This afternoon on the show: Melissa Etheridge. Hear it online + see tasty live videos!

She plays the Blaisdell Concert Hall July 23 and the MACC in Kahului, Maui July 24. On-sale now.

At my page on the HPR site, you can also see four videos, including a breathtaking performance of Like The Way I Do that’s over ten minutes and one of the best-captured live versions of that song… Also check out Melissa paying tribute to Janis Joplin solo acoustic, showcasing her skills in jaw-dropping fashion… See her live in action from just days ago ‘down under’ on her current tour, playing an acoustic version of Falling Up, a song from Fourth Street Feeling, her new album due in September.

I hope you dig this very special conversation with one of my favorite artists!
