We Celebrate Lennon’s Birthday, Take a Trip to Surf City, and Party With Petty on Friday, October 9, 2020

Good Day, Music Lovers! Today we have wonderful run of musical programming planned around all that open stream stuff. Don’t miss it.

Here’s the musical landscape today:

9:00 a.m. Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers: The Last DJ NEW!

Yeah, we squeezed this one in after realizing that The Last DJ was released 18 years ago on October 8, 2002. This is a great album. If anybody is looking for just a great collection of great rock n’ roll that talks about days gone by and how music on the airwaves used to be, this is it.

11:00 a.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of John Lennon

Mr. Lennon would be 80 years old today had he not had the misfortune to meet Mark David Chapman. We celebrate his birthday today In The Spotlight, both with and without his mates.

3:00 p.m. Going to Surf City: Various Artists

As the temperature drops here in New England, we take a trip back to summer when we premiered the addition of surf music to our standard rotation. With Jan & Dean, The Beach Boys, The Blue Stingrays, The Ventures, and more!

7:00 p.m. Petty Theft: The Covers

We gave you the first playlist of Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers covers back at the beginning of Petty Month. This is our second playlist of covers selected right here by our DJ in The Mermaid Lounge.

What in the bloody hell are you waiting for, people? You’d think we were asking you for your name, rank, and credit card number. We don’t. Ever. All you need to do is pull up a tab.
