Good morning, music lovers! We’ve made it to Friday and I know a ton of you will be celebrating St. Patrick’s day. It’s big here in Boston, but we don’t talk much about that since they don’t allow LGBT people to march in their ugly parade. They might catch it. But here in the lounge, we’ve got something better going on.
Here’s Friday’s musical madness:
10:00 a.m. Under The Influence: Various Artists
Yes, we have all been here at one time or another. Some of us with legal substances, some with illegal substances, and some of us with both. You will hear Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, The Byrds, Arlo Guthrie, Bob Dylan, Jefferson Airplane, Commander Cody & His Lost Planet Airmen, Donovan, Glen Frey, John Lee Hooker, Jonathan Edwards, Linda Ronstadt, Little Feat, The Traveling Wilburys, The Temptations, Small Faces, Steely Dan, Talking Heads, The Beatles, Neil Young, New Riders of The Purple Sage, Lynyrd Skynyrd, The Velvet Underground, The Rolling Stones, Dave Van Ronk, Emmylou Harris, John Prine, Jackson Browne, Steve Winwood, Led Zeppelin, Harry Chapin, The Band, The Fraternity of Man and more! Five hours of mind-bending madness.
7:00 p.m. Singer-Songwriter Series: The Music of Tom Rush FINAL AIRING!
The great Tom Rush, whose career has spanned more than sixty years, and who has launched several other singer-songwriter’s careers, takes his last turn as our featured singer-songwriter. Tomorrow, we’ll have a new selection.
Lots of good music today, and plenty of wide Open Stream before, in between, and after courtesy of The Music Mermaid. She takes care of things around here while I’m laboring in retail hell. We’re running 24/7 totally free with no commercial interruption. Get on it, people.
