Good Morning, Musicologists! Here we are on a cloudy Thursday awaiting the blowback from tropical storm Elsa. But in the meantime, we’ve got some great programming going on.
Here’s your line-up:
11:00 a.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of Dr. John
Malcolm John Rebennack, Jr., also affectionately known as Dr. John, spent sixty years in the music business, both as a solo artist and a well-respected studio musician. Today, he’s in our spotlight.
3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Angel Dream by Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers
Tom Petty’s legendary music status lives on beyond his passing, thanks to the genius of Ryan Ulyate, his bandmates, his daughters and his wife. This reimagination of the She’s The One soundtrack on its 25th anniversary includes four never-before-released songs. Don’t miss it.
7:00 p.m. All About Blue: Various Artists
Another of our fun playlists that we haven’t heard for a bit includes the word ‘blue’ in the title or the lyrics (or both). You’ll hear Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, The Allman Brothers Band, Joni Mitchell, Linda Ronstadt, The Beatles, Fats Domino, Mudcrutch, Jonathan Edwards, Bob Dylan, Badfinger, Eric Clapton, Van Morrison, and more!
Tune us in, people. You will not regret it. We are free and ask for no credit card or personal information. We do not accept advertising. With the exception of an occasional station I.D., the music is uninterrupted. What are you waiting for?
