Good Morning, Early Risers! We’ve got some great stuff on tap today as we slide on down toward the weekend, including songs about good luck, bad luck, and just pure dumb luck.
Here are all the details on today’s line-up:
11:00 a.m. Good Luck, Bad Luck, Dumb Luck: Various Artists UPDATED!
We were on a roll here last night and added a few more songs to the list of songs about good luck, bad luck, and just pure dumb luck. You’ll hear Alison Krauss & Union Station, Bonnie Raitt, Linda Ronstadt, The Rolling Stones, Joe Walsh, Emerson, Lake & Palmer, Bruce Springsteen, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Bob Dylan, Sheryl Crow, Paul McCartney (with and without Wings), Cream, The Byrds, Mary Chapin Carpenter, and more!
3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Sticky Fingers by The Rolling Stones
Time for my Thursday mantra: Time’s getting short on this one. The final airing will be on Saturday, so get it in while you can! On Sunday, we’ve got a brand new selection to unveil.
7:00 p.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of America
Like all bands, the story of America doesn’t just lie in their “hits.” Those are the songs that the record company knows will certainly sell. The success of those songs also gives bands the creative license they need to produce great work. America is no exception. People refer to their stuff as soft rock, and I guess that’s one term. This band was so much more. For me, they are more along the folk-rock line, with unbelievable melodies and harmonies, and pretty fair songwriting. They’re up In The Spotlight tonight.
Come on, folks. Tune us in. We don’t even charge you. We’re in this for the music, and the music alone. And frankly, if nobody listened, I’d still be doing this. It’s my personal project. I’m sharing my music collection. Just push play. Okay?
