Got some Janis on the platter....

A few days ago, I watched the documentary Festival Express. This was an amazing doc about the "Festival Express" in Canada in 1970. Instead of having one venue, concert promoters put the artists on a train and moved them from venue to venue. The film details what it was like on that train. The artists included the Grateful Dead, the Band, the Flying Burrito Brothers, and Buddy Guy.

And Janis was there. Her performances on that festival circuit were some of her last.


Today, we are playing a track from her posthumously released Pearl album. Listen on Wednesday at 11am and 11 pm, Eastern. Then throughout the week.
