Spotlight On: Bonnie Raitt
SHEROES Radio Episode 76

on May 28, 2022 No comments

Bonnie had the pleasure of speaking with Sheroes Radio host Carmel Holt while on the road. Carmel is a veteran radio personality and producer who created SHEROES Radio to “TURN UP THE VOLUME of womxn’s voices on the airwaves, because there is still a huge gender disparity in the music as well as the folx programming and presenting radio playlists.” – from BRHQ

ABOUT THIS WEEK’S SHERO IN THE SPOTLIGHT:

Even though our guest this week has earned ten GRAMMY Awards and over twenty nominations, is in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, and is known as one of the greatest guitarists of all time, you’ll hear the legendary Bonnie Raitt refer to herself as an activist first, which makes sense, as she has been devoted to both music and activism her entire life, her fifty year career inseparably connected to her social activism for the environment, No Nukes, social justice and human rights, as well as music education and rights for artists and creators, all while putting out one fantastic album after another, collaborating with musicians too long to list here, touring, and since 2012 running her own independent label, Redwing Records.

At 72, Bonnie is showing no signs of slowing down. We’re not even halfway through 2022 and has been honored with the Lifetime Achievement Award at the GRAMMYS, the Icon Award at the Billboard Women in Music Awards, and her tenth album Nick of Time was inducted into the Library of Congress’s National Recording Registry, all while she was getting ready to release her 21st album, Just Like That… and finally head back out on tour after the forced pause brought on by the pandemic.

The unstoppable and inspiring Bonnie Raitt is this week’s SHERO in the Spotlight.
