Good Morning, Musicologists. Today’s mix is anyone’s guess because we’re pretty much Open Stream all day. That is, until The Heartbreakers drop by later to help us celebrate Tom Petty Month.
Here’s your Wednesday line-up:
Infinity (Almost) Completely Open Stream
We will be circulating 25,000+ songs all day long, like we do every day. The only difference is that our first bit of programming isn’t until 5:00 p.m., and that will be the only programming of the entire day.
5:00 p.m. Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers: Deep Cuts and B-Sides
This is one of my favorite playlists. It could have been even longer. For most bands, these are A-side releases. For me, it’s when you get to this kind of playlist that you realize just how fucking great this band was. And I’m talking about all of them, even though it is clear that Petty was the driving force in their success. As with Mudcrutch and The Traveling Wilburys, it was a bunch of friends who loved making music together.
Now children, you have a great day and play nice with each other. In fact, if music tames the savage beast, this could be your day to tune us the fuck in.
