Noon Edition

Miss D On Mercury


Dinah Washington was known as the “Queen Of The Blues,” but really, she was so much more than that. Washington was a jazz, pop, AND R&B diva, with an ability to sell a song with cool, confident, hard-edged style that was like no other. This hour on the program, we’ll give a brief exploration of Washington’s thirteen year run on the Mercury Record label, where she crafted some of her biggest hits like “Cold, Cold Heart” and “What A Diff’rence A Day Made.”
