Pierre’s Vinyl Cut: Every afternoon around 2:15ish, Pierre Robert sneaks down to WMMR’s Studio R, the only one left with a working record player, to play a song (or two or three) on vinyl. Tune in to hear the beautiful crackle of the record and the thrilling tale Pierre shares about the artist.
Today's vinyl cut album is 'The River' from Bruce Springsteen in honor of him kicking off the tour tomorrow with the E Street Band in Tampa. The full band will be here in Philly, March 16th at The Big Joint. I played 'Out in the Street' & 'Cadillac Ranch'. Looking at the insert reminds me of Casey, Jacky & Kyle's cross country road trip last year!
Some of the lyrics for today's vinyl cut, Truckin', were inspired by an event that happened today in 1970. Every member of the Grateful Dead except for Pigpen, was arrested for possession of Marijuana in New Orleans. Shocking!
Today we celebrated the birth of Tom Keifer of Cinderella with 'Night Songs' for our vinyl cut!
Today we played the Eagles 'Live From the Forum MMXVIII' while giving away bricks or blocks or something like that for tickets to see our boys in blue this weekend.
Today, I played this great import of Måneskin's 'Supermodel' 45 that Brent Porche had brought in for us to give a spin.
Today played the Beatles "Yellow Submarine" on vinyl. The exact release date of the album's release varies from source to source, so we played it on PST [Pierre Standard Time] to celebrate it's 54th anniversary.
On this day in 1987, Slippery When Wet from the amazing Bon Jovi was at #1 on the charts. MMR played it on vinyl then, when it was new ,and we are still playing it (even on vinyl) today!
All 10 min of Bowie's "Station to Station" on vinyl today, to help wrap up Philly Loves Bowie Week. Check out the way-cool turntable watch Brent Porche gave to me a few years ago!
For no reason other than a jolt of musical energy, AC/DC "Touch Too Much" from Highway to Hell.
Celebrating co-founder of Steely Dan, Donald Fagan's 75th birthday today on vinyl. Tough choice with so many songs but I went with "My Old School" and "Reelin' In The Years," great fun!
