Good Morning, Musicologists! We’ve got some great ‘various artist’ streams today, and our new Album of The Week by The Electric Light Orchestra!
Here’s today’s line-up:
11:00 a.m. Album of The Week: Face The Music by The Electric Light Orchestra NEW!
Face The Music was ELO’s fifth studio album, led by musical genius Jeff Lynne. While Eldorado took a more classical approach, Lynne here moved the band into a more radio-accessible style of music (although the strings remained prominent). It is the first Platinum album for ELO. Lynne would later produce Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers (Petty called him the best producer on the planet), and join Petty in The Traveling Wilburys. He still continues on with ELO today.
3:00 p.m. Deb’s Stream: Drivin’ Songs, Various Artists
Essentially, what we have here are songs that give me what we used to call ‘lead foot’ on the highway. Let’s see if these match up with yours. You will hear The Eagles, The Beatles, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Van Morrison, The Pretenders, The Doobie Brothers, Mudcrutch, Deep Purple. Blind Faith, and more!
7:00 p.m. Badass Guitarists, Volume One: Various Artists
We have a second volume of this also and we’re working on a third, but we haven’t heard this particular playlist in a while, so here it is. We have Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, The Beatles, The Yardbirds, Steely Dan, ZZ Top, Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, Bonnie Raitt, Little Feat, and Aerosmith in this multi-artist playlist.
Remember, music lovers, wrapped around all of this programming we still have the vast majority of hours dedicated to open stream. We are circulating songs 24/7, totally free, no credit card required, and no personal information requested. Just give us your ears. (Not literally.)
