Bettye’s gift is being able to take a song, whether well known or obscure, from any genre and make it completely her own. She began performing and recording during the birth of soul music in the 60s and is still touring today. Also with us is NYC-based composer and musician Vilray, who deftly performs Jazz and Country style swing music as was popular in the 1930s, 40's and 50's. All of this, plus a conversation with Rose Tourje, founder of ANEW, a nonprofit organization that keeps perfectly good office furniture, supplies, equipment and more from needlessly being thrown into the landfill by getting it sent to schools and organizations in poorer areas who reuse them.
