On the show: Kathy Marino talks about her company, CDJV (Corporate Development for Joint Ventures), and how her unconventional way of doing business has alot of the “who’s who” folks ringing her phone off the hook.
CDJV works behind the scenes specializing in conceptualizing and producing events that make waves, create buzz, and help worthy businesses and foundations grow. She’s sought after by the best of the best having worked behind the scenes with The Mighty Ducks and The Anaheim Angels as well as a number of other media outlets including radio.
Recently, CDJV created quite a buzz for an exclusive event featuring Harper’s Bazaar Magazine’s Executive Beauty Editor Avril Graham at the new Donna Karan New York store at South Coast Plaza. The event was a huge benefit to the well-known Orangewood Children’s Foundation, one of Gwen Stefani’s favorite charities.
Kathy will also be sharing about what’s happening to traditional media, how her agency was conceived, and the need to merge topics of inspiration during the recession. It’s like she shared with me, “You CAN predict the future…..by creating it”. 2009 is undoubtedly positioned to be her biggest and most exciting year.
Resilient in the face of a very challenging economy, she takes on the attitude of one of her favorite quotes: “We are all faced with a series of great opportunities brilliantly disguised as impossible situations”. CDJV can be found at www.cdjv.com.
We’re also chattin’ with pop music’s ellee ven.
ellee shares about her latest release, “DANGEROUS DIVERSION”, an album that proves that she can still surprise her fans with, yet again, a fresh new sound.

Coming from an interesting background made up of Spanish, Greek, Italian, Russian and German, the songstress admits, “It’s tough to keep up, but in the interest of creating something unique, I keep creating.” ellee ven’s writing is an admitted indulgence, fusing dance jams and ballads created with veteran and up and coming producers. Some of these are Reggie Dozier (Outkast, Joss Stone & Justin Timberlake), DJ Swamp, Antony Lee, DJ Solange, Trypsin & Prodéje. There has been no attempt at being “genre specific” as an artist, but instead a conscious attempt to stretch out and try different ideas without yielding to commercial pressures or trends . With this formula, she has managed to hone in on a genre all her own called “groovetonics”
Her previous release PROJECT 11 VOLUME 6 features the single ROLL THE DICE . The single features Prodéje and has 8 remixes of the dance jam ranging from trip hop to Latin house. Prodéje was in the SOUTH CENTRAL CARTEL, a group that stood alongside fellow early-’90s West Coast collectives such as NWA, Compton’s Most Wanted, and Above the Law, Spice 1 as gangsta rap pioneers.
