This week on The Local Take(Saturday 8am), we’re talking with the Atlanta Business League about their 37th Annual Super Tuesday conference and 25th Annual Women of Vision Breakfast. Two of the women essential to bringing this event to life virtually are Naima Judge from Bank of America and Liz Wagner, an entrepreneur known as The Hotel Lady. We begin our conversation with Naima Judge.

A decade ago, jazz icon Tony Bennett and pop superstar Lady Gaga struck up one of the great Odd Couple partnerships in recent music history. Singing together first on his album Duets II, and then on their co- album, Cheek to Cheek, Bennett and Gaga made history on the charts while proving some things never go out of style.

Now, with Love For Sale, Bennett and Gaga are serving up another round but with a poignant twist: It may be Bennet's final album. He's 95, and has been living Alzheimers disease.

Keyboardist Patrick Bradley follows up his successful title track Exhale from his new full length album. Exhale is Patrick’s fifth album and Completely Yours is an infectious track to kick off the fall season. As the leaves turn to give us their Autumn beauty and there becomes a slight crispiness in the air; this song will make you feel comfortable no matter where you are.
