Christine Ohlman (The Beehive Queen) in my radio show Purple Haze
On August 28 on the radio show Purple Haze an interview with Christine Ohlman aka the Beehive Queen from the USA. Also songs from her sixth CD “The Deep End” feat. Dion DiMucci, Levon Helm, Ian Hunter and more well known musicians. This CD was honored on five US Top Ten lists. Furthermore music from artists who influenced her.
Christine Ohlman, the queen of blue-eyed rock n’ soul, who grew up loving equally the sweetness of a Memphis horn line and the raunch of an electric guitar riff, whether played by Muddy Waters, Keith Richards, or Pop Staples, teased her blonde hair into a beehive in honor of Ronnie Spector and never looked back, picking up a guitar and forging a career as a songwriter in the process. She’s the current, long-time vocalist with the Saturday Night Live Band, whose latest CD ‘The Deep End’ was honored on five national Top Ten lists!
Christine supports the New Orleans Musicans’ Clinic and contributed on the CD: Get You A Healin’ (http://www.amazon.com/Get-Healin-Special-Anniversary-Re-Release/dp/B003Y1YWTW).
The revenues of the CD go to the musicians of New Orleans who have a hard time after the storm “Katrina”
