Good Morning, Music Lovers! This is the first day I’ve actually felt a bit more human since this thing started, and it’s my birthday. I am in good company in between Bob Marley and Tom Rush.
Here’s today’s line-up:
11:00 a.m. Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers Live at The Vic Theatre, Chicago, April 19, 2003
Today I give myself a birthday present by streaming one of my all-time favorite Heartbreaker shows, live from The Vic Theatre in Chicago.
3:00 p.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of Tom Rush
Happy Birthday to Tom Rush, a New England music treasure born in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, as we celebrate his 80th birthday.
7:00 p.m. Bob Marley & The Wailers Live at The Beacon Theatre, April 30, 1976
Yesterday would have been Bob Marley’s 76th birthday had we been fortunate enough to keep him around that long. Today, we celebrate his birthday.
Fuck the Superbowl. A bunch of overpaid egomaniacs, particularly in light of the irresponsible fucking clown prince of the Kansas City Chiefs, assistant coach Britt Reid, who chose to drive drunk while on Adderall and put two children in the hospital, one with life-threatening injuries. Turn them the fuck off.
