This article is for the real life guest star. For the character, see Linda Ronstadt (character).
Linda Ronstadt (b. July 15, 1946) is an international singer. Her many vocal styles and recordings in a variety of genres have resonated with the general public over the course of her four-decade career. She has won many Grammy Awards and an Emmy Award.
Linda Ronstadt recorded her lines for the episode from San Francisco with Jon Vitti.
This wasn't Ronstadt's first time recording a commercial jingle; in the late 1960s, as she was starting her career as a solo artist, she recorded a radio jingle for Remington Electric Shavers written by Frank Zappa; it was never broadcast.
Ironically, even though at the time of recording her appearance Ronstadt was in the midst of a series of Spanish-language albums - reflected in her suggesting to Barney a Spanish version of the Plow King jingle - the actual Spanish dub of the episode features someone else singing the translated jingle and dialogue, rather than Ronstadt herself.
