Good Morning, Folks! We’re back to Moan-Day all over again with a great line-up, including a couple of spotlight features, one brand new!
Here’s today’s line-up:
11:00 a.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of Fats Domino
Was the man from New Orleans the first to play rock n’ roll? I think that could be the case. This guy was making sounds nobody else was making back in the day. He was certainly a bona fide pioneer of the craft, of that there is no doubt. His first single, The Fat Man, is credited as the first rock n’ roll record and the first to sell more than a million copies. Between 1955 and 1960, Fats Domino had eleven Top 10 U.S. hits on the Billboard charts. He sold more than 65 million records during his groundbreaking career.
3:30 p.m. In the Spotlight: The Moody Blues NEW!
We have a couple of live performances of these guys, but we thought it was an appropriate time to put a spotlight feature together in light of Graeme Edge’s passing on November 12. He was their drummer and the last original band member. We bring you the best of the Moodies today.
7:00 p.m. By The Numbers: Various Artists
We thought it was about time to break this one out again. Here are some great songs with numbers in the title, lyrics, or both! You’ll hear James Taylor, The Mamas & The Papas, The Rolling Stones, The Beatles, Chicago, Three Dog Night, J.J. Cale, Mudcrutch, Alice Cooper, The Doors, Stevie Nicks, Shawn Colvin, Rosanne Cash, The Searchers, Marvin Gaye & Tammi Terrell, Paul Simon, Wilson Pickett, Bob Marley & The Wailers, Johnny Rivers, The Byrds and more!
Listen, people. Monday’s a really busy day here in The Lounge. Lots of listeners start off our week. We’ve got the crowd from Germany, Denmark, Italy, Ireland, Canada, (Texas, shhh), Australia, Portugal, Spain and points beyond this morning. Some of these freaks have been on all night. Tune us in. Start your week off right.
