PRA Archive #: 

This is another program that Carlos Hagen has dedicated to eclecticism in music and song to show that artistry, virtuosity, honesty, and soul can be found in practically every style or genre of musical expression. To this purpose he has divided the program into five segments dedicated to five great American ladies of the song; each one a great lady of her own art and style of singing, all of them very different. The five women are Leontyne Price, Janis Joplin, Tammy Wynette, Judy Garland, and Billie Holiday. Episode 3 in the Spectrum series.
