Every time a tear forms for Ronnie, it evaporates into the biggest glittering stars in my eyes, like the way she brought the stars down from the heavens into our hearts, and then I'm so grateful for her, and I just smile and smile.
  3:06pm Jett:

Still very sad of the loss of Ronnie Spector one of the true Giants of Rock n Roll. Also the loss of another great girl group artist, Rosa Lee Hawkins on the same date. 😢❤️ Hope you are well. @DjSheilaB ❤️

That SOUND that only Ronnie Spector can make

I had always hoped we’d have her as a guest on here.

@Joyvelyn you ate among fellow music lovers
  3:13pm Robm:

I meant joycelyn my apologies

So many memories of Ronnie in her performances with Joey at the Continental & Coney Island High. As Joey would say the baddest girl in rock n roll

Simply one of the most perfect records ever made
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:19pm mariano:

This always makes me think of the Itchy & Scratchy episode "Why Do Fools Fall in Lava?"

Hi SheilaB, everyone. I knew you'd have the tribute to Ronnie more than covered, SheilaB!
  3:19pm listener Paul:

This songs always give me chills especially the flip into the head voice. Do you think when they finished recording this they knew they had recorded a perfect song? That changing one tiny element would diminish it?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:20pm Passaic River Blues:

@Jocelyn: my God. Words are really failing me, but how unutterably beautiful.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:21pm Rob Kopp:

I had forgotten how good this song is

I love this song freaking so much. Great tribute Sheila!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:32pm Nate K.:

"Don't Worry Baby" is such a perfect song for her.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:32pm Gurldoggie:

There's a legend that Beatles John & George went on double dates with Ronnie and Estelle when the Ronettes were touring in England, and that Phil put a stop to it. Interesting to think how that could have turned out...
  3:33pm Quinn02:

I am really enjoying this show! Thank you! Ronnie Spector is new to me but I want to check out more for work
  3:33pm Chris M:

I agree Michele! I love this version, great cover of a great song!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:33pm Michele with One "L":

She's giving such good face in that first pic you posted. Attitude + vulnerability ❤️
  3:35pm east hollywood:

Thanks for this great retrospective. I just looked down and observed that I’m wearing my sophisticated boom boom T-shirt today— which is frankly a little more fanboy than I intend to be. I got to be careful not to match my WFMU T-shirts to the days the shows are on.

Lovely tribute from Susanna Hoffs
The enchanting Ronnie Spector. She was a hero & an inspiration. I learned so much singing along to her records. Her vibrato thrilled, her tone cut like a diamond & chimed like a bell. She imbued each & every syllable with emotion, whether it be yearning or sorrow or joy

I try catching the show every week but am so glad in particular I caught this one. I didn't know much about Ronnie Spector but learned so much just in this one show, while getting to enjoy so many tunes as well, of course!

It was really touching to see the impact she's had on music and on you, @djsheilab. Thanks for sharing everything you did. The show was simply beautiful. What a great tribute. Not much else to say. So well done and such a great example of freeform at its best.

I hope you have a chance to properly grieve this loss, and I'm sorry, Sheila. Thanks for celebrating her life.

Thank you so much.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:56pm Rob Kopp:

I want to thank you for the terrific tribute that I already expected. Ronnie did a great Stones cover that must be the motto for this show: I'd much rather be with the girls

Thank you for this show today.

Thank you Sheila. RIP Ronnie. What a great show.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:56pm Listener John from NJ:

There are a lot of videos on youtube thqt feature Ronnie Spector later in her career: singing at club Coney Island High with Joey Ramone, or singing "You can't put your arms around a memory" with her own band in 2018. A great pleasure to watch . . . Whoops! Sorry! You guys already know all this stuff. But maybe there's 1 person out there who doesn't? and who would like to? :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:56pm Handy Haversack:

Thanks so much for this wonderful tribute and show, Sheila! We're grinning through our tears over here.

Be well, all.
