Good Morning, Petty Lovers! We’re back celebrating Tom Petty’s life today with a really excellent outing from the 30th Anniversary Tour in 2006.
Here’s today’s line-up:
11:00 a.m. Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers Live at The Stephen C. O’Connell Center, Gainesville, Florida, September 21, 2006
This was a great outing all around as The Heartbreakers played their hometown on the 30th Anniversary Tour, replete with a visit from Stevie Nicks. We know you’ll enjoy this one.
3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Just A Stones Throw Away by Valerie Carter
Sadly, we’re winding down on this week’s selection. This is our second to last airing, with the final being sometime on Saturday. Get it while you can. This is a great album, and Valerie Carter is a great singer-songwriter.
7:00 p.m. In The Spotlight: The Music of Steve Winwood
Steve Winwood has given us so much great music over the years. This Spotlight feature covers his time with The Spencer Davis Group, Blind Faith, Traffic, and his solo career. You’ll hear a song titled Valerie in this set which is, oddly enough, said to be about the late, great Valerie Carter (see above). I saw him live at Great Woods (not when it was The Tweeter Center or The Comcast Center), and it was one of the best live shows I’ve ever seen.
Join us today and celebrate Tom Petty Month with us. You won’t regret it. This is just one of the live performances you’ll hear this month, and it is one of the best shows The Heartbreakers have ever done.
