Good Morning, Musicologists! We open up with Open Stream, then we pick up the programming pace with our second to last airing of Bob Marley & The Wailers’ Exodus album plus new live Warren Zevon broadcast by the BBC.
Here’s Thursday’s line-up:
3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Exodus by Bob Marley & The Wailers
We’re winding down on this weeks’ AOW offering. Our final airing will be Saturday. Many feel this is The Wailers’ finest album, and it did offer several great hits (Jammin’, One Love/People Get Ready, Three Little Birds), but I say it’s hard to pick this band’s best album. You decide.
7:00 p.m. Warren Zevon Live at Hammersmith Odeon, London, January 25, 1988 NEW!
This is new to us here in The Mermaid Lounge, and it was broadcast by the BBC back in the day. There is none of the usual open and closing remarks, but the songs are great. A tortured soul here, an imperfect person for sure (aren’t we all), a guy who burned some bridges in his time, but a musical genius nonetheless.
It’s Thursday and we’re over the hump. Treat yourselves by tuning us in. What could be better?
