We Head to the Weekend With Lucinda Williams In the Spotlight, Jethro Tull ‘Live’ On Stage and Our Steely Dan AOW, Thursday, July 7, 2022

Good Morning, Music Lovers! We begin the final slide toward the weekend today with some great programming. This is the place to be.

Later today we bring you some ‘live’ Ian Anderson and Jethro Tull.

Here’s your musical journey:

11:00 a.m. In The Spotlight: The Music of Lucinda Williams

Ah, Lucinda Williams, a Louisiana native with that great twang in her voice as she sings the blues, some country, country-rock, folk and whatever she just about wants. She is undoubtedly one of the great treasures in popular music, somewhat underappreciated but certainly not by her peers. We’ve got her In the Spotlight to start off the day.

3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: The Royal Scam by Steely Dan

This is the next-to-last airing of this week’s selection by The Dan, a band whose albums never disappoint as they’ve successfully managed to marry their great jazzy arrangements with their insatiable rock energy. On Sunday, this one will be in the record books. Saturday will be the final airing. Plan wisely.

7:00 p.m. Jethro Tull Live at The Capitol Centre, Landover, MD, November 21, 1977

I don’t know how many of you have had the opportunity to see the band live on stage, but I’ve seen them a few times in my day. There is no way to describe Ian Anderson on stage, and you’re certainly not watching video here, but his flute playing is legendary and their songs are timeless.

Get on it, people. It’s all downhill from here and you might as well make it an enjoyable slide into the weekend, where we some more great program awaits your arrival. We’re on 24/7 with no commercial interruption and we won’t cost you anything but time.
