About Justin Kantor

Justin Kantor is a music journalist with a passion for in-depth artist interviews and reviews. Most of his interviews for Blogcritics can be heard on his Blog Talk Radio program, "Rhythmic Talk." Justin's work has been published in Wax Poetics, The All-Music Guide, and SoulMusic.com. A graduate of Berklee College of Music's Music Business and Management program, he honed his writing chops as a teenager—publishing "The Hip Key" magazine from 1992-1996. The publication, which was created out of his childhood home in Virginia Beach, reached a circulation of 10,000 by the time he was 16. At Berklee, Justin continued to perfect his craft with a series of 'Underrated Soul' features for The Groove from 1997-2003. This led to a companion TV show on Manhattan Neighborhood Network in 2002, as well as writing for the national Dance Music Authority (DMA). A self-described "obscure pop, dance, and R&B junkie," Justin also has penned liner notes for reissue labels such as Edsel Records and FunkyTownGrooves. He's excited to be a part of the BlogCritics team and indulge his musical fancies even further. Connect with him at his Facebook page, or via krystolfan@gmail.com.

    Fascinating account of what Little Peggy March has been doing all these years. She certainly has been a very busy and successful lady!

    I think it is totally amazing that someone like Peggy is so talented that she can write a song that good in just 20 minutes. I have heard other instances of people being able to do this. Like the song “All the gold in California” was written in 30 minutes on a plane ride. My hat is off to the people like Peggy, and I thank them.

    Thank you so much for this incredibly in depth article! What a great account of the career of an American legend. I’m so happy to hear about all the success she’s had, and I can’t wait to go out and find her new album.

  • Thank you all! Also check page two of the article for the BlogTalkRadio player, if you want to hear the full interview (including some questions that I couldn’t fit into the article for length considerations!) You can purchase the new album digitally on Amazon. Don’t know why it’s not showing up anymore with the article; I had included it! The physical CD is available on Amazon’s UK site, or on Peggy’s official site.

  • Leland Williams Jr,

    a nice woman!
