Bettye LaVette again claims "Sweet 16" top spot

As we WEMU hosts continue to be grateful to you, our listeners for your generous support, the new CD "Thankful 'N Thoughtful" by former Detroiter Bettye LaVette resonates with us.  Her new disc was the most-played recording on WEMU from November 26th through December 1st.  This week's "Sweet 16" is a fine cross-section of WEMU offerings from the modern-day boogie-woogie and roots music of pianist and singer Julian Fauth to the supremely soulful organ jazz sessions from home town hero, saxophonist Ben Jansson and the first-time appearance of west-coast jazz organ legend Chester "CT" Thompson

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

Bonnie Raitt in performance last Friday at Hill Auditorium.

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.
