This Sunday in the album spotlight on Fine Tuning I’ll dive into “Wildflowers & the Rest,” the reissue of Tom Petty’s classic 1994 “Wildflowers” album. Petty originally recorded some 25 songs that he wanted to release on two CDs, but pruned down the project to a single, 15-song album. At long last we get to hear the equally brilliant songs left off the original album, plus home recordings, alternative studio versions and live recordings. This is truly the most important reissue of 2020! That plus new music from Stevie Wonder and Lana Del Rey, and birthday tributes to Chuck Berry and Steve Cropper. Fine Tuning: Sundays from 4 to 6 p.m. on ann arbor’s 107one.
