Just a few days to go… 

Finally! We’re getting read to do the ‘Spring Ahead’ thing with our clocks this weekend, then it’s on to counting down the final few days before the official arrival of Spring.

Mother Nature’s late winter warmth can be fickle (right?) so while she takes her time to figure it all out, let’s enjoy two hours with a legendary Brazilain voice as we take yet another step closer to the sunshine season. 

March 17th marks another birthday for Elis Regina, but even those who only casually observed this singer’s meteoric career knew that fate would hold to a much shorter calendar.

Elis Regina died at age 36 of a drug overdose on January 19th, 1982. It put a coda on a life that was filled with riotous emotion and more than enough music to sustain us after she had gone.

Musically, singer Elis Regina carried her talent like an open book: propelling great emotion into her music, almost as if every song was part of her own life story. You can learn more about Elis Regina here.

Today, Elis is still revered as Brazil’s greatest performer. I hope you’ll enjoy this show!

Happy Listening,
Scott Adams
