The Shadow- July 27th


The original artist is in The Shins, and he plays bass for the Black Keys, and is also in this new spin-off called The Arcs. He also makes music on his own and for others. He’s really fast. This song is from his 2009 release The Atlantic Ocean and it’s about a fortuitous women. The…

The Shadow- July 24th


The original artist was the long-time girlfriend of Marc Bolan and was driving the car in the crash that killed him in 1977. She was just a teenager when she had her first taste of success with this 1964 song about a relationship that has turned. Sometimes people think the song today is an original…

The Shadow- July 23rd


The original artist is an original swamp rocker and he turns 71 today. This song today about a girl and he unique southern cuisine, might be his best known tune and biggest hit; with the exception of “Steamy Windows”, which he wrote for Tina Turner. The Shadow artist was known as The King. Need I…

The Shadow- July 22nd


The original artist was an early R&B duo that had this 1956 hit: about allowing the pleasurable moments to keep progressing. The song has been Shadowed by the likes of Sonny & Cher, Delbert McClinton, Barbra Streisand, Conway Twitty, and The Animals among others. One half of the duo went on to have an early…

The Shadow- July 21st


The original artist found the location with this song, and kept the naivety in the melodic parts at the same time. The Shadow artist is a combo of Sam Beam and a horse from Band of Horses. It’s a new collaborative album and this is the opening track and the title track in a way,…

The Shadow- July 20th


The original artist is actually the original artist. Most people probably think the song today is an original by the Shadow artist; but alas, it’s from this English group’s second album, a compilation of singles and other material, released in the US in 1969. This album is called English Rose, the UK version is called…

The Shadow- July 17th


The original band was a quartet from England. Your mother should know they sold quite a few records on Penny Lane. Don’t let me down, guess the artist! The shadow band is still going after 48 years. They aren’t in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, but they should be, as they were influential…

The Shadow- July 16th


The song today is the title track to his sixth album, released 50 years ago this August. It tells the absurd tales of things that could happen on a particular road. The Shadow artist traveled this road many times. This blues legend was known for his cold guitar licks and long white locks. He passed…

Weekend on the Radio: July 16th – 19th


It’s a jam packed weekend of music, music, and more music. That’s partially because it’s time once again for the Baltimore summer tradition of Artscape. There’s lots of art of course, but there’s also an incredible musical line-up including a lot of “&” bands: George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic, Michael Franti & Spearhead, and Trombone…

The Shadow- July 15th


5:00 is Shadow time! The original band formed in NYC in 1974 and played their first gig under their new band name opening for the Ramones at CBGB the following year. They broke up acrimoniously in 1991, although they did reunite and perform for their induction in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in…
