E Dubble was introduced to DJ Pup Dawg who at the time was the Music Director at WJMN in Boston by a mutual friend. Upon meeting his boss he gave him 4 Mixtape releases at once which earned him a reply of “You don’t play huh?” as well as a guest appearance on the Sunday Night “Tropical Blends” show. After showing that he deserved to be on the stations roster a permanent slot was given to E Dubble. Most recently “Personality” has been added to his repertoire as he handles weekend shifts as well as random times throughout the week.
