For any fine 89er who ever gave a wing flap about the Eagles……my 90 minute tribute show to the late Glenn Frey, a founding member of the band and one of the two eagles to be in the band from start to finish (the other, of course, being Don Henley).
I leaned heavily on the first 3 Eagles albums for this one, so you’ll hear some of Glenn’s forgotten/overlooked obscurities, as well as some of his greatest hits, as well as a couple of his excellent solo songs from the 80’s.
And yes, I highly recommend sitting in the dark or low light for these shows, just you going one on one with your stereo…..and see where these songs take you.
Before the eagles got bogged down with mega-stardom, lawsuits, and acrimony, they were, especially on Eagles, Desperado, On the Border, and One of These Nights, a helluva band.
You’ll hear why they were the biggest band of the 70’s….bigger than led zep and the stones and pink floyd and anyone else. hope you dig!

“Hey, anybody who wants to dig some Dave…..listen in on Catie’s & my retrospectives of the late great Mr. Bowie.
Yes, you’ll hear some of the hits. And yes, you’ll hear some of the great non-hits. They both came out real good and I think you’ll like.
Albums represented include Ziggy, Aladdin, Diamond Dogs, Station to Station, Low, Scary Monsters, Young Americans, Heroes, and Let’s Dance.
So dig……it’ll be at least as good as motherflippin’ jeopardy!”
