Good morning, musicologists! As usual, it’s a ‘keep it simple’ Sunday with plenty of wide Open Stream and modest programming. Hell, it’s a day of rest.
Here’s today’s musical lineup:
12:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Innervisions by Stevie Wonder NEW!
Innervisions was singer, songwriter and musician Stevie Wonder’s sixteenth studio album, and it is largely viewed as his transition from ‘Little’ Stevie Wonder to a more mature, socially conscious musician. It was released on August 3, 1973 on the Tamla label (a subsidiary of Motown). At the 16th Grammy Awards it won for Best Album of The Year, and Living For The City won for Best R&B Song.
