It’s Another Kick-Ass Saturday With The Laurel Canyon Crowd, Joan Baez, Elvis’ Birthday Playlist, and Live Dead, on January 9, 2021

Good Morning, Music Lovers! Saturday is our big day on the programming scale but, in spite of that, our musical day remains mostly Open Stream.

The Grateful Dead. The ultimate jam band at the closing of Winterland.

Here’s today’s line-up:

11:00 a.m. Echoes From The Canyon: Various Artists

It was all happening in the canyon back in the day. They were all groovin’ together, feeding off each other, and it produced some of the best damned sounds in the history of popular music. They inspired people like Jakob Dylan and Tom Petty. This playlist is about just over 2.5 hours and features The Mamas & The Papas, The Byrds, Buffalo Springfield, The Doors, Joni Mitchell, Jackson Browne, and more!

3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Joan Baez by Joan Baez

The final airing of Joan Baez’s brillian debut album, recorded when she was just nineteen. Get in on it now. It will be gone tomorrow when you wake up!

7:00 p.m. Elvis Presley: The Sun Sessions

We’re celebrating Elvis Presley’s birthday a day late. That’s usually how it goes around here. We do our best, but my multiple personalities have their limits. Today, we’re playing his songs from The Sun Sessions, recorded at Sun Studios during 1954 and 1955. It’s produced by Sam Phillips, owner of Sun Records, who gave Elvis his start, and includes one of the greatest (and some people argue, the first) rock n’ roll songs ever, That’s All Right. Happy Birthday, Elvis.

10:00 p.m. Live Dead! The Grateful Dead Live at Winterland, October 22, 1978 NEW!

We made it through last year for 52 weeks with no repeats. And we intend to attempt the same here. Let’s face it. It should not be difficult. The Dead played Winterland alone 48 times. This is just one of them. Enjoy, Deadheads.

Saturdays are always a fucking great day to tune us in. Why don’t you give it a shot? We are free. No credit card or private info required. No advertising accepted. No endless DJ chatter. You have no idea what you are missing.

11:00 a.m.   The Best of The Summer of Love! Sargeant Pepper’s Lonely Heart’s Club Band  by The Beatles

Probably the most iconic album released during the Summer of Love phase was this brilliant effort by The Beatles. They would follow this up later with Magical Mystery Tour, but this one was a tough act to follow.

3:00 p.m.     Elvis Presley: The Sun Sessions   NEW!

Elvis Aaron Presley, known simply as Elvis, passed away at Graceland 43 years ago yesterday. Elvis was the inspiration for many of the musicians we are celebrating on this radio station. And that’s why we celebrate him today.

7:00 p.m.     The Summer of Love Playlist, Volume 1

There were many players during the Summer of Love, and many may not make it to the spotlight. Nevertheless, they gave us some great music. Hear The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Cream, Scott McKenzie, The Strawberry Alarm Clock, The Association, Donovan, Marvin Gaye, The Lovin’ Spoonful, Paul Revere & The Raiders, The Electric Prunes, Procol Harum, and many more!

Come on, people. What are you waiting for? Tune us in today. It won’t cost you a penny, and we won’t smother you with advertising.
