Good morning, musicologists! We close out the month in style with music from the British Invasion and beyond, this week’s singer-songwriter, and the Wilburys bringing up the rear!
Here’s your midweek lineup:
9:00 a.m. The British Are Coming: Various Artists
We celebrate the end of the month with music from across the pond. You’ll hear The Beatles (of course), The Who, Dave Mason, Electric Light Orchestra, Petula Clark, The Zombies, The Hollies, Dusty Springfield, Small Faces, Led Zeppelin, Queen, The Kinks, 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, Yes, The Animals, Manfred Mann’s Earth Band, The Spencer Davis Group, Cream, Donovan, The Rolling Stones and more!
4:00 p.m. Singer-Songwriter Series: The Music of Guy Clark
The late, great Guy Clark takes his second spin as our featured singer-songwriter for the week. I have a hard time picking a favorite from this guy but Texas1947 is pretty spectacular.
8:00 p.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of The Traveling Wilburys
They were the greatest supergroup ever. There may never be another like them. They were just five guys who became friends, hung out, and played music together. That’s how the legend of the Wilburys began. Tonight we put them In the Spotlight where they belong.
We are on 24/7. Before, in between and after our programs, The Music Mermaid treats you to our wide Open Stream of 27,000 songs. We’re totally free of charge and we do not run any commercial advertising. Ever. Give us a whirl.
