Here’s Today’s Lesson From the College of Rock N’ Roll Knowledge: 11/19/2020

Good Morning from The College of Rock n’ Roll Knowledge. It’s another busy day in musical history, as you will see.

Tom Petty & Dave Grohl on stage during the Heartbreaker’s 30th Anniversary Tour.

Here’s today’s lesson plan:

November 19, 1955: Carl Perkins records Blue Suede Shoes at Sun Studios in Memphis. It will be Perkins’ biggest hit, reaching #2 on Billboard.

November 19, 1966: The Supremes enjoy their eighth US #1 hit with You Keep Me Hangin’ On.

November 19, 1971: B.B. King celebrates his 25th year in music by kicking off a European tour in London.

November 19, 1973: Led Zeppelin begins recording demos for their album, Physical Graffiti.

Meanwhile, Bob Dylan releases his 13th studio album, simply called Dylan.

November 19, 1975: The J. Geils Band records Blow Your Face Out (a fucking great album) at Cobo Hall in Detroit.

November 19, 1976: Van Morrison’s Moondance album receives a Gold Record. The album spawns two hits. In addition to the title track, Into The Mystic is released.

November 19, 1982: Led Zeppelin releases its final studio album, Coda, which is a collection of unused tracks written before drummer John Bonham’s death in 1980.

November 19, 1983: Tom Evans of Badfinger died at the age of 36. Like his and mate, Pete Ham, Evans also hanged himself. The story of what record company and manager greed and avarice did to Badfinger’s career is one that should be told. We will touch on that in the blog sometime.

November 19, 1994: Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers perform You Don’t Know How It Feels and Honeybee on Saturday Night Live, with Dave Grohl of Nirvana and The Foo Fighters on drums.

November 19, 1995: Bruce Springsteen’s thirteenth album, The Ghost of Tom Joad, is released.

A 60-track album called Beatles Anthology I is released and sets a single-day sales record of 450,000 units.

That’s it, children. Take notes. There’ll be a quiz later (just kidding).

BLUES WEEK continues! Johnny Winter at The Bottom Line, The J. Geils Band in The Spotlight, and our Albert King AOW, Tuesday, September 22, 2020

We have da blues all week long here from The Mermaid Lounge. We’ve got an interesting selection for you today, to say the least.

Johnny Winter was the real deal, people.

Here’s today’s high-energy line-up:

11:00 a.m. Johnny Winter Live at The Bottom Line, New York, September 5, 1978

Johnny Winter was the real deal, but perhaps not in the traditional sense. He is known for his distinctive blues-rock style, and his live performances of the late 60s and the 70s are legendary. He also produced three Grammy award-winning albums for blues legend Muddy Waters. Today we have him live at The Bottom Line.

3:00 p.m. Album of the Week: Born Under a Bad Sign by Albert King

If you missed the first airing on Sunday, here’s another opportunity to hear our Album of The Week.

7:00 p.m. In the Spotlight: The J. Geils Band

Some purists may turn their nose up at this selection, but that’s why I run the station. No matter what they tell you, this was Boston’s original party band, and they were once known as the J. Geils Blues Band before they made their crossover. No matter, they were the masters of blues rock, and when they were on stage, there was nobody like them.

It’s a day, isn’t it? So, why not tune us in. Doesn’t matter what time you choose…unless, of course, you want to hear our programming. Otherwise, we run 24/7, For free.
