Home Design Chat with Nancy - A Podcast

Several years ago I had a radio show on KKNT, 960 am, aired in Phoenix on Sunday afternoons.   We had fun, we had guests, and unfortunately, we came to an end! I always thought of bringing it back, and podcasting seemed to be the obvious venue.  

If you are remodeling, building new or just want to listen for the heck of it, you definitely will enjoy our informative and fun conversations on my podcast.  You can download them and listen anytime.
