Well, are you ready for the country? Because we are. We’re talking about both real country and the pioneers who hung out in Laurel Canyon and fused country and rock together. And that’s just the beginning today.
Here’s today’s musical landscape:

8:00 p.m. Neil Young & The International Harvesters Live at The Moody Theater, Austin City Limits, September 25, 1984
Neil Young has had many musical phases during his long career, and tonight we’ve got his country phase with a great Nashville-based band, The International Harvesters. A lot of critics panned Young’s musical phases but that’s because they like to button-hole performers into a genre, much the same way the “experts” told Linda Ronstadt that her career would be ruined if she sang mariachi music (that was bullshit; just the opposite happened). We here love Neil Young’s phases. It adds to his mystique.
We are here 24/7 and totally free of charge, folks. It’s all about the music, not the money. We don’t accept commercial advertising either, another bonus of joining our international community of listeners.
