33. Interview with Singer Sybil Gage

33.  We interview Sybil Gage.  Born and raised in New Orleans, Sybil Gage had front row schooling  in what makes that city great.  Now living in Florida, Sybil's performances transport  locals and tourists  back in time  to Storyville.  The  “Little Dynamo” is slinky in sequins, funky in fishnets, and tantalizing in her trademark powder puff pumps. Did I mention hats!  She sings Pre-War Blues, Vaudeville, Traditional Jazz, and many her own compositions. We talk to Sybil and listen to several of her songs.  A real treat for the new year.
