We’re at mid-week, people. And this midweek is a Wilbury Wednesday. But that won’t be until a bit later in the day. That’s why we call this (Mostly) Open-Stream Wednesday.
Infinity: Open Stream Music: Various Artists
We are wide open right up until 6:00 p.m. tonight, circulating more than 26,000+ songs, with still plenty more to add as we roll through the year.
6:00 p.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of The Traveling Wilburys
In my book (and in that of many others), the finest supergroup ever. Five big-time guys who were friends and liked making music together without ego. Bob Dylan (Lucky Wilbury), George Harrison (Nelson Wilbury), Tom Petty (Charlie T. Wilbury Jr.), Roy Orbison (Lefty Wilbury), and Jeff Lynne (Otis Wilbury) are the Traveling Wilburys. (By the way, after Orbison’s death, their names changed for the next release. But you can get all the fun details about names if you click the above link!)
Veteran percussionist and drummer, Jim Keltner (Buster Sidebury) was in the seat from beginning to end. Dhani Harrison contributed overdubs on Maxine and Like A Ship, and is credited as Ayerton Wilbury.
Today is Wilbury Wednesday, and you get the entire catalogue.
Let’s get our shit together, people. We’re starting to see some more U.S. listeners tuning in. Let’s keep that trend rolling! Share this with people you know!
