On her birthday in 1982, Lucinda Williams visited KTRU studios for an interview with David John Scribner on his “Chicken Skin Music” radio show. In this one-on-one, she discusses how she got started, musical influences, early life, living in Houston, her albums Ramblin’ and Happy Woman Blues, working with the Hemmer Ridge Mountain Boys, and the worst music venue.
For copyright reasons, we have cut out her live performances.
