Women’s Week Rolls On! Big Mama Thornton is our Tuesday Bluesday Artist, and Aretha is in The Spotlight A Bit Later, Tuesday, July 21, 2020.

Good Morning, Ungovernables! It’s Women’s Week and we’re paying homage today to two women pioneers in music. Elvis wasn’t the first to sing Hound Dog.

Here’s your Tuesday Bluesday line-up!

11:00 a.m.   Tuesday Bluesday! Willie Mae “Big Mama” Thornton with the Muddy Waters Blues Band (1966)   NEW!

Big Mama was the real deal. She sang Lieber & Stoller’s Hound Dog back in 1953, three years before Elvis hit the airwaves with the song, and made rock n’ roll history. Not only did she sing, but she played the drums and the harmonica. The pioneers of rock & roll? They know it all started with the blues and gospel. In case you haven’t figured it out, Black Music Matters.

3:00 p.m.     Album of the Week: Western Wall: The Tuscon Sessions by Linda Ronstadt & Emmylou Harris

If you’ve overlooked this album, shame on you. That’s all I’m saying. You have at least two more airings after today to rectify that little hole in your musical life.

7:00 p.m.    In the Spotlight: The Music of Aretha Franklin   NEW!

The Queen of Soul takes her turn in The Spotlight for the first time during Women’s Week, and it won’t be the last. We promise.

Listen, we added a bunch of listeners from Serbia last week. They’ve been back every day. What’s wrong with the U.S.? Bad taste in music? Perhaps, you like DJ’s with diahrrhea of the mouth. Perhaps you like continual commercials. Whatever.
