Happy Friday, Weekenders! It’s the end of another work week for most of us, but I have just one more day of servitude. Nevertheless, your musical journey is bright today!
Here’s your Friday lineup:
11:00 a.m. Ode To Morning: Various Artists
I don’t know what it’s like where you are this morning, but it’s very early here and the sunrise is magnificent today. It’s a perfect day for an ode to morning from Joni Mitchell, The Move, Fleetwood Mack, Foreigner, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Nina Simone, Cat Stevens, Hoyt Axton, The Beatles, Neil Young, The Rascals, Waylon Jennings, Joan Baez, James Taylor, Gram Parsons, Simon & Garfunkel, Taj Mahal, Dan Fogelberg, Harry Chapin, Three Dog Night, Ry Cooder, Tim Buckley, Muddy Waters, Linda Ronstadt, Jonathan Edwards, Townes Van Zandt, Bob Dylan, Chris Hillman, Badfinger and many more!
7:00 p.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of Etta James
Etta James’ career spanned nearly six decades and, in that time, she stamped her name all over a variety of musical genres, including gospel, blues, jazz, R&B, rock and roll, and soul. Tonight we put her In the Spotlight.
Here we are as we approach ‘weekender’ status. Technically speaking, Fridays are the official start to weekend. The only question still up in the air is ‘what time does it start’. How about right now? We are on 24/7 and we’re totally free. Every single day. Because life is far to short to listen to bad music.
