Last fall I had the pleasure of spending an hour on the phone with University of Wisconsin alumnus Allee Willis for this On Wisconsin magazine feature, published in the Spring 2019 issue. Allee is a two-time Grammy Award winner, Emmy and Tony nominee, and recent inductee in the Songwriters Hall of Fame . . . and she’s also one of the most interesting people I’ve ever spoken with.
Update December 26, 2019: Grammy-winning songwriter Allee Willis passed away just before Christmas. Here, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel quotes much of my story in their tribute to Willis.
