The Upper Class family sends our love, respect and congratulations to Roland Pemberton aka Cadence Weapon and the Pemberton family!
Teddy Pemberton, Rollie’s dad, was a pioneering college radio DJ in Edmonton, and is being honoured this week at the Stylus Awards. He went by T.E.D.D.Y. and is credited with not only helping launch CJSR-FM back in 1980, birthing one of Canada’s finest college radio stations, but is known as the man who brought hip hop, jazz, funk, rhythm and blues and reggae to Alberta through his show The Black Experience In Sound.
Tonight, May 31, Canada’s National DJ Awards, the Stylus Awards, will be inducting T.E.D.D.Y. into the Hall Of Fame as part of their 2010 Awards Show. Roland Pemberton along with members of his family will be in attendance at the Awards in Toronto, and Cadence will accept the award on behalf of his T.E.D.D.Y.
