Popular Music: The Podcast

Feb 17, 2020

You can’t talk about rock ‘n’ roll without the inventor of Rock ‘n’ Roll herself, Sister Rosetta Tharpe. Omar and Analise spare no ounce of love and respect to talk about the importance of the legendary guitarist and gospel artist whose influence has stretched to nearly EVERY modern artist from Little Richard (her young Padawan) to Brittany Howard.
