When bassist, composer, vocalist and musical visionary Esperanza Spalding's CD, "Radio Music Society" first came out it was an immediate favorite of WEMU listeners and hosts. With her appearance at The Power Center on Thursday, June 21st for the Ann Arbor Summer Festival, the disc once again rose to the top.

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.
