Creedence Clearwater Revival in The Spotlight, UNCHAINED is Back, The Heartbreakers From Lucca, Italy, Thursday, October 15, 2020

Good Morning, Musicologists and welcome to another day from The Mermaid Lounge where we offer quality programming, minimal talk, and great 24/7 streaming.

Creedence Clearwater Revival was one of the best damned bands on the planet.

Here’s Thursday’s line-up:

11:00 a.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of Creedence Clearwater Revival

With the incredible John Fogerty at the helm, Creedence Clearwater Revival was one of the best damned rock n’ roll bands on the planet. That four guys from Berkeley could make that authentic Swamp Music sound was equally amazing.

3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Unchained by Johnny Cash

We’re winding down here. We have one more airing after today, so don’t forget to tune it. It’ll be gone before you know it, and a brand new album will take its place on Sunday.

7:00 p.m. Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Live at The Piazza Napoleone, Lucca, Italy, June 29, 2012

Yet another road show from the ultimate road band. I keep saying it: You don’t realize how good these guys really are until you’ve experienced them live. Luckily, I did several times, but certainly not enough.

We’ll keep saying it until someone in the U.S. listens: We’ve got listeners all over the world. You ought to figure out why. And you can only do that by listening in.
