Not a surprise, given her age and leukemia, but still a loss.

Sad indeed. And odd that it comes the day after Johnny Otis, who apparently "discovered" her.

A sad day indeed. I gave "I'd Rather Go Blind" and "Plum Nuts" spins in tribute. . .

My next radio show will be next Wednesday ... which would've been Etta's 74th birthday.

Give her a good send-off. I'm not nearly as fond of "At Last" as the rest of the planet seems to be, but I think "I'd Rather Go Blind" is amazing.

Oh yeah, I won't be wasting time with "At Last." (Then again, I can't say I'm sure what I'll play. Will have to dig into the station's library.)

You could tease "At Last" for listener comfort to a crossfade into "Blind" or "Something's Got Ahold".
