Question of the Day: That Day I'll Always Remember

by Corny O'Connell

In their 1972 hit "Papa Was a Rollin' Stone" The Temptations sang, It was the 3rd of September, That day I'll always remember. Since that's today's date, we're trying to remember other songs that mention a date of the year. Mark them in the comments below and we'll schedule a set after 9am.

Here's what we played:

Morphine "Radar" March 4th 1982

The Band "The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down" May the 10th

Golden Smog "5-22-02" 5-22-02

Anthony D'Amato - FUV Live - 2014

by Alisa Ali

Self-described as "Folk and Roll," Anthony D’Amato stepped into the music scene in 2010 with his debut album, Down Wires. He recorded the songs himself in his college dorm room with a single microphone and self-released the album. Just a few years later, he has certainly come a long way. His latest album, The Shipwreck From The Shore, was recorded in a professional studio with the help of producer Sam Kassirer (Josh Ritter, Langhorne Slim, David Wax Museum) and it's out today on a major label (New West).  

Leon Redbone - Sunday Breakfast - 2014

by John Platt
Jeremy Rainer

Is Leon Redbone lazy or just laid back? It's a question worth asking, since it took him 13 years to put out his most recent album, ironically titled Flying By. When he came to WFUV recently, I did ask, but I'm not sure he answered it (or any of my questions) directly, but he laughed a lot and let us know a little about what appeals to him in a song. He also gave us a couple of tunes in Studio A, accompanied by the incomparable Vince Giordano on tuba and upright bass.

Question of the Day: Fire

by Corny O'Connell

Listener Gordon from Brooklyn reminds us that it was on this date in 1666 that the Great Fire of London started. By the time it was finally extinguished, more than four-fifths of the city had been destroyed. So today we're collecting your favorite songs that mention fire. List them below and we'll spin a set after 9am.

Here's what we played:

Leonard Cohen "Who By Fire"

The Ink Spots "I Don't Want to Set the World on Fire"
