On next week’s The Halli Casser-Jayne Show, get ready to put another dime in the jukebox, baby. That’s right: on July 18th at 3 p.m. EST and July 19th at 9 p.m. EST, we’ll be bringing you GIRLS LIKE US…Women Who Have Rocked the Music World. The show is centered around the NY Times Bestseller GIRLS LIKE US, Carole King, Joni Mitchell, Carly Simon by award-winning journalist Sheila Weller. Ms. Weller will talk about her epic work, and the music of her generation.
Also joining the show will be Kathyrn Wat, Chief Curator of the National Museum of Women in the Arts, who’ll talk about their upcoming exhibit on loan from the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum: Women Who Rock: Vision, Passion, Power. The exhibit highlights the flashpoints, the firsts, the best, the celebrated — and sometimes the lesser-known — women who moved rock and roll music and American culture forward.
Next up is Dr. Jeannie Poole, who will be discussing her documentary PEGGY GILBERT AND HER ALL-GIRL BAND. As a performer on saxophones, clarinet, violin, and vibes, as well as a singer, arranger, and contractor for women musicians, Peggy Gilbert had been a one-woman support network and staunch advocate for women since the 1920s. A professional tenor saxophonist for more than 80 years (she recently passed away at 102), she had been an inspiration for several generations of musicians. Dr. Poole herself is a force to be reckoned with: since 1980, she has organized many conferences and concerts, including International Congresses on Women in Music in New York, Los Angeles and Mexico City. She has produced LP, CD and cassette recordings for Cambria Master Recordings, an independent label in California which specializes in contemporary American music, and serves as an Advisor to the Board of the International Alliance for Women in Music, which she helped to establish. In 1995 she was honored by the National Association of Composers, USA (NACUSA) for her work to promote American composers and music, and served as Chair and Secretary of their National Board of Directors. She currently serves on the Board of the American Society of Music Arrangers and Composers (ASMAC).
Finally, we will talk with music legend Darlene Love, whose number one single “He’s A Rebel,” topped the charts in 1962 and is still beloved today. Ms. Love has played with such greats as Sam Cooke, Dionne Warwick, The Beach Boys, Elvis Presley, Tom Jones and Sonny and Cher; she’s also had a long and rich Broadway career, including a stunning portrayal of herself in the Tony Award-nominated jukebox musical Leader of the Pack. It’s going to be a show you won’t want to miss–join us on the 18th at 3 PM ET and find out for yourself!
