Roger Hodgson - Give A Little Bit - Live from the MMaRchives

Rodger Hodgson of Supertramp provides today's Live from the MMaRchives pick with a neat version of "Give A Little Bit". It's from an MMaRchive Session with Pierre Robert that took place on November 20th, 2012. Later that night Roger performed at the Keswick Theatre, as part of his “Breakfast In America” world tour.  

Rival Sons - Open My Eyes - Live from the MMaRchives

Rival Sons paid a visit to the Preston & Steve Show on August 19th, 2016. Jay Buchanan's vocals on the hit "Open My Eyes" are already impressive, but mix in the elements of live radio and early morning hours, and our jaws were on the floor by the end of this performance! We couldn't believe how…

Stevie Ray Vaughan - Pride and Joy - Live from the MMaRchives

Ripley Music Hall was the place to be on South Street in the 80s. The club, run by promoter-turned-restaurateur Stephen Starr, hosted acts of all genres, including blues rocker Stevie Ray Vaughan on October 20th, 1983. MMR's morning host at the time was John DeBella, and you'll hear him introduce SRV & Double Trouble in today's…

The Offspring - Come Out and Play - Live from the MMaRchives

On the auspicious date of 08/08/08, Pierre Robert welcomed The Offspring to our studios for an MMaRchive Session. The band had never done a stripped-down set like this one before, but they enjoyed it so much that they went on to do many more acoustic performances. "Come Out And Play" is one of the songs…

Corey Taylor - You Got Lucky - Live from the MMaRchives

We’ve spoken with Corey Taylor many times on MMR, talking about his various musical projects (Slipknot, Stone Sour) and books (he's published four so far), but this is the only time he brought a guitar with him to our studios. Jaxon hosted the MMaRchive Session on May 4th, 2011, and later that evening Stone Sour…

Bonnie Raitt - Blender Blues - Live from the MMaRchives

Today's Live from the MMaRchives pick was inspired by a kitchen appliance. It's true! Bonnie Raitt is known for her soulful, moving voice, but she has a little fun with "Blender Blues", done live at the Rainbow Room at Sigma Sound Studios. Gene Shay was your host for this session on February 22nd, 1972.

America - A Horse With No Name - Live from the MMaRchives

In the early 70s, the voices you may have heard on the WMMR airwaves include Ed Sciaky, Michael Tearson, and David Dye, to name a few... These were your hosts for the sessions that the station broadcast live from Sigma Sound Studios in Philadelphia. One of these sessions was with folk trio America in February…

Jackson Browne - Take It Easy - Live from the MMaRchives

One of the shows that WMMR broadcast live from the Main Point in Bryn Mawr is Jackson Browne on September 7th, 1975. Though “Take It Easy” was first released by the Eagles, it was co-written by Glenn Frey and Jackson Browne. Since Browne's single arrived later, the Eagles' take on the song is more widely…
