March 29th, 2010 in Archive by 20 Comments

We were talking recently with Bonnie Raitt about music and the Hidden World of Girls.  When her list of names grew to seven we asked if we could put it up on the site, and she said sure.

So here are some of the women Bonnie is listening to at the moment.  What girls are on your turntable?
