Question of the Day: Is the Weather Really Getting Worse?

On this day in 1950 the "Storm Of The Century" tore through the Eastern US. A Category 5 by today's standards, this monster cyclone--The Great Appalachian Storm--brought Hurricane force winds to the mountains of New England and Sub-zero temperatures to the deep South.

Summon up some stormy song suggestions as we splash through this wet windy and warm late November morning...wondering if weather will be the most changeable and troubling aspect of our collective future.

Here's what we played:

"Blizzard of '77" - Nada Surf

"Telephone Road" - Rodney Crowell

"Stormy Monday Blues" - Allman Brothers Band

"Stormy Weather" - Lena Horne

On this day in 1938, Orson Wells scared the pants off of America with a radio show. On this anniversary of the "War of the Worlds" broadcast,  we're remembering great hoaxes. Were you ever fooled by one? Tell us about it and connect a cool song to it. 

Here's what we played: 

"Glass Onion" - the Beatles 

"1999" - Prince

"Atlantis" - Donovan 

"Man on the Moon" - R.E.M.

"Over the Rainbow" - Judy Garland

Question of the Day: Say Wha?

by Morning Show
A A
Let's remember Cafe Wha founder Manny Roth, who has died at 95, with classic club moments you may have witnessed (or wished you did!)

Manny Roth, founder of the Greenwich Village club Cafe Wha has died at 95.  Manny, who was also David Lee Roth's uncle, opened the MacDougal Street basement venue in 1959.  By 1961, 20 year old Bob Dylan was knocking at the door.  Jimi Hendrix, Bruce Springsteen, Woody Allen and Richard Pryor would soon follow.  Countless would-be stars gave it their best shot on the tiny stage, and even the re-formed Van Halen jammed at the storied venue.

Leave your suggestions below and we'll spin a set after 9AM.

Here's what we played:

Bob Dylan "Talkin' New York"

Jimi Hendrix "Hey Joe"

The Velvet Underground "Sunday Morning"

Cat Mother & The All Night Newsboys "Good Old Rock 'n' Roll"
