Big Words I Know By Heart Episode 35: “Virtuoso”March 3, 2017
John Valby really is a living legend. More specifically, he’s a Clarence legend. Growing up in Clarence, everyone either knew him, knew of him, or knew about him. With over 40 albums and 40 years of wildly offensive songs, limericks and ditties, he’s not only talented and funny, but he perserveres. I was a little worried about him last year when he came on the show, but this year, he had a spring in his step. It sounds like his career and his life have hit a new crescendo. As the only guest on the show who gets a return ticket every season, it was good to see him again, and the same goes for my old editor from Night Life magazine Ed Honeck. There’s a lot of history with those two. That sort of comfortable dynamic between the three of us made for another (I hope) entertaining episode. See for yourself:
Thanks as always to producer Richard Wicka for being the glue that holds the show together, Ed for popping in with less than a week before he’s being pulled in 100 different directions for the Night Life Music & Club Awards, and last but not least Mr. Valby. May your career reach dizzier heights in the next year, and may your health continue to stymy a host who’s no stranger to the dangers of excess.
