Good Morning, Music Lovers! We continue our psychedelic album parade today with The Temptations and take a trip across the pond with ‘The British Are Coming,” an EP with music from the British Invasion and beyond!
Here’s your Sunday lineup:
11:00 a.m. Album of The Week: Cloud Nine by The Temptations NEW!
Released in 1969, this album was a turning point for both Motown and The Temptations as they not only added singer Dennis Edwards to replace the departing David Ruffin, and began a partnership with visionary writer-producer Norman Whitfield. Although at least half of the album is in the traditional Temptations R & B style, they began their journey into Psychedelic Soul with the song Cloud Nine and it’s great wah-wah guitar intro courtesy of Dennis Coffey, and especially with Runaway Child, Running Wild.
3:00 p.m. The British Are Coming: Various Artists
We go back to the sixties British Invasion here, but we do not stop there as we include music from our friends across the pond that spans a couple more generations (we’re very selective, however). You’ll hear The Beatles, The Zombies, The Hollies, Dusty Springfield, Petula Clark, Small Faces, Led Zeppelin, The Kinks, Queen, the Dave Clark Five, The Bee Gees, the Moody Blues, Rod Stewart, George Harrison, Them, Herman’s Hermits, Gerry & The Pacemakers, Badfinger, The Yardbirds, Traffic, Elton John, Lulu, Pink Floyd, The Animals, Yes, Manfred Mann’s Earth Band, the Spencer Davis Group and more!
This is the place to be, people. We run 24/7 with no commercial interruption. We’re global. We do not employ chatty DJ’s who want to suck up all the air in the room. And we’ve got a Mermaid in control of the music. Yes, she’s The Music Mermaid. Get your shit together and push the button below.
