Good Morning, Ungovernables! We’re coming to the end of Petty month, and we’re pulling out the stops. Now we have Tom the performer and Tom the DJ on the same day!
Here’s today’s line-up:
11:00 a.m. Stevie Ray Vaughan & Jeff Beck: The Fire Meets The Fury
Do we need to say any more than that?
2:00 p.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of Shawn Colvin
The importance of Shawn Colvin to women in music cannot be understated, although she often seems to bring up the rear.
5:00 p.m. Petty’s Peculiar Picks: The Best of Tom Petty’s Buried Treasure
One overlooked aspect of Tom Petty’s illustrious career was his stint as a DJ for Sirius XM Radio. He started his Buried Treasure show on the Deep Tracks Channel, but moved it to To Petty Radio when his own channel went on the air. Prior to his death, he did more than 400 hour-long shows that basically give you the history of rock n’ roll.
In this playlist, you’ll hear the likes of Howlin’ Wolf, Bobby “Blue” Bland, LaVern Baker, Little Richard, and Wanda Jackson, among others.
9:00 p.m. Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers: Take The Highway Live, 1991
