Good Morning, Musicologists! If you follow us, you know we’re very careful not to overplay our two house bands, a very difficult task since we consider them the two best bands ever to strap on guitars. Today, we’re not worrying about such things.
Here’s today’s programming:
11:00 a.m. Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers: Live and Loving It!
This playlist just underwent a very modest update, and it remains one of our favorite playlists. Here we have our very subjective favorite ‘live’ performances by Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers (and some stuff from Mudcrutch is indeed included). This is like a smorgasbord of the greatest live stuff from one of the greatest live bands on the planet, and includes some great covers of songs that Mike Campbell says come from bands that are part of The Heartbreakers’ DNA.
7:00 p.m. The Beatles: The Let It Be Sessions
In light of Peter Jackson’s new documentary about The Fab Four and the 50th Anniversary of Let It Be, we are giving you a great playlist here. It includes about thirty minutes of sessions that were previously unreleased, and then there are the final songs from Let It Be the way it was originally planned for listening (before the sessions were handed over to Phil Spector and he applied the Wall of Sound), which resulted in the album Let It Be Naked.
Celebrating our house bands together is something we’ve not done before, so this would be a great day to tune us in! It doesn’t cost you a penny, folks. That’s all on us. All we are doing is playing great music all day long. Tune us in.
