Good Morning, Musicologists and Deadheads alike! We’ve got our usual great Saturday in front of us today with a great EP on tap to start the day’s programming off.
Here’s Saturday’s line-up:
11:00 a.m. The Female Species: Various Artists
It’s not an all-women’s music day. That’s coming up later this month. But this EP is music with the words, women, girls, ladies and other entreaties in the title, lyrics or both. Women have been inspiring music since the beginning of time. We’ve got some great stuff for you here today, good and bad, happy and sad, you’ll hear Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Jackson Browne, The Boogaloo Swamis, John Mayall, Hot Tuna, The Eagles, Elvis Presley, Fleetwood Mac, Electric Light Orchestra, Percy Sledge, 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: The Lost Tapes, Volume Two by Valerie Carter
This evening it’s the final airing of this great, new album from Valerie Carter, but listen up. In the very near future we’re planning a back-to-back airing of volumes one and two. Stay tuned. In the meantime, we’ll have a brand new album for you tomorrow!
10:00 p.m. LIVE DEAD! The Grateful Dead Live at Frost Amphitheatre, Palo Alto, CA, October 10, 1982
Another new one from the Dead, this one from Palo Alto. No two shows are ever the same from these guys, even on the same tour.
It’s Saturday and the official beginning of the weekend for most people. (Some of us have to endure the general consuming public for one more day.) It’s a great day to kick back, tune in, turn on, and drop out as one famous hallucinogenic master said. Just do it.
