From 7-9 PM on Bodega Pop Live (WFMU's Give the Drummer Radio) we’ll celebrate with collaborations, cover versions, deconstructions, deep cuts, hits, homages, mashups, samples, and translations spanning the singer-songwriter’s 50+ year career.
From 9-10 PM we'll focus in on tracks penned and performed by Hardy herself, from her 1962 debut to her final album of the seventies, Musique Saoule (1978).
