Good Morning, Music Lovers! Those Mondays always seem to roll around again, don’t they? But you can certainly make it better by tuning us in. I promise.
Here’s your Monday line-up:
11:00 a.m. Bob Dylan & Johnny Cash: The Nashville Sessions 1969
In the midst of recording Nashville Skyline, Bob Dylan got together with Johnny Cash ‘in session’ in Nashville to churn out some music. As it turns out one of those songs would make it onto the album, The Girl From the North Country. The rest were released much later, and we have them here for you today.
3:00 p.m. All About Blue: Various Artists
Today’s multi-artist list is all about the color blue in the title, lyrics or both. You’ll hear Robert Johnson, Marvin Gaye, Shawn Colvin, Phoebe Snow, Linda Ronstadt, Van Morrison, Electric Light Orchestra, Jerry Jeff Walker, The Beatles, Cream, The Ozark Mountain Daredevils, B. B. King, Little Feat, The Smithereens, Canned Heat, Emmylou Harris, Bob Dylan, John Lee Hooker, Buddy Guy, The Doors, and more!
7:00 p.m. Emmylou Harris: Rare Tracks and Forgotten Gems
We have a nice 47-minute interlude to close out our programming today. These are some of the songs you may not be so familiar with, including some sung with The Pretenders, Linda Ronstadt, The McGarrigle sisters, Dr. John, Willie Nelson, and Steve Earle.
And then we’re back to wide Open Stream. Mondays always need a boost, so why not make it musical. Close your office door, pull up a tab, and listen in with your friends from around the globe today. You won’t regret it. I promise.
