After a couple of months of not listening to podcasts, here are three episodes I enjoyed recently and recommend to you.
Picture Of The Day: Despite playing them thousands of times during the first half of my radio career, I was never a Led Zeppelin fan. Still, I got a kick out of these kids’ reactions.
Another concert tour cancelled due to concerns about COVID-19: John Fogerty won’t perform at The Fabulous Fox in St. Louis on July 12th. But here he is doing a CCR classic at home with his family.
For today’s Picture Of The Day, a bunch of sheltering-at-home choral singers from Vancouver, Canada, perform a Billy Joel classic, with lyrics customized for the coronavirus crisis.
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.”
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.
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.
You probably know the versions by Jackie Wilson and Rita Coolidge, but have you seen it played by the Ukulele Orchestra?
