WHAT is Chocolate Radio?

Chocolate Radio is an online radio station catering to adult listeners. CR covers everything from lifestyle, sports, sex, music, female empowerment, and spiritual exploration, all delivered as purely great entertainment. We are a “one-stop-shop” radio station!  

Chocolate Radio is the brainchild of Nyomi Banxxx, a former adult film icon who transitioned into radio through her time at Playboy Radio and Sirius/XM. After spending 3 years at Playboy Radio, she ventured off to create her own station – and Chocolate Radio was born.

  Nyomi Banxxx created Chocolate Radio’s flagship show, “The Live Show,” during her tenure at Playboy Radio. As a fast-paced, segment-driven show, Nyomi shares her opinion on topics including sex, gossip, sports, social issues, and everything in between. Always putting a sexy spin on every topic covered, she gives her audience/listeners an opportunity to be a part of the show, giving them the virtual ability to take on the co-hosting seat.

WHO is Chocolate Radio?  

Wanting to share her airwaves with other industry greats and to promote additional opinions, Nyomi Banxxx invited her respected friends along on her new venture.

She called on the sexy Sapphire, a producer at Playboy Radio with her own show, “Erotic City,” to create a fiery late night talk show on Chocolate Radio. “Sapphire’s Earplay” is a no-holds-barred, up-tempo, “all over the place”, “put the kids to bed first” kind of show. From her adult film industry guests, to her giveaways on the air from condom sponsors, Sapphire’s young and energetic style keeps listeners coming back.

Nyomi also reached out adult industry legend Lexington Steele for his help and support of Chocolate Radio. Lex came through on both; in addition, his desire to unleash his sport knowledge on the air resulted in the creation of “4th and Goal.” Through his show, Lexington shows his fans and listeners that he is more than the king of the adult entertainment screen; he also packs an aural punch with his vast vocabulary and great knowledge of sports.

Chocolate Radio also presents a show tailored just for women. “Woman 2 Woman,” hosted by former runway and promotional model Dazell Yvette, deals with all types of women’s issues, from “girlfriend codes” and how to deal with a cheating husband, to single mothers’ issues. As a single mother herself, Dazell is never afraid to put her own life issues on public display. Bringing on many insightful women from every profession as guests, the round-table-style show makes female listeners sit back, listen, and get their minds working.

Chocolate Radio has added a new show; starting in October, “Boldness,” hosted by Marie Davis, will give listeners a voice, with the creation of a forum to talk amongst peers about spirituality.

Rounding up the week’s roster of shows is Nyomi and her resident DJ, “Da Overseer,” with their most interactive show, “Untapped”. “Untapped” is Chocolate Radio’s music-based show, where the duo preview music from new and independent artists, who send their music in from all over the world. After Nyomi gives the new track a spin on-air, she and her DJ offer their opinions, and then let listeners vote on the music: should they “Tap It,” or leave it “Untapped”? Nyomi and “The Overseer” also allow the artist to tell their story, giving listeners Chocolate Radio’s own version of “Behind The Music.”

  WHO do we cater to?

  Chocolate Radio caters to adult listeners between the ages of 21-60, who are interested in being educated on sex and relationships without judgment. The target audience is made up of those who would love to join in on the conversation and have an opinion and voice needing to be heard. They are the ones who love to support independent artists’ never-heard-before music and wish to have the power to say what music gets played. They are the ones who want to be able to go to that one station and get all their ears desire. They are the ones who want to feel like every show allows them to be the co-host and also a star.

WHAT do we need?

Chocolate Radio needs better equipment! We started from scratch with basic equipment allowing our voices to be heard, but as our audience grows, we now require: •

  •  Top of the line sound equipment to bring listeners something bigger and better.
  • A new phone system to allow listeners to hear and be heard, with the cleanest and clearest reception possible. 
  •  Cameras to allow our audience to not only listen, but also see live radio on the air via Ustream.tv. 
  • Cameras to allow our audience to not only listen, but also see live radio on the air via Ustream.tv. 
  • Software updates for both of our media outlets, Live365 and Ustream.tv.  

To give you the best show possible, we have to be the best. Without updated software and equipment, we have had to occasionally shut down a live show due to technical difficulties. Funds raised would help make this issue a thing of the past and allow us to deliver consistent, high quality shows to our listeners.

 In addition to our tech upgrades, we also intend to upgrade how Chocolate Radio operates and performs. To that end, we need your help to allow us to bring on the best PR/marketing firm we know to cater to our station’s needs and to help promote the station and all of its shows and events. We are also looking to build an upgraded, totally new, interactive website, which is easy to follow and wonderful to navigate.

 The upgrade to our media outlets, Live365 and Ustream.tv, will allow us to give our listeners what they want, but also provide a beneficial platform for the independent artists joining us on the royalties program. It will provide artists radio-play-based revenue for their hard work, as well as give our listeners and viewers better picture and streaming quality, whether they are listening from their computers or smart phones, or downloading their favorite podcast.

 WHY do we need your help? WHY do you need to listen to Chocolate Radio?

Simple - we are a growing online radio station trying to provide the biggest and best station available. We are very different from other stations because we don’t stick to one thing – Chocolate Radio is a one-stop-shop radio station tackling a variety of genres. We are not confined to labels like talk radio, sports talk, sex advice, or gossip, just like you have more than one interest. We are everything, from every situation, to every topic. We are a station where our sports show can turn political, and our live shows’ gossip can turn sexy… and it might just help a man or woman with their relationship.

 All of these upgrades are estimated to cost us over $30,000, and we can’t do it alone. We are not just asking for a donation to help us keep moving, but we are asking our listeners, fans, and everyone in between to become a part of the Chocolate Radio family and its evolution. Invest, tune in, and check us out. Be a part of Chocolate Radio. 

 WHEN do we need it? 

 We need it NOW! Chocolate Radio’s listener / viewer numbers are growing at an astounding rate, which is not only good for our audience, but also for the station. At this time, with over 80k listeners and viewers, but we want Chocolate Radio to continue to grow. We have been giving our listeners something we feel has been missing from radio - a one-stop-shop of adult programming. As we grow our listenership, we can now also reach out to advertisers and sponsors, who will help keep us on the air, as well as open and start new platforms for Chocolate Radio. The more we put into the station and its shows, the more our audience will get out of the experience. 

 WHAT can you get out of donating to Chocolate Radio 

 Becoming a part of the Chocolate Radio family by donating to this Kickstarter campaign isn’t just about giving money. Donating to our Kickstarter campaign will get you some of the coolest and sexiest gifts in return, including:

  •  A hot 12-month calendar of the Chocolate Radio Dolls. 
  • Having your name or company brand stitched into walls of Chocolate Radio for life. 
  •  An invitation to be in-studio to co-host a live show. 
  •  VIPs tickets to Thursday night comedy club events, perhaps sitting next to your favorite starlet or funny man. 

And more! 

 WHERE are we located? 

 Chocolate Radio is located in the heart of suburban Los Angeles, and it is accessible on your laptop, desk computer, your smartphone / iPhone, and other mobile devices. Chocolate Radio is on the go with you! 

Risks and challenges

As I mention before we've had a good start, but for us to continue and grow we need your help.

Our biggest challenges by far have been marketing the shows to a broader audience. Letting people know that Chocolate Radio is here and ready to entertain.

If we don't successfully reach our goal, all monies will be returned!
SO NO RISK TO YOU!

But When we successfully reach our goal, all the rewarded gifts will be provided within 30days after the Oct 9. Except the 2014 Calendars, which will come just in time for the new year.

Now We are reminding you that Chocolate Radio is up and running through this process. So we encourage you tune and "Get Addicted" to Chocolate Radio.
