I want to be like Val when I grow up in the Podcasting World! I love her voice and the quality of the sound is on point. Waiting for her to launch her Masters Class. Now that I have one day during the week off and the longest work commute I can listen in. One of the things I have wanted to do is learn more about artist and appreciate the African American No Stop Sign comments on what we all see, hear and know. Thanks Val. You need a Radio Show!
Wow I! I learned so much about entertainment and history in such a short space of time. This was both entertaining and uplifting. Valarie Johnson is a natural. She is easy on the ears, very knowledgeable and a great story teller.
