Good Morning, Musicologists! Here we are again at the end of another work week (almost, if you’re a retail slave), and we’re getting you through with some great music today.
Here’s your music for today:
11:00 a.m. Ode To Morning: Various Artists
Looking out my window here in The Mermaid Lounge, it’s a beautiful morning. And what better way to kick off the programming today than with our ‘Ode to Morning’ EP. You’ll hear Joni Mitchell, The Move, Fleetwood Mac, 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, Pure Prairie League, Bob Dylan, Chris Hillman, Badfinger and more!
7:00 p.m. In The Spotlight: The Music of Jeff Lynne’s Electric Light Orchestra
We have not heard this one for a while now, and we’re happy to be airing this tonight. We give you former Petty producer and lifetime Traveling Wilbury Jeff Lynne’s primary music project by putting ELO In the Spotlight.
We could go on and on this morning, but we won’t. All we’ll say is that we have listeners from around the world on here every day: Germany, Greece, Italy, Peru, Brazil, Spain, Portugal, Australia, Japan, Russian Federation, as well as Kansas, Cali, New Hampshire and Wisconsin on this morning. We’re totally free 24/7 with no commercial interruption. Done here.
