On December 10, 1967, Otis Redding was killed when the twin-engine Beechcraft he was riding in crashed in the icy waters of Lake Monona, just outside of Madison, Wisconsin. Redding was just 26 years old, and had just recorded his only number one hit, (Sittin’ On) The Dock of the Bay three days before his death.
It’s not uncommon for us to go on music hunts to find new stuff. We did that with Otis Redding and were able to add material we had not seen when we first began uploading to this station. We have added it to the standard rotation. In addition, we added these new artists over the past several days:
Alison Krauss (with and without Union Station)
Hank Williams Sr.
Kate & Anna McGarrigle
We also added to the Tom Petty and Grateful Dead libraries.
We have new shows on tap, and we will announce one of these by the weekend. The only way you hear about this is by following the blog, folks!
