Music Series No. 2: Lady Killers Who Kill Me 1920-1945ish Mamie Smith, Ma Rainey, Bessie Smith, Sister Rosetta Tharpe, Ida Cox, and more
We are back with the second episode of the music series!! Teleporting back to the 1920’s, we talk about the women of blues. These brave women freed our souls for rock and roll, and Elvis took all the credit. What a jackass, amirite. We talk about Mamie Smith, Ma Rainey, Bessie Smith, Ida Cox, Alberta Hunter, Billie Holiday (just because duh), Sister Rosetta Tharpe, Memphis Minnie, Anita O’Day, Big Mama Thornton, and a little bit of Ella Fitzgerald and Sarah Vaughan just because I couldn’t help myself.

Stay tuned for MANY MORE EPISODES of the music series. We have SO MANY PLANNED. A whole episode dedicated to Dolly Parton, a whole episode dedicated to Tegan and Sara. There will be a Country Queers episode guaranteed. The next episode is going to cover more lady killers who kill me, but from the 1945-1960 time frame.
