Long before hits, a major label move, and Grammys made her more of a household name than her Broadway-musical-star father, John Raitt, my introduction to Bonnie brought about an unexpected response!
Mimeographs! That takes me back. I'm sure any reader of a certain age could smell this post!
Hi Brad: The other night during a Mets game, announcer Gary Cohen made a reference to the smell of mimeograph paper. My nostrils caught the whiff of memory: oh, that smell. Two facts and a deadline equalling a trend, as I was taught as a young reporter, I guess we can say that mimeograph is trending!
Boy, Bonnie Raitt can play a slide well! Never really listened to her before. *Opens Spotify...
PS: The Mimeograph machine was the introduction to my decades long career in the printing trade.
