Hey Baby, it's the 4th of July. So said Mr. Dave Alvin. It was fun smearing the airwaves with tunes on this holiday edition of Freewheelin'. And, it was great to hear from so many people who don't usually get to listen to the show live due to work, school, or other commitments. Ah, holidays, I love the way they bring people together.
Rocked it out a little this afternoon while flying solo. I can’t get enough of the new release by The Blasters. You’re gonna dig it.
Our “We Hope You’re Ready For Flo & Eddie” segment featured some surf and rock by The Turtles, Flo & Eddie, and Springsteen’s “Hungry Heart” (with Flo & Eddie providing backup vocals).
All over the board this afternoon, from "We Hope You're Ready for Flo & Eddie" to Commander Cody & His Lost Planet Airmen, new Blasters, BR5-49, JD McPherson, Ramsay Midwood, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, to Muddy Waters and new releases by Little Feat and Omar & The Howlers. You get the picture?
