Our Aretha

Aretha Franklin on the Beachwood.

1. Playlist: Marfa Public Radio.

Sandwiched by The Staple Singers' "Let's Do It Again" and the Beastie Boys' "Hey Ladies."

2. Songs That Did Or Did Not Change The World.

Wherein our very own Don Jacobson writes of "Respect:"

"Sock it to me, mama. This song changed world because it really launched the women's movement in 1967. Aretha had a lot of credibility because she grew up in the church and paid her dues, and her mastery of the soul medium was truly astounding."

Don, by the way, ranks the song 14th on his list, sandwiched by Jimi Hendrix's "Purple Haze" and Led Zeppelin's "Whole Lotta Love."

3. Cleveland Rocked.

In which rock photographer George Shuba recounts an encounter with The Queen of Soul, among other luminaries:

"She served me coffee backstage. I said, 'I should be getting coffee for you.' She said, 'No, you're the media. You make us famous.'"

4. The Weekend In Chicago Rock.

At the Chicago Theatre, May 2011.
