Tribute to Tom Petty and Feature of Oh Susanna's new album as prep for her concert this Saturday at the NAC

Tonight all the news reports seem to indicate that Tom Petty is on his deathbed after suffering a heart attack today. Petty has released a lot of great music over the years and we play a couple of my favourites from Damn the Torpedoes tonight, along with the Waiting ... which must be the hardest part for his family this evening. We also spin 4 songs from Oh Susanna's latest album A Girl in Teen City as she's coming to Ottawa on Saturday (Oct. 7) at the National Arts Centre. Susie has 7 great albums out, but this one is special. She's reallly hit on something as she retraces her tracks as a teen growing up in Vancouver in the 80s. She is always witty when playing live and has one of the purest voices around - so don't miss her show at the NAC on Saturday. Also check out Sarah MacDougall who is in at the NAC on the Fourth Stage next Tuesday, October 10th. We also spin some new music from the War on Drugs, the National and LCD Soundsystem. And to wrap things up the Drive By Truckers are trying to figure out What It Means.... who knows. By the way... NOBODY needs automatic weapons... NOBODY.
