Good Morning, Musicologists! How are you all this fine morning. It’s a bit bleak here in the Boston area today. We’re forecasted for heavy rains. We’ll see if it actually happens. Sometimes the weather is spot on, sometimes not.
Here’s our Sunday line-up:
11:00 a.m. Album of The Week: Love Stinks by The J. Geils Band NEW!
The J. Geils Band is a Boston favorite, and this one has been a long time coming. I know it’s sacrilege in these parts, but I prefer the music of the J. Geils Band to Aerosmith any day of the week. Just a personal observation. The band was formed back in 1967 in Worcester, Massachusetts under the leadership of guitarist John “J” Geils, and featured one Peter Wolf on vocals. This is my favorite J. Geils album.
3:00 p.m. Folk Music From A to Z: Various Artists EXPANDED & UPDATED!
We’ve elevated this playlist up to the level of our Sixties, Girls Day Out, and British playlists, with nearly five hours of old, traditional, and newer artists contributing. You’ll hear Woody Guthrie, Arlo Guthrie, Pete Seeger, Bob Dylan, Joan Baez, Linda Ronstadt & The Stone Poneys, Bonnie Raitt, John Prine, Tom Rush, Jackson Browne, Odetta, Leadbelly, Janis Ian, Tim Hardin, Jesse Winchester, and many others! We are still adding to our folk artist collection, so there will be another update down the road.
In the meantime, this new playlist appears in the Playlist section of this blog. Just scroll to the bottom!
Sunday is a day of rest, and the perfect way to kick back and relax is to tune us in. I could continue to give you the line about how we’re free and outside the system, but hey, I’m kind of sick of that one. So, this is all I’ll say for now.
