We Close Out Tom Petty Month, Give You A New Album of The Week, and Folk Music From A-to-Z, Sunday (also, Halloween), October 31 , 2021

Good Morning, Musicologists. We’ve got another fine Sunday on tap kicking off a bit earlier so that we can give you a final Heartbreakers live performance this evening to close out Tom Petty Month.

Today’s featured Folk Music EP starts at 2:00 p.m.!

Here’s your Sunday Funday line-up:

10:00 a.m. Album of The Week: Dusty in Memphis by Dusty Springfield

This was the first time Dusty Springfield brought her unique R & B style together with the Memphis sound. It sold poorly when it was released in 1969, but as Springfield’s music became known and her legend grew, things changed. Later, it would be acclaimed by critics as one of the most important popular music albums ever made. It also spawned Son of A Preacher Man, Springfield’s “signature” song and her great version of Windmills Of Your Mind.

2:00 p.m. Folk Music From A-to-Z: Various Artists

Take a trip down memory lane to the present with one of the original “protest” musical genres, FOLK. You’ll hear Pete Seeger, Woody Guthrie, Odetta, Phil Ochs, Bob Dylan, Joan Baez, Judy Collins, Joni Mitchell, Tom Rush, John Prine, Nanci Griffith, The Stone Poneys, Bonnie Raitt, The Wallflowers, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Peter, Paul & Mary, Jesse Winchester, Eric Andersen, The Band, Harry Chapin, Cat Stevens, and many more!

8:00 p.m. Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers Live at The Fillmore, San Francisco, March 15, 1999

Earlier during Tom Petty month we played the recordings of the Heartbreakers’ legendary 20-might residency at the Fillmore West from 1997. Tonight, we close out another Tom Petty Month here in The Mermaid Lounge with recordings from the band’s 1999 residency at The Fillmore.

There are many reasons to tune us in, people. Must I keep listing them? I mean, I will if I have to. We’re totally free and we don’t ask for a credit card or personal information. We don’t accept advertising, so we don’t mess up the musical vibe with endless capitalist chatter, and our DJ is practically a mute. I mean, I know people don’t trust the whole “no strings” thing, but maybe you should give us a shot and we’ll prove it to you.
