Good Morning, Folks! It’s Sunday and that’s an official day of rest. If you’re a believer in The Big Guy in the Sky, remember that even he (or she) took today off. The women of music will not be taking today off here. They are fully in charge.
Here’s your Sunday lineup:
11:00 a.m. Album of The Week: American Tune by Eva Cassidy NEW!
Eva Cassidy was a woman of extraordinary talent with a beautiful voice, and she died far too soon for most people to even know about her. ‘we here learned about her posthumously from a friend. This album is a really interesting album for its time. This kind of album is commonplace now, but it wasn’t so common at the time of its release. It’s a collection of her rehearsal tapes and some live performances that was released seven years after her death. But it’s not just a mere collection of songs thrown together. Give it a listen.
