Foster has been a supporter of house music since her youth, acting as a promoter and producer with the Chosen Few Picnic each year in Jackson Park. Blackful became well known in the City as a radio personality and music entrepreneur when he co-hosted WGCI’s Bad Boy Radio during the early 2000s. Both were avid listeners of hot mix radio as teenagers, noting the critical role that cassette tapes played in disseminating Chicago’s house sounds.
