Sonic Reducers | Farewell, Ronnie Spector

We share our thoughts on the life and legacy of girl-group goddess Ronnie Spector.


News of Ronnie Spector’s death came down the wire just minutes after we taped yesterday’s Sonic Reducers segment. We discussed doing another segment, but decided to wait. And as has become obvious, hers is not one of those celebrity deaths that is here today and gone tomorrow. So Eric Alper and I decided it’s not too late to talk about her life and legacy today. Push play to watch us mourn her death, marvel at her unique and timeless appeal and welcome the wealth of tributes that have come in the wake of her passing. Sonic Reducers. One topic. Two music nerds. Five minutes. Everything you need to know.
