Dale Hood Beautiful Noise Thursday @ 6pm
The movie soundtrack theme from last weeks Beautiful Noise show inspired many listeners to comment as they recollected classic movie scenes and songs that made them memorable.
From Tom Cruise sliding across the big screen and into our hearts, in his underwear lip synching to Seger’s Old Time Rock and Roll to Aretha Franklin in The Blues Brother’s Movie also lip synching. Think ( a little known fact ) in the Diner dance scene.
With popcorn and drink in hand, everyone seemed to have had a good time!!

Marshall Tucker Band
While the band was discussing possible band names one evening in an old warehouse, that they had rented for rehearsal space, someone noticed that the warehouse's door key had the name "Marshall Tucker" inscribed on it, and suggested they call themselves "The Marshall Tucker Band," not realizing it referred to an actual person.
Later it came to light that Marshall Tucker was a blind piano tuner who had tuned a piano in that rented space before the band, and his name was inscribed on the key.
In England, in the late 1960’s, band names were often supplied by their booking agent's staff.
One of whom, a history enthusiast, eventually christened the band Jethro Tull, after the 18th-century agriculturist.
The name stuck because they happened to be using it the first time a club manager liked their show enough to invite them to return.
Originally the band was known as The One Percent.
In 1969, lead singer Ronnie Van Zant sought a new name after growing tired of taunts from audiences that the band had "1% talent".
The group settled on Leonard Skinnerd, which was in a mocking tribute to their P.E. teacher Leonard Skinner.
Skinner was notorious for strictly enforcing the school's policy against boys having long hair.
Despite their high school acrimony, the band developed a friendlier relationship with Skinner and in later years and invited him to introduce them at a concert in the Jacksonville Memorial Coliseum.
Craig Looney Looney’s Tunes Sunday @ 6:30pm
Greetings...thanks for joining me for this show...
Great start with Taj Mahal and Keb Mo creating the vibe carefully taken forward by The Traveling Wilburys and Argent. Isn't music a blast?
All 4 segments exceptional, with a John Prine, 'Then and Later' followed by a Battle of the Bands where Linda Ronstadt comfortably defeated Roy Orbison...both singing the classic, Blue Bayou. The Police and Sting's Message In A Bottle was covered brilliantly by John Mayer in the 'Cover Me Up. Our Sing Along was Build Me Up Buttercup by The Foundations & a footnote reference to There's Something About Mary...
Had an absolutely chill Supergroup Deconstruction as The Byrds were broken down to their individual artist's solo catalogues and brought it all home with the classic Byrds track, My Back Pages. Songs by Roger McGuinn, Chris Hillman, David Crosby, Gene Clark and toss in a Gram Parsons cut...preceded. If you didn't know it...The Byrds were a 'Supergroup'!
Sunday evening....your Looney's Tunes reservation is assured....for some incredible music entertainment
