Best Radio Music Show 

Underground Heat

The right-hand side of the dial has few champions of the little guy these days; of the ones out there, it's hard to imagine any of them flourishing. Thriving in the rough is what makes Kenny Diamondz, host of KPRS' Underground Heat, glitter all the more brightly. Every Friday and Saturday night from midnight to 1 a.m., Diamondz and his cohorts, including the irrepressible Bryan B. Shynin', load up the disc changer with heroic cuts from little-known and unsigned artists from all over the world — many of them hailing from the wilds of KC. When else are you going to hear 27th and Van Brunt shouted out on the radio? Or, for that matter, Stik Figa's "Caked Up" remix featuring Ron Ron? (See "Best Song.") With would-be club anthems, from crews on the East Side all the way over to the Kansas City suburbs of Memphis, Tennessee, and New Orleans, Louisiana, Underground Heat is the kind of show that keeps young'uns up past bedtime, listening on their headphones, dreaming of one day being on the radio themselves. At least, that's what it does to us.
