CLA Radio 11/03/17: Byrds Family Tree (1961-1996)

What: A (mostly) chronological stroll through the music of the Byrds, as well as related artists. Alternate show title: Byrds & Company, with more of an emphasis on the country-flavored material than on the psychedelic stuff.

When: Friday, November 3, 2017; 6:00 PM Pacific/9:00 PM Eastern.

Where: Duane FM in the Hughniverse (subscription required).

(And be sure to stay tuned to Duane FM most weeks after my show to hear Generalissimo’s musical response.)

Here’s a fantastic sort of flowchart of the Byrds timeline.

Spotify playlist: Here. (Any selections marked with an asterisk are not included on Spotify.)
