We’ve Got New Bonnie Raitt, The Summer of Love, Live Dead, and Our Album of The Week on Saturday, November 28, 2020

It’s Saturday, and that means it’s like Grand Central Station for music lovers! We’ve got some great stuff today, but guess what? It’s still only a total of eight hours of programming in a 24-hour play cycle.

Bonnie Raitt. Great Fucking Voice. Badass Guitarist. Legend.

Here’s today’s line-up!

11:00 a.m. The Summer of Love, Volume One: Various Artists

Undoubtedly my time here. This was a time in music history when so many really good sounds were made. And they didn’t all sound the fucking same, or come out of the magic box.

This playlist features Petula Clark, The Rolling Stones, The Beatles, The Yardbirds, The Spencer Davis Group, The Box Tops, The Lovin’ Spoonful, Marvin Gaye, Van Morrison, The Doors and many more!

3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Homecoming by America

One of America’s finest albums has its final airing today. Tomorrow when you wake up, there will be a new album posted on the blog.

7:00 p.m. Bonnie Raitt In-Studio Concert: The Wonderland Tape, August 5, 1977 NEW!

Bonnie Raitt live in-studio in August of 1977, one month after the release of her Sweet Forgiveness album — her sixth album and the one that put her on the map (although, it should have happened much earlier). It also provided her first commercial hit, Runaway, the excellent bluesy remake of Del Shannon’s classic.

10:00 p.m. Live Dead! The Grateful Dead Live at Onondega County War Memorial, New York, September 28, 1976 (aka, Dick’s Picks, Vol. 20) NEW!

Yet another live classic from the world’s preeminent jam band. Even if we repeated a concert or a hundred, you’d never know. They never sound the same and you always hear something new. (BTW, there is no Grateful Dead without Jerry Garcia.)

Tune in. Turn on. Drop out. That’s the order of the day. So, just do it.

Our Thanksgiving Tradition This Morning, Some R & B This Afternoon; Our Album of The Week and The Kinks Later, November 26, 2020

Good Morning, Music Lovers! Here we are on a rainy Thanksgiving with not a damned obligation except great music. And we’re happy about that.

Arlo Guthrie and his fellow hippies at Thanksgiving Dinner at the church that would inspire the song, Alice’s Restaurant, 1969.

Here’s today’s Turkey Day line-up:

10:00 a.m. Arlo Guthrie’s Alice’s Restaurant, Our Thanksgiving Tradition!

If you read the story in our college blog entry today, you know the back story. If you haven’t read it yet, you can — as they say — read all about it here.

2:00 p.m. DJ’s Choice: My Favorite R & B Stream

Every once in a while, I am inspired to string a collection of songs together when I am up late at night. The night I created this was such a night. I hope you enjoy it.

5:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Homecoming by America

We’re winding down on America’s Homecoming album, just a really excellent album. There will be one more airing after today before we choose our new AOW on Sunday.

7:00 p.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of The Kinks

When Ray and Dave Davies weren’t beating the living shit out of each other backstage (and sometimes on stage), they were making some of the best music on the planet. And for that, we are thankful.

Tune in. Turn on. And shovel in that Thanksgiving turkey, if you are so inclined. But whatever you do today, make sure you tune us in.
