On Point with Aretha
Aaron Cohen was recently on WBUR's On Point discussing Aretha Franklin's Amazing Grace with Alexander Hamilton (the choir director on the album) and Bernard "Pretty" Purdie (drummer extraordinaire). Even if you aren't in a spot where you can listen to the archived audio at the moment (but you should bookmark it, because it's fantastic), the page here is well worth visiting for the photos, embedded videos, excerpts, and all the other bells and whistles.
