Good Morning, Musicologists! Tom Petty Month gets underway in a serious manner today with music from their legendary residency at the Fillmore West in 1997.
Here’s today’s line-up:
11:00 a.m. Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers Live at The Fillmore, San Francisco, January 10-February 7, 1997
This is just over three hours of music recorded during The Heartbreakers’ legendary residency at The Fillmore West back in 1997. It is testament to the fact that this band is undoubtedly one of the greatest bands ever to step onto a stage and engage with an audience. I can honestly say that I’ve never seen better, and I’ve seen a hell of a lot of live performances in my lifetime.
7:00 p.m. Album of The Week: The Traveling Wilburys, Volume One FINAL AIRING
We bid a fond farewell to Volume One of the Traveling Wilburys two great albums. We’ll have the other sometime during Tom Petty Month for sure.
10:00 p.m. LIVE DEAD! The Grateful Dead Live at Cotterell Court, Colgate University, Hamilton, NY, November 4, 1977 NEW!
Yet another great live performance from the music world’s untiring, insatiable jam band who made college stops a staple during their lifetime. No matter what anyone tells you, The Dead ain’t The Dead without Jerry Garcia.
Before, in between, and after our programming we’ll give you our standard rotation of 27,000+ songs in Open Stream, without commercial interruption and without the chatty DJ’s. We’re free too, and that makes it even better.
We’re kicking off the new week with some Wide Open Stream courtesy of the Music Mermaid, a siren of impeccable musical taste.
We’re open 24/7 ’round the clock and we don’t ask for you to subscribe at any time. We don’t need your credit card. We don’t need your personal information. We just need your ears so you can hear the best music on the planet.
Good Morning, Musicologists! If you’re lucky number is “three” this is your day. We’ve got Open Stream but we start every hour with trifectas (three-in-a-row) from some of our favorites. We’re adding this to our repertoire.
Here’s today’s line-up:
All Day Open Stream Trifecta Thursday NEW!
Today we kick off a new feature called Trifecta Thursday. We’re playing it by ear right now in terms of how much we’ll do it, but we have more on the horizon and continue to build our Trifectas. Here’s what you will hear today.
11:00 a.m. Marvin Gaye
12:00 p.m. Guy Clark
1:00 p.m. Linda Ronstadt
2:00 p.m. B. B. King
3:00 p.m. The Traveling Wilburys
4:00 p.m. Aretha Franklin
5:00 p.m. Neil Young
6:00 p.m. The Byrds
7:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Goin’ Home, A Tribute to Fats Domino by Various Artists
We’re winding down on this week’s album of the week, a great array of songs by those who knew Fats Domino was more than just another singer. He was a pioneer in rock n’ roll. Nobody was singing the stuff he was singing back then. You’ll hear Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, John Lennon, Lucinda Williams, Paul McCartney, Willie Nelson, Toots & The Maytals, and many more!
Great day to tune us in. We’ve got a new feature for you. We’re totally free, run 24/7 without commercial interruption,we don’t ask for a subscription, your credit card, or personal information. We’re all about the music.
Good Morning, Music Lovers. We’ve got a wide open stream all day today except for our tribute to Dusty Hill of ZZ Top, our first open stream day in a while.
Here’s Friday’s line-up:
10:00 a.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of ZZ Top NEW!
Today we put ZZ Top In the Spotlight in tribute to Dusty Hill, who passed away in his sleep on July 27 at the age of 72. ZZ Top was formed in Houston, Texas in 1969 by guitarist and vocalist Billy Gibbons. After a few personnel changes, drummer Frank Beard and bassist Dusty Hill joined in 1969 and 1970 respectively. This line-up remained constant until Hill’s death the other day.
That is our only programming for the day. The rest of the day is wide Open Stream at the discretion of The Music Mermaid, who has impeccable taste, I might add. We’re free 24/7. We don’t ask for your credit card number of personal information. And we don’t disturb your music with advertising.
Good Morning, Musicologists! We hope you enjoyed the Fillmore Fest over the July 4th weekend. We’ve had a lot of great programming recently, so we’re opening up the week with a totally Wide Open Monday today as we prepare our material for the rest of the week, beginning with Tuesday Bluesday tomorrow.
In the meantime, we invite all you folks on Facebook to join our new group: Della Piana’s Ungovernable Musical Emporium and Museum. We have lots of fun and informative stuff planned.
