Acknowledged widely as The Father of Country-Rock and Americana and the man who introduced us to Emmylou Harris (not to mention the foundation of Friday night's "Cosmic American Music Show"), Gram Parsons was born on 11/5/46. His all-too-short solo career followed short, classic stints with The Byrds, Flying Burrito Brothers, and of course The International Submarine Band. We honor one of our favorites with "GP" on Monday night, near the 40th anniversary of its release, along with selections from other Gram recordings to round out the hour.
Monday night 11/5 at 8pm: GRAM PARSONS - GP
