Good morning, Weekenders worldwide! We have arrived (well, most of us) and the first official day of the weekend. And we’re loaded with great stuff today.
Here’s Saturday’s musical musings:
9:00 a.m. Album of The Week: Pieces Of The Sky by Emmylou Harris FINAL AIRING!
This morning is the swan song for this great album by Emmylou Harris, which includes the beautiful Boulder To Birmingham, Emmylou’s ode to her musical mentor, Gram Parsons.
12:00 p.m. The Psychedelic Express: Various Artists
One of our favorite EP’s here in The Lounge is this great multi-artist tribute to the psychedelic music of the sixties and beyond. You’ll hear Vanilla Fudge, The Chambers Brothers, The Beatles, Electric Prunes, The Animals, Blues Image, Creedence Clearwater Revival, The Doors, Pink Floyd, Tom Petty &The Heartbreakers, Donovan, Strawberry Alarm Clock, The Byrds, Jimi Hendrix Experience, Traffic, Cream, Dr. John, Procol Harum, Fleetwood Mac, The Who, Canned Heat, Yes, Electric Light Orchestra, Tommy James & The Shondells, Mudcrutch, Blind Faith, the Grateful Dead, Velvet Underground, Big Brother & The Holding Company and more!
8:00 p.m. Singer-Songwriter Series: The Music of Bob Dylan NEW!
I know. You’re saying it’s about time we got to Bob. But then again, we’ve got a bit of a way to go here. We’ve still got a lot of high-profile artists coming. Arguably, the greatest songwriter of all time is featured this coming week. (Many consider Townes Van Zandt his closest competitor; he’s also on he list). Bob Dylan won a Pulitzer Prize in Literature for his songwriting skills, and he’s up at 8:00 p.m. tonight.
Yes, it’s kick back time (and no, I’m not asking for money). I mean, it’s time to kick back and enjoy the music. We’re on 24/7, we’re free of charge, and the music is free of commercial advertising of any kind. Give us a try today. You won’t regret it.
