Charles T. Wilbury, Jr. Channels Tom Petty; Badfinger in the Spotlight; and Those Echoes, Monday, October 14, 2019

Good Morning, Ungovernables! The Petty Party continues as Charlie T. Wilbury, Jr., channels his mate, Tom Petty.

Petty & Jakob Dylan

Here’s your line-up for Indigenous People’s Day (fuck Christopher Columbus, the genocidal maniac):

11:00 a.m.     In the Spotlight: The Music of Badfinger

The one, true, bona fide rock act signed by the Beatles to Apple Records. This is an underrated, underplayed monster of a band.

2:00 p.m.        Echoes From the Canyon

The play list celebrating the pioneers of the California sound. Features The Mamas & The Papas, The Byrds, The Doors, Joni Mitchell, Stephen Stills, The Beach Boys, and many others.

6:00 p.m.        Tom Petty: Subdued and Underappreciated

In my humble opinion, Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers were the finest rock n’rollers of their generation. But that isn’t all they were, especially due to the songwriting talent of Tom Petty. This hefty playlist features a quieter, gentler, more introspective Petty, one that is often underappreciated by the masses. Take a pill and chill. Features songs from the Heartbreakers, Mudcrutch, the Traveling Wilburys, and from Tom’s solo career.

Open streaming all night long after!
