The Strombo Show runs the gamut this Sunday night, keeping the spirit of radio alive by delivering the best records in the best order. It’s a show for music lovers by music lovers, ranging over three hours of commercial-free music to honour both old and new.

George Stroumboulopoulos will be joined by the Grammy Award-winning, blues-rock guitarist Bonnie Raitt for an intimate conversation. Bonnie Raitt talks about the US Election, Saturday Night Live and that unreleased Prince album.

“Well, that highway moon is calling like some lover from some other land.
Before the dust can settle, I’ll kick it up and tear it down again.”
— Bonnie Raitt, “Gypsy in Me”

Raitt is known for her lifelong commitment to the preservation of musical tradition and social activism. She dropped out of Radcliffe in the early ’70s to tour clubs with the likes of Howlin’ Wolf, Sippie Wallace and Mississippi Fred McDowell, learning the trade of late nights. Along the way, she earned herself a reputation as one of the greatest living blues guitarists. Raitt has been a voice for many grassroots and anti-nuclear movements while achieving commercial success with classic albums that include Nick of Time and Luck of the Draw. Her latest studio album, Dig in Deep, reflects on a period of family loss and the joy that she found on the return to the road.

She joins George to dig through her five-decade-spanning career, from performing for Skip James before his death to the truth behind the album that she recorded with Prince.

Playlist:

Bonnie Raitt, “Need You Tonight”
Bonnie Raitt, “The Comin’ Round Is Goin’ Through”
Bob Dylan, “Masters Of War”
Sippie Wallace, “Have You Ever Been Down”
Bonnie Raitt, “The Ones We Couldn’t Be”

For further musical exploration with George Stroumboulopoulos, tune in to The Strombo Show every Sunday night on CBC Radio 2 or CBC Music from 8 to 11 p.m. for three hours of uninterrupted music for music lovers.
