7:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Hotcakes by Carly Simon

Once again, allow me to reiterate that this is one of the best albums ever made, and certainly my favorite by Carly Simon. Recorded while she was pregnant with her first child, it resulted in two hits: Mockingbird and Haven’t Got Time For The Pain. But personally, I think the best song on the album is Forever My Love.

Here we are again, telling you to tune us in. We’re not for profit radio. Seriously. And we ask you for no credit cards or personal information. Sound crazy? What can I tell you.

Bob Dylan & Johnny Cash Record Together, “Timeless” Debuts as Our Album of The Week, and ‘What’s In A Name’ Playlist Later, Sunday, February 28, 2021

We are off to a late start today, Music Lovers, but the music is still great in spite of all that. We have a brand new album of the week, epic Bob Dylan and Johnny Cash, and a great playlist later this evening.

Here’s today’s line-up:

1:00 p.m. Bob Dylan & Johnny Cash, Nashville 1969

While Bob Dylan was in Nashville recording his Nashville Skyline album, he and Johnny Cash decided to get together to record some music. Only one of those songs made it to Nashville Skyline. It was Girl From The North Country. The others were released much later. We have those recordings here for you today.

5:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Timeless, An All-Star Tribute to Hank Williams NEW!

This is one sweet album of all-stars paying their respects to a counry legend, Hank Williams, Sr. There are a number of memorable performances here, especially from Lucinda Williams and Emmylou Harris. However, the one that stands out for me is Tom Petty’s version of You’re Gonna’ Change (Or I’m A Gonna’ Leave). Listen for it. Other contributors include Mark Knopfler, Shery Crow, Bob Dylan, Hank Williams III, and Johnny Cash.

8:00 p.m. Deb’s Stream: What’s In A Name? Various Artists

It’s Another Kick-Ass Saturday With The Laurel Canyon Crowd, Joan Baez, Elvis’ Birthday Playlist, and Live Dead, on January 9, 2021

Good Morning, Music Lovers! Saturday is our big day on the programming scale but, in spite of that, our musical day remains mostly Open Stream.

The Grateful Dead. The ultimate jam band at the closing of Winterland.

Here’s today’s line-up:

11:00 a.m. Echoes From The Canyon: Various Artists

It was all happening in the canyon back in the day. They were all groovin’ together, feeding off each other, and it produced some of the best damned sounds in the history of popular music. They inspired people like Jakob Dylan and Tom Petty. This playlist is about just over 2.5 hours and features The Mamas & The Papas, The Byrds, Buffalo Springfield, The Doors, Joni Mitchell, Jackson Browne, and more!

7:00 p.m. Elvis Presley: The Sun Sessions

We’re celebrating Elvis Presley’s birthday a day late. That’s usually how it goes around here. We do our best, but my multiple personalities have their limits. Today, we’re playing his songs from The Sun Sessions, recorded at Sun Studios during 1954 and 1955. It’s produced by Sam Phillips, owner of Sun Records, who gave Elvis his start, and includes one of the greatest (and some people argue, the first) rock n’ roll songs ever, That’s All Right. Happy Birthday, Elvis.

10:00 p.m. Live Dead! The Grateful Dead Live at Winterland, October 22, 1978 NEW!

We made it through last year for 52 weeks with no repeats. And we intend to attempt the same here. Let’s face it. It should not be difficult. The Dead played Winterland alone 48 times. This is just one of them. Enjoy, Deadheads.

Saturdays are always a fucking great day to tune us in. Why don’t you give it a shot? We are free. No credit card or private info required. No advertising accepted. No endless DJ chatter. You have no idea what you are missing.
