The concert also featured the first live performance of "Thunder Road", under its earlier title, "Wings for Wheels." The concert was given as a benefit, broadcast over WMMR, and hosted by deejay Ed Sciaky.

Get Back Jo Jo - The Beatles Get Back album
My brother loves music the same way we love to breath. Next to his family music is his life and it fuels his soul. One of my brother's great gifts is his ability to write about and convey his excitement and love of a new song, album or band he's just discovered or rediscovered. After reading one of Stephen's emails you immediately want to listen to the attached song as loud as you can.
Here's example of a recent music email Stephen sent me and his friend Nick. This time his subject is the Beatles.
Thanks, Stephen. As usual you're spot on and this is a great mix but I have to say I'm a sucker for "Teddy Boy." I've always loved that song.

"Listen to the Stories"
Charlie Parker used to hang out in Charlie's Tavern, a musician's bar in midtown New York. To the dismay of his acolytes, he liked to play country records on the jukebox. There was reluctance to question the taste of mighty Bird, but finally a brave jazzman asked him. "How can you stand that stuff?" Bird looked at him and said, "The stories, man. Listen to the stories!" --Nat Hentoff, Listen To The StoriesIf you have the time, take a moment and listen to Patsy Cline tell a story.
