THE WEEKEND STARTS HERE:
...with HARRY NILSSON! He would have celebrated a birthday yesterday, so let's revisit the BBC's "The Music of Nilsson from 1971, including a mashup of "Mr. Richland's Favorite Song" and "One," "Gotta Get Up," a medley of "Walk Right Back," "Cathy's Clown" and "Let The Good Times Roll," and really moving take on "Life Line." Then there are two videos from The Point! -- "Think About Your Troubles" and "Are You Sleeping" -- sandwiching "Joy." The set concludes with "Without Her," "Coconut" and "1941."
