Here’s today’s Sunday Funday line-up:
12:00 p.m. Album of The Week: The Lost Tapes of Valerie Carter NEW!
Known primarily as a “session singer” and background vocalist to most (not all), Valerie Carter was so much more than that. Her debut album, Just a Stone’s Throw, was produced by Little Feat’s Lowell George in 1977. She went on to release several more widely acclaimed albums. She was not only a singer, but a songwriter. She wrote Cook With Honey, which was a hit for someone named Judy Collins.
Back in 1995, I saw Linda Ronstadt in concert at Boston’s Orpheum Theater. Valerie Carter was the opening act, and she was a perfect fit. Ronstadt was dead on that night as well. But the best part of the night was when they were on the stage together.
A recent discovery of recordings that were never released has been transformed into this week’s Album of The Week, The Lost Tapes. Musicians and vocalists like Lowell George, Fred Tackett, Bill Payne, Linda Ronstadt, Nicolette Larson appear in testament to her immense talent. Valerie Carter: The little girl with the big voice.
3:00 p.m. The Original Sixties Rotation: Various Artists
The playlist that began our monthly focus on The Sixties. We now have two such playlists and are working on a third. Starts at 3:00 p.m. today and runs for a little over five hours. No advertising. No interruptions except for a couple of station I.D.s. No shit.
Get it together, people. You can either settle for “free” radio which is nothing more than an advertising venue and a lot of boring DJ chatter, pay for access to keep these slugs off. Or get it all for free like it used to be. Your choice.
Good Morning, Ungovernables! Today we have Wide Open Stream until 11:00 a.m. EST, when we begin airing The British Are Coming, more than five uninterrupted hours of British Invasion (and beyond) music.
Here are some of the artists you’ll be hearing:
The Rolling Stones
The Dave Clark Five
Them (featuring Van Morrison)
and many more. So, tune us in, people. You will not regret it.
