Saturday Brings a Trip on The Psychedelic Express, The Final Airing of Our AOW, and Nanci Griffith Featured as Our New Singer-Songwriter, November 19, 2022

Good Morning, Musicologists! Today we take a prolonged trip on The Psychedelic Express. We’ve also got our final airing of Janis Joplin’s AOW and we bring on Nanci Griffith as our featured singer-songwriter for this week.

Here’s today’s lineup:

9:00 a.m. Album of The Week: I Got Dem Ol’ Kozmic Blues Again Mama by Janis Joplin FINAL AIRING!

Today we bit a fond farewell to the only solo album ever released during Janis Joplin’s short lifetime. For this album, she brought on the Kozmic Blues Band as she moved from psychedelic music into a more blues-driven sound, and would go on tour with them later. Tomorrow, we’ll have a brand new album for you.

7:00 p.m. Singer-Songwriter Series: The Music of Nanci Griffith NEW!

We feature Nanci Griffith as this week’s singer-songwriter whose musical style encompassed folk and country, and what she called “folkabilly.” She was a frequent performer on Austin City Limits and, although she suffered from severe writer’s block from 2004 through 2009, she remains one of the most respected singer-songwriters in popular music. She often recorded duets with others, including Emmylou Harris, John Prine, Don McLean, Jimmy Buffett, and Willie Nelson. You can read more about Nanci Griffith here.

Get on board, people. You don’t need no stinking tickets, a membership, a credit card or anything else to enjoy the great music we have to offer. We’re here 24/7 totally free of charge and with no commercial interruption. There’s no time like the present, as they say.
