Here’s your Tuesday Bluesday line-up:

11:00 a.m. Gunsmoke Blues: Muddy Waters, Big Mama Thornton, Big Joe Turner, and George “Harmonica” Smith NEW!

As legend has it, blues music freak Link Wyler and some of his friends who worked on the Gunsmoke TV show were on hiatus from filming. They decided to his the road to film their favorite blues singers, who happened to be barnstorming the nation with their bands. This is the result of that music obsession.

We’ve got our second airing of this great album coming up mid-afternoon as Valerie Carter displays her considerable soul and R & B side.

We haven’t heard ‘live’ Janis for a while, and this is the perfect day to do just that. This one is from The Fillmore East. We have one great blues-rock legend singing at a legendary venue.

We Hit Our Midweek Stride With Our ‘Travelin’ Fever’ EP and Laura Nyro Live at The Fillmore, Wednesday, March 9, 2022

Good Morning, Travelers and Daydreamers. Today we’ve got our EP all about hitting the road, and we continue our celebration of the women of music with Laura Nyro.

Laura Nyro is one of the greatest singer-songwriters of her generation.

Here’s your midweek line-up:

10:00 a.m. Travelin’ Fever: Various Artists

When we were kids, my friends and I dreamed of buying a VW van and driving across country. We pretty much never made it out of the driveway, although we did drive to Nashville to visit the Grand Ole Opry. In this playlist you’ll hear Jackson Browne, Dan Fogelberg, The Box Tops, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Canned Heat, Bonnie Raitt, Bruce Springsteen, The Who, The Eagles, Janis Joplin, Del Shannon, Guy Clark, Asleep at the Wheel, Jesse Winchester, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Led Zeppelin, Emmylou Harris, Linda Ronstadt, Little Feat, Willie Nelson, the Marshall Tucker Band, Fats Domino and more!

7:00 p.m. Laura Nyro, Live at The Fillmore East, New York, NY, March 30, 1971

Sweet Blindness, Gonna’ Take a Miracle, Stoned Soul Picnic, Eli’s Coming…Laura Nyro wrote some brilliant songs that put others on the map. But there’s nothing quite like hearing her sing them herself. See for yourself tonight at 7:00 p.m.

We’re out there playing music for your listening pleasure 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year. All totally free of charge, and we do not accept any advertising. We pay for this out of pocket as a labor of love. Tune us in. We’re not kidding here. No strings.

The Fillmore Extravaganza Continues With Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Janis Joplin, and Hot Tuna, Friday, July 2, 2021

Good Morning, Fillmorians! We continue our celebration of Bill Graham’s magical musical vision today on our way to July 4th. We’ve got quite the line-up for you all today!

Here’s today’s fantastic line-up:

11:00 a.m. Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers Live at The Fillmore, San Francisco, January 10-February 7, 1997 NEW!

By all standards, the Heartbreakers’ 20-show residency at The Fillmore West in 1997 is the stuff musical legends are made of. You can read about it here in an article written after Petty’s untimely death in 2017. This is the first time we’ve aired the amazing three hours of music that came from that residency. It covers not only the Heartbreakers’ own hits, but also some great covers from the artists who inspired them.

We hear that the Petty estate and his bandmates are working on their own multi-album effort somewhere down the road that will include the special guests who came up on stage to sing with them. We loo forward to that as well.

4:00 p.m. Janis Joplin Live at The Fillmore, New York, February 12, 1969

Janis was no stranger to The Fillmore East and West. This particular performance was during Janis’ transitional period. She had left Big Brother & The Holding Company and moved on with the Komic Blues Band. The only hold-over from Big Brother was guitarist Sam Andrew. The goal of the band was to play more R & B and soul music than the hard rock she was known for. Admittedly, the band’s performance got mixed reviews, but there was absolutely no denying Janis Joplin’s on-stage charisma and performance.

9:00 p.m. Hot Tuna Live at The Fillmore, San Francisco, March 4, 1988

Hot Tuna rose out of the ashes of Jefferson Airplane, a collaboration between Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Casady, that played mostly blues-rock and Americana music. Although members have come and gone over the years, including Grace Slick herself, the band largely remained their baby.

We hope you’ll join us as much as you can today to celebrate the Fillmore. In between all this great stuff, we’ll have our usual open stream. We’re free 24/7 and remain committed to music as opposed to profit.

Derek & The Dominos Live, NOT The Album of The Week, and What’s In A Name? Friday, June 4, 2021

Good Morning, Musicologists! It’s Friday once again and we are giving you something old and something new, and commemmorating a great album release today.

Here’s today’s line-up:

11:00 a.m. Derek & The Dominos Live at The Fillmore East, New York City, October 23, 1970 NEW!

On October 23 and 24, 1970, Derek & The Dominos played two shows at the famed Fillmore East. We have the first night’s performance here today.

3:00 p.m. NOT The Album of The Week: Sargeant Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band NEW!

This is not a regular feature of our station, but we do it once in a while when the occasion calls for it. Today, we are running this in commemoration of the release of one of the most incredible albums of all time, Sargeant Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band. It was released fifty-four years ago on June 2, 1967.

This was The Beatles’ eighth studio album, and was the first where the track listing was the same on both the US and UK version. It was the first album to have all of the lyrics printed on the cover. Musicologists recognize this album as the first concept album ever. The album spent 27 weeks at the top of the UK charts, and 15 on top of the US charts.

7:00 p.m. Deb’s Stream: What’s In A Name, Various Artists

One of our most popular playlists is up later this evening, What’s In A Name. Songs with names in either the title or the lyrics. You’ll hear The Beatles, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Simon & Garfunkel, Fleetwood Mac, The Velvet Underground, The Band, The Kinks, Neil Diamond, The Rolling Stones, The Beach Boys, and many more.

We have a great line up today sprinkled throughout all of our great Open Stream, and you should take advantage of that if you haven’t spent time listening in yet. We are totally free and run 24/7.

Derek & The Dominos Live, Emmylou Harris Rarities, and A Repeat of Yesterday’s Live Wildflowers, Monday, October 19, 2020

Good Morning, Musicologists! Here’s today’s funky mix of music for your listening pleasure, including a repeat performance of yesterday’s unveiling of the live Wildflowers songs.

Eric Clapton during the Derek & The Dominos phase.

Here’s your week-opening line-up:

12:00 p.m. Derek & The Dominos Live at The Fillmore East, October 23 & 24, 1970

Derek & The Dominos, for those not in the know, is a British blues-rock band populated by Eric Clapton, Bobby Whitlock, Carl Radle & Jim Gordon. Their live recordings come from two nights at The Fillmore East. If we were using the term ‘supergroup’ back in the day, this just might be one.

5:00 p.m. Emmylou Harris: Rare Tracks & Forgotten Gems

Here are some tunes you may have forgotten that Emmylou Harris did, some you didn’t know she did, and others she has done with her contemporaries. In short, it’s a great little playlist.

8:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Wildflowers & All The Rest by Tom Petty REPLAY!

A replay of yesterday’s live versions of Wildflowers songs as chosen by Tom Petty’s family and bandmates. These may not be as much a revelation as the upcoming selections will be, but they certainly reflect a band at the top of its game and having a great fucking time on stage. And isn’t that why we love live music?

People, you need to get with the program. Seriously. We’re not going away, so you might as well just give in and pull up a tab. Because, hell, it doesn’t cost you anything and we run all day and night. We are your escape in the middle of this pestilence. Get your musical shit together.

janis-joplin

Here’s your Friday line-up:

12:00 p.m.   Janis Joplin: Live at The Fillmore East (1969)    NEW!

Janis was…Janis. She had a powerful voice, and a powerful stage presence. Although her career was tragically short, she was one of the most influential singer-songwriters of her generation. She has also achieved legend status in subsequent generations. There’s a reason for that when it happens.

5:00 p.m.    Instrumental Surf Anthology, Volume 1: Various Artists

We replay our first surf playlist from last weekend to get the juices flowing. On Saturday, you are introduced to the Blue Stingrays! Who are those guys? You’ll have to check the blog to find out!
