Tom Snyder & Little Richard

With the deaths of Little Richard last weekend and Tom Snyder in 2007, it’s delightful to look back at this perfect amalgam of a great broadcaster and a great entertainer, from a 1997 broadcast of “The Late Late Show.”

POTD: Sheryl Crow

Here’s Crow with a quarantine version of the best song I’ve ever heard about day drinking. Keep your eye on the guy playing the lap steel guitar.

POTD: “Bolero”

For the Picture Of The Day, here’s a sheltered-at-home version of Ravel’s “Bolero” performed recently by the members of the New York Philharmonic. If you close your eyes, you can see Bo Derek.

POTD: Remembering John Prine

For the Picture Of The Day, in honor of the singer/songwriter who died of coronavirus yesterday at 73, here he is performing his most well-known song (made famous by Bonnie Raitt), “Angel From Montgomery.”

POTD: “Lean On Me”

This Picture Of The Day serves a dual purpose. One is to remember Bill Withers, who died this week. The other is to provide a message of unity for a time when we’re forced to stay apart.
