WOO! The ‘Ladies Of The 80’s’ weekend has been such a joy on 106.7 WTLC, reminding me of the greatness of so many artists!

We just played Patrice Rushen’s ‘Haven’t You Heard’ and I was in the studio, clapping and stomping along. Whatta great groove! Man, look at that picture…she KNOWS this is the jam. Everyone remembers ‘Forget-Me-Nots’ (no pun intended…heh), but Patrice Rushen has LOTSA grand grooves worth investigating.

Kirk Franklin interpolated ‘Haven’t You Heard’ to great effect for his hit, ‘Looking For You’.

Patrice Rushen was also the inspiration for Prince to write ‘I Feel For You’. Yup! (I’m sure Chaka Khan was singing to someone else, but that is who the song was written for!)

Patrice Rushen is still doing her thing, performing and touring. I found this excellent clip of her performing ‘Haven’t You Heard’ in London last year. Check it out below…

GO LADIES! Keep jamming with 106.7 WTLC…and get ready for the Women’s Empowerment Series!
