During the BBC Sessions featured in this playlist, Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page circulated in and out of the band.

4:00 p.m.     Album of the Week: On The Border by The Eagles

This was The Eagles third studio album, and they added Don Felder to go for a more rock feel than the first two albums.

6:00 p.m.    In the Spotlight: Booker T. & The M.G.’s

Booker T. & The M.G.’s were a musical force in the sixties. Formed in Memphis in 1962, the band was influential in shaping the unique sound of Southern soul and Memphis soul. The original band members were Booker T. Jones (organ, piano), Steve Cropper (guitar), Lewie Steinberg (bass), and Al Jackson Jr. (drums). As the de facto house band for Stax Records, they also played for artists like Otis Redding, Sam & Dave, Albert King, Wilson Pickett, and Delaney & Bonnie.

Tune us in for a great musical feast. We’re free. All the time.
