Yes, it’s the final day of June as we continue to melt here in the northeast. Hopefully, the end of the month will bring an end to this misery. It’s a (mostly) open stream day as we prepare for some fun on Thursday and Friday. You’ll just have to tune in to find out what it is. We’re not tipping our hat.
Here is your midweek line-up:
12:00 p.m. The Rolling Stones Live at The Saitama Super Arena, Japan, April 2, 2006
Today we’ve got some live Stones for you. I’ve only seen them a couple of times in my lifetime, both times during the seventies. They were great on stage, and Mick Jagger did not disappoint. During her heyday, Linda Ronstadt proclaimed the Stones her favorite rock n’ roll band. That has a certain symmetry to it if you’ve heard her live performance of Tumblin’ Dice.
7:00 p.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of Simon & Garfunkel
We haven’t aired this one for a while, and these guys certainly are due some time in the spotlight. They made their debut back when they were sixteen years old, singing Hey Little Schoolgirl. That was back in the fifties. Since then, they’ve sold upwards of 105 million records.
All around this light programming, we have a (mostly) Open Stream Wednesday, circulating our 27,000-song standard rotation. Definitely a good day to find out what we’re all about. Best of all: We’re totally free 24/7, uninterrupted by advertisers or chatty DJ’s who don’t know when to shut the fuck up.
