'Krokodil' is a homemade opiate made from over-the-counter headache pills, iodine, gasoline, paint thinner or alcohol. After it’s injected the drug destroys users’ skin, turning it green and scaly.

In this episode we feature a short clip of the 60 minute interview Dr. Kwaku did at the beginning of Violet Palmer’s now 16 year career in the NBA as the only female full time ref of any background. Stop by the class Friday Night…he is making that one and many CD’s available for your archives, and working on making them available digitally on line for your smartphone or tablet!


Throwback time! This interview was from June 12, 2010 and features actor/director Rockmond Dunbar, now an Ambassador to Gambia, the West African Nation. (Click the play arrow under his pic!) He had been invited to be one of the celebrity judges to select the newest Final Four Faces of Johnson Products’ Great Model Search. The Grand Finale will honor the company’s founder and his wife, George and Joan Johnson who passed the baton to new owners Renee and Eric Brown. In this interview with Isidra Person-Lynn, he talks about his plans for Gambia, Soul Food, the movie Pastor Brown he directed and he reminisces about Johnson Products, his young hairstyles and Soul Train which JPC sponsored for many years.
