Good Morning, Music Lovers! It’s our usual full-slate Saturday as Tom Petty Month continues. We’ve got a great Heartbreaker’s playlist today. (Among other great musical experiences.)
Here comes your Saturday line-up:
11:00 a.m. Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers: Under the Covers
The Heartbreakers were not only the best rock n’ roll band I’ve ever experienced, but they were also the best cover band. They loved to add ‘oldies’ for their live shows, even instrumental recreations like Goldfinger and Booker T’s Green Onions, which happen to be two of my favorites. My first introduction to this was their inclusion of a very energetic version of Shout at the ’78 Boston show. Enjoy this playlist. It’s one of two we own. We will get to the other also.
3:00 p.m. Album of the Week: Give It Up by Bonnie Raitt
The final airing of Bonnie Raitt’s excellent Give It Up, our Album of The Week. Tomorrow is a new day. And a new album.
5:00 p.m. Tom Petty: Wildflowers & All The Rest, The New Releases
You’ll be hearing this short playlist regularly as we move toward the release of the entire package around mid-month.
7:00 p.m. Linda Ronstadt Live at Rockpalast, Germany, November 11, 1976
Linda Ronstadt as she approached her Zenith. She was in full control of her career from start to finish, and it shows.
10:00 p.m. Live Dead! The Grateful Dead Live at USAir Arena, Landover, Maryland October 9, 1994 NEW!
No two show ever the same. Yet another classic Dead performance here. This one in one of the hearts of the Deep State.
Turn On. Tune In. Drop Out. Sounds like a plan on a Saturday. You?
