The Byrds were an American rock band formed in Los Angeles in 1964. The Byrds’ line-up changed many times over the years, but Roger McGuinn was the one constant presence in the band. McGuinn was responsible for the band’s signature sound, courtesy of his 12-string Rickenbacker guitar. The sound was adopted and refined by Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers years later. In fact, Petty was photographed with his beloved 12-string Rickenbacker on the cover of Damn The Torpedos.
It’s Friday and the weekend’s coming. There’s no better time to tune us in!
Good Morning, Ungovernables! We are closing out the month of May with a bang with a playlist from the fabled Laurel Canyon, the debut of The (Young) Rascals, and our new Album of the Week!
Here’s your Sunday Funday line-up:
12:00 p.m. In the Spotlight: The Sounds of the (Young) Rascals NEW!
The Rascals (formerly called The Young Rascals) were formed in Garfield, New Jersey in 1965. One of the most underrated bands in history, The Rascals reached the Top 20 of The Billboard Hot 100 with nine singles between 1966 and 1968. This includes the #1 hits Good Lovin’ (1966), Groovin’ (1967), and People Got To Be Free (1968). Rolling Stone magazine called The Rascals the blackest white group of all.
The Rascals were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1997, and the Hit Parad Hall of Fame in 2010. The reunited for a series of concerts in 2012.
4:00 p.m. Album of the Week: Learning To Crawl, The Pretenders NEW!
Learning To Crawl is the third studio album by The Pretenders. It was released on January 11, 1984 after a hiatus that saw both James Honeyman-Scott and Pete Farndon die of drug overdoses.
Chrissie Hynde is sometimes overlooked as a pioneer in the male-dominated alternative rock music world. All of the songs except for one were written by her, and she’s a pretty incredible guitarist. The album resulted in five singles, including Back On The Chain Gang and Middle Of The Road.
7:00 p.m. Echoes From The Canyon: Various Artists
This playlist celebrates the popular music that came out of L.A.’s Laurel Canyon neighborhood in the mid-60s as folk went electric and The Byrds, The Beach Boys, Buffalo Springfield, and The Mamas & The Papas cemented the California Sound. From 1965 to 1967, bands came to L.A. to emulate The Beatles. Laurel Canyon emerged as a hotbed of creativity and collaboration for a new generation of musicians who would soon put an indelible stamp on the history of American popular music.
Tune us in, people. It’s Sunday, a day of rest, no matter what they tell you.
