We Kick Off Tom Petty Month Today and Give You Some ‘Travelin’ Fever’ Action, Friday, October 1, 2021

Good Morning, Pettyologists! It’s Rocktober, and that makes it Tom Petty Month. Now, we are not out to compete with any other music outlet by any stretch. But you’ll be seeing a bit more of The Heartbreakers, Mudcrutch, and The Traveling Wilburys than usual this month. And that’s a good thing.

Here’s today’s line-up:

11:00 a.m. Travelin’ Fever: Various Artists

We kick off the day with our Travelin’ Fever EP. You’ll hear Little Feat, Linda Ronstadt, Asleep At The Wheel, Willie Nelson, Janis Joplin, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, The Band, Neil Young, Sheryl Crow, Loggins & Messina, Jesse Winchester, Fats Domino, Del Shannon, Cream, Led Zeppelin, Joan Baez, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Jerry Jeff Walker, Ray Charles, Guy Clark, Creedence Clearwater Revival, and many more!

7:00 p.m. Not The Album of The Week: Hypnotic Eye by Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers

We kick off Tom Petty month with Hypnotic Eye, the final studio album by The Heartbreakers released in 2014. It is not our album of the week because it has already been our album of the week. The reason we kick off with this album is it’s hard for a band to be this good nearly forty years on. In my mind, this album competes with Damn The Torpedos as The Heartbreakers’ best album. And The Heartbreakers were still packing them in. On the Hypnotic Eye tour, they played to 40,000 people in Boston’s historic Fenway Park.

Today’s the day, folks. We kick off Tom Petty month. Our photo today is not meant to be morbid. We celebrate Tom Petty’s life and contribution to music, both of which were huge. We merely wanted to show the outpouring of fan love that Tom Petty earned over his gigantic career. He is still missed, but his music lives on.

Here’s today’s line up!

11:00 a.m.     Bob Marley & The Wailers Live at The Beacon Theater, New York

2:00 p.m.       Album of the Week: Hypnotic Eye, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers

It should be no surprise that this is one great album. Just when I thought they’d never top or even equal Damn The Torpedoes, they did. The only surprise here is that this band continued to make great music and remain at the top so late into its career.

This was the band’s 13th and final studio album before Petty’s unexpected and untimely death, and was released on July 29, 2014. It debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200.

5:00 p.m.      Joni Mitchell Live at Red Rocks 1983

9:00 p.m.      Folk Music From A to Z

Hear Woody and Arlo Guthrie, Bob Dylan, John Prine, Judy Collins, Odetta, Joni Mitchell, and more!

Tune us in, people. You won’t regret it.

The Petty Party Continues and It’s Happy Birthday to Stevie Ray Vaughan!

Good Morning, Ungovernables! Thought we’d do something a bit different today, so we’re taking a close-up look at three Tom Petty albums, two with the Heartbreakers and one solo effort, Highway Companion, one of my all-time favorite Petty albums.

Blog photo 10-3

Here’s the line up:

10:00 a.m.   Stevie Ray Vaughan Live at Montreaux (1982 & 1985)

Today would have been SRV’s 65th birthday, born in the great year of 1954 (along with yours truly). This guy’s life was cut far too short. One of the greatest blues singers and guitarists ever.

1:00 p.m.     Tom Petty’s Highway Companion (released July 25, 2006)

Don’t bother to listen to the critics. All they ever wanted this guy to do is rock out. He’s a whole lot more than that. In fact, his bandmates never understood why he didn’t make an all-acoustic album. He apparently didn’t think he was a good enough guitar player to go there. (He may be no Mike Campbell, but he’s no slouch on that thing.) This is, in my humble opinion, one of the finest albums I’ve heard.

4:00 p.m.     Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers’ Hypnotic Eye (released July 29, 2014)

The Heartbreakers’ thirteenth and final studio album was one of the best ever. Up until this release, I truly believed that Damn The Torpedoes, would go down in history as the band’s crowning achievement. Not so. (We will get to DTT also.)

7:00 p.m.     Tom Petty & The Hearbreakers’ Mojo (released July 15, 2010)

The Heartbreakers’ twelfth album was recorded live in the studio with no overdubs, and was created as a blues album. If you are a music aficionado and care to explore, there’s a cool little story behind this one.

Pull up a tab. This is going to be a good one.
