WPDH Soundcheck: Petty, Purple, and more!
This week on the WPDH Soundcheck it's Tom Petty, back home in Gainesville, Florida to play in front of a sold out concert hall, plus Deep Purple in Japan, Pat Benatar in Texas and much more. It's all live Sunday night at 10pm on 101.5 WPDH, also on the WPDH app.
Tom Petty was born in Gainesville, Florida, which is the home of the University of Florida Gators. Petty and the Heartbreakers came back to Tom's old stomping grounds at the Stephen O'Connell Center in September of 2006 with Stevie Nicks helping out her old buddy on a couple of songs. On that night he did 21 songs including Traveling Wilbury material.
Deep Purple was recorded in Japan in 1972 in Osaka and Tokyo for a release called "Made in Japan". The band did not want this released worldwide, only releasing it in Japan and they would keep the rights to the material but that didn't happen, good for the rest of planet earth!
