Today We’ve Got Joni Mitchell In the Spotlight, The Heartbreakers Live in Minneapolis, and Our Album of The Week, Thursday, July 22, 2021

Good Morning, Musicologists! We’ve got a brand new Spotlight feature today with Joni Mitchell. We’ve played her live concerts in the past, but she’s long overdue for a Spotlight position. Today she gets her due.

Today we have The Heartbreakers live from Minneapolis.

Here’s Thursday’s line-up:

11:00 a.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of Joni Mitchell NEW!

Joni Mitchell has had a very long career, spanning half a century. The Canadian singer-songwriter has fused together elements of rock, jazz, folk, classical, and pop to develop her own style and has toured and recorded with artists like Tom Scott & The L.A. Express and Charles Mingus. Today she gets her turn In the Spotlight.

3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: CHOBA B CCCP by Paul McCartney

We’re winding down with this great in-studio live album of old rock n’ roll hits. Saturday will be the final airing. On Sunday we’ll have a brand new album for you.

7:00 p.m. Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers Live From The Target Center, Minneapolis, August 3, 1999

Yesterday was Howie Epstein’s birthday, so there’s no better way to pay him tribute than playing a Heartbreakers’ concert. While Ron Blair (pictured above) was the original bassist and a founding member of The Heartbreakers’, Howie Epstein played bass and mandolin for the band from 1982 through 2003. He was also a great complementary vocalist to Tom Petty, singing much of the back-up on stage and in the studio.

Tune us in. We’re commercial-free, fee-free, and don’t pry for your personal information. In fact, we don’t even ask for your name. And, oh, by the way, we play the best music on the damned planet.
