InTheStudio is celebrating the 35th anniversary of Jackson Browne's Running On Empty on the latest episode of the syndicated radio show. They sent over these details:

Jackson Browne remembers the concept for the album Running On Empty to program host Redbeard. "It wasn't called Running On Empty…But it was going to be a live album, with live versions of songs that had already been recorded, and new songs, and jams, and some of the hilarious things people say."

Coming off his solo breakthrough album The Pretender, the Southern California singer/songwriter suddenly found himself a single parent with a 3 year old son and a widower following the suicide of his wife. Conventional wisdom would assume that any one of these challenges alone could require an entertainer to put his or her career on hold indefinitely, yet Jackson Browne did exactly the opposite. He went on tour to work through his personal struggle and his creative pause, where the road offered a routine, structure and distance from the pain. Browne's idea to write and record on the road would garner two Top 20 singles, "The Load Out/Stay" and the # 11 charting title track "Running On Empty". Stream the episode here.
