Following early exposure to folk music in a series of East Coast coffeehouses, Valerie has been a long time fan, promoter and concert producer of local, national and international Celtic and American Trad. A former past president of both the Missouri Valley Folklife Society and CrossCurrents, and a KKFI listener from the very beginning, she first got involved at the station as a substitute host for Foolkiller Folk and, with her husband Mark, eventually ended up as a part of the regular group of Foolkiller Folk program hosts, for which they play primarily Celtic Trad. A KKFI 90.1 FM Active Member, Valerie is a committed station volunteer and financial supporter and has served on a number of committees and the Board. She & Mark still produce the occasional house concert and their house is always open to Trad musicians passing through
