Crayons To Perfume's Girl of the Week is Koko Taylor along with the girls of 60's Rhythm & Blues!

Crayons to Perfume presents the ladies of 60's rhythm & blues with our girl of the week, KoKo Taylor. Koko rose from being a Tennessee share croppers daughter to being Chicago's Queen of the Blues when she met Willie Dixon who helped her get signed to Chess Records in 1962. Koko released many records in her day, but it was the live performances that were her passion. Right up until her death in 2009 she was still touring and doing about 200 dates a year!

We also hear from the great Barbara Lynn, Little Ester, Sinner Strong, Queen Ester, and Mitty Collier, all on our show #19 which you can hear, here. You can stream via the pop up player and download using the mp3-128k link.

Mitty Collier was a frequent guest on the short lived TV show The Beat!!!. Here she is doing I Had A Talk With My Man.

-I'm really excited about our next show - featuring Girls in the Garage! Tune in Wednesday at 7pm!

Chris Clark's story is definitely one of Opposites Attracting! She was one of the few Caucasian singers for Motown - her voice didn't really fit their imprint, but she had the style and the soul, and Berry Gordy believed in her. Chris leads a gaggle of groovy girls who explore all manner of opposites attracting on tonights Crayons To Perfume!
