Good Morning, Ungovernables! The big news is that we celebrate the 70th birthday today of Tom Petty’s sidekick, Mike Campbell. And we celebrate in style with a great play list.
Here’s your Saturday line-up:
Album of the Week: It’s a Good Night For Singin’ by Jerry Jeff Walker
We bid a fond farewell to this Jerry Jeff Walker gem. Tomorrow we choose a new album.
2:00 p.m. Echoes From the Canyon: Various Artists
The birth of the California sound we’ve come to know and love.
6:00 p.m. Tom Petty & Mike Campbell: The Heartbreakers’ Dynamic Duo
Today we pay tribute to Mike Campbell on his 70th birthday, a very important cog in the Heartbreakers’ wheel. Not only was he Tom Petty’s songwriting partner, but he’s one of the best damned guitarists in the history of rock music. And he is about to release his first album with The Dirty Knobs in March. We’ll be all over that one.
10:00 p.m. Our Weekly “Live Dead” Episode: Dick’s Picks, Volume 32
Tune us in. You will not regret it. I swear.
