Airs Friday, October 20, 2017, at 9 p.m. This week on the Caravan we feature a two part appreciation of Top Petty starting with Tom Petty - Live and Kickin' It. The legendary rocker's surprising death on October 2, 2017 set off a series of tributes and fond memories by Petty's millions of fans around the world. Paul Ingles produced several specials honoring the beloved musician.  Then we'll hear Room At The Top. Rolling Stone writer Anthony DeCurtis and Esquire Magazine's Jeff Slate join Paul Ingles for a thoughtful and heart-felt review of the special qualities that made the late Tom Petty such an important figure in rock 'n' roll. Music from throughout Tom's 40 year career is featured. In our Final hour we'll examine a Paradox of Grace.
