  1. Listening now… fascinating interview. You all will love it. Bette talks Laura Nyro in it and explains her connection to her.

  2. I think when Bette refers to Bills sounding similar to Handos hideaway, she may be confused with J lo’s “Dance the night away”
    Lets dance – till we – go crazy (da da da…..)

    My opinion this sounds like Nados hodeaway – whatever the song is called LOL 😉

  3. Wow! What a wonderful opportunity to hang out with Bette and share her music with her. Just as I would always have loved to do. Gives real insight into how she creates her own work. Some of the thought process and the inspiration that gives her ability to have such amazingly emotional impact on us. I love to hear her articulate herself about what moves her.

  4. Don. Thank you for this NPR. I have missed Bette. It was wonderful to hear her voice. My favorite is listening to Bette in conversation. Also thank you for The Cleveland Rock Hall Photos. I am in Cleveland and am so proud she was present tonite. A Real A-List. I can’t wait to hear what she said in her Laura Nyro presentation. She is looking very Beautiful. Thank you again Mr.D for this time you give us. All this time that you give for Bette.
