Eric Forte (better known by his on-air alias E Luv) has been a staple in the terrestrial radio world in the Philadelphia, PA market for many years, and the listener base for his popular Monday night program The Luv Lounge continues to grow even larger after switching to Internet broadcasting and moving his talents to the south, Charlotte, NC to be exact. Although E Luv no longer dominates terrestrial radio, his voice is even more powerful in the virtual / online universe. No matter how popular E Luv's brand gets, one thing is for sure is that he has never forgotten where he's came from! E always reaches back and consistently shows support to his viewers, followers, small business owners and of course independent recording artists. While some legendary and veteran radio personalities / DJs have been known to turn their backs on the people that helped catapult their careers and have no problem snubbing their noses at up and coming artists, E Luv always pays respect to the underground, unsigned and unrecognized artists. This is one of the many reasons E remains beloved among listeners today.
E Luv periodically hosts “Artist Spotlight” segments where he showcases the music of rising undiscovered talent, not just in Charlotte, NC but across the nation. E Luv also interviews rising artists from time to time at 7:30 PM during The Luv Lounge broadcast on Monday nights. Some of the noteworthy artists E Luv has had on his program has been DomTMO AKA Young Dom (a New York based artist that has frequently shared the stage with former G-Unit artist Lloyd Banks), Nikia (the niece of the legendary Charlie Wilson of The Gap Band), K Davis the Hitman (the nephew of rap legend Doug E. Fresh) and many more. K Davis the Hitman's new single “DouGFresh” (which is produced by Doug E. Fresh himself) continues to get constant support on E Luv's independently owned radio station Xhale Radio!
Being that E Legendz is primarily a music based platform and resource for rising recording artists, E Legendz would like to salute the great E Luv for all his support to the artists and keeping great music (no matter how big or small the artist is) alive.
