What a fun time we had in studio this morning with the great Darlene Love! She hung out with us for a whole hour just reminiscing with Dan and Mr. G, talked about being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and also spoke about some great concerts she has coming up this month.
Darlene also brought her sister Edna Wright with her in studio! Edna is the lead singer of [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Honey Cone[/lastfm]! And even better than that? Dan sang an original song he just made up on the air that you HAVE to hear!
Here are some important events coming up this month with Darlene:
- She will be headlining Carnegie Hall’s Christmas show TOMORROW, December 2nd to celebrate her 50th anniversary in show biz.
