lucinda-williams

Here’s your line-up:

11:00 a.m.    In the Spotlight: The Music of Creedence Clearwater Revival

How a bunch of guys hailing from Berkeley, California, could sound like they just walked out of Cajun country has always been a mystery to me, but CCR did it with authority. This is one of the greatest rock n’ roll bands ever. And by the way, happy birthday to Tom Fogerty!

2:00 p.m.      Lucinda Williams Live at The Fillmore

5:00 p.m.      The Band: Music From Big Pink

This will be the final airing of this week’s album pick. Next Monday, there’ll be a new album on the front page of the blog and playing on the station.

9:00 p.m.      Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers: The Debut Album

Happy 43rd birthday release date for the self-titled Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers debut album, released on November 9, 1976. To hear Petty tell the story, it just sat there and did nothing initially. Then somebody came in and said, “They’re playing you up in Boston.” The rest, I am happy to say as a native Bostonian, is history.

11:00 p.m.    The Ungovernables Report

With Sarah Freels and Adam Rice.
