It's never not a good time to enjoy a Bettye LaVette performance, but between her 75th birthday (celebrated on January 29) and a chance at a Grammy win in March, she gets our vote for a "Throwback Thursday" FUV Live pick today.

Back in April of 2018, Bettye and her band stopped by Studio A to perform songs from her album of Bob Dylan tunes, Things Have Changed, and the masterful song interpreter was in fine form in conversation too. We'll share those tunes with you on FUV today, and you can hear the full session anytime in the FUV Live Vault.

For some bonus Bettye, you can also give a listen to our phone chat from April of last year, just before the release of her latest album, Blackbirds.
