If you asked Sanelli what his job is, he’ll probably say he’s a jeweler out of Naples,FL. But if you ask him, “what do you do”, you’ll find out he’s a sound guy. A REALLY good one too. He’s worked and lived all over the east coast, and has run sound from small venues to recording studios, to mega-churches. Rare is person that can run a soundboard, craft a diamond bracelet, and build a chicken coop, but that’s Sanelli. He hangs his hat here in southwest FL with his wife, three kids, two dogs, and assorted chickens and ducks, and I knew I wanted to have him on as soon as we started making the show.

My guest today is Valerie Alker, a name local listeners to WGCU will remember, because she was a longtime reporter and host on our airwaves. Val got started in radio in 1983 as a DJ at WPAS AM 1600 in Zephyrhills. From there she moved onto WMNF Community Radio in Tampa where she often hosted the Women's Show. She then moved over to WUSF, where she was a reporter and newsreader, before moving down this way to work at WSFP after spending a year or so as a boat bum.

Jeff McCullers (fifth generation Estero, Floridaian) grew up around citrus farming, fishing, construction, and well drilling. I love the fact that his three sentence bio includes his ten years as 4-H club member. He wrote two small books on local history while still in high school. A teacher and school administrator for 34 years, he's taught English, drama, journalism, stagecraft, and humanities. He’s also an amateur poet, photographer, and painter. While I’ve known Jeff, mostly via Facebook, for the past decade or so, I knew him by reputation all the way back to my high school years in the late 80's. All my friends who were doing theatre there spoke of him like he was a living legend, now that I’ve gotten to know him years later, they were not joking.
