Good Morning, Musicologists! We’ve got a great line-up today as we play tribute to Charlie Watts, a Rolling Stone from beginning to end, and celebrate his life and music.
Here’s your mid-week line-up:
11:00 a.m. Rock, Blues & Ballads, Volume One: Various Artists
This one gives us a little bit of everything. It’s just a great collection of individual songs by some of the best singers, songwriters and musical artists on the planet. You’ll hear from Warren Zevon, J.J. Cale, James Taylor, Paul Simon, Aretha Franklin, Bruce Springsteen, Jackson Browne, Bob Dylan, Steve Winwood, Long John Baldry, Maria Muldaur, Bonnie Raitt, Linda Ronstadt, Dusty Springfield, Eric Clapton and many more!
3:00 p.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of Creedence Clearwater Revival
Four guys from Berkeley, California, made some of the best damned rock n’ roll and swamp music on the planet. Someone once said they were overrated. I told that guy to shut the fuck up.
7:00 p.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of The Rolling Stones
Charlie Watts, the steady heart beat of the Stones, passed into that great musical heaven in the sky yesterday. He was a constant from beginning to end with the Stones; all he ever wanted to do was play the drums and he did it with style. Tonight we put The Rolling Stones In the Spotlight.
