Good Morning, Musical Minions! This is our usual active Saturday in The Mermaid Lounge. And I promise you a really good time.
Here’s today’s very active line up!
11:00 a.m. Under The Influence: Various Artists
You know, we’ve all been under the influence at one time or another. Some of it legal. Some of it not so legal. Don’t lie now. Bob Dylan, Arlo Guthrie, Tom Petty, Linda Ronstadt, Little Feat, Talking Heads, Pink Floyd, The Doors, Bob Marley, and many others will be attesting to that fact.
3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: The Lost Tapes by Valerie Carter
The final airing of The Lost Tapes, but never fear. Valerie Carter is a favorite here and you’ll be hearing more of her. Tomorrow, when you wake up, we’ll have a brand new Album of The Week to kick off Blues Week!
7:00 p.m. The Soul Queens, Volume One: Various Artists
Yes. There is an official Queen here. Aretha Franklin. The Queen of Soul. But there are others helping her out: Irma Thomas, Carla Thomas, Etta James, Barbara Lewis, Ann Peebles, The Shirelles, The Ronettes, Martha Reeves & The Vandellas, and more.
10:00 p.m. Live Dead! The Grateful Dead Live at The San Francisco Civic Auditorium, December 30, 1983 NEW!
This is not to be confused with the December 28th show which we aired a few months ago. As we all know, no two shows are ever the same with The Dead.
So, what are you doing today? Hey, I’m slaving in retail hell. My last day before my official “weekend” begins. But you could be here enjoying all this great music. All it takes is a tab and the link below. No shit. Nothing else.
