Good morning Latin rock lovers and musicologists alike! Today we give Santana its due by putting Carlos Santana and his great band In the Spotlight. We also give you some ‘live’ Hot Tuna and the Women wrap up the programming later.
Here’s today’s musical lineup:
11:00 a.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of Santana NEW!
Guitar great Carlos Santana started his band in San Francisco back in 1966. They appeared for the first time at Woodstock in 1969. Santana has stood the test of time, but with many different lineups over the years. The one constant has been Carlos Santana. He recently reunited the original band on the road. We finally give Carlos Santana and his band the spotlight it deserves.
3:00 p.m. Hot Tuna Live at The Fillmore West, San Francisco, CA, March 4, 1988
This great blues-rock band was formed in 1969 by Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Casady, former members of the Jefferson Airplane. Like Santana, they’ve had many musical lineups over the yeard, but Kaukonen and Casady have remained the band’s centerpieces. Today we have them live from The Fillmore.
7:00 p.m. The All-Girl Revue Five, Various Artists
We close out the evening’s programming with the women of music. I keep typing the ‘women of rock’ but that would be inaccurate because these female-based playlists offer such a diverse array of styles. You’ll hear Joni Mitchell, Carly Simon, Jackie DeShannon, Chi Coltrane, Emmylou Harris, Linda Ronstadt, Dolly Parton, Petula Clark, Irma Thomas, Chrissie Hynde (The Pretenders), Christine McVie (Fleetwood Mac), Sheryl Crow, Shawn Colvin, Ann Peebles, Valerie Carter, Rosanne Cash, Lucinda Williams and more!
We’ve beefed up our rotation adding artists like blues artists like Ellen McIlwaine and early Christine McVie, new reggae/ska music from the I-Threes, Desmond Dekker and Rita Marley and we’ve got more waiting in the chute. We’re on 24/7 and we are totally free. No joke and no strings. We are also free of commercial advertising. You’re not risking a thing trying us out.
