* We'll play a song from an artist who spent years...decades if you will, not saying anything about his personal life...that is until this 1988 album was released. Born in Los Angeles we'll take a bit of a trip (a train ride actually) with him to the deep south and the place where his mother hailed from originally. Name the artist and extra credit for the name of the song...
*A beautiful voice, a remarkable gift for phrasing and a restless creative spirit, this artist had a profound impact on contemporary music. Mentored by Gram Parsons, she made her mark on both country and rock. Kicking around as a folk singer originally on the east coast, she was playing a folk club in Washington, DC when Chris Hillman saw her perform and recommended her to his former bandmate, Parsons. Name the artist...
*Glenn Frey had an idea for his friend on this particular song. He recommended that guitarist, Drew Abbot should play along with the piano solo. Frey then went out and did the background vocals with his buddy. The lyrics contained a line that bothered the artist because of the grammar, but because everyone else loved it...he left the line in the track. The song was the title track for this artist's album in 1980. Name the artist and extra credit for the name of the song.
*We'll play a song that was written for a 1978 movie, which actually takes place at a radio station and was the precursor to the television series, WKRP in Cincinnati. (Les Nessman fans unite) Name the band that wrote and actually performed the song in the movie. Extra credit for the name of the song...
