Andre´ Joseph New Interview on It’s Just Us Radio Show 9/20/21

I returned to It’s Just Us Radio Show last night for my 2nd appearance on the show hosted by Charlene Bowden.

This full episode also features the legendary Keisha Knight Pulliam, best known as “Rudy” from The Cosby Show, and I’m proud to be sharing the same episode as her.
