We Kick Off Tom Petty Month Today and Give You Some ‘Travelin’ Fever’ Action, Friday, October 1, 2021

Good Morning, Pettyologists! It’s Rocktober, and that makes it Tom Petty Month. Now, we are not out to compete with any other music outlet by any stretch. But you’ll be seeing a bit more of The Heartbreakers, Mudcrutch, and The Traveling Wilburys than usual this month. And that’s a good thing.

Here’s today’s line-up:

11:00 a.m. Travelin’ Fever: Various Artists

We kick off the day with our Travelin’ Fever EP. You’ll hear Little Feat, Linda Ronstadt, Asleep At The Wheel, Willie Nelson, Janis Joplin, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, The Band, Neil Young, Sheryl Crow, Loggins & Messina, Jesse Winchester, Fats Domino, Del Shannon, Cream, Led Zeppelin, Joan Baez, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Jerry Jeff Walker, Ray Charles, Guy Clark, Creedence Clearwater Revival, and many more!

7:00 p.m. Not The Album of The Week: Hypnotic Eye by Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers

We kick off Tom Petty month with Hypnotic Eye, the final studio album by The Heartbreakers released in 2014. It is not our album of the week because it has already been our album of the week. The reason we kick off with this album is it’s hard for a band to be this good nearly forty years on. In my mind, this album competes with Damn The Torpedos as The Heartbreakers’ best album. And The Heartbreakers were still packing them in. On the Hypnotic Eye tour, they played to 40,000 people in Boston’s historic Fenway Park.

Today’s the day, folks. We kick off Tom Petty month. Our photo today is not meant to be morbid. We celebrate Tom Petty’s life and contribution to music, both of which were huge. We merely wanted to show the outpouring of fan love that Tom Petty earned over his gigantic career. He is still missed, but his music lives on.

Open Stream All Day Long; A Nod to The Heartbreakers in the Evening, Tuesday, October 22, 2019

Tues2019-09-16_13-05-39

There’s only one for the line-up this evening:

8:00 p.m.     Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers: Live at the Olympic (2002)

This is officially known as The Last DJ Tour. This was the one album that the Heartbreakers made that didn’t  have a unifying ‘theme’ to it, or so the rumor goes. I think the critics are regimented in this industry. Apparently, the prevailing sentiment among the snobby writers is that a mere collection of fucking great songs isn’t enough.

Actually, The Last DJ is (and always has been) about greed –that’s the only unifying theme it needs. Tom Petty was the one music artist who stood up and told the industry that he thought music was overpriced and that’s why people pirated it. Everybody else remained mute.

Tune in. You’ll enjoy it.
