When Sharon Jones named her new album I Learned The Hard Way, she wasn't kidding. It took her forty years to make it as a singer, after stints as a corrections officer and an armored car guard. However, she's now the first lady of the neo-soul funk revival, and she made the trip from House of Soul Studios in Brooklyn to FUV with all her Dap-Kings to share some new live tunes.

[Recorded: 4/5/10]
