2.5 minute scene!

Radio Personality Bushman

B: Playing me added authenticity to the movie. Eminem grew up here and remembered where he came from. The month the movie came out, WJLB got 1 million hits on its website. KR: Who are some of your favorite artists and tell us something funny that happened on air? B: Ludacris is a great interview and Trey Songz. While on my show, Trey sent a message on twitter that I had tickets to his concert and I immediately received 200 requests for tickets that I didn’t have! A little bit about the man we know as Bushman…He has been a DJ for 21 years, in Detroit for more than 15. He began in 8th grade, doing school parties…even “break danced many pounds ago”! How did he get to Detroit? “A networking fluke,” he tells me. He was the musical director at 102 Jams in North Carolina and a friend told him about a job opening at WJLB, (this was on the heels of his rejection letter from a station in Chicago.) He sent his tape in, didn’t tell anybody, got a call, got an interview and took over the airwaves, February 14, 1995. KR: How would you describe yourself? B: Accessible, approachable, fun and friendly—People can spot me all around the city. I am at Costco, Starbucks or walking around Downtown Detroit. I have remained the same person throughout. KR: Why do artist want to “get in the bushes?” B: I don’t ask questions that they expect, we just get on air and talk, and it is what it is. I just try to make it fun. WJLB has been here since dirt and is a Detroit heritage station; it’s a powerhouse, full of great talented people. KR: How much prep time goes into each show?

Continue Next Page>>


B: I am always watching news (CNN), reading gossip websites (Perez Hilton). I am always preparing for the next show. KR: Why do people listen to your show? B: People are stressed about jobs, money, losing their homes. Music can be soothing to the soul like butter cream frosting…takes it to another level, and (with me) everything relates to food, tantalizing your taste buds.

"Kelly Reports" is KR: What’s next for Bushman? B: This summer I will actively pursue my film career. I am a full time dad, trying to train, be healthy, we as a people need to focus on health. I will attend the BET awards in June. KR: What should folks know about Detroit? B: Don’t believe what’s in the news, the “D” is a beautiful place with lots to do, people are cool and great. One day the Detroit Lions will win, I got faith! You gotta have faith! Bushman ends our interview…he is expecting a phone call from Golden Globe winner/comedian/talk show host, Monique and yes, she will be “getting in the bushes!” Catch Bushman on FM 98 WJLB, Monday through Friday, from 2-6pm and Saturday, from 3-6pm.

McLaren Launches New Company and MP4-12C Supercar

Displax turns virtually any wall into a touchscreen

The launch of an entirely new automotive company; Mclaren Automotive, Ltd. and a new supercar, the MP4-12C, only 4,000 will be sold around the world. We are pretty sure this new Mclaren will be featured in some of the most LAVISH music videos.

Portuguese company Displax introduces a “skin” that can turn virtually any wall into a multi-touch display. The “skin” is thinner than polymer film that turns a surface, be it glass, plastic, wood, curved or flat, into a interactive touch screen. So sensitive, it even can detect when you blow on it.

HHI TiME Lab showcases monster 180degrees high-res display As 3D movie projecting continues to bloom, technicians and filmmakers are exploring new ways to create a deeper interaction between the viewers and the big screen. Researchers at the Fraunhofer Heinrich Hertz Institute (HHi) in Berlin are bringing the immersive cinema experience to a new level with a panoramic 3.35 by 12 meters, 180degrees high resolution display with outstanding image and sound quality.

Dubai Aquarium’s 270-degree glass walkthrough tunnel makes for incredible close-encounter experiences with some of the most fascinating underwater animals on the planet. A special ‘lunarcyclic’ lighting system will change the ambience of the tank depending on the time of day. It is an amazing site to see as you pass through glass walkways in the action of the marine life.


Dubai, UAE Coming Soon!

Hydropolis in Dubai will be the world's first luxury underwater hotel.

The Worlds 1st Underwater Hotel


Currently under construction in Dubai, Hydropolis will be the world's first luxury underwater hotel. It will include three elements: the land station, where guests will be welcomed, the connecting tunnel, which will transport people by train to the main area of the hotel, and the 220 suites within the submarine leisure complex. It is one of the largest contemporary construction projects in the world, covering an area of 260 hectares, about the size of London's Hyde Park. The upper stories of the land station house a variety of facilities, including a cosmetic surgery clinic, a marine biological research laboratory and conference facilities. In order to enter this surreal space, visitors will begin at the land station. This 120m woven, semicircular cylinder will arch over a multi-storey building. Hydropolis is taking shape 20m below the surface of the Persian Gulf, just off the Jumeirah Beach. The land belongs to His Highness General Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai, and was his last free beach property on this stretch of coast.
