Peter Frampton: NPR Music Tiny Desk Concert

March 17, 2016 by BOB BOILEN * I could walk by Peter Frampton on the street and not recognize him. His long blond hair, which shines like a halo on his album Frampton Comes Alive! may be gone, but as soon as he sat behind the Tiny Desk and began singing, 1976 came rushing back.

 

Graham Nash

Set list:  “Bus Stop,” “Myself At Last” and “This Path Tonight.”

Graham Nash: NPR Music Tiny Desk Concert

While I sat on the floor watching Graham Nash play The Hollies' 1966 hit "Bus Stop," I caught a glimpse of the same transistor radio I had as a kid when that song filled the AM radio airwaves. It was surreal and beautiful. Nash has a voice that resonates and cuts to the core.
