Thursday 2/25/21 7pm ET: Feature LP: John Mellencamp – Lonesome Jubilee (1987)

The Lonesome Jubilee is the ninth studio album by American singer-songwriter John Mellencamp, credited as John Cougar Mellencamp. The album was released by Mercury Records on August 24, 1987. Four singles were released from the album, the first two in 1987 and the last two in 1988.

The album was one of Mellencamp’s most successful worldwide, charting in ten countries. The album was most successful in Canada where it topped RPM magazine’s Top Albums chart and became the artist’s highest certified album by Music Canada (formerly the Canadian Recording Industry Association) becoming 6x platinum.

“We were on the road for a long time after Scarecrow, so we were together a lot as a band,” Mellencamp said in a 1987 Creem Magazine feature. “For the first time ever, we talked about the record before we started. We had a very distinct vision of what should be happening here. At one point, The Lonesome Jubilee was supposed to be a double album, but at least 10 of the songs I’d written just didn’t stick together with the idea and the sound we had in mind. So I just put those songs on a shelf, and cut it back down to a single record. Now, in the past, it was always ‘Let’s make it up as we go along’ – and we did make some of The Lonesome Jubilee up as we went along. But we had a very clear idea of what we wanted it to sound like, even before it was written, right through to the day it was mastered.”

You Can Tune a Piano, but You Can’t Tuna Fish is the seventh studio album by REO Speedwagon, released in 1978. It was their first album to be co-produced by lead singer Kevin Cronin and lead guitarist Gary Richrath. The album was REO’s first to make the Top 40, peaking at No. 29. The album sold over 2 million copies in the US, which led it to being certified 2× Platinum.

This is the first album to feature Bruce Hall on bass, replacing Gregg Philbin. In 2013, the album was released on CD by UK-based company Rock Candy Records, with expanded liner notes and photos.

The hits “Time for Me to Fly” and “Roll with the Changes” have since become two of the band’s best-known songs. “Time for Me to Fly” was later covered in a bluegrass arrangement by Dolly Parton on her 1989 album White Limozeen. In 2005, the album cover was featured on Pitchfork’s list of “The Worst Record Covers of All Time”, and in 2014 its title was featured in NME’s list of “The 50 Worst Album Titles in History”. In 2020, Netflix’s Ozark TV series third season episode, “Kevin Cronin Was Here” featured “Time For Me To Fly”, which resulted in the song making the top 40 on the Billboard Digital Songs Chart.

Thursday 2/25/21 12pm ET: Across The Tracks Thursday


Tooth fairies are very unusual indeed. They come under the cloak of darkness, steal away the discarded teeth of children, and in their place leave some form of compensation—usually in the form of money. They are also flying creatures that have received their own day: National Tooth Fairy Day. This holiday, which is celebrated on August 28th and February 28th annually, is a day in which all of us can appreciate the little creatures who do all of the things they do for dental hygiene.

We celebrate this weekend day with tunes about teeth, mouth, tongue and other fun tunes.

Wednesday 2/24/21 12am ET: Feature LP: Mariah Carey (1990)

Mariah Carey is the self-titled debut studio album by American singer-songwriter and record producer Mariah Carey, released on June 12, 1990, by Columbia Records. Its music incorporates a range of contemporary genres with a mix of slow ballads and up-tempo tracks. Originally, Carey wrote four songs with Ben Margulies, which solely constituted her demo tape. After Carey was signed to Columbia, all four songs, after being altered and partially re-recorded, made the final cut for the album. Aside from Margulies, Carey worked with a range of professional writers and producers, all of whom were hired by Columbia CEO, Tommy Mottola. Mariah Carey featured production and writing from Rhett Lawrence, Ric Wake and Narada Michael Walden, all of whom were top record producers at the time. Together with Carey, they conceived the album and reconstructed her original demo tape.

Reviews of the album generally complimented Carey’s voice and technique, but were ambivalent towards the songwriting. It nonetheless became a commercial success, topping the US Billboard 200 album chart for 11 consecutive weeks. Mariah Carey was certified nine-times Platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), denoting shipments of nine million copies in the United States. The album experienced similar success in Canada, where it topped the charts and was certified seven times Platinum. Mariah Carey fared well in other worldwide territories, reaching the top ten in Australia, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Sweden and the United Kingdom. Worldwide, the album has sold more than 15 million copies.

Five singles were released from the album, four of which became number-one hits on the US Billboard Hot 100. Her debut single, “Vision of Love” was chosen as the album’s lead single, topping the charts in Canada, New Zealand and the United States. The song was critically lauded, and is regarded as one of the strongest debut singles by a female artist. With the following three singles, “Love Takes Time”, “Someday” and “I Don’t Wanna Cry” reaching number one in the US, Carey became the first artist since The Jackson 5 to have their first four singles top the charts in the United States.

Sunday 2/21/21 12am ET: Feature LP: Phil Collins – Face Value (1981)

Face Value is the debut solo studio album by English drummer and singer-songwriter Phil Collins, released on February 13, 1981 by Virgin Records in the UK and Atlantic Records in the US and abroad. After his first wife filed for divorce in 1979, Collins began to write songs during a break in activity from his band Genesis with much of the material concerning his personal life. The album was recorded from mid-1980 to early 1981 with Collins and Hugh Padgham as producers. Additional musicians include the Phenix Horns, Alphonso Johnson, and Eric Clapton.

Face Value was an instant commercial success and reached No. 1 on the UK Albums Chart for three weeks and No. 7 on the US Billboard 200. It has since sold over 5 million copies in the US and over 1.5 million in the UK. The album received widespread praise from critics. Its lead single “In the Air Tonight”, released in January 1981, reached No. 2 on the UK Singles Chart and became known for its drum arrangement and use of gated reverb. In January 2016, Face Value was reissued with bonus tracks and new photography in the style of the original but featuring a present-day Collins.

Friday 2/19/21 12pm ET: Feature Artist: Falco


Johann “Hans” Hölzel (February 19, 1957 – February 6, 1998), better known by his stage name Falco, was an Austrian singer, musician, and songwriter.

Falco had several international hits including “Rock Me Amadeus”, “Der Kommissar”, “Vienna Calling”, “Jeanny”, “The Sound of Musik”, “Coming Home (Jeanny Part II, One Year Later)”, and posthumously “Out of the Dark”. “Rock Me Amadeus” reached No. 1 on the Billboard charts in 1986, making him the only artist whose principal language was German to score a vocal number-one hit in the United States (Bert Kaempfert reached No. 1 in January 1961 with the instrumental “Wonderland by Night”). According to his estate, he has sold 20 million albums and 40 million singles, which makes him the best-selling Austrian singer of all time.

Falco died of severe injuries received on February 6, 1998, 13 days before his 41st birthday, when his Mitsubishi Pajero collided with a bus on the road linking the towns of Villa Montellano and Puerto Plata in the Dominican Republic. At the time of his death he was planning a comeback, which was successful with the posthumously released album Out of the Dark (Into the Light). His body was returned to Austria and buried at the Vienna Central Cemetery.
