Happy Monday, and welcome to Fuck Christopher Columbus and The Ship He Rode In On day. Be that as it may, we don’t have to celebrate him. We can celebrate great music instead.
Here’s Monday’s musical landscape:
11:00 a.m. Mudcrutch Monday Madness!
We continue on with Tom Petty month by giving you the complete Mudcrutch catalogue this morning. They didn’t make it big as Mudcrutch, but they did morph into Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers. Later on, Petty would reunite the band and make it count. But just because Mudcrutch wasn’t the main act, it doesn’t mean the music wasn’t fantastic. It was.
3:00 p.m. In The Spotlight: The Music of Maria Muldaur
Maria Muldaur came out of the Greenwich Village folk music scene and created a career that combined folk, blues and just a little bit of jazz tossed in every once in a while. She was one of the great ensemble singers of the seventies (along with Nicolette Larson, Valerie Carter, Wendy Waldman, and others) that everyone wanted on their records. Like the others, she also had a hefty solo career.
7:00 p.m. Cream, The Farewell Concert, Royal Albert Hall, London, November 26, 1968
Cream’s swan song, recorded live and broadcast via BBC Transmission.
Hey, it’s Monday. There’s no better way to blunt the pain of a returning work week than to listen to some great music. We’re here for you 24/7 and, best of all, we’re free of charge. It’s all about the music. No shit.
