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.

The Americana Community Music Association holds its 6th Anniversary Concert this Saturday at All Faiths Unitarian Congregation in Fort Myers.  The non-profit brings together professional touring artists, local singer/songwriters and fans of the Americana/Folk/Roots music community for performances in a respectful, intimate setting.  The association’s Sunday songwriter circles also provide a supportive venue for songwriters to present new songs and foster their own creativity.
