WTMD’s Baltimore Alternative Music Awards – February 15, 2018
WTMD’s Baltimore Alternative Music Awards is a new way of showcasing the area’s best music – from albums to songs to live performances – in our format. Some of the best music in the world is made right here in our backyard, and WTMD is one of its biggest supporters.
For decades, Milton Duggar has been a tireless champion of Baltimore’s soul and rhythm and blues musicians.
In 1967, he founded Bay Sound Records, which quickly became one of the area’s top record labels. Its roster included the Bleu Lights, (pronounced “Blue Lights”), Clay Hunt, the Fuzzy Kane Trio and the Chaumonts. Milton himself was the singer of the Chaumonts, a racially integrated soul band featuring a teenage guitarist named Carl Filipiak.
Milton recorded with George Massenburg, who would go on to become one of the world’s best known and most innovative recording engineers.
For years, he was a host of a monthly Doo-Wop radio show on WEAA.
Today, more than 50 years after he founded Bay Sound Records, Milton continues to support Baltimore soul and R&B artists and is a vital part of this city’s musical history.
We are proud to honor Milton Dugger as the recipient of the very first WTMD lifetime achievement award.
*The awards are for music released and performed in 2017.
