Years after her death in New York City, Billie Holiday's voice continues to captivate listeners. The mystique of the "Lady with the Gardenia" is explored by Dizzy Gillespie and Lena Horne in San Francisco, Studs Terkel in Chicago, and Frank Schiffman at Harlem's Apollo Theater. Unexpurgated passages from her autobiography, Lady sings the blues (Doubleday), are read by Lillian McKinney, and several of Miss Holiday's records including the banned "Gloomy Sunday," are featured. Narrators include Lloyd Edwards, Bill Heyward, Herb Kennedy and Dan Sorkin. Produced by KPFA volunteers Gene and Fabs De Alessi. Part one.
