Thursday 12/10/2020 2pm ET: Feature Artist – Dionne Warwick


Marie Dionne Warwick (born December 12, 1940) is an American singer, actress, television host, and former Goodwill Ambassador for the Food and Agriculture Organization.

Warwick ranks among the 40 biggest hit makers between 1955 and 1999, based on her chart history on Billboard’s Hot 100 pop singles chart. She is one of the most-charted female vocalists of all time, with 56 of her singles making the Hot 100 between 1962 and 1998 (12 of them Top Ten), and 80 singles in total – either solo or collaboratively – making the Hot 100, R&B and/or adult contemporary charts.

In 2020, she appeared as the Mouse on season 3 of The Masked Singer. Despite being eliminated in the second round, Warwick came back during the first part of the season three finale to sing “What the World Needs Now is Love” with the finalists Night Angel, Frog and Turtle as a tribute to the healthcare workers working on the front lines during the coronavirus pandemic. This performance was created after the season wrapped production in March. Warwick made a guest appearance during Gladys Knight’s and Patti Labelle’s Verzuz battle. Together they performed Warick’s song, That’s What Friends Are For. They closed with their collaborative song Superwoman (Karyn White song).

Monday 10pm: LP Lounge with Willie B

Tonight, Monday, at 10pm on the LP Lounge we bring needle drops, on 3 great women of music. Dottie West, Dionne Warwick and Judy Collins.  We’ve taken the original surround sound vinyl pressings (CD-4 they used to call it) – run them through a decoder (more properly, a demodulator) to extract the 4 discrete channels of sound – then (since we can’t play discrete 4 channel sound) we have encoded all three to be compatible with most home theater systems (QS, RM, Dolby pro logic) – are playing them in surround sound for you – AND – you don’t even need 4 ears (though it wouldn’t hurt, and it would be easier to keep your glasses from sliding off)!
