Tangazo is a meeting place where we share ideas and explore efforts to improve our human conditions and quite simply make our lives better. All are welcome, none will be judged, but all are challenged to look beyond ourselves and our notions of how others think about issues of cultural​,​ political and social significance. We are building bridges of communication between the many groups that make up the St​. L​ouis Metropolitan Region by sharing and reflecting on the stories and lives of a diverse group of guests.

This episode of the KDHX podcast Tangazo was very special to me as it featured my son Christian Thompson as a guest along with Tony Davis, owner of the popular Prime 55 restaurant.
Chris and Tony joined Tim Person and I to talk about their popular podcast whatupdoeradio, which focuses on the “New Urban Man” 
Christian, along with the help of the other members of his broadcast crew, present another and admittedly young point of view on the issues facing urban America.
Interestingly, we agree on most things such as family values and racial justice but differ in our approaches to solving some of the issues the African American communities face in urban centers across the nation.
Whatupdoeradio, has benefitted from a close relationship with star hip hop artist Nelly and the St. Lunatics with one segment garnering over 1 million views on social media
Tony Davis, owner of Prime 55, was once manger to the St. Louis native Nelly, they along with Christian are long time friends.
