Good Morning, Music Lovers! Today is Saturday and, if you’ve been listening to us, you know this is the busiest programming day of the week. Today we’ve got a great mix of musical material for you.
Here’s your musical line-up:
9:00 a.m. Album of The Week: Home Plate by Bonnie Raitt FINAL AIRING!
This is the final airing of this great Bonnie Raitt album, and we’re starting early this morning so I must get a move on. Needless to day, tomorrow we will have a new selection.
11:00 a.m. A Little Bit O’ Soul: Various Artists
This is a great multi-artist list paying homage to the great soul and R & B singers of our time. You’ll hear Aretha Franklin, The Temptations, The Ronettes, The Four Tops, Marvin Gaye, Ray Charles, Otis Redding, Jimy Ruffin, The Drifters, Chuck Berry, Stevie Wonder, Carla Thomas, James Brown, The Shirelles, Etta James, Diana Ross & The Supremes, Irma Thomas, Curtis Mayfield, The Staple Singers, LaVern Baker, Nina Simone, Edwin Starr, Fontella Bass, Sam Cooke, Smokey Robinson & The Miracles, and more!
7:00 p.m. Linda Ronstadt: The Ballads
This could be described as Linda Ronstadt doing what she does best but, then again, she sings so many genres so well that it’s hard to stand definitively on one single style of music. She refused, from the beginning, to be pigeonholed. You’ll love this playlist and we haven’t heard it for a while.
10:00 p.m. LIVE DEAD! The Grateful Dead Live at Red Rocks Amphitheatre, Morrison, Colorado, July 8, 1978 NEW!
We’ve aired The Dead’s 1985 Red Rocks show before, but this is a brand new soundboard recording of their 1978 show at Red Rocks, one of the most beautiful venues to catch a great jam band.
Come on, folks. It’s Saturday. While some of us continue to serve the entitled retail masses, you can be sitting back and enjoying all this great music for free. Yes, you heard that right. Or you read that right. We’re not going to bother you with subscriptions, credit cards, or take your personal information. I promise. No lie.
