We begin our series of artist-oriented Throwback Thurday celebrations with a trailblazing songwriter, a poet, an activist, an icon around the world — the one and only Bob Marley.

Every hour, from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m., will begin with a block or two of Marley’s music — the Legend-ary hits, the deep cuts, and other special spotlights. In the 9:00 hour, Kristen Kurtis will play notable covers of Bob Marley songs. Mike Vasilikos is cooking up a theme for the noon hour, and in the 1:00 hour, he’ll play an album side from 1975’s Live! album. And in the 6:00 hour, Jim McGuinn will play an album side from Exodus.

So get up, stand up, and join us in this amazing artist who championed freedom, love, and equality.
