2013 Shows-Timmons Brothers Guest Appearances

Timmons Brothers: “A Look at the Debut Album”

Original airdate: March 9, 2013


From Rock’n’Roll legends to single album artists, they share in common the making of a debut album. The level of success for the debut album varies as much as the level of success in the performer’s career. The first album can be a springboard and launch a great career (such as The Beatles and The Rolling Stones). The first album can also be a collection of veteran rock performers who assemble a new band (such as Led Zeppelin and Bad Company). Join the Timmons Brothers as they debate what entails a debut album and discuss several categories of the debut album. “The Debut Album: Where it All Begins for Performers”

“The Singer/Songwriter: Part 1″

Original airdate: June 1, 2013


The singer/songwriter has evolved from the roots of traveling performers in 19 century Europe to its own niche in today’s contemporary music market. In Part I, the focus of the Timmons Brothers will be the first half of the era when the singer-songwriter arguably enjoyed their greatest commercial success (mid 1960s – mid 1970s). From Dylan to Donovan and Neil Diamond to James Taylor, the singer/songwriters provide commentary on the times with their lyrics, grab your heart with their melodies, make a political statement with their compositions, and through it all, they write, compose and sing their own musical material. “The Singer/Songwriter: Part 1″

“The Singer/Songwriter: Part II”

Original airdate: September 1, 2013


The Singer/Songwriter Part II: The Golden Era (1970 – 75) As a follow up to Part I, the focus of the Timmons Brothers will be the second half of the era when the singer-songwriter arguably enjoyed their greatest commercial success (early to mid 1970s). From Harry Chapin to Jim Croce and Gordon Lightfoot to Billy Joel among others, the singer/songwriters provided commentary on the times with their lyrics while evoking emotions with their melodies. Through it all, this period may have been the most noteworthy for the singer/songwriter. “The Singer/Songwriter: Part 2″

“A Review of The Byrds: Folk Rockers and Innovators”

Original airdate: November 17, 2013


Pioneers of folk rock and country rock, the Byrds combined harmony, an electric 12 string guitar, and thought provoking lyrics. They were influenced by The Beatles, but they also fascinated The Beatles. The Timmons Brothers review the legacy of a band from the original five of McGuinn, Crosby, Hillmam, Gene Clark and Michael Clarke (who were inducted into the Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame in 1991) to several shifts of changing personnel. Through the changes, they continued to be innovators with their sound. A rare combination of combining commercial success with Top Forty singles while extending rock into new underground areas, the story of the Byrds is as interesting as their freshness in their music to this day. “A Review of The Byrds: Folk Rockers and Innovators”
