We celebrate Tom Petty’s life and musical contributions today on what would be his 71st birthday. We’re locked in on The Traveling Wilburys today (which also makes it a Wilbury Wednesday) and a great live stint in Lucca, Italy.
Here’s today’s line-up:
11:00 a.m. WILBURY WEDNESDAY! The Complete Wilbury Sessions: Volume 1 & 3
The complete Wilbury’s treatment with outtakes, alternative versions, demos, rough cuts, special sessions, never-before-heard songs. Just over two hours of Wilbury musical magic.
Not only is this pertinent to Petty’s birthday, but the very first Traveling Wilburys album (Volume 1) was released 33 years ago this week, on October 18, 1988.
5:00 p.m. Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers Live at the Lucca Summer Festival, Piazza Napoleone, Lucca, Italy, June 29, 2012
A great live performance by The Heartbreakers here that you won’t want to miss.
All Day Tom Petty Trifectas!
We’re not putting up a schedule on these. Suffice it to say that they’ll be running at the top of several hours of the day, all day and into the evening. You’ll just have to tune us in to listen in.
Great day to join our family of listeners around the globe as we celebrate the life and musical contributions of one of the most talented, humble and gracious artists ever to grace the planet. You will not regret it.
