Valerie Confections & Diane Birch
To kick off Valentine’s Day, Darin sits down with Valerie Gordon of Valerie Confections to chat about her lifelong dedication to giving the perfect gift. She reminisces on the early days of the business and shares the details on her new headquarters located in beautiful Glendale. In the second half of the show, we feature a live in-studio performance by Diane Birch, whose 2016 album is the self-produced Nous. Written and recorded mostly in Berlin, Nous draws on musical influences as varied and rich as Birch’s own international upbringing—from her childhood as a preacher’s daughter in Zimbabwe and South Africa, to her wedding dress and black-lipstick days as a Goth teen in Portland, to her late teens in L.A. where she paid her musical dues playing piano and singing covers in fancy hotels.
