Good Morning, Ungovernables! Welcome to the Mermaid Lounge, where we seriously play the best music on the planet.
Here’s today’s line-up:
11:00 a.m. Album of the Week: Wanted! The Outlaws. by Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, Jessi Colter, and Tompall Glaser.
This was basically a compilation album released in 1976 to capitalize on the “outlaw” country movement, which turned into one of the most popular country albums of all time, reaching no. 1 on the country charts and no. 10 on the pop charts. It was the first country album to be certified platinum (reaching sales of $1 million). The album also produced two singles, both featuring Waylon Jennings.
2:00 p.m. Echoes From The Canyon
The fantastic music from Laurel Canyon that pioneered the California sound.
5:00 p.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of The Beatles
9:00 p.m. Stephen Stills: Just Roll Tape
Rumor has it that Stephen Stills sat down in a recording studio while Judy Collins was making a record, and simply turned on the tape and started making music himself.
Don’t delay. Join the music revolution today!
