Good morning, Musicologists! We’ve got a strong midweek lineup for you today as we kick it all off with those sweet Laurel Canyon sounds that fused country and rock. From there we move on to Jackson Browne and Dylan.
Here’s your midweek lineup:
10:00 a.m. Music From Laurel Canyon: Various Artists
Laurel Canyon was a creative breeding ground for two generations of musicians as they pioneered the sounds of country-rock. You’ll hear The Byrds, The Mamas & The Papas, Buffalo Springfield, The Beach Boys, The Lovin’ Spoonful, The Doors, Jackson Browne, Joni Mitchell, The Monkees, CSNY, Manassas, John Mayall, The Eagles, J.D. Souther, Harry Nilsson, Canned Heat, Carole King, James Taylor, Souther-Hillman-Furay Band, Linda Ronstadt and more!
4:00 p.m. Singer-Songwriter Series: The Music of Jackson Browne
Today we give Jackson Browne his second airing as our featured singer-songwriter. He spent a fair amount of time hanging in Laurel Canyon honing his craft.
8:00 p.m. Bob Dylan, Live in ’75: The Rolling Thunder Revue
Bringing up the rear are ‘live’ selections from Bob Dylan’s iconic Rolling Thunder Revue Tour. Throughout the year we’ll also be airing individual shows.
Come on, people. Get on the bandwagon. We’re totally free. This is a labor of musical love. I promise. Your money is no good here in The Mermaid Lounge.
