Winona is a native of Seattle and was a founding team member for the Gospel Highway. She loves Gospel Music and developed her appreciation through her mother who at times used to perform in a traveling gospel trio in her youth. Winona is very active as a community servant leader in the Greater Seattle community and nationally.
Winona, aka Lady Blue, hosts the Gospel Highway and Livin’ the Blues. Her early childhood memories listening to her parents collection of the blues on vinyl
inspired her to bring the nostalgic sound back to the station. Winona’s 93 yr. old father often shares stories about growing up in the Jim Crow South and how he made his way to the Pacific Northwest. Winona says ” My dad and I, enjoy reminiscing about his travels from Louisiana to Chicago, how proud he is about living long enough to see a black man as President, and to be able to listen to one of his little girl’s on 91.3 as she captures the essence of acoustic, delta, and the full array of blues artists and their recordings”.
