Good Morning, Music Lovers, and welcome to the weekend in The Mermaid Lounge and Music Emporium. Today we kick off with The British Are Coming, a great playlist that encapsulates the British Invasion and then some!
Here’s Saturday’s line-up:
10:00 a.m. The British Are Coming! Various Artists
Also known as, It Came From Across The Pond, we feature more than five hours of uninterrupted bliss from The Beatles, The Dave Clark Five, The Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, The Who, Peter & Gordon,, Lulu, Petula Clark, Herman’s Hermits, Gerry & The Pacemakers, The Searchers and more!
7:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Sweet Baby James by James Taylor
The final airing of this week’s album, Sweet Baby James, by James Taylor. Sunday when you roll out of bed, there’s going to be a brand new Album of The Week.
10:00 p.m. Live Dead! The Grateful Dead Live at The Hollywood Bowl, July 21, 1974 NEW!
No two tours ever the same. No two shows ever the same. The Grateful Dead remain the master jam band.
Good day to tune us in. I know. I say that every damned day. But it’s a fact. What are you waiting for?
Good Morning, Escape Artists! Listen, this (s)election process is a fucking bust all the way around. You need to be here listening to great music with no (s)election updates. None. We’ve only got great music to offer you.
Here’s today’s line-up:
11:00 a.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of Jerry Jeff Walker NEW!
Jerry Jeff Walker originated the idea of the ‘country music outlaw’ back in the day, and he lived it. He made some really great music, and he was just a blast to see in concert. I saw him a couple of times, the most memorable was when he opened for Little Feat at the old Harvard Square Theater in Cambridge. A splended time was had by all that evening.
Afternoon Open Stream with Three-in-a-Row Interludes
Enjoy your afternoon with a bunch of our new Three-in-a-Row interludes thrown in. We’re not like any other station out there. We’re circulating 26,000 songs at present. No favorites. No weighting the playlist. At work, we listen to an open 60s music station all day. It’s great. But it’s essentially the same playlist every day. That’s not us.
7:00 p.m. Echoes From The Canyon: Various Artists
The Laurel Canyon music scene is the stuff legends are born from. When you get that many talented people together in one place, it’s legendary status is almost guaranteed. Hear Neil Young, The Mamas & The Papas, The Beach Boys, Joni Mitchell, The Lovin’ Spoonful, Jackson Browne and many others.
Every day is a good day to tune us in. We have folks in Europe that keep us going for days on end. They know a good thing when they hear it.
