Women Singers with Disabilities

Friday,  June 17 2:30 pm PST on KPFA

Who is Mary Lambert and what does she have in common with Joni Mitchell, Carly Simon, Rosemary Clooney, Karen Carpenter, and Renata Tabaldi?

All these popular women singers and/or composers have experienced major disabilities in their lives; disabilities which posed barriers to their art, often spurred or directed their musical careers–or even led to a premature death.

Pushing Limits, the creative voice of disability radio, again samples some of the musicians with disabilities who have contributed to our broad and varied cultural landscape.

Produced and Hosted by Eddie Ytuarte.
