Rickey Vincent hosts the funk world’s most in-depth tribute of 70’s funk vixen Betty Davis!

Featuring her first interview in decades, and band members — including Gregg Errico of Sly and the Family Stone — that played with her during the wild years of her act.

Betty Davis, the woman that turned Miles Davis onto Jimi Hendrix, and changed the world of music, has recorded at least 4 albums of her own outrageous, ferocious, hard core funk-rock. Two of these albums have been recently reissued in the US. We will be blasting all of them on Friday night!
