Good Morning, Ungovernables! Back to a full slate of four programs today (with plenty of open stream in between 24/7), and an inspirational decision to play “Western Wall.”
Here’s your line-up:
11:00 a.m. Western Wall, Linda Ronstadt & Emmylou Harris
I hate television, and I don’t watch it anymore. I knew Linda Ronstadt, one of my all-time favorite singers, was being honored by the Kennedy Center. So, I went looking for videos out there and I found them. None, however, were as moving as the tribute that Emmylou Harris paid to her friend and frequent collaborator.
It is in that spirit that we feature Western Wall, a beautiful collaboration between these two women. For me, the most striking thing about the album is the song selection and the composers featured. The set list is up already, and the composers of the songs appear there (please scroll to the bottom of the page).
Western Wall will, for absolute certain, do a stint as our Album of the Week. But that doesn’t mean we can’t feature it today!
2:00 p.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of Steely Dan
5:00 p.m. Jimi Hendrix & Stephen Stills: “In Sessions” (1968)
9:00 p.m. Dusty in London, Dusty Springfield and the Lost British Recordings
Don’t miss it!
