Petty Month Draws to a Close With ‘Wildflowers’, We’re All Under The Influence, and Later Tonight: Live Dead, Saturday, October 31, 2020

Good Morning, Music Lovers. I trust your day will be a good one. Today we bid a fond farewell to another Petty Month. Hey, with any luck, we could be streaming from his birthday bash in Gainesville. Fingers crossed.

Today’s single Tom Petty offering is the All The Rest portion of the new Wildflowers project. These are the songs that would have made Tom’s double album had he released it back in 1994.

A fan’s fond farewell.

Here’s today’s line-up:

12:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Wildflowers & All The Rest by Tom Petty FINAL AIRING!

Today’s Airing: All The Rest

These are the ten songs that would have been included on the ideal Wildflowers double album set. Congratulations to his bandmates, family and friends for making this happen.

The boxed set entered the Billboard 200 at number 5. The re-issue of the album Wildflowers has gone to number 1. There is no question that the world misses Tom Petty’s music.

Afternoon Open Stream, 26,000+ Songs, No Advertising, Totally Free

Listen for those Three-in-a-Row interludes throughout the day!

7:00 p.m. Under The Influence: Various Artists

Welcome To The Petty Party! Today We Feature More Wildflowers, Streaming & Dreaming, and Live Dead Later, Saturday, October 24, 2020

Good Morning, Music Lovers! The Petty Party starts today, with a morning and evening trip through Wildflowers & All The Rest. Some stuff you’ve not heard (at least here) yet. But hey, we’re keeping a balance. There’s other stuff too.

Petty. At home. On stage.

Here’s todays line-up!

11:00 a.m. Not The Album of The Week: Wildflowers by Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers

This is the new package version of Wildflowers. Tom Petty considered this the best thing that The Heartbreakers ever did. It was, technically, a solo album. Except the whole band was on it. So, it really wasn’t. But he did do somethings differently: Steve Ferrone and Rick Rubin among them. It’s a brilliant fucking album.

7:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Wildflowers & All The Rest by Tom Petty

Today’s Airing: All The Rest NEW!

Today’s offering is completely new: The songs that did not make the cut when Petty switched from a double disc to a single. Some of the songs here were used in the She’s The One soundtrack, but they were originally intended for Wildflowers.

10:00 p.m. Live Dead! TO BE DETERMINED!

We will have our usual Live Dead offering tonight. We’re just not sure which one it will be yet! We will keep you posted right here a bit later.

In between, we’re streaming great music, giving you some LIVE DEAD, and tossing in the Three-in-a-Rows, so you really should join us. Know what I mean?
