Good Morning, Musicologists! We wind up our tribute to the music of Louisiana, and New Orleans specifically, with a live performance by one of the most respected bands in The Big Easy. And that isn’t all for Saturday.
Here’s our Saturday line-up:
11:00 a.m. BeauSoleil Live in Louisiana!
A lot of New Orleans music is steeped in history, but there are modern-day bands playing all over the streets of The Big Easy every day. BeauSoleil is one of the more recent bands to make their mark. This is a collection of live performances from a number of locations in Louisiana. We think you’ll enjoy their style.
3:00 p.m. Echoes From The Canyon: Various Artists
Another of those historical music “scenes” is Laurel Canyon. Here, bands like CSNY, The Lovin’ Spoonful, The Beach Boys, The Byrds and The Buffalo Springfield developed their sounds. The British Invasion resonated with these bands, and these bands also had a creative effect on their friends across the pond. You’ll hear these bands plus Joni Mitchell, Jackson Browne, The Doors, and The Mamas & The Papas.
7:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Take A Little Walk With Me by Tom Rush FINAL AIRING!
Today we’ll have the final airing of Tom Rush’s Take A Little Walk With Me, released in 1966. Tomorrow when you wake up, there’ll be a new Album of The Week.
10:00 p.m. Live Dead! The Grateful Dead Live at Red Rocks, Morrison, Colorado, September 6, 1985 NEW!
Another new live concert performance from the masters of jam. As I continue to say, no two performances are ever the same…even when they happen on the same tour.
It’s Saturday, people. It’s time to kick back and enjoy some really great music from a really great radio station. That would be ours.
