We have da blues all week long here from The Mermaid Lounge. We’ve got an interesting selection for you today, to say the least.
Here’s today’s high-energy line-up:
11:00 a.m. Johnny Winter Live at The Bottom Line, New York, September 5, 1978
Johnny Winter was the real deal, but perhaps not in the traditional sense. He is known for his distinctive blues-rock style, and his live performances of the late 60s and the 70s are legendary. He also produced three Grammy award-winning albums for blues legend Muddy Waters. Today we have him live at The Bottom Line.
3:00 p.m. Album of the Week: Born Under a Bad Sign by Albert King
If you missed the first airing on Sunday, here’s another opportunity to hear our Album of The Week.
7:00 p.m. In the Spotlight: The J. Geils Band
Some purists may turn their nose up at this selection, but that’s why I run the station. No matter what they tell you, this was Boston’s original party band, and they were once known as the J. Geils Blues Band before they made their crossover. No matter, they were the masters of blues rock, and when they were on stage, there was nobody like them.
It’s a day, isn’t it? So, why not tune us in. Doesn’t matter what time you choose…unless, of course, you want to hear our programming. Otherwise, we run 24/7, For free.
