We hate to see her go, but Dolly Parton’s taking her final stage call as this week’s featured singer-songwriter. But don’t despair! Tomorrow we debut a great new artist as you will see.

8:00 p.m. Tom Petty & Mike Campbell: The Dynamic Duo

Speaking of songwriters, Tom Petty is right at the top of the list (his day will be coming), and he has had help from Mike Camp, his sidekick for many years, on many Heartbreaker songs. We debuted this playlist over three years ago and it never gets old. Tonight we air it to close out our programming.

We’ve made it to the end of the week and it’s Cinco de Mayo. For many it’ll be party time after hours. But for those who choose to party at home, we’re on 24/7 at no charge to you at any time. And better still, we do not accept commercial advertising, so there’s nothing to clog up the airwaves.
