No matter where our lives were at just nine months ago, most of us are now longing for the pre-pandemic days to some degree. Jump into this week's jukebox of an episode for a trip back in time.
This week, Deanna profiles seven famous singers who all have something to do with January 10 and 24. Five of them share the palindrome birthday with our host, who happened to celebrate her 24th with a lovely party just in time before the virus hit. The other two featured artists hit their stride and released masterpiece albums at the ripe old age of 24. Having been inspired by the aforementioned festivities, this episode was also recorded before the advent of the pandemic.
