Good Morning, Musicologists! We have come to another Friday, and that means the end of the work week for most. But not all. Like me. Nevertheless, we’ve got the music that inspired the station today!
Here’s your Friday line-up:
11:00 a.m. The Sixties Rotation, Volume Two: Various Artists
This volume focuses more on the mid-to-late sixties, and you’ll hear many Laurel Canyon veterans here: The Mamas & The Papas, Simon & Garfunkel, Smokey Robinson & The Miracles, Jefferson Airplane, the Grateful Dead, Buffalo Springfield, Sly & The Family Stone, The Temptations, The Beach Boys, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Who, Roy Orbison, The Yardbirds, The Animals, Linda Ronstadt, The Byrds, Chuck Berry, James Brown, Blind Faith, The Spencer Davis Group, Elvis Presley, The Doors, Marvin Gaye, Wilson Pickett, The Band, Bob Dylan, Judy Collins, The Kinks, Jimmy Cliff, Creedence Clearwater Revival, The Zombies, Donovan, The Velvet Underground, B. B. King, Led Zeppelin and more!
7:00 p.m. NOT The Album of The Week: Let Me Up I’ve Had Enough by Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers
We did several of these last year, but this is the first one we’ve done this year. The album itself was released on April 27, 1987. The single Jammin’ Me, written by Tom Petty and Bob Dylan, was released on April 18, 1987. It would go to no. 1 on The Billboard charts, and piss Eddie Murphy off. Neither Petty nor Dylan would back down. You simply don’t mess with Dylan’s lyrics.
Great day to tune us in, as usual. We’ve not only got the music that inspired this modest, little music station, but we celebrate a great collection of songs from our House Band! What more could you want?
