Brandi Carlile - FUV Live at Electric Lady Studios - 2015

by Rita Houston

"The sixth one is the charm," Brandi Carlile said to me of her new album, The Firewatcher's Daughter, and her biggest seller to date. It's her first on on independent label and clearly the one she feels best represents her broad style and rock and roll spirit. Her songs have always struck me as among the most honest, emotional and passionate out there.

The Big Broadcast for March 29th: You're Perfect!

by Rich Conaty

I never met Alberta Hunter, although she was still performing when I should have known better. I even reviewed a concert video of hers for Video Review Magazine. Her home base was The Cookery on University Place, and she was there as late as 1981. I was fortunate to see Red Norvo at Town Hall, a wonderful show that included Benny Carter, and met him briefly at a jazz festival in Florida a few years later. Lyricist Edward Eliscu, another of the half dozen of tonight's birthday celebrants, was a guest on the 1000th "Big Broadcast" in the fall of 1992.
