Friday Ride Home Playlist: Vintage Cocktail Hour 6-2-23

Della Reese, 1959
Sony Music Canada
Della Reese, 1959

Wowsa! Look at Della Reese from 1959 in that picture! All summer-y and coy. Long before she was the star of Touched By An Angel, a drama on TV that aired from 1994 to 2003, Della was a pop star with a great singing voice. She was also an actress and an ordained minister and Gospel singer whose career spanned 7 decades. She died in 2017 at the age of 86. Della's version of "Come-On-A-My-House" started off our Friday Ride Home Playlist today. Listen for a Summer-y mix with some Frank, some Doris, and of course, some Ella, below. Enjoy!

Laura is the afternoon host from 3-6 pm weekdays. Email Laura at lshine@lpm.org
