  1. Fresh Air remembers bluegrass singer Hazel Dickens, who died on Friday, with excerpts from a 1987 interview: "There did seem to be a large space there that women like me and other women that were coming along could fill. And that was to give other women that didn’t want to sing the old traditional songs — to give them something that they could identify with and something that they could sing. I’ve had many women tell me that I was the only woman who came along that was writing songs that they could sing within the tradition." View in High-Res
