Good Morning, Musicologists! How the hell are you on this fine Friday? We’ve got some good stuff coming your way today with plenty of wide Open Stream!
Here’s today’s line-up:
11:00 a.m. Jeff Lynne’s ELO: Wembley or Bust, June 24, 2017
Here in The Mermaid Lounge, we have the ultimate respect for all things Wilbury. That would include Jeff Lynne. Today we have the Electric Light Orchestra’s Wembley concert from 2017. Most people don’t know this, but ELO isn’t Lynne’s first band. The Move was, and they made the original version of Do Ya! Jeff Lynne is also responsible for a string of Heartbreaker hit albums and songs.
Afternoon Open Stream
Circulating more than 26,000 songs all afternoon, with some Three-in-a-Rows tossed in for good measure. Listen up.
7:00 p.m. In The Spotlight: The Music of The Hollies
The Hollies are truly one of the most underrated bands in all of music history, and were a big part of The British Invasion. This evening, we put them In The Spotlight.
Belgium, Serbia, The UK, France, Germany, Switzerland, Lithuania, Italy, Fiji…all tune us in. Where are you?
