Rita Houston Interview: At Home with Ani Di Franco 2004
Rita Houston, Nationally recognized tastemaker and long-time Program Director of New York’s WFUV, has sadly passed on from this world. In honor of her joy and curiosity, we offer an old interview between Rita and Ani, friends and respected colleagues. This informal chat was recorded in 2004 inside Ani DiFranco’s recording studio in Buffalo, NY. Rita Houston leads Ani to discuss touring, politics, community, and Ani’s then recently released album Educated Guess. Also included are previously unreleased live recordings of "Bliss Like This," and the title track "Educated Guess.” Kick off your shoes, make yourself comfortable, and spend a little time At Home With Ani DiFranco. This conversation will air Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at 12pm and 5pm CDT.
