During my ROCK days I listened to WMMR 93.3 FM.
So have you had yer daily dose of MF today? No, I’m talking Mother’s Finest- one VERY popular local bunch way back in the day in Atlanta! Saw them at Six Flags Atl probably a half-dozen times in the late 70’s and they are still touring today! Why the lead singer-Sweet Baby Jean Kennedy never had a multi-million dollar singing contract is beyond me-that gal can belt it out like nobody’s biz!!
How they ever got away with this song and it’s title I’ll never know!
I wonder if she is related to Harrison Kennedy?
Update edit. Not related to Harrison Kennedy.
However I found something more interesting that I did not know. When the band was formed they recruited Gary Moore to play guitar. How about that?
And @SnuffySmiff Great reply on 96 ROCK That’s what we want to hear. I know what it’s like growing up with no descent, or even modern stations within range. And what a big deal it was when one finally came into being or eventually got a big enough transmitter that you could pull it in with a good receiver. When I was in HS there was only one good rock station. KJOT 105.1 J105 in Boise, 120 mi away. A good car stereo and antenna would receive it in stereo without too much phase and crackle. And if you could get it then that was the only choice, otherwise you were an idiot or not from here. LOL
Wow! Did not know that! Gary Moore was about the most under-appreciated guitarist ever!
I agree. And he is one of the masters. Like Clapton, Warren Haynes, and the like. I have posted some Gary Moore in the past. One was on oct 18 if you want to scroll back to it.
Yet another greatly under-appreciated artist IMHO is another slide bluesman, Sonny Landreth…
On 19 March, Eric Clapton joined the Allman Brothers Band on stage at The Beacon Theatre in New York City for the first of two historic guest appearances. Other guests that evening were Susan Tedeschi and Danny Louis of Gov’t Mule.

Hmmmmm… we ought to swing back around to JOANNA CONNOR for a couple more, me thinks.
Yup, a Lita Ford she ain’t! But what she does with that Gibson is something else! Bit of a downer learning that she is one of them ‘bernouts’ but I reckon if I only listened to the artists I agreed with politically, I wouldn’t get to hear near as much…
one of the latest southern boogie bands to make their mark
Don’t recollect ever hearing of this guy before today (I don’t get out near as much these days!) but it is impressive
along with this near 30-year-old gem-I can barely remember Warren being this young:
another great classic-with a near-teenage-looking Derek Trucks
How ‘bout some late Friday night sho’ 'nuff blues?
two of my all-time fav bands-The Outlaws and Molly Hatchet!
@SnuffySmiff Gem indeed! And they do look young.
I almost posted Fall of the Peacemakers a couple of weeks ago.
Up until around age 12 all I’d ever really listened to was bluegrass and hard-core country thanks to my folks. The summer before turning 13 was when I discovered rock n’ roll and it was due to hearing Rod Stewart’s ‘Maggie May’ and ‘Losing You’ that literally turned my little world upside down! My folks were absolutely mortified and began acting like I was on dope! Looking back now it was funny but not at the time! Anyway, there was only one group that Rod Stewart ever fronted that I would or could ever listen to and that was The Faces…
Man, this ‘gettin’ old’ chit is really-and I mean REALLY gettin’ old!!! I just barely twisted the left knee this afternoon whilst walking out to the car and tonight it’s done got all swoll’ up and is now hurtin’ like a mother! Tiger Balm, ice, and pain meds ain’t even touching it!
Oh well, not much I can do about it but perhaps some ABB will help…?
