We kick off the work week in style today with three great programming interludes interspersed among all that great wide Open Stream!
Here’s your Monday lineup:
11:00 a.m. Bob Dylan Live at Royal Albert Hall, London, May 17, 1966
Dylan was just about 24 years old when he played the Royal Albert Hall in London. We have that performance here to kick off our programming today.
3:00 p.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of Valerie Carter
Valerie Carter began her singing career in coffeehouses as a teen, then became part of a trio called Howdy Moon. The band released one album, now fairly obscure. However, she wrote the song Cook With Honey, which became a hit for Judy Collins later and managed to meet Lowell George of Little Feat, who produced her next album and became her mentor until his death. He introduced her to Jackson Browne, James Taylor and Linda Ronstadt and so it began. Valerie Carter has an amazing voice and that girl can sing. Give a listen as we continue to celebrate Women’s (Musical) History Month.
7:00 p.m. Little Feat Live at The Rainbow Room, London, August 4, 1977
Speaking of Little Feat, we’re back in London tonight for their performance at The Rainbow Room. It’s a good one. Don’t miss it!
