we get mail on a regular basis from folks who want to know what such and such a song was at 3:22 on a wednesday afternoon, and the truth is……this data is not easy to retrieve. you know what is much better? if you have the SHAZAM APP on your phone. it’s free, it’s simple, avail for both apple and android, and IT WORKS. that is, it will identify song and artist for you just by holding the phone up to the speaker while the song in question is playing. it’s uncanny. Shazam will give you song title, artist, album, and maybe even a pic or two. and even with our wide open playlist, it is successful about 80-85% of the time. SHAZAM. all the Jivest JiveRadio listeners have it….and use it!
And you know that tribute button on our home page? those are all the tribute shows we’ve cranked out in the last few years to many of the important music folks who have shed this mortal coil. these retrospectives are there for your listening convenience and enjoyment. Bruce has done tribs to Dr John, Tom Petty, Mose Allison, Walter Becker, Chuck Berry, ELP, Leonard Cohen, Leon Russell, Prince, Paul Kantner, Glenn Frey, and David Bowie. (jeez, somehow, i forgot to do Col. Bruce Hampton, Gregg Allman, and Roky Erickson. my bad!) Jeff did tributes to Dan Hicks and Larry Hosford, Hayseed Don fired up a nice one for Guy Clark, and my kid Catie did a super cool one for Bowie. so there ya go!
