Hey, I’m Val Palmieri, a 20 year old Broadcast Major.
I’ve been a member since last year, and I’ve had a show for only a semester so far.
My show, Val Palmieri’s “The Black No.1 Show” is on Mondays at 4p.m. – 6p.m. I’m a music and talk program. You’ll hear Iron Maiden, Guns N’ Roses, Aerosmith, Mötley Crüe, Slayer and plenty of the like! Also, you’ll get your latest metal and music news!
My show is unique because I can tie hard rock from the 1960’s and 70’s, and mix it with metal of the 1980’s through metal of today. I like combining old and new!
If I had to be stranded with one person, I would pick Jack Sparrow (a.k.a. Johnny Depp) …because apparently he’s used to that sort of thing. If Jack should fail to get us off the island, I think he’d make being stranded enjoyable otherwise.
Without question, my favorite band is Guns N’ Roses. Aerosmith is a very close second…but! Guns songs seem to reach me personally more often, I swear Axl and I must’ve gone through the same experiences sometimes. Not to mention the musicianship, it’s FANTASTIC! Anyone that can write such varied pieces as, “Sweet Child O’ Mine”, “Welcome To The Jungle”, “November Rain” and “Patience” all are, are truly a talent.
Outside of WPPJ, you can find me as a hostess at your local Outback Steakhouse…curse the need for money.
Ideally, I’d love to continue doing something like my radio show for the rest of my life. Whether it’s radio promotions, or being a radio show host, I really just want to play the music I love or spread the great word about hard-rock and metal and what it provides.
A few random things about me are…
– Pageant girl at ages 9 and 10, and got to speak on the PA Senate Floor for my speaking accomplishments at those pageants. (kinda ruins the whole rocker chick thing, doesn’t it?)
-Former street hockey player, only girl on my team…was I great? No. It was fun though.
