Happy Saturday, Weekenders! It is here, and we’ve got the gang from Europe all tuned in and ready to go. Some of ’em have been there all night. What are you doing today? I know what you should include as part of your day, but I won’t unduly influence you.
Here’s your Saturday musical landscape:
12:00 p.m. The Female Species: Various Artists
Nope. It’s not 4+ hours of music by women. We’ve got that one in the hopper for mid-month. This one is musicians singing songs about women; songs with the word ladies, girls, or women in the title or lyrics…or both. You’ll hear Talking Heads, Jackson Brown, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, The Boogaloo Swamis, John Mayall, Hot Tuna, The Eagles, Elvis Presley, Fleetwood Mac, Percy Sledge, Electric Light Orchestra, The Beatles, Peter Green’s Fleetwood Mac, America, Roy Orbison, Billy Joel, Jimi Hendrix Experience, Aretha Franklin, Bob Dylan, Van Morrison, The Temptations, The Beach Boys, Linda Ronstadt, and more!
7:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Teaser and the Firecat by Cat Stevens FINAL AIRING!
This is the swan song for Teaser and the Firecat. Tomorrow when you roll yourselves out of bed, we’ll have a brand new album feature.
10:00 p.m. LIVE DEAD! The Grateful Dead Live at Manor Downs, Austin, Texas, July 4, 1981 NEW!
We’ve got another new soundboard recording of a great Dead live show here for your listening pleasure. But then again, the fact remains that every show sounds “new” when it comes to The Grateful Dead. (And by the way, no matter what they tell you, The Grateful Dead aren’t The Grateful Dead without Jerry Garcia.)
Before, in between, and after we give you all that great Open Stream courtesy of The Music Mermaid. She has impeccable taste in music, I must admit, and never fails to please. Speaking of which, we’ll be adding some new music over the next few weeks, so stay tuned!
