Discussion of Rosetta Reitz, feminist and Jazz historian with music-links

 The women we heard on the show and linked below were all but lost until Rosetta Reitz, a feminist and jazz historian, started the record-label Rosetta Records. Brad talks about how the self-image of Blues as a male-dominated genre was shook up in 1979 when Rosetta re-released many of these women for the first time after having been lost in record collections and the public domain. Rosetta died in 2008. However, an unfortunate accident caused us to lose Brad's connection in the last minute of the interview.
