Delilah: Radio Host Talks About Why Her Show Is so Successful

I’ve never heard of this woman before. She and I appear to be on the same wavelength.

If only that were more than a pun!

Update, 2014-06-13:

A follower has advised that the link seems to point to an interview with Michelle Kwan.

The restrictions on videos on web pages here at the library are such I normally ignore them, and count on people just reading the text.  For the video interview with Delilah one wants to click on this image:

One gets the impression from Matt Bai’s article that closed-mindedness is something new.

I think first of a quotation from Jeff Snyder, from 1993:

Laura Nyro

Memorial Day 2018

Yesterday at Burger King I heard a song I’d never heard before, that impressed me enough to do significant research.  I don’t know who did the cover.  From the music and the lyrics, I supposed the creator to be Elton John.  The music really moved me, but I found the lyrics to be dark.

It proved to be “Stoney End,” created by Laura Nyro.

I knew nothing about her.

Turns out she created a ton of hits, and was vastly influential.

She eschewed the celebrity lifestyle, which I think William Tell would like to do also.
