Neil Young

So...it's obvious that the Something Completely Different you'll be seeing on Friday, July 20th, is the one that has to do with the moon (often called The Moon). I'm looking at the list of thirty songs right now, and seeing that every title (with the exception of the last one) has the word "Moon" in it, like for instance, Moonshadow by Cat Stevens, Full Moon and Empty Arms by Bob Dylan (Wait a minute! The song that bears that title came out in the 1940s, when I was a little kid, when Bob Dylan was a littler kid, maybe not even born!

Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real carry the country rock torch for a new generation – From all-out rockers to tender ballads, and lyrics full of humor and heartache. Lukas is the son of Willie Nelson, who the band has opened for many times, and they've also collaborated on records with Neil Young, including his latest one, The Visitor. We'll hear how they landed that gig, and it wasn't by having a famous father, as Lukas tells host Talia Schlanger. We're revisiting Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real's in-studio performance, on this encore edition of the World Cafe.

It's no use yelling "Someone call me a doctor!" because, in this particular time in our country, all I'd get would be a chorus of "O.K.! You're a doctor!" Very funny.

Neil Young & Promise of the Real "The Visitor" is Neil's third release in the last year.  Young once again uses Lukas Nelson's band Promise of the Real to back him up on ten songs bemoaning our current political waters. Never one to mince words, the songs include "Already Great" , "When Bad Got Good", and "Stand Tall"
