Good Morning, Music Lovers! We’re pretty busy here today. We’ll keep you happy with some great music and programming features as you begin your weekend. I’ve had some email requests from some of our far flung friends to start our EP’s a bit earlier every once in a while, so here we go!
Here’s your Saturday line-up:
9:00 a.m. Are You Ready For The Country: Various Artists
Yes, it’s that time again where we focus on some real country (not bad pop bands with fiddles, as Tom Petty describes them), and the legends of country-rock. You’ll hear Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings, Guy Clark, Dolly Parton, Johnny Cash, Emmylou Harris, Linda Ronstadt, The Eagles, Neil Young, The Byrds, Gram Parsons, The Flying Burrito Brothers, Pure Prairie League, Asleep At The Wheel, The Ozark Mountain Daredevils, Townes Van Zandt, Steve Earle, Trio (Dolly Parton, Linda Ronstadt, Emmylou Harris), Bob Dylan, The Marshall Tucker Band, Jerry Jeff Walker, and more! This is just about five hours of uninterrupted bliss.
3:30 p.m. Album of The Week: The Gilded Palace of Sin by The Flying Burrito Brothers FINAL AIRING!
We bid a fond farewell to one of the most important albums in the evolution of country rock, the first from The Flying Burrito Brothers. Tomorrow when you wake up, there will be a brand new selection.
7:00 p.m. Bonnie Raitt & Friends Live at Ultrasonic Studios, New York, October 17, 1972
Our birthday girl tribute to Bonnie Raitt is a great “live” studio event from 1972 held at Ultrasonic Studios in New York and broadcast on WLIR-FM with Bonnie Raitt, Lowell George (Little Feat), John Hammond, and Freebo (also known as Daniel Friedberg), who is mostly known for his work with Bonnie Raitt. If you’re interested, you can learn more about this singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist here.
10:00 p.m. LIVE DEAD! The Grateful Dead Live at the CU Events Center, University of Colorado, Boulder, December 9, 1981 NEW!
We close out our Saturday night programming with another new live performance from the world’s ultimate jam band. This one comes live from the University of Colorado.
Again, this is a great day to tune us in. Every day is a great day to tune us in. We’re here come hell or high water, totally free to you without strings. There aren’t many things in life that come that way. So, get on it.
