The road to becoming TastyKeish has been years in the making.
Keisha Dutes is a graduate of CUNY Brooklyn College with a degree in TV/Radio. Throughout her college career, she found her niche in college radio stations and began honing her personality as an energetic, opinionated, funny programmer and thorough interviewer.
At Ballibay Camp for the Fine and Performing Arts, Dutes taught a successful 10 week radio program for children 7-16 years old which included producing and broadcasting live radio. After her teaching exper
During her 7 year tenure at WBAI 99.5 FM in New York, Keisha fully embraced the TastyKeish moniker and became a leader within the ever changing group of hosts on Rise Up Radio. Touching on police brutality, race, independent music, and artists from all over the world- Rise Up Radio was the only youth produced program on “free speech radio’s” 50+ year old Pacifica Network station WBAI.
Simultaneously, she served as video correspondent, travelling with Society HAE, a website focused on art, fashion, and culture in the African diaspora.
Upon TastyKeish’s departure from WBAI, she embarked on the next leg of her radio journey. She partnered with producer, Coole High and a group of creatives to start Bondfire Radio, a full service radio station with live programming to combat the zombification of commercial radio, in 2013. TastyKeish is happiest on the air live every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday 10 AM EST on her morning show TK in the AM. Co-hosted and music supervised by long time collaborator Conscious, together they engage listeners live on air via social media and their chatroom. TastyKeish also continues the legacy of teaching by providing mentorship to interns daily.
Among her production duties at Bondfire Radio, TastyKeish is also Program Director. She finds joy in keeping her ears open for potential new programming, working with talent, and scheduling programs and special audio events.

Currently TK is working on independent projects, growing Bondfire Radio, and is available for freelance or salaried positions in front of or behind the mic.
