Music Business Radio: Valerie Day & John Smith


Our guests this week are Valerie Day and John Smith, the husband-and-wife team better known as the hit 80’s Grammy-nominated group, Nu Shooz. Originating from Oregon, they’ve often been credited with “rewriting the book” on Portland’s R&B sound. They’ll talk about how their songs were turned down by every major label and how local radio and a Dutch dance club mix brought them back to US attention with their songs spending multiple weeks on the Pop and R&B charts. Their story will inspire many young artists today.
