WRTI Celebrates 100 Years of Lady Day on April 7th
Join us on Tuesday, April 7th during jazz hours for our centennial tribute to Billie Holiday, who was born in West Philadelphia, on April 7, 1915, and went on to become a musical and social phenomenon who changed the face of music forever.
As part of Vintage Week on WRTI, we'll present anecdotes about Lady Day and continue to play vintage jazz favorites from our jazz staff in celebration of Jazz Appreciation Month.
WRTI jazz hosts Bob Perkins and Bob Craig have some great Billie Holiday stories to share with you. Check them out below!
