MUSICAL GUEST: LINDA CLIFFORD -- Disco's Classsic Queen Returns
The 1970s Disco Music Queen -- LINDA CLIFFORD -- has never stopped performing and continues to keep the music playing with a calendar of shows as four of her biggest selling albums from between 1977-1980 got re-issued this past summer and are already getting her a younger fan base as a new generation discovers the beat heavy grooves of this lady's disco and funky R&B hits from four decades past.
"Midwest BEAT" show host Tom Lounges -- whose early career included spinning disco/dance/R&B tunes in clubs -- often included Clifford's hits in his nightly sets. On this program, Lounges spoke to the Disco Queen about those early days of her career, working with producer/artists Isaac Hayes and Curtis Mayfield, about Cliffords' current live shows (one is coming up at The Arcada Theater in St. Charles, IL), and the recent re-release of her first four hit albums from the glory days. Will more of her vintage titles be released as time goes on? Listen and find out.
