Good Morning, Musicologists! It’s Friday once again and we are giving you something old and something new, and commemmorating a great album release today.
Here’s today’s line-up:
11:00 a.m. Derek & The Dominos Live at The Fillmore East, New York City, October 23, 1970 NEW!
On October 23 and 24, 1970, Derek & The Dominos played two shows at the famed Fillmore East. We have the first night’s performance here today.
3:00 p.m. NOT The Album of The Week: Sargeant Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band NEW!
This is not a regular feature of our station, but we do it once in a while when the occasion calls for it. Today, we are running this in commemoration of the release of one of the most incredible albums of all time, Sargeant Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band. It was released fifty-four years ago on June 2, 1967.
This was The Beatles’ eighth studio album, and was the first where the track listing was the same on both the US and UK version. It was the first album to have all of the lyrics printed on the cover. Musicologists recognize this album as the first concept album ever. The album spent 27 weeks at the top of the UK charts, and 15 on top of the US charts.
7:00 p.m. Deb’s Stream: What’s In A Name, Various Artists
One of our most popular playlists is up later this evening, What’s In A Name. Songs with names in either the title or the lyrics. You’ll hear The Beatles, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Simon & Garfunkel, Fleetwood Mac, The Velvet Underground, The Band, The Kinks, Neil Diamond, The Rolling Stones, The Beach Boys, and many more.
We have a great line up today sprinkled throughout all of our great Open Stream, and you should take advantage of that if you haven’t spent time listening in yet. We are totally free and run 24/7.
