Juicy Traffic Stories with Liz with Dr Elizabeth Escoto

Juicy Traffic Stories with Liz with Dr. Elizabeth Escoto
Dr Elizabeth Escoto

As humans, we spend over 50 percent of our time in our cars traveling on the road. The significance of this is that we establish a relationship with the road whether we like it or not. Experiences vary and are wide ranged, depending on a given day. Sometimes we witness horrible accidents - sometimes it’s dealing with someone else’s anger that one has to make peace with. Other times, being caught in traffic is just downright frustrating and one needs a lighthearted distraction as a way to relieve stress.

These stories were born from having lived through Chicago’s traffic. Some are humorous, some satirical, but all serve to be uplifting and light – just what you need while waiting for traffic to move! These stories are universal to humans across the globe no matter what city you are from.

Come join me and call in with your own stories – I’d love to hear from people with all kinds of traffic experiences or - just share a life story - share it all!

Dr. Elizabeth Escoto
Radio Talk Show Host, Musician

Dr. Elizabeth A. Escoto currently resides outside of Chicago with her husband. She was a musical child prodigy at age seven performing in choirs and churches within the United States, and has been a musician all her life. She plays piano, organ, guitar, harp and violin. She is currently an Organist and Choir Director for the "West Pullman Church of God” in Chicago. Liz has also hosted her own show on WYCA out of Chicago and is still on air.

She has traveled all over the country training and raising funds for musical trios. One of them, Pearls of Melody, raised money for the music department of Bay Ridge College in Texas. The recorded ‘45’ of the trio is now considered a classic. Another singing group she trained called Sacred Jewels, toured and sold LP's across the country receiving a free tour of the White House. Currently, Liz will be performing in the Community Restoration Choir “ALL GOD'S CHILDREN”, touring in Russia, Spain, England and many other countries (France/Germany/Mexico/Latin America). They tour mostly in the summer, and sing locally in churches welcoming all races and creeds. She will be playing violin duets with their local violinists, and might get to accompany on the piano as well.

She was also awarded “International Poet of the Year” and was on the same marquee as Tony Orlando & Dawn at the Coronado Inn in Florida. The following year she was on the same marquee as Florence Henderson of TV’s “Eight is Enough” and won for her poem called Katrina, a poem depicting the horrible hurricane that tore up New Orleans and other places. She now shares her poems mostly before Church audiences.
