Good Morning, Musicologists! Today is another (Almost) Totally Open Stream Wednesday, and it’s also a Wilbury Wednesday! What could be better?
Here’s Wednesday’s line-up!
Infinity (Almost) Totally Open Stream Wednesday!
We’re here in The Mermaid Lounge circulating about 26,000+ songs every day. No commercials. No talking heads. No politicians. No charge. No bullshit.
And today, we add a new feature to our rotation called Three-in-a-Row, so be listening throughout the day!
6:00 p.m. Wilbury Wednesday! The Music of The Traveling Wilburys
The Traveling Wilburys are the best damned supergroup ever concocted. They released some albums, some videos, and never wanted to go on the road. Five guys who loved hanging out and making music together, and what great stuff they left us. If you’ve never heard their catalogue, tune us in and see for yourself.
Good day to see what we’re all about. I keep saying that stuff. Sooner or we hope you’ll join us.
Good Morning, Ungovernables! It’s Truck Day at Ace and I’m already on the run, so here’s the lay of the musical landscape for today!
Here’s today’s line-up!
12:00 p.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of Electric Light Orchestra
Tom Petty called Jeff Lynne the best music producer on the planet. He found The Electric Light Orchestra back in 1970, took the Heartbreakers to new heights, and was a Traveling Wilbury. That’s all you need to know about this guy.
4:00 p.m. The Inner Sanctum: Episode 3, Death Has Claws
At least this particular death does.
6:00 p.m. Mark Knopfler & Emmylou Harris: Live in Verona, Italy, June 3, 2006 NEW!
