July Preview

We'll start out July with the All-American Acoustic Storm, featuring U.S. artists the weekend of 7/2-7/3. Michigan's Bob Seger & the Silver Bullet Band will go into the Eye of The Storm, and we'll traverse the country with music from Springsteen, Hendrix, James Taylor, the Eagles, the Doors, John Mellencamp, Stevie Nicks, and many more.

The following weekend, we've got Heart in the Eye of The Storm with music from Ann and Nancy Wilson's Acoustic Storm Sessions, recorded last July in Los Angeles. You'll hear exclusive versions of "Crazy on You" and "Barracuda" with excerpts from our conversation with the Wilson sisters.

For 7/16-7/17, Ray Davies and the Kinks get the spotlight in the Eye, and we'll play a Storm-theme set in tribute to the first lunar landing on July 20, 1969 with music from the Beatles, the Police, Bowie and more.

During the weekend of 7/23-7/24, we've got the Traveling Wilburys in the Eye of The Storm for our summer travel theme. With an all-star line-up of George Harrison, Tom Petty, Bob Dylan, Roy Orbison and Jeff Lynne, the Wilburys recorded two albums and left some indelible musical memories. We'll wrap up July with Elton John in the Eye of The Storm.
