Hi Sheila. I'm assuming this interviewed isn't live but please know that I am truly amazed at the confluence of events here. Thank you for responding last week. The late "Bishop" O'Brien is my dad. Rest In peace (died 2004). I was adopted so I only found out after his death that he is my father. I have had the pleasure of meeting Abagail's ex, Danny "Kootch" and many other friends and musicians that my dad played with. Bless your heart for this interview. You're the best...

My father was the drug-addled drummer that caused the demise of Jo Mama. Sad that he never got control of his addiction until toward the end of his life. He was an extraordinary multi-instrumentalist. Addiction is a disease and heroin is a killer. RIP "Bishop"

I'm going down, but will surely listen to the rest of the interview tomorrow, Sheila. Until next week everyone.

Bishop was loved by many, but was a problem for many also. Kootch was very gracious when I met him. "Bishop taught me everything. He was the smartest guy I ever knew." We don't have the luxury of picking our parents.

@dreamyandseedy glad it was a turning point

What a fabulous interview Sheila. Johnny Ander was a revelation.... And becoming a landscape designer is a brilliant way to age gracefully out of the record business.

this “southern man” was sampled by Cool Breeze “watch out for the hook” with goodie mob/outkast

This version of Sothern Man always killed me. Now I have a deeper insight to one of the backup singers! Music is, indeed, the best.

This version of Southern Man is just incredible. Thank you Sheila for this fabulous and thanks so much Abigail if you are on the comments board...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:46pm Gurldoggie:

This was among the best music interviews I've heard in many many years. You two had a such a lovely rapport, and she shared such wild and intimate stories! And connected it all back to decades of fantastic music. I'm gonna say this is destined to become a classic radio moment.
Avatar 5:47pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

'Riveting' as said above is a good word.
What a massive shame this has been.
Thank You SheilaB & Ms. Haness !
See how everyone is thinking 'Book' ! It was that consequential. Or Movie - if it were possible to do it justice...

Fantastic interview. It's like a crash course in the secret history of rock-and-roll.
I just saw Merry Clayton sing Southern Man on the old PBS show Soul, which is streaming now on Amazon. Absolutely recommended.

Can't wait to listen to this show in the archives, thanks Sheila B and Abigail Haness! I don't have to wait to listen to the stupendous Pussycats "Dressed in Black" as I own the very great "One Kiss Can Lead to Another" hatbox comp, given to me by The Boy Dressed in Black (I just learned that the song was released on a special day as well.) So thank you Sheila B for your notes on that project!

I was still up last night listening to part of Abbie From Mars' show last night and I kind of zonked out for a while. Have a good week, Sheila.
  5:52pm Kpx:

Riveting interview, with the exception of time's when she would suddenly drop her voice very low making it very difficult to understand what she was saying. Otherwise great.
  5:52pm calf:

What a great interview. She had quite an exciting life.

Primo interview! Revelatory! There are certainly at least a few more “Gayles” out there and I’m sure Sheila B will be the one to find and interview them!

thank you for sharing your chat with Abigail I have thoroughly enjoyed listening to you both. she is such an interesting colourful vibrant person - i have known about of the Pussycats for many years, but not much about them, so because of your own amazing knowledge of music, this was a brilliant two way interview - which I have learnt from - so this just opened up the history even more for me ps. that sudden cutting off at the end of a recording is something I think was also done with the Shangrilla's - so may be a connection there to check out?. regards Martin @ CircularsounD
