Growing up in New Orleans, I knew I wanted to be a DJ since I was a kid. Moved to Lafayette and eventually got the opportunity to be on-air and haven't looked back since. Being in radio, I've had the opportunity to DJ at most of the clubs in Lafayette as well as an occasional gig in Baton Rouge. I'm on the air every Monday through Friday from 10-2pm.
I have always loved records, shoes, and bacon. Fortunately, one of those obsessions has allowed me to make a decent living. In late 2003, I was given an opportunity to join Hot 107.9 as one of the original jocks when the station went live on the air. A decade after accepting a part-time weekend shift, taking my vitamins, drinking milk, and staying in school, I am now the Program Director of Hot 107.9. Join me on-air every weekday afternoon from 2p-6p, and in the mix live from 8p-12a for our 'Saturday Night In The City' mix show
I've always been asked - ‘Do you love your job?’ My response is this - Its not a job, its my way of life. Jobs are for people that punch a clock and sit in an office. I love being on the radio, talking to people and playing great music. 2nd question I always get asked - Why the name Speedy? My mother gave me the nickname ‘Speedy’ when I was a baby, because I ran before I walked. I'm from New Orleans, part of the Who Dat Nation… Have been ever since I was a kid watching Bobby Hebert on the field
Turn down the lights, and turn up the radio every Sunday night and join R Dub for four hours of Slow Jams from 8p-midnight.

Born and raised in South Louisiana, DJ Dolby D was instrumental in bringing the underground sounds of hip-hop from Houston to New Orleans into the mainstream. Labels like Cash Money, No Limit, Rap-A-Lot and many others had his number on speed dial as the go-to DJ when it was time to break their next hit.
I‘ve been in radio for over a decade, and part of the HOT 107-9 staff for three of those years. I started out doing nights, eventually becoming the morning show host. When I’m not on-air I enjoy playing basketball, tennis, golf, and working out at the gym. I also love to add to my music library, addicted to finding the next "big song." I also DJ in nightclubs across Acadiana. My proudest moment in my career came in the summer of 2013 when I was able to help get a family an air conditioner for their home
