Episode 17: #Bond_age_Radio II – The Ladies Who Should Have Done Bond
In this sequel to the original #Bond_age_Radio episode, James (@007hertzrumble) spins tracks because music heals and we all need to heal sometimes. This episode of #Bond_age_ Radio highlights female recording artists that could have/should have/would have done a great James Bond theme, but never had the opportunity. I take listener requests, ignore them when they aren’t to my liking and ponder hypotheticals like “one-off-Bond” actor/director scenarios. James Bond music is not just about Shirley Bassey and it never has been.
Correction: Songstress was Anita Baker’s second album. I erred during the talky bits when I said it was her debut.
