The second weekend of the month will provide a new twist on The Who in the Eye of The Storm. For the weekend of 3/12-3/13, we'll explore the acoustic side of The Who's classic 1971 album "Who's Next" with demos and unplugged performances, along with a track from the album itself.
On that same show, we'll play music from some of the artists that are heading into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame this month. In order of their appearance on that episode of The Storm, we'll hear from Leon Russell, Neil Diamond, Dr. John and Tom Waits.
We've also got a couple of Irish artists to celebrate St. Patrick's Day in the middle hour of the 3/12-13 Acoustic Storm with Van Morrison and U2.
There's speculation that a Buffalo Springfield reunion may be in the works. Neil Young, Stephen Stills and Richie Furay, the surviving members of the band, reunited onstage for the first time in 42 years last October at Neil's Bridge School benefit concerts in Mountain View, California.
Buffalo Springfield formed in 1966 and broke up less than three years later. Original bassist Bruce Palmer died in 2004, and drummer Dewey Martin passed away in 2009.
The Bridge School shows featured Young, Stills and Furay, along with drummer Joe Vitale and Young's longtime bassist Rick Rosas. Some of the Springfield songs they performed included "For What It's Worth," "Rock N Roll Woman," "Mr. Soul," and "Bluebird."
So we're looking forward to bringing you Buffalo Springfield in the Eye of The Storm the weekend of 3/26-27.
Here's the March schedule of featured artists on The Acoustic Storm:
3/5-3/6 BOB SEGER & THE SILVER BULLET BAND
