10:00 a.m. The Band: The Last Waltz
If someone were to ask me the greatest American band next to Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, it wouldn’t be The Eagles. It would be these guys. They had a career that spanned decades and hundreds of songs in their own right, after starting their career as Bob Dylan’s back-up band. The Last Waltz was a fitting farewell for The Band, with the likes of Joni Mitchell, Bob Dylan, Emmylou Harris, and Van Morrison taking part. Here’s the music. We’ll be live streaming the movie in the next few weeks.
3:00 p.m. Terry Gannon, Ph.D.: Presentation on Climate at the Independent Institute on December 6, 2017
Is it real? Or isn’t it? Terry L. Gannon received his Ph.D. in electrical engineering and device physics from the University of California at Santa Barbara. In climate science, Dr. Gannon’s technical background in semiconductor science (quantum mechanics, optical phenomena, multi-variable non-linear systems and computer modelling) has enabled him to examine climate change theories comprehensively.
5:00 p.m. Tom Petty & The Hearbreakers: Deep Cuts, and Lesser Knowns
Tom Petty’s B-sides are pretty much as good as his hits, whether he’s with the Heartbreakers, Mudcrutch, The Traveling Wilbury’s or solo. Enjoy this one.
7:30 p.m. The Inner Sanctum: Study for Murder
8:00 p.m. Abby Martin with Peter Joseph: Abolishing Capitalism

10:00 a.m. Steve Winwood & Eric Clapton, Live from Madison Square Gardens (2008)

4:00 p.m. Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers: “Live” and Loving It!
Someone once told me that if you haven’t experienced the Heartbreakers “live” and in concert, you haven’t experienced the Heartbreakers. I have found that to be quite true. They were road warriors, and it shows.
7:00 p.m. Orson Welles and the Original Reading of “War of the Worlds” (1938)

The band that left Gainesville, Florida, for the big city (Los Angeles) would eventually morph in to Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers. This band includes Mike Campbell and Benmont Tench of the current Heartbreakers.
