Good Morning, Music Lovers! We’re at midweek here and we’ve got a lot of Open Stream punctuated with some great programming starting at noon today. Read on for the details (because the devil is always in the details).
Here are the details:
12:00 p.m. The Female Species: Various Artists
Hey, nothing sexist about this particular playlist. Just some great songs with the words ladies, women, or girls in their titles or lyrics…or both. This is always a fun exercise for me. There’s a lot of, “Oh yeah, hey, I almost forgot that song!”
7:00 p.m. Not The Album of The Week: Long After Dark by Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers UPDATED!
We’ve already got an album for this week, but it came to our attention yesterday that this great Heartbreakers album was released 39 years ago yesterday, giving us yet another opportunity to hear our House Band. This great album resulted in three singles, including the mighty You Got Lucky, in addition to Change of Heart and Straight Into Darkness.
We’re giving you an added bonus with this airing. At the end are two songs that were written and recorded for this album, but which were dropped. One is Turning Point, which appeared on the Playback album later. The other was one we never heard until after Tom Petty passed, called Keep A Little Soul. This one appeared on An American Treasure, released after his death. I love both of these songs and the beauty of having access to them is so that you can wonder how they were left off the original album, particularly Keep A Little Soul. At the end of the day, it matters not. These songs are here now and we get to experience them.
Great day to tune us in. Blah. Blah. Blah. We say the same shit every day in an attempt to entice you. We have no advertising budget because we collect no money. We need you and your ‘word of mouth’ to help us out. In the meantime: ENJOY.
