March 20, 2010 marked what would have been Sister Rosetta Tharpe's 95th birthday. In honor of this occasion, our friends on the other side of the pond at BBC Radio 2 have reposted a 60 minute radio broadcast that originally aired last March. To listen to the broadcast, hosted by Ruby Turner, you can click the link below. Please listen ASAP, as it will be taken down on March 30, 2010.

If you've stumbled upon this post after March 30 or if you want to find out more about Sister Rosetta Tharpe, I highly recommend that you read "Shout, Sister, Shout!: The Untold Story of Rock-and-Roll Trailblazer Sister Rosetta Tharpe" by Gayle F. Ward. Check Amazon.com, your local bookstore or even your local library for a copy.
