Good Morning, Musicologists! We have some great programming for you today as we approach our first Open Stream day in a while (tomorrow).
Here’s today’s line-up:
11:00 a.m. In The Spotlight: The Music of George Harrison
Today we give you the musical genius of George Harrison as a member of The Beatles, as a solo artist, and as the infamous Nelson Wilbury. The Traveling Wilburys, the greatest Supergroup of all time, was Harrison’s brainchild. They made some of the best music on the planet.
3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Standing in The Doorway by Chrissie Hynde
While Eric Clapton and Van Morrison whined over being locked down (and continue to whine; a characteristic I dislike in people), Chrissie Hynde made it count. This is a fantastic album of lesser-known Bob Dylan covers. Right now it’s our official Album of the Year.
7:00 p.m. The Kinks Live at The Palladium, New York, December 31, 1980
The battling Davies brothers also shared the spotlight in one of the finest rock n’ roll bands in history. Tonight we have some live Kinks for you. It’s been a while since we aired this one.
Ho Hum. Here we go again. Tune us in. Yadda Yadda Yadda. Can’t say it enough. We’re free. We ask for nothing (an unusual thing these days). And we give you some of the best music from the best era on the planet.
