Good Morning, Ungovernables! It’s a fine music day today, not too little programming and not too much to hinder the flow of 23,000+ songs on a continual 24/7 cycle.
Here’s today’s musical landscape:
11:00 a.m. Album of the Week: Surrealistic Pillow by Jefferson Airplane
The Airplane approaches its final landing for this cycle. On Sunday, there’ll be a brand new Album of the Week, so enjoy Surrealistic Pillow while you can!
6:00 p.m. Joni Mitchell Live at Red Rocks Amphitheater, Colorado (1983)
I have seen Joni Mitchell in concert more than once, most notably during her Court & Spark Tour when she traveled with Tom Scott & The L.A. Express. I have never considered her a ‘warm’ person; she sometimes had attitude with her adoring crowd. I feel the same way about Van Morrison, having seen him more than once also. But brilliant? Absolutely no question. Some days they took themselves too seriously, but their music? That should be taken very seriously.
10:00 p.m. Live Dead: The Grateful Dead Live at Zoo Amphitheater, Oklahoma City, OK, September 25, 1985 NEW!
The world’s most famous jam band. The ultimate road band. They’re back for another spin with Live Dead. This week, coming to you from Oklahoma Put on your tie dye and light up a fatty. It’s a fucking Grateful Dead concert.
Tune in. Turn on. Drop out. Perfect for today. (And actually, every day.)
