From 2004-2016, in between touring, Bleu was a radio DJ/host at WFDU 89.1FM out of Teaneck New Jersey. Following the blueprint of his radio mentors such as Sly Stone when he was a DJ at K-Soul before his fame, as well as Alison Steele & early Frankie Crocker, Bleu's unique blend of music & commentary made his broadcast quite popular with a worldwide audience.

The radio show called 'Code Bleu' was facilitated by 4 female co-hosts & featured a mix of Funk, Blues, Soul, Rock, Reggae & Gospel music with spotlights on James Brown, Jimi Hendrix & Sly Stone on each broadcast.

Also featured were in-depth celebrity interviews, many excerpts of which are available to hear upon request.
