Today it's the remarkable Georgia Girls on Crayons to Perfume! featuring Gladys Knight and the Pips, Sandy Gaye, Nancy Broom, the Ravenettes and many may more. Liz Lands was Georgia's Motown Girl in the 60's - under appreciated, she had a long road to the stardom she never really attained - a unique voice most suitable for the gospel and praise music she grew up singing, Liz turned to secular music as a way to become independent. There is a great interview with Liz below, make sure you check it out. She is a great character and had a very interesting life, including a stint as a Freedom singer for Martin Luther King. Tune in to Crayons to Perfume! today at 7pm for Georgia Girls, and then stay tuned for the Fringe Factory at 8.
