Good Morning, Music Lovers! We’ve got a great Thursday lined up as we talk about one of the planet’s favorite subjects: Money. We also have our Album of The Week and Laura Nyro up later on
Here’s today’s line-up:
11:00 a.m. Money, Honey: Various Artists
I confess that Money, Honey is one of my favorite songs in all of rock n’ roll, and I heard it on this very radio station one day and decided to create a playlist around it. You’ll hear Elvis Presley, The Guess Who, The Beatles, Warren Zevon, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Randy Newman, Bruce Springsteen, Allen Toussaint, The Wallflowers, Chuck Berry, Laura Nyro, Willie Nelson, The J. Geils Band, Tom Waits, Pink Floyd, J. J. Cale, Peter Green’s Fleetwood Mac, Tom Rush, Albert King, The Traveling Wilburys, Barrett Strong, The Kinks, and more!
3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Forget About It by Alison Krauss
We’re on our next-to-last airing of this fine album. On Saturday, we’ll have the finale, and then a brand new album come Sunday morning. Get on it while you can!
7:00 p.m. In The Spotlight: The Music of Laura Nyro
Laura Nyro’s songwriting helped out many artists over her career, like Three Dog Night, The Fifth Dimension, and Barbra Streisand, to name just a few. But there’s nothing like hearing Laura Nyro sing them herself. Tonight you get the opportunity.
We’re on the downslide to the weekend, and it’ll be a three-day weekend for me. I have radio station musical upgrades on the “to do” list on my desk. We’re beefing up for summer with new playlists and new music for the general rotation. Join us. We’re free and we’re on 24/7 unmolested by commercial advertising. What’s not to love?
