Good Morning, Pettyologists! This is the month we remember the leader of one of our house bands as we modestly dip our toes into Tom Petty Month. Hard to believe he passed five years ago yesterday.
Here’s today’s musical landscape:
11:00 a.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of The Traveling Wilburys
We kick off Tom Petty month modestly today with the greatest supergroup of all time In the Spotlight today. Tom was only part of this band, but he was an important cog in the wheel of friendship that made this band work.
3:00 p.m. Neil Young & Crazy Horse Live at The Cow Palace, San Francisco, CA, October 22, 1978
We’ve got Neil Young and one of his most consistent back-up bands live for you at mid-afternoon. We haven’t aired this one for a while, so tune it in.
7:00 p.m. Jimi Hendrix Live at The Berkeley Community Theatre, Berkeley, CA, May 30, 1970 NEW!
Hendrix performed this one just a few months before his untimely death. It’s also brand new to the station; we’ve never heard it before ourselves.
Before, in between, and after we’ve got that great wide Open Stream, and a little later today, we’ll be adding music to that stream to make it even better. The Music Mermaid demands it. We’ve got our usual cast of listeners on from around the globe. Join us (and we mean that rhetorically; there are no joining requirements except that you push that button below).
