Christine Tobin & Betty Carter.

A little while ago I made a diary entry noting that the jazz singer Christine Tobin was BBC Radio 3’s Jazz Library talking about Betty Carter’s recording career.


Tonight she’s Ian McMillan’s guest on Radio 3’s The Verb, the weekly cabaret of language. On the programme, which is being broadcast from the Radio Theatre in Broadcasting House, Christine will paying tribute to Carter who died of pancreatic cancer a little over a decade ago.

Correction 21/02/2009.

This was a repeat of a programme first broadcast on the 26/09/2008, the tenth anniversary to the day of Betty Carter’s death. If you, like I, missed it first time around, it is still available on the “listen again” player for another six days.
