It’s Another (Mostly) Open Stream Wednesday Until The Beatles, November 4, 2020

Good Morning, Musicologists! We’ve got our usual (mostly) Open Stream Wednesday. But beyond that, we’ve got single-origin programming today from our other house band.

Paul, John and George during the Let It Be Sessions.

Here’s today’s line-up:

24/7 Daily (Mostly) Open Stream

This is not just on Wednesday. The majority of the 24-hour music cycle is simply open streaming our vast catalogue. We average about 6-7 hours total daily in special programming; some days far fewer.

5:00 p.m. The Beatles: The Let It Be Sessions

These are previously unreleased sessions of The Beatles during the recording of the Let It Be album, a rare inside-the-studio look at the fab four at work.

7:00 p.m. Not the Album of The Week: Let It Be…Naked by The Beatles

Let It Be the way it was meant to be heard, stripped down without the wall of sound. Before Phil Spector got his grubby little fingers on it. It’s not that I don’t like the original album. I own it. But when this was released, a great album became even better.

Tune in. Turn on. Drop out. That was very good advice. Especially now. Take the edge off. Listen to some good music instead. Come on. You know you want to.

Welcome to Tuesday Bluesday! Hear Our Blues Playlist, Our Album of The Week, and Winwood & Clapton Live Later, November 3, 2020

You won’t get any election updates from us. You’ll only hear music. Because here at #BecomeUngovernable Radio, we know what the only path is. In the meantime, we’ve got great music.

The House of Blues, New Orleans. One of my favorite places.

Here’s your Tuesday Bluesday line-up!

11:00 a.m. Something Old, New, Borrowed, Blues: Various Artists

The playlist created for Blues Week (September 2020) is now a permanent fixture here, and is actually being expanded for Open Stream days. You will hear Eric Clapton, B.B. King, Delbert McClinton, Little Walter, Slim Harpo, The Robert Cray Band, James Cotton, Koko Taylor, Long John Baldry, John Lee Hooker, Canned Heat and many more!

3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Sweet Baby James by James Taylor

I remember seeing JT live several times, once was out at Tanglewood in the Berkshires of Massachusetts. When he sang

Now the first of December was covered with snow
So was the turnpike from Stockbridge to Boston
The Berkshires seemed dream-like on account of that frosting
With ten miles behind me and ten thousand more to go…

Lyrics from Sweet Baby James

the crowd went insane. I have hundreds of musical memories like that. Thankfully.

7:00 p.m. Steve Winwood & Eric Clapton at Madison Square Garden, New York

Two musical legends recorded live at Madison Square Garden during their performances in February of 2008.

Anyway. I have no idea what you’re waiting for, but hey, we’ve got time. I think. Hehehe.
