lucinda-williams

Here’s your line-up:

11:00 a.m.    In the Spotlight: The Music of Creedence Clearwater Revival

How a bunch of guys hailing from Berkeley, California, could sound like they just walked out of Cajun country has always been a mystery to me, but CCR did it with authority. This is one of the greatest rock n’ roll bands ever. And by the way, happy birthday to Tom Fogerty!

2:00 p.m.      Lucinda Williams Live at The Fillmore

5:00 p.m.      The Band: Music From Big Pink

Happy 43rd birthday release date for the self-titled Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers debut album, released on November 9, 1976. To hear Petty tell the story, it just sat there and did nothing initially. Then somebody came in and said, “They’re playing you up in Boston.” The rest, I am happy to say as a native Bostonian, is history.

11:00 p.m.    The Ungovernables Report

With Sarah Freels and Adam Rice.

11:00 a.m.     Stevie Ray Vaughan & Jeff Beck: The Fire Meets The Fury

Do we need to say any more than that?

2:00 p.m.       In the Spotlight: The Music of Shawn Colvin

The importance of Shawn Colvin to women in music cannot be understated, although she often seems to bring up the rear.

5:00 p.m.       Petty’s Peculiar Picks: The Best of Tom Petty’s Buried Treasure

One overlooked aspect of Tom Petty’s illustrious career was his stint as a DJ for Sirius XM Radio. He started his Buried Treasure show on the Deep Tracks Channel, but moved it to To Petty Radio when his own channel went on the air. Prior to  his death, he did more than 400 hour-long shows that basically give you the history of rock n’ roll.

In this playlist, you’ll hear the likes of Howlin’ Wolf, Bobby “Blue” Bland, LaVern Baker, Little Richard, and Wanda Jackson, among others.

9:00 p.m.       Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers: Take The Highway Live, 1991

The only actual Ronstadt-approved live album ever released, and it didn’t happen until 2019. It was well worth the wait.

2:00 p.m.      Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers: Under the Covers (New!)

The Heartbreakers have to be the best cover band alive. Here’s some more stuff they didn’t write, but still made their own.

9:00 p.m.      The Monterey International Pop Festival

Before Woodstock, there was Monterey with Otis Redding, The Byrds, the Jefferson Airplane, Jimi Hendrix, Bob Dylan, and more!
