Good Morning, Musicologists! We are at midweek and we’ve got a great day of programming set up for you today, including an airing of Long After Dark by Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers as we celebrate the 40th anniversary of its release in 1982.
Here’s today’s musical journey:
10:00 a.m. Color My World: Various Artists (pictured above)
This is one of our newest EP’s that talks about colors in the title, lyrics or both. You’ll hear from Valerie Carter, Linda Ronstadt, The Kinks, The Beatles, The Traveling Wilburys, Jonathan Edwards, George Harrison, The Rolling Stones, Neil Young, John Hiatt, Joni Mitchell, Jackson Browne, Bob Dylan, Ry Cooder, Elton John, Procol Harum, Electric Light Orchestra, Amy Winehouse, The Who, Emmylou Harris & Rodney Crowell, San & Dave, Jefferson Airplane, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Elvis Costello, Peter Green’s Fleetwood Mac, The Hollies, Jimi Hendrix, Booker T. & The MGs, Marvin Gaye, Lucinda Williams, John Cougar Mellencamp, Creedence Clearwater Revival and more!
7:00 p.m. Singer-Songwriter Series: The Music of Jackson Browne
It’s the second airing of our Songer-Songwriter Series featuring Jackson Browne. We’ve got one more to come sometime this week.
10:00 p.m. NOT The Album of The Week: Long After Dark by Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers
We close the programming with a one-time airing of Long After Dark on the 40th anniversary of its release (hard to believe it’s been that long). This one has already been our album of the week.
One more time: This would be a great day to tune us in and get a feel for what we’re all about. Hell, lock your office door, pull up a tab and turn us on. Find a project that you have to get done. Put a “Do Not Disturb” sign on the door and get your musical shit together.
