Rock and Roll Hall Fame Inductee, Wanda Jackson, on Tom Needham’s The Sounds of Film

THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 7, 2017
6:00 - 8:00 PM

Rockabilly and country music star, Wanda Jackson, will join Tom Needham this Thursday at 6 P.M. on WUSB’s The Sounds of Film. She will be discussing her new autobiography, Every Night is Saturday Night: A Country Girl’s Journey to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Wanda Jackson is often referred to as “The First Lady of Rock & Roll.” Through the years, she has had over 30 singles on the pop and country charts. While still a teenager, Wanda Jackson had her first hit, “You Can’t Have My Love.” With that success, she hit the road and played with Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis and Carl Perkins. She eventually toured with Elvis, and famously became his girlfriend. While dating Elvis, he advised her to play rock music. She listened to Elvis, and the rest is history.

Wanda is well known for her hits “Let’s Have a Party,” “Right or Wrong,” and “In the Middle of a Heartache.” She was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2009. In recent years, she has been back in the spotlight working with Jack White and Joan Jett. Her new autobiography’s introduction is written by Elvis Costello.

WUSB Sunday Street Series Presents: Joe Crookston

Sunday, September 24th, 5 P.M. at The Long Island Museum

Making his debut appearance in WUSB’s Sunday Street Series is this much-acclaimed songwriter, guitarist, fiddler, pianist and painter whose live shows are rapidly becoming legendary as word travels through the acoustic music world. Joe’s live performances are multi-media celebrations of art and possibility with looped fiddle, video, slide guitar and songs. He’s a bard in the modern world plumbing for lyrical gold like a social archeologist.  His story songs are universal, his slide playing infectious, and on stage he’s funny as hell one moment and transcendent the next.  

Joe is also an accomplished artist and his appearance in The Sunday Street Series will be accompanied by an exhibition of some of his artwork at a 3:30 PM
