Boss Dillinger & Real Deal Radio: The real deal in entertainment


Host of one of the hottest shows on the air right now, Boss Dillinger is a man of many crafts. He does just about everything under the sun, in addition to hosting “Real Deal Radio” every Saturday.


Broadcasting live from the station located on Loyola University’s campus, you just never know who will roll through the studio during his broadcasts. Flanked by some of the greatest personalities in the city, Boss makes it a point to give a voice to some of the area’s most well-known up and coming artists. His interviews have become known as some of the most fun and unique ones on the radio waves.

The Heat Magazine caught up with Boss to find out just what it is that makes him tick – as you can see, it is quite a bit:

THE HEAT MAGAZINE: Tell our readers about yourself – what all you do and all about your career, your show, etc.realdealcrew

BOSS DILLINGER: Well I’m a 28 year old hardworking man. When I’m not in the radio station, I’m working at one of my many jobs, either at the ARC of St. Charles, teaching music at L. W. Higgins High School or mentoring at risk juveniles. Yes, I’m a busy.

THE HEAT MAGAZINE: You’ve made a huge difference in local entertainment, in terms of the support Real Deal Radio gives to artists, particularly local ones. How did you bring that full circle?  

BOSS DILLINGER: When I started Real Deal Radio, I said that I would try my best to help all local and underground artists any way I can, so that has been my plan from day one and it has been going good.

THE HEAT MAGAZINE: How did Real Deal Radio get started?

BOSS DILLINGER: Well, before I started doing radio, I was hosting different events here and there. Then I got a chance to get on a radio show and realized it wasn’t for me. I could do my own thing, so I said who would I get to co-host, but Will and Mike. We’ve been friends since childhood. Then Ray would call in with good points, so we added her to the show.


THE HEAT MAGAZINE: If you could pick 3 artists to interview whom you haven’t already, who would that be?

BOSS DILLINGER: I would have to say if I could interview three artists, it would have to be Jay-Z, Rick Ross and Lil Wayne. I know I chose three rappers, but they come from where I come from and I know they could tell me how to get to where I need to be, as far for branding yourself, longevity and staying relevant – but if I could interview anyone, it would be Barack Obama.

THE HEAT MAGAZINE: Where do you hope to see Real Deal Radio in the next few years?  

BOSS DILLINGER: in the next few years, I hope to see Real Deal Radio making a change in the way people view mainstream radio. I would also like to see it on an FM station, with me winning a New Orleans Hip Hop Award, among many other things.
