Make up for lost time. RIP Ronnie.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 4:10pm Handy Haversack:

Glad to be here for this. There have been a lot of tributes on WFMU these past couple of years (too many, of course, we have lost too many). And others of course have spanned multiple shows. But I don't remember one where the loss was so leavened with joy and gratitude for the art and the artist and the gift of sharing a world with them as these amazing shows for Ronnie.

Just stunned with admiration. Thanks so much, Todd. And Sheila and everyone and all.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 4:11pm Miss G:

Thanks for listening Matt!
Avatar 4:16pm Joe B:

@handy - one reason I think is not only is it an iconic talent but that said icon was somewhat in our orbit. she showed up at the record fair, was on Gaylord's show a couple times, Todd's show, called in to Spazz and my shows, performed at a few Ponderosa Stomp FMU broadcasts. not to mention Dennis D and Ira K having played with her, and other members of the extended FMU friends and family playing with her for years etc.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 4:16pm DonJuanTijuana:

Thank you TOPT for sharing these great Ronnie stories & of course the tunes !
Avatar 🎸 4:17pm TonyR:

Saw her live in 1997 in Hoboken. Killer performer.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 4:18pm Handy Haversack:

Yeah, Joe -- the sense of closeness and real intimacy is very clear and makes it all the more special that a window to it can be opened through these shows. It's a gift. And it comes over the radio waves for free!
Avatar 4:19pm Joe B:

someone recently posted an acetate of a demo of the ronettes doing home of the brave. the quality is not great but it is great to hear Ronnie singing it in '64

I urge y’all to find & read Josh Alan Friedman’s TELL THE TRUTH UNTIL THEY BLEED—the piece on Ronnie is indelible, and contains essential pieces on Jerry Leiber, Doc Pomus & a cavalcade (yup) of others.

I bet “the best part of breaking up when we’re making up”
lead some people to have some desperate one-sided delusions and caused a lot of bad relationship troubles with toxic behavior!

Such a wonderful show today, Todd. My parents (who have both passed on) used to go to the Peppermint Lounge in the Sixties and they loved rock 'n' roll -- especially the girl groups. Your show brings up fond memories of them for me.

Ronnie has that old school NYC vibe that’s slowly disappearing, I love her, her spirit and her voice. She sounds like the women I used to ride with on the A/C into Manhattan. She’s the coolest!!

This was in the Washington Post obit, loved so much: “We weren’t afraid to be hot. That was our gimmick,” Spector said in her memoir. “When we saw The Shirelles walk on stage with their wide party dresses, we went in the opposite direction and squeezed our bodies into the tightest skirts we could find. Then we’d get out on stage and hike them up to show our legs even more.”
