On this week's radio show, my special guest is Grammy Award winning artist, Janis Ian. She was catapulted into the spotlight at age 15, when her soul-wrenching song about an interracial relationship, "Society's Child," became a hit. Many radio stations refused to play it because of its controversial subject matter. Ian's legendary "At Seventeen" earned two Grammy Awards and five nominations. Both songs have been inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame. She was also the first singer to perform on the very first Saturday Night Live. She has experienced discrimination and has always risen above it. Janis will share some of her experiences and go inside the music.

The conversation begins Sunday at 11am EST on 88.7FM, WICR (Indianapolis area) and worldwide at richardbrendan.com.
