This time on the program we’re featuring some more of my favorite female singers from the hi-fi era. Of course, you’re going to hear names and voices who are familiar to you. I’m also going to play for you some so-called hidden gems you might not be as familiar with. Performers who might not have had huge careers…maybe just an album or two…but who I think are just wonderful. We’ll hear from Doris Day, Billie Holiday, Yma Sumac, Sandy Warner, and more.
