We Begin Unpacking The Heartbreakers’ Fillmore Box, Give You Our AOW, and Hot Tuna ‘Live’ Later, on Thursday, December 15, 2022

Good Morning, Petty-Ologists! Today is the day we begin to unpack that box of wonder known as Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers Live at The Fillmore, vintage 1997. We also have our Album of The Week and Hot Tuna ‘Live’ at the same Fillmore later.

Here’s today’s musical lineup:

11:00 a.m. Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers Live at The Fillmore, San Francisco, CA, 1997, Volume 1 NEW!

Today’s the day we finally get into the long-awaited 72-song Fillmore box set from our house band, and a box of musical delights it truly is. We will be airing volume two on Friday (7:00 p.m.) and volume three on Saturday (4:00 p.m.). We promise that these will repeat over the next few weeks. The entire package has also been added to our standard rotation.

The band tossed out the script for their vaunted 20-night residency at The Fillmore, offering up a different show every night. For the first time, their “covers” of those who inspired them outnumbered their own compositions. We’ve said all along that they are not only one of the greatest rock n’ roll bands in history, but hands down the best cover band on the planet. The Fillmore box only serves to bolster our argument. Enjoy.

3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Dixie Chicken by Little Feat

We’re winding down on this particular album, so this would be the time to get in on this one. Our final airing will be sometime on Saturday. By Sunday, we’ll have a brand new album.

7:00 p.m. Hot Tuna Live at The Fillmore, San Francisco, CA, March 4, 1988

Tonight we’ve got another great show from a historic venue when we give you Hot Tuna live from 1988. We haven’t heard this one in quite a while, so it’s worth tuning in.

Before, in between and after, we continue to bring you our great wide Open Stream. The Music Mermaid has everything under control here. We have the ultimate faith in her. She has never let us down.
