Good Morning, Musicologists! We’ve got three classic rock acts lined up for you today as we head into a brand new work week!
Here’s your Monday, Monday line-up:
11:00 a.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of Roy Orbison
Today we say Happy Birthday (April 23, actually), Lefty Wilbury, also known as The Big O and the Caruso of Rock. You can also call him Roy Orbison, friend of Tom, Bob, and George. Today we give you the full spectrum of Roy Orbison’s talents.
3:00 p.m. Jefferson Airplane Live at The Matrix Club, San Francisco, CA, February 1, 1968
We are truly paying homage to the bands we love so much here in The Mermaid Lounge today as we take you all the way back to 1968 for this great performance at The Matrix Club in San Francisco.
7:00 p.m. The Beatles Complete Apple Rooftop Concert, London, UK, January 30, 1969
It was short and, oh, so sweet. I would love to have been there for the final live performance ever by the Fab Four. The city was at a standstill, people were getting out of their cars to listen, and the Bobbies were clearly trying to figure out where the music was coming from. It was a great way to go out, as they say.
It’s Monday, so why not improve your prospects by tuning us in today! We’re giving you some great classic rock mixed in with all that great wide Open Stream. And it’s all for free, people. What could be better besides a long weekend?
