In the mid-'70s, Richie Furay left behind the world of rock 'n' roll to answer a higher calling. But who says he can't return to his roots if the spirit moves him? Furay, a singer-songwriter-guitarist and founding member of both Buffalo Springfield and Poco, became a born-again Christian after steel guitarist Al Perkins (of the short-lived Souther-Hillman-Furay Band) introduced him to the faith.

1 P.M. DON'T MISS Old 97's. The fiery '90s alt-country band from Dallas that launched singer-songwriter Rhett Miller is currently at work on its first studio album since 2004's "Drag It Up." (Palomino Stage, 1:45-2:35) CATCH IT IF YOU CAN David Serby. With easygoing Dwight Yoakam-meets-Ricky Nelson vocals, his skill is at sharp turns of phrase, and he has a fine debut album getting him noticed in country circles. (Palomino Stage, 1-1:30) ALSO Old School Freight Train.

He has a Harley in his garage, LSD in his past and a "liveskunk" he occasionally holds in his lap aboard airplanes. He talks up Jesus at stadiums and on surfboards.

"Retrospective: The Best of the Buffalo Springfield." Atco. Led by Neil Young, Stephen Stills and Richie Furay, Buffalo Springfield was one of the most gifted and influential American rock groups of the late '60s. Its most memorable songs--including Stills' "For What It's Worth"--combined disarming country-rock arrangements with a clear-eyed social realism and/or deeply rooted introspection that was, in part, a model for the Eagles and Crosby, Stills & Nash.

I find it sad and disturbing that Calendar can devote column after column to reviews of every two-bit rapper, punk has-been, metal never-was and even country wannabe but can't find room for a paragraph or two to review a special show at the Malibu Performing Arts Center featuring local legends Chris Hillman (the Byrds, Desert Rose Band) and Richie Furay (Buffalo Springfield, Poco). Couldn't you send someone to cover this event?
