Good Morning, Ungovernables! We lost another troubadour this week. John Prine passed away, leaving yet another hole in the singer/songwriter category. We pay him respects.
John Prine and Bonnie Raitt singing the wondrous Angel From Montgomery.
Here’s your Friday line-up:
1:00 p.m. Bob Dylan’s Murder Most Foul
Dylan’s first new release in 8 years is his perspective on the assassination of John F. Kennedy or, as I refer to it, the beginning of our end. This is the first Dylan song to top the Billboard charts in his career (not that he ever gave a shit about that), a testament to both of their legacies.
4:00 p.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of John Prine NEW!
Singer-Songwriters aren’t easy to come by, and we lost one of the most revered of his generation this week. John Prine’s Angel From Montgomery remains Bonnie Raitt’s defining tune to this day.
7:00 p.m. That Sweet Soul Sound: Various Artists
The Four Tops, Stevie Wonder, Ray Charles, Aretha Franklin, Bill Withers, Ann Peebles, Curtis Mayfield, Roberta Flack, The Staple Singers, and many more.
Tune us in. And did I mention that this weekend we have Sixties Sunday?
