Yes, folks, we’re heading for the weekend with some great music today. We’ve got Jakob Dylan & The Wallflowers In the Spotlight to start things off, Bonnie Raitt to close them out, and Roberta Flack’s AOW in between. What could be better?
Here’s today’s musical landscape:
11:00 a.m. In The Spotlight: Jakob Dylan & The Wallflowers
And some Jakob Dylan without The Wallflowers as well. Bob’s boy is no slouch. He comes from great genetic stock when it comes to being a singer-songwriter. Today we put him and his mates front and center to start it all off.
3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: First Take by Roberta Flack
This will be our next-to-last airing of this great R & B album by Roberta Flack. This seems to be on everyone’s list of the best R & B albums ever made, and rightfully so. Give it a listen before it goes away. Saturday will be the final airing. Time TBD.
7:00 p.m. Bonnie Raitt Live In Studio: The Wonderland Tape, Vara Studios, Hilversum, The Netherlands, August 5, 1977
Enjoy this early Bonnie Raitt outing, a rare copy of the original tape complete with raw material, some of which was used for broadcast on Dutch television. This is a mono recording, but should captivate any Bonnie Raitt fan.
Kick back and enjoy some music from The Mermaid Lounge. You’re always in good hands here with The Music Mermaid in charge. She’s got her shit together. (At least musically.) We’re on 24/7 totally free and uninterrupted by commercial advertising of any kind. We’re all about the music.
