About Flava News



Flava News was established in February of 2007, under the umbrella of Flava Coffee House, Seattle, WA (June 2003-2008).  During the years of the coffee house Susan Koshi aka Lady Flava established herself as a true cheerleader of the unknown artists of all art forms.  Hosting her first event under the name of On The 1 Productions with 3 other partners, was a jazz cruise on the Puget Sound.  She was a well established and sought after book reviewer of minority literature, servicing mostly African American self published authors.  March of 2008 she hosted a national literary conference that gain recognition and support of the Mayor’s Culture Affairs & Arts Office.  During the days of Flava Coffee House she hosted a very diverse open mic every  Friday called “Flava of Expression” to selling a variety of art and art forms at the coffee house.  Flava Coffee House became the home away from home for many eclectic and creative souls.

In June 2008 Lady Flava made the business decision to close the doors of Flava Coffee House in North Seattle.  Although the physical building no longer exists, the love and passion for the arts was established within her walls and grew into what is now as Flava News/Flava News Radio.

Taking her love and passion of the arts she step out on the journey to find ways to support the unknown artists.  Lady Flava hit the social networks hard and found herself starting her own online radio show originally called the Mosaic Show with Flava & LA in November of 2009 to changing it to simply Flava News Radio with a variety of shows under it’s umbrella.  All the shows feature only the music of underground/independent artists or talk shows on subjects pertaining to the artistic industry.  Lady Flava has gained the respect and recognition of many of her peers and more established members of the entertainment/arts community across the globe.

November 2011 Flava News transitioned into a members only site and radio station.  Stepping out on faith that this change would be successful she moves into 2012 with over 100 + members paying members of what is now know as the Flava News Movement.  The numbers continue to grow.

Lady Flava and Flava News is committed to exploring creative ways and connecting with variety of resources to continue to open the doors for positive exposure.  Featuring the members on the Flava News Website to Flava News Radio and beyond.  Establishing Flava News as an Artist Service Provider, Lady Flava is also able to offer affordable services beyond what the membership will provide.

The passion of the art and artists is always felt and will continue to develop into a strong force in the global arts community.

Stay connected to Flava News and explore the talents that have joined forces with this grassroots movement.

Lady Flava established the phrase during the days of Flava Coffee House, as it still represents the sentiments of Flava News…

Flava is a taste, a style, a feeling…What’s your flava?
