Friday 383


Hello my friends, wherever you are, whatever you’re doing, welcome back to Friday Music. First let me say what an outstanding show we all got to hear last week done by our executive producer Collin McCormack. Like the man said, tasty tunes served up for your enjoyment. It was a whole new experience to be a listener of the show without knowing what was coming next, and I absolutely loved it. So Collin, thank you again.
I hope that y’all are staying safe and healthy as we meander our way through this pandemic. Whatever you’re doing to keep yourself healthy, keep doing it and we’ll be right here for you every Friday to launch the mothership into a musical orbit for your edification. I’d like to start off start off with a sweet piece by a sweet singer who’s voice I just love and because we inch are way closer to spring every day I hope this song gets you yearning for that time of year. From 1958, this is Blossom Dearie and Springtime In New York. Collin, you know what to do.
Sara Bareilles Live at the
Variety with an outstanding cover of Elton John’s Goodbye Yellow Brick Road. Before Sara was Elle King with Good Thing Gone. An in a studio performance at Audiotree was Dustbowl Revival with Only One and Blossom Dearie launched show 383 with Springtime In New York. Four lovely voices of ladies to start our show off today. What could set number two bring us? Well, How’s about we take a little trip back to the year 1972 and we give a listen to Delaney and Bonnie havin’ at it on Sound Of The City.
That my friends was Temper Trap, with Sweet Disposition from their 2009 album, Conditions. Before Temper Trap was Thievery Corporation with Music To Make You Stagger, and Delaney and Bonnie got us started with, Sound Of The City.
Lookee here, we’re already at set number three of Friday Music. What say you to dropping into a new orbit with three iconic artist performing together under the name The Dukes Of September. Donald Fagen, Michael McDonald, and Boz Scaggs all playing together on Steely Dan’s Pretzel Logic.
The Wood Brothers, live. That was Tried & Tempted. Before the Wood Brothers, was Bill Frisell from his album, Guitar In The Space Age with his rendition of a golden oldie titled Rebel Rouser. Before Bill a sweet cover by Billy Swan of Elvis Presley’s Don’t Be Cruel. And before Billy we began with The Dukes Of September on their live performance of Pretzel Logic.
Well there you have it my friends, show 383 of Friday Music and I must tell you it’s good to be back in the saddle with you. So until next time as always remember to be safe, be kind and may all your Fridays be filled with music. I’m your host for Friday Music, Tim McCormack and the show is executively produced brilliantly from Northern California by Collin McCormack. We close out this week show with a cut by Creedence Clearwater Revival, from 1968. Susie Q.

So without any further ado, I now turn this show over to my nephew, and friend, Collin McCormack. Collin, take the con,

Thank you Tim and thank you Friday Music Group listeners for indulging me today.
Lets settle here in orbit for awhile,
Above the clouds,
Happily surrounded by planets and stars,
And take the time to appreciate that,
No matter what we face,
Pain, Pandemic, Death,
Our planet just keeps turning and turning and turning.

So from this vantage, lets leave it all down there and for the next hour,
Let it turn,

Well, My dear listeners, it is the time now when we begin our approach and return you to your space on this little blue dot.
Thank you for joining us today and being part of our Friday Music Group.

I hope you found something new to fall in love with today on our musical orbit.

Now, in order as they appeared:

Please stay tuned for Liane La Havas who will guide us home.
