Tag: Presenting the Fabulous Ronettes Featuring Veronica
Ronnie Spector died at age 78 on Jan. 12. Jim and Patrick pay tribute to this iconic singer. Plus we play a clip from a 2018 episode in which listener Paul Trap chose the Ronettes’ “Be My Baby” as a perfect pop song.
Legendary session drummer Hal Blaine died on March 11, 2019, at age 90. Dick Dale, King of the Surf Guitar, died on March 16 at age 81. We pay tribute to these important figures in pop music. (Recorded on the back deck, with guest Jasper Colt.)
Listeners Paul Trap and Nick Scalera join us in the basement to make their Perfect Pop picks. Both are classic R&B songs. Paul goes with the Ronettes, Nick with Smokey Robinson & the Miracles.
