Birmingham’s “Voice of Civil Rights Movement” ill in NYC

Odetta in Birmingham. ILIGHT/FlickrSinger/songwriter Odetta is currently in critical condition at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York after suffering kidney failure according to a statement released by her manager and published on WFMU’s blog earlier today. 

The Birmingham native is still expecting to perform at President-elect Barack Obama’s inauguration on January 20. Those who wish to pass along well wishes will want the hospital’s address, which follows:

Ms. Odetta Gordon
Room # 719, 7th Floor ICU Unit
100 East 77th Street
New York, NY 10021

Thank my former student government advisor (and good friend) John Bennett in Savannah for the lead.

This is a NO spam zone

A quick note from your friendly neighborhood stationmaster here. First of all, welcome to all of you who’ve recently discovered the site. We owe a great deal to some emails in recent days that have begun to expose us to a wider audience. We do want to make sure that you’re enjoying the experience though and one recent email’s got us a little worried that folks are staying a little quiet.

We guard our email lists dearly, almost to a fault, because of how much we hate spam. Well, we got an email earlier this morning that said that after signing up for one of our email lists (though we’re still not sure which one), they started receiving spam. If you’re having that problem, we need to know! We’ve actually held off posting items today because of checking to make sure our lists were OK and not compromised. We only send out one newsletter a week using iContact, while the daily post emails are handled by FeedBurner. Those should be the only ones you’re getting from us.

Drop us a line using any of the methods listed on our contact page and let us know if this has happened to you. We’d really appreciate it.
