Meet the Host
I’m a Latina girl with big dreams that loves entertainment and Journalism. After a few semesters at Cerritos College I applied for an internship at Power 106 and I got it. I can’t even begin to explain what a great experience I had and how much I learned while I was there. When my internship ended I took all the things that I learned and applied them to my new endeavors. I now work on a few websites one particularly called LabLifePro in which I interview DJ’s and Producers. I also have my own website called FirmeRadioTV.com and there you can find all my interviews, entertainment news and personal experiences. As you may already know I’m the host of Firme Radio, which is now live streaming through PharcydeTV.com on Thursdays at 9:30p.m PST. The show is open format music, I have a guest DJ every week and a guest Artist. I also work for Mega 96.3/97.9 La Raza as a Board Operator here in Los Angeles.

Margaret Tra is a Sydney based journalist and is the director of Stimulated Media. She is also the creator of music website Stimulate Your Soul. She first started her career as a business journalist where she gained a wealth of experience, but her mind was constantly searching for more. This is where Stimulate Your Soul was born, a blog with just a mere hundred views, then turned into thousands. This was the turning point for Margaret, and little did she know from this blog would open up a new world and career for her. Margaret then decided that she wanted to live in London, so with no plan and no job to look forward to she packed her bags and took off for London for two years. Stimulate Your Soul grew immensely within the European market, with Margaret expanding her contacts within the music industry abroad by attending festivals for Stimulate Your Soul and working for music B2B magazine Audience Magazine, and as a News Editor at Making Music Foundation. Margaret has interviewed hundreds of influential musicians including in hip-hop, soul & RnB including N.W.A's DJ Yella, Boyz II Men, Dwele, The Pharcyde and Guilty Simpson to name a few. Currently Margaret is a Public Relations consultant for B2B companies, Editor at Stimulate Your Soul, blogger for various sites, as well as doing PR for musicians under her own company Stimulated Media.
