Good Morning, Music Lovers! Today it’s just cold, but by Saturday we could be buried in over a foot of snow in the Boston area. We’ll see how that goes. But today, we’re talking great programming.
Here’s today’s musical line-up:
11:00 a.m. The Beatles: Songs With Character
The Beatles certainly have had their share of imaginary friends: Maxwell and his silver hammer, Jeremy Hillary Boob (aka, Nowhere Man), Lucy who flew around the sky with diamonds, the tiger-hunting Bungalow Bill (who always took his mom). And some have been drawn from real life, like Penny Lane’s barber, the man in the mack who wouldn’t let John and Yoko get married, and Eleanor Rigby. We’ve got them here for you today in one place.
3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Blood On The Tracks by Bob Dylan
Once again, we’re winding down on this one and are preparing for the next album. This is our next-to-last airing. Our final will be on Saturday.
7:00 p.m. Repeat After Me: Various Artists
They say that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, and this playlist proves it. Here we give you the original versions of some great songs along with their reboots. You know, like Tumblin’ Dice by The Rolling Stones covered by Linda Ronstadt and Thirteen Days by J. J. Cale covered by Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers. Get the drift here?
Today we’ve added listeners from the Republic of Korea, Pakistan, Lithuania, and Turkey to the mix. When are you coming on board? It’s a really simple process. All you need to do is pull up a tab and use the button below. End of story.
