    I enjoyed hearing about Mr. Jobie martin\'s accomplishments and i remember watching his television show while living in Jackson Miss. He even let my brother and his band perform once it was something i still reminisce about to this day, when they announced Charles Beasley or don Thigpen and the young breeds we had all the neighbors watching this black man hosting his own show and extending a hand to the young black youths it was history being made two fold for us. congratulations on your many accomplishments Mr. Martin and God Bless you!!!
