Bonnie Raitt Tops WEMU "Sweet Sixteen" May 21st through the 27th

WEMU got behind the Bonnie Raitt concert to benefit the Ann Arbor Summer festival in a big way.  Her disc, "Slipstream" topped our "Sweet 16".  Ms. Raitt and her band were sweet, sexy, soulful, rocking and totally touching in concert at Hill Auditorium.

Linda Yohn simply cannot remember a day in her life that was not filled with music. Her early life was full of changes as the daughter of a well-respected cancer research scientist who moved his family about, but one thing was constant: the love of music instilled by her mother. So, when it seemed life was too hard to bear, young Linda would listen to her radio, play her guitar, dance her heart out and sing at the top of her lungs. So, it isn’t so strange that “older” Linda still does all those things!
