Good morning, weekenders! We are one day away and we’ve got some great music on the docket today, including our ’27 & Gone’ playlist, JT’s final turn as our singer-songwriter, and a closing set from The Beatles later.
Here’s Friday’s lineup:
11:00 a.m. 27 & Gone: Various Artists
The 27 Club has some incredible members, to start Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, and Jim Morrison. However, those aren’t the only musicians to leave the planet at the ripe old age of 27. There’s Ron “Pigpen” McKernan of The Grateful Dead, blues legend Robert Johnson, Brian Jones a founding member of The Rolling Stones, and more. Today we play musical homage to those who left us far too soon.
3:00 p.m. Singer-Songwriter Series: The Music of James Taylor FINAL AIRING!
JT takes his final turn as this week’s singer-songwriter. Tomorrow, we’ll have a brand new selection for you.
7:00 p.m. The Beatles: The Transformation Years
Music critics say The Beatles took a giant leap with Revolver, and we agree. But we also think all the signs of their explosion of creativity started just a tad earlier with Rubber Soul, one of the finest albums ever recorded by anyone. This playlist covers those albums plus Hey Jude, Magical Mystery Tour and Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Heart’s Club Band.
One more day to go before the weekend begins. What a great way to transition into nirvana. Great music at no cost, with no commercial advertising, and no overly-chatty disc jockeys. Just click the button below!
