Lost 45’s Spoiler: Aretha Franklin Tribute Show
The world is still grieving the loss of 'The Queen Of Soul'. Barry Scott will feature a terrific 2017 interview with Aretha Franklin and many examples from her priceless music catalog.
Many celebrities and music stars have taken to social media to express their sorrow and condolences to Aretha's family. My favorite statement thus far is from Elton John, whose 'Border Song' she covered in 1972.
The loss of
@ArethaFranklin is a blow for everybody who loves real music: Music from the heart, the soul and the Church. Her voice was unique, her piano playing underrated – she was one of my favourite pianists. - @eltonofficial via Twitter
Elton has admitted on several occasions that he thinks her rendition of 'Border Song' is far superior to his own.
Barry will play her version of 'Border Song' and so many other great songs from her extensive library, starting Sunday night at 9pm only on 102-1 and 105-3 The Shark.
