Aretha Franklin on KMOJ Marketing Kit

One of our Underwriters, Renee Williams, shared this graphic from an underwriting marketing kit KMOJ used in 2011.  If you look closely, you’ll notice that it features, not only Luther Vandross and Beyonce’ but the Queen of Soul herself,  Aretha Franklin. Keep listening to KMOJ to hear her music and the many tributes to her.
