We want to pay our respects to the late great Tom Petty……so it’s Damn The Torpedoes and full trib ahead Into The Great Wide Open. Click the BVD/Jiveradio tribute to TP and the Heartbreakers and their great great body of rockin’ tunes.
It’s a two-hour show of nothing but good, good stuff, and your chance to go one-on-one with the wonderful musical legacy of The Great Gainesville Ghost, whose heart broke for good last Monday, just a week after he finished the 40th Anniversary Tour with his band.
It was just last week…..9-3-17…..that walter becker, the bassist, guitarist and half of the songwriting team for Steely Dan, moseyed on down the line. I’ve spent the last week listening to their albums, and good gawd what a band. their 7 album run, from CANT BUY A THRILL in ’72 to GAUCHO in ’80 is simply superb. what a thrilling and remarkable legacy. And jesus, I don’t want to forget their AMAZING return album….Two Against Nature, which they put out 20 years after Gaucho, and it won the grammy for Album of the Year. as well it should have. i spent last night listening to it….under properly approved conditions, of course…. you know, how the cuervo gold and the fine colombian make tonight a wonderful thing, right? what a terrific album! TAN was nothing less than a revelation. 20 years later, and they popped out an album that’s every bit as good as The Royal Scam and Gaucho.
Ok, fokes, you knew it had to get done, and the Jive Radio Trib to Chuck Berry is now ready to reel and rock. so check it on out and let your bones and brain remember where so much of this stuff came from! an 84 minute ride in a big coffee-colored cadillac with Maybellene, Nadine, Carol, Queenie, and Johnny B. Goode through the Promised Land…….but really, with No Particular Place To Go!
