With Jeff Perry

A look at the week in music history... major releases, number one singles and albums, musical birthdays and more. Listen as host Jeff Perry recounts the week's musical milestones and the songs that go with them, concentrating on the 1940's to the 1990's.

This Week In Music History - show 346

Musical milestones-- Paul McCartney was born, three giants from the world of jazz died, the first Monterey International Pop festival took place, Elvis Presley was embarrassed by his movies, and classic albums were released by Joy Division, Queen, The Police, and Captain Beefheart. I’ll spin tunes by Otis Redding, Ella Fitzgerald, Benny Goodman, Jimmy Dorsey, Frank Sinatra, and The Beatles, and celebrate the musical birthdays of Marv Tarplin of Smokey Robinson & The Miracles, Lamont Dozier, John Linnell of They Might Be Giants, Uriel Jones, Reg Presley of The Troggs, Sammy Cahn, and Igor Stravinsky. Plus my kids will make you smile.
