Good Morning, Music Lovers & Petty Fans Alike! We’ve got a great array of music on tap and — as you may have suspected — Wildflowers & All The Rest is our Album of The Week! It’s an amazing volume of work. I’ve already passed through once. The only question was how it would be presented.
We’ll do that in bursts, but we will have one airing in its complete form before the end of Tom Petty Month. We’ll also air the segments twice a week at various times.
Here’s your line up for Sunday Funday!
11:00 a.m. Album of The Week: Wildflowers & All The Rest by Tom Petty NEW!
Today’s Airing: Live Wildflowers
There’s a ton of new material here. It’s a revelation about how the guy worked, how he worked with his band, and where he was at the time all of that great music made its way out. We’re starting with all the best damned live versions of Wildflower songs.
3:00 p.m. In The Spotlight: The Music of Johnny Rivers
Johnny Rivers, ,a favorite here in The Mermaid Lounge. One of the best damned singers, songwriters, and record producers many will probably never know. His style encompassed rockabilly, folk, blues, and good old time rock n’ roll. You might want to tune this in.
7:00 p.m. That Sweet Soul Sound: Various Artists
This is one sweet playlist with Otis Redding, Marvin Gaye, Aretha Franklin, Gladys Knight, Fats Domino, Roberta Flack, Jackie Wilson, The Marvelettes, The Supremes, and many more.
So, it’s a day of rest. Give it a rest. Tune in. Turn on. Drop out. It’s the only way to unwind. We’ve got great music. And it’s all fucking free. You got a problem with that?
