Good Morning, Ungovernables! We have some great stuff on tap today here in The Mermaid Lounge, and we’re wishing Heartbreakers’ bassist Ron Blair a belated birthday!
Here’s your Thursday line-up:
11:00 a.m. Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers Live at The Grand Olympic Auditorium, Los Angeles, October 16, 2002
We’re a day late, but today we are celebrating Heartbreakers bassist Ron Blair’s 72nd birthday (yesterday). He was an original founding member of the group who left, then came back after the death of Howie Epsein.
Their concert in 2002 after the release of The Last DJ, and turned out to be one of their strongest concerts ever.
The set list for this show appears under the Playlist tab on the blog.
3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: The Lost Tapes by Valerie Carter
Another airing of this great collection of never-before-released songs by the little girl with the big voice. Valerie Carter is a joy to behold.
7:00 p.m. DJ’s Choice: My Favorite R & B Stream
We’ve got a great couple of hours of music here, including cuts from The Temptations, Aretha Franklin, Al Green, James Brown, Stevie Wonder, Martha & The Vandellas, Jackie Wilson, Bill Withers and many more!
This is about 7 hours of programming in a 24-hour day. The rest and in between is all wide-open streaming of the best music of your lives. No lie. We’re free. No commercials. And no useless chatter.
