Good Morning, Music Lovers! We are continuing on with our party here. In fact, that’ll be happening for the next few days as we move into Women’s Week next week. Don’t be whining, gentlemen, there has to be at least one radio station that is willing to give women their due in this industry.
I flew out to L.A. for this concert on Christmas Eve. One of the most memorable musical events in my life. Was back for Christmas dinner. My mother told me I needed to have my head examined.
Here’s your Thursday line-up!
11:00 a.m. Linda Ronstadt Live at The Troubadour, Los Angeles, March 17, 1976
The Troubadour. Kind of like The Cavern Club during the British Invasion years. Everybody played there — Linda Ronstadt, Bonnie Raitt, Elton John, Tom Waits, Tim Buckley…and it’s still going strong. This particular appearance happened in the middle of Ronstadt’s meteoric rise to a position of power in a male-dominated business.
3:00 p.m. Album of the Week: Déja Vu by Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young
This is the second album by Crosby, Stills & Nash, but the first with Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young. My friends and I used to call them Crosby, Stills, Nash & (Sometimes) Young. This is a great album.
7:00 p.m. Linda Ronstadt Duets & More NEW-ish!
We’ve played this playlist once before, but then we added some stuff to it, so we’re taking the liberty of calling it new. We don’t think you’ll mind once the music starts.
Here we are again, people. Trying to get the U.S. to tune us in. You are all woefully behind your world neighbors. This morning, we’ve got friends from Serbia tuning in. Where the fuck are you?
