Media Center producer and Blues Diva EC Scott was featured in a piece published in the current issue of East Palo Alto Today. Writer Cedric Thomas interviewed EC and gives us a wonderful sketch of EC's background, career growth and current plans. She grew up only permitted to sing gospel music and was never allowed to sing the "devil's music". However her godfather Slim Slaughter noticed and encouraged her talent from a very early age. She credits him with being her greatest musical influence. Well, that's a big shout out to Slim. Can you imagine where'd we be without Slim? (Don't forget to take time to mentor the young people you're around... you just never know, do you?)
EC has produced dozens of episodes of her award winning blues video show, The Jook Joint, right here at the Media Center. It is the only blues video show out there! It is shown on nearly 250 stations across the country and just finished up an 11 week stint on San Francisco's KOFY Channel 20.
As famous as EC is, she always comes home to the Media Center and we couldn't be more proud of her, what she has accomplished and of course we are very proud of the staff and volunteers that put in the time to make her show a winner. Check out the article: it's online; it's entertaining and features several pictures... one of EC with our very own Karen Adams.
