Here's a preview of an upcoming post (Wednesday) from the blog of Robert Rosen, my husband the writer (because it's about my new song and more!):
On Billie Holiday's Birthday
April 7 was Billie Holiday's 108th birthday, and Mary Lyn Maiscott and I celebrated by tuning in to St. James Infirmary, Michael J. Mand's show on OWWR. In his three-hour webcast, which begins 1 p.m. Eastern Time on Fridays, Michael plays an eclectic selection of rock, jazz, and blues—old classics as well as new material from unknown artists, superstars, and everyone in between. It's free-form radio at its best, and what I love about the show is that I always hear something interesting that I've never heard before.
On his April 7 show, Michael of course played Billie Holiday, along with some surprising covers of her music, like Southside Johnny's take on "These Foolish Things.” But the main reason we were listening is because Michael interviewed Mary Lyn, previewed her new single, "My Cousin Sings Harmony” (to be released April 13), and played two more of her songs, “Alithia's Flowers (Children of Uvalde)” and "Alexander/Isabella.”
The complete show is available on the player below; Mary Lyn's segment begins at 33:35, preceded by Bob Dylan's “Just Like a Woman” and followed by Fleetwood Mac's “Rhiannon” because Mary Lyn cited Stevie Nicks as one of her influences. I urge you to listen.
