Good Morning, Musicologists! We are in the final month of what has certainly been an eventful 2022 if nothing else, and we kick it off in style with some great programming. But fear not, we always have more Open Stream than we do planned music and that is by design!
Here are your tasty musical tidbits for today:
10:00 a.m. Singer-Songwriter Series: The Music of Neil Young
We’ve got the final airing of our featured artist in this series on Saturday, but you can tune in today and hear Neil’s musical contribution to music as a member of CSNY, Buffalo Springfield and as a solo artist collaborating with bands like The International Harvesters, Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real and his longtime stand-by, Crazy Horse.
3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Green River by Creedence Clearwater Revival
We’re also winding down on this week’s AOW by Creedence. Our final airing of this will also be on Saturday, time still TBD. This was but one of three CCR album releases in 1969 alone, a musical tour de force.
7:00 p.m. In the Spotlight: The (Young) Rascals
We wish a very happy birthday to the great Felix Cavaliere, the heart and soul of The Rascals, certainly one of the best bands during the best musical time of my life. It is only fitting that they occupy the spotlight as we close out Thursday’s programming.
We’re on the downslide to the weekend, folks, and life is way too short to listen to bad music. There’s no bad music here, we promise. We’ve got the first generation of classic rock n’ roll artists, those who inspired them, and those they have inspired. We’re on 24/7 without interruption and at no cost to you. Your money’s absolutely no good here. When you take the profit motive out, everything is better.
