I am in so much “SHOCK” right now and quite “SAD” for Brother Brian Carter. Living up here in New York I wasn’t able to thoroughly enjoy Brian’s skills when he was on in Philly. I was very happy for Brother Brian when I heard him on WBLS. I always enjoyed how he delivered his show on-air from his energy to his creativeness and even his passion you felt when he interacted with listeners. Brother Brian was “extremely” talented and he will be missed greatly.

My prayers & condolences goes out to the Carter Family, may God strengthen “ALL” of you in the loss of your love one. Thank you for sharing Brother Brian with us and the world.
R.I.P. Brian Carter.
