We Celebrate Linda Ronstadt’s Birthday With All Linda Programming, Save for Our Album of The Week, Thursday, July 15, 2021

Good Morning, Music Lovers! It’s Thursday and it’s also Linda Ronstadt’s 75th birthday. We have people who are our “house” favorites. Linda is one of them. We plan on featuring these artists on our five-year anniversary, so stay tuned. But today and tomorrow? These are Linda days.

Here’s today’s line-up:

11:00 a.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of Linda Ronstadt

We cover Linda’s career from her very early days with The Stone Poneys up until her very last album. That’s a fifty-year career span. Ronstadt always says that she doesn’t identify herself as a rock n’ roll singer, but during the 70s, she was the number one female rock singer on the planet, selling out arenas across the country and playing a 20-night stand at The Universal Amphitheatre. I know. I went to forty of those concerts across the country.

3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Exit Wounds by The Wallflowers

Our second to last airing of this beauty, another great effort by Jakob Dylan and his mates. Our final airing will be on Saturday, so don’t miss this one.

7:00 p.m. Linda Ronstadt Live at The Orpheum Theatre, Boston, MA, May 14, 1995

This was one of the concerts I attended in a great old hall with excellent sound. Adding to the musical magic of the night was Valerie Carter as the opening act, and who joined Linda on stage for a few songs as well. Linda Ronstadt always said she would rather have been part of an all-girl band. We’ll get to that stuff tomorrow.

We will take two days to celebrate Ronstadt because there is that much material to cover, and because we remain committed to more open stream than programming. So, tune us in and help us celebrate Linda’s 75th year. Although she can no longer sing, she has left a great musical legacy behind.
