Deborah Kobylt LIVE: Carolyn Johnson

I love Harlem, have lived there, and have always had a passion for the people, culture, and history there. So naturally, I jumped at the chance to interview Carolyn Johnson, creator of Harlem-Opoly, an exciting board game based on the Harlem Renaissance, which includes some of the famous personalities and landmarks Harlem, from Josephine Baker to the Apollo Theater.

Carolyn is also President and Founder of Welcome to Harlem, focusing on the rich history and cultural diversity of Harlem, and also Harlem Roots, which teaches kids about Harlem’s history. In this clip, we talk about Carolyn’s passion for Harlem, what has encouraged its resurgence, and she gives us a quick history lesson into this fascinating part of NYC.

Deborah Kobylt LIVE: Mark Thompson

You’re on the air🎙️

Please welcome to our show Mark Thompson, world-renowned radio personality heard every morning for 25 years on the nationally syndicated Mark and Brian Show originating from KLOS Radio, and Mark joins us to talk about his book, “DON’T BUMP THE RECORD, KID,” and it’s a true inside look into what goes on in the radio biz, both on and off the air!

I’m no stranger to Los Angeles radio, being married to half of the longest-running radio team in the history of radio, John Kobylt of “The John and Ken Show,” and John started reading this book even before I did.

This is more than a personal memoir, Mark’s book offers a fascinating behind-the-scenes look at morning drive, the celebrities, studio politics, passionate fans, and the incredible live music & comedy bits that pumped life into two and half decades of entertainment. Mark & Brian were indicted into the Radio Hall of Fame as well. As an aside, John and Ken have been twice nominated, can the third time be the charm?

We look forward to our interview with Mark, and hope you’ll join us and listen.
