Bridget B's blog

Believe In Yourself

Lena Horne portrayed Glinda The Good Witch in the The Wiz back in 1978 and her version moved me then and moves me now. Join me Bridget B. on An Evening of Afrotainment tonight from 7-10pmPST and I'll take you on a journey that leads you to believe.

"If you believe
Within your heart you'll know
That no one can change
The path that you must go"

Bridget B. is Back!

Guess who's back for a little air-time injection.  It's me, Bridget B., and Paula was kind enough to make a way for me to have a little air-time on KBOO this Thursday evening from 8pm - 10pm.

Bridget B's Last Show

 Wow, what a ride. This listener touched my heart so I'll start with his edited words:

A Tribute to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

To Haiti & Teddy With Love

Bridget B. here and tonight's show will be in dedication to our brothers and sisters in Haiti and to the late great Teddy Pendergrass.  Paula will be joining me around the 8pm hour to co-host the show.  We plan to bring you music from the African Diaspora by Black Artists worldwide with special attention to the sounds of music that would come out of Haiti.  We'll also fill you in on the different ways you can help support the people of Haiti.

December 5 - Playlist Spotlight

Her name is Soha, a French contemporary R&B singer who signed with Virgin Music back in 2007 and quickly released her debut album D'Ici et d'Ailleurs with a re-release in 2008.  She hails from Marseille and has Jazz, Blues, Soul, Jamaican Reggae and Latin influences sprinkled throughout her repretoire of music.  I discovered her music during my recent trip to Paris and of these three songs that I played:

Bridget B's Back In Stride Again

Wow, seems like I've been away for ages.  I know I haven't posted a blog entry in at least a century or truth be told months.  Got a little busy with this thing called work.  Who invented it anyway?

Last week, I returned from nearly a full month of traveling and of course I brought back some fantastic music to share with all of you.  My recent jaunts included New York, Dallas, Orlando, DC and oui, oui, Paris, France.  So what does that tell you?  The first hour of my show is always international in scope so expect nothing less.  Not only will I be speaking French to get you buttered up, but the programming that I'm doing for this Saturday will not only move you, it will enter your being and transport you to another place.

Just Chill

Bridget B. here, and several people have discovered and commented on how I spend a little time preparing for my chance to host An Evening of Afrotainment.  Okay, more than a little time. Yes!

Girl Can Sing


Bridget B. here and yes, she can sing.  Here name is Emily Braden and don't you forget it.  Man can this girl belt out a tune and deliver a speedy "Them There Eyes" wow, still can't figure out when she takes a breath on that track. 

Farnell Newton posted information about this young lady on his Facebook page and I quickly listened to her songs as found on her myspace page ~ Emily Braden - gotta love the internet for easy access to artists' music.  After listening to her and confused as to where she was getting all this soul from I decided to ask for an interview and man is she very well rounded when it comes to Jazz and music in general.
