There is a new Robin Hood in town only this time he is sharing information, and guess what, the geeks (and others) are out there and listening to this Free freak show for the masses. Old school, nu school, hip hop, pop... it's all there. The Morning Coffee With Mario Show has been broadcasting three days weekly since 2009 (or 2010) Develeoping a unique neourban community. Past artists and celebrities featured on the Morning Coffee With Mario Show include NFL Hall of Famer Warren Sapp, Lil Kim, Robin Thicke, Luenell, Teena Marie, Harvey Mason, Phil Perry, Chante Moore, Shark Tank Winners (Cousins Maine Lobster, Marz Sprays, Lollacup), Rahsaan Patterson, Rachelle Ferrell, Stephanie Mills, Nick Cannon, Ludacris, Charlie Wilson and more, but all the while remaining committed to indie and unsigned artists and entrepreneurs and their unsung stories. The key is simply talent and a lot of hard work.
Ofter referred to as "the crazy dude" and "edgy", Mario sees it as simple truths. "I tell it like it is." Mario quotes abound. “We believe Luck is when preparation meets opportunity. We believe a small group of dedicated individuals can go far. We offer no excuses, and we do not accept mediocrity. We believe in the constant struggle for Excellence.”
No wonder that there is a history of success here. At Howard University Mario was Dean's List all 4 years, graduated Magna Cum Laude and Phi Beta Kappa, was writer of Senior Class Song, and also elected to “Who's Who At US Universities and Colleges”. "I go about completing my goals the same way I clean a dirty pot. I rub real hard, real fast, for a real long time."
As a DJ, he began leading by example, developing unique creative uses of video and adding it to the growing portable show. As celebrity jobs including acting as DJ and videographer while producing “Eric Dickerson's Back To Camp Video” for the NFL Hall of Famer, local fame grew for the multiple soon to be legendary Pax Stereo Pajama Parties.
In 1993 the Pax Stereo indie music label was launched, signaling a new beginning, and showcasing newly emerging talents. While experiencing over 400,000 downloads and releasing nine CDs on his own Pax Stereo label, Mario had time to produce the initial recordings of the ghetto metal group Spade Ghetto Destruction (Zoo Records) and create a project with Richard Dedeaux of the legendary Watts Prophets. Releases by the Hemsley Foster Project, Tezman Vic, Richard Dedeaux and Edward Simpson are currently available on CDBaby, iTunes, and Amazon.com. Free downloads available at Pax Stereo Online (www.paxstereo.com) and Pax Stereo Tv (www.paxstereo.tv).
Mario is an App developer with the Apple Developer Program, and currently has over 30 Apps in development on five different platforms.
