And did we mention our new Three-in-a-Row feature here in The Mermaid Lounge? Listen for it throughout the day here as you enjoy our minimal-intervention format.
Here’s Thursday’s line-up!
11:00 a.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of Emmylou Harris
I’m not sure what words can be used to describe Emmylou Harris’ brilliant musical journey. I can say this with a chuckle. I never paid any attention to country music on any level until I heard Elite Hotel. I remember distinctly saying to my oldest sister, “There’s something wrong with me. I’m suddenly into country music.”It was a great awakening, thanks to Emmylou. (But, oh, yeah: I’m not into the “bad pop bands with fiddles” as described by Tom Petty. He got the whole country thing.)
7:00 p.m. Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers: The Live Anthology Trip
This live release is amazing. You get to hear stuff you might not otherwise hear in a live format, and you get to hear one of the greatest cover bands as they shove all those classic rock n’ roll numbers into their live shows. Enjoy this as we prepare for Petty’s Birthday Bash this weekend.
I’m a person of few words this morning. I’m not going to bug you about tuning us in. No sir. Your loss. Know what I mean?
Pssssst…don’t forget to listen for those Three-in-a-Row moments!
