Interviews with the daughters of Ray Charles, Sam Cooke and Diana Ross were featured on the Jan. 23 edition of Greasy Tracks, a special edition of the program which included music by each of them as well as their parents. Go here for Hour 1, Hour 2.
Coincidentally, the program aired a day after the 85th anniversary of the birth of Sam Cooke, widely recognized as one of the greatest soul singers of all time.
Robyn LaJoya Charles, Carla Cooke and Rhonda Ross will be making their first-ever appearance together on Feb. 19 at the Katherine Hepburn Cultural Arts Center in Old Saybrook in what is billed as the “Daughters of Rhythm and Blues Tour.” They appear at The River Club Music Hall in Scituate, Mass., the following evening. The trio returns to the area on July 14 when they play Infinity Hall in Hartford.
Now in its 22nd year, Greasy Tracks is the longest-running soul and blues radio program in Connecticut.
