*Remember Harry Shearer? Former SNL cast member and more notably as an actor in all those entertaining Christopher Guest/Michael McKean movies like...This Is Spinal Tap and A Mighty Wind. Well, he is the co-founder of Twanky Records with his wife, 26 years his junior. His wife is a great musician and we will play a track from her 10th studio album. Who is the artist?
*This popular group with a rather large presence in the ITG Radio library shares a song about a fallen people. It is an analogy to indulgent lifestyles and self-destructive behavior, a theme that also shows up in another of their songs...both with Biblical significance. The song and the album came out in 1980 and it would be 20 years before we enjoyed another album from this band. Name the band...extra credit for the tune...
*We will venture into an early album by these artists...one that was produced by Todd Rundgren. And it sounds Rundgren-like due to the fact that his band, Utopia contributed on this collection of tracks. This album marked the group's departure from 'blue-eyed soul' to more of a 'rock' mode. Name the group.
*We'll venture into this artist's 12th and final album. He began recording the album shortly after he was diagnosed with inoperable pleural mesothelioma and it was released just 2 weeks prior to his passing in 2003.
The track is a cover of great Dylan song and you'll see why it really hits home. Name the artist and the song if you can....
