Here’s your line-up:
12:00 p.m. Joni Mitchell Live at Club 47, Cambridge, MA
The year was 1968, and Club 47 was the place. We remember Linda Ronstadt playing there and getting roast beef sandwiches at Elsie’s in Harvard Square. Others also launched their careers there, like Bonnie Raitt. This turn was for Joni.

The music of New Orleans is as eclectic as its people. We’ve got everything in this playlist — jazz, brass, cajun, zydeco.

Singing and playing Da Blues down in New Orleans, Louisiana!

Released in 1988, and thus began a magical journey indeed for all of us with the Wilburys: Spike (George Harrison), Clayton (Jeff Lynne), Muddy (Tom Petty), Boo (Bob Dylan) and Lefty Jr. (Roy Orbison; named posthumously). There has not been another supergroup like it. There may not ever be.
This week begins a musical experience that extends far beyond the Mardi Gras, so be sure to tune us in!
