This week on Valley Edition we take a look into our vault to three of what we consider the best segments on the program over the last year or so. We start the show off by returning to a conversation with the Masumoto family - Marcy, Nikiko and David Mas - about their book 'The Perfect Peach."  Then we turn to a chat with Gerald Haslam recalls the tragic story of Bakersfield athlete Leon Patterson with his book "Leon Patterson: A California Story."

Ending the program Fresno jazz musician Karen Marguth serenades us with her vocal stylings from her latest album "A Way With Words."
