Kevin Woodson, who you know as Melvin from “Melvin’s Love Line” was one of the original Tom Joyner Morning Show cast members. 25 years ago today the very first TJMS aired and we’re taking a trip down memory lane.

“Melvin’s Love Line” offered relationship advice to listeners and of course it was hilarious!
