Here we are at midweek with an expanded ‘Ladies Day Out’ EP, so the women are even more large and in charge today. Later, we give Warren Zevon the stage for the second time as our featured Singer-Songwriter.
Here’s your midweek lineup:
10:00 a.m. Ladies Day Out: Various Artists UPDATED!
We’ve undertaken a modest update with our all-women EP here by adding Ellen McIlwaine, Christine McVie, and some reggae artists like Rita Marley, Marcia Griffiths, and Judy Mowatt (also known as the I-Threes). There will be another update coming. Other artists you will hear include Linda Ronstadt, Bonnie Raitt, Carly Simon, Emmylou Harris, Petula Clark, Laura Nyro, Cilla Black, Irma Thomas, Aretha Franklin, Joni Mitchell, Joan Baez, Etta James, Janis Joplin, Carole King, Maria Muldaur, Lucinda Williams, Rosanne Cash, Eva Cassidy, Wendy Waldman, Shawn Colvin, The Ronettes, Diana Ross & The Supremes, Gladys Knight & The Pips, Norah Jones, Phoebe Snow, Nicolette Larson, Sheryl Crow, Valerie Carter, Dolly Parton, Dusty Springfield and more!
7:00 p.m. Singer-Songwriter Series: The Music of Warren Zevon
Warren Zevon gets the stage for the second time as this week’s featured Singer-Songwriter in our series. Linda Ronstadt recognized his immense songwriting talents by recording Carmelita and Poor Poor Pitiful Me, Hasten Down The Wind and Mohammed’s Radio. (I love them all but I think Mohammed’s Radio is brilliant.) Warren Zevon also had a great solo career, starting off with his breakthrough album, Excitable Boy, one of our all-time favorites. Tune him in.
Yeah, after today, we’re on the downslide to the weekend and everything gets better from here. Before, in between, and after we have The Music Mermaid at the helm. She has impeccable taste in music, as you well know by now.
