Highway 61 Revisited

Saturday 8am-12pm


Highway 61 Revisited brings back the spirit of the Sixties and Seventies when folk-rock and protest music ruled the airwaves.

The show includes classic folk music and a smattering of classic rock from that era, including "hits" and less-familiar tracks from groups such as the Byrds and Buffalo Springfield.

The singer/songwriter genre is defined by such diverse artists from Jackson Browne to Gordon Lightfoot. Less-remembered lights such as P.F. Sloan and Tim Buckley are also tapped for the influence they left behind. We also includes folk and folk-rock from outside the US with gems from Fairport Convention and Steeleye Span, to name but two.

Finally, the program also showcases covers of the music from that era by contemporary and local artists, including Bonnie Raitt, Richard Thompson, Emmylou Harris, Nanci Griffith, and Patty Larkin. And, of course, there is always plenty of music from the master himself, Bob Dylan!
