About once a month or so I have a long chat on RNZ about a particular musical artist or genre or a theme – for their regular Tuesday music features. This week I chose to talk about Bonnie Raitt. I’ve been a fan for a while. And this feature was all about revisiting the golden years and talking through her development as a player of sessions as well as her own brilliant work – often covering tunes, but sometimes as the songwriter too. We played a bunch of her tunes and I talked through some of the high points of her career (and mentioned some of the lows as well). I loved this feature – a great chance to shine the light on her very best work. Which is as good as anyone’s – I firmly believe that.

I also made a Spotify playlist of all the songs. So you can listen to that here too.
