During the week of October 19th, 2020, WHRB was lucky enough to air a recent interview with Ruth Pointer of the three-time Grammy-winning group, the Pointer Sisters. Having recently written a book about her life as a Pointer Sister (rightfully titled Still So Excited! My Life as a Pointer Sister), Ruth shared with listeners the details of her musical journey and ways that she became the artist she is today. Covering topics varying from music theory to the current music industry to their favorite types of music, listen to the above interview as Ruth Pointer and Brayden Orpello-McCoy discuss all things Pointer. And who knows! There may also be a musical treat as well.
