Good Morning, Music Lovers! We hope you checked out our new College of Rock n’ Roll Knowledge feature this morning! Today, we make amends for missing Bonnie’s birthday.
Here’s today’s musical programming:
11:00 a.m. In The Spotlight: The Music of Bonnie Raitt
Yes, we were remiss on this one. We do try to keep up with all of the birthdays of consequence here in The Mermaid Lounge. Some days it’s difficult. But we always make amends. We’ve got a great panoramic playlist of Bonnie Raitt’s career here. Enjoy.
3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers
The self-titled debut album has one more airing after today, so get on it. It delivered iconic songs like American Girl and Breakdown. You can’t go wrong here. There are some wonderful sleepers as well, like Mystery Man and Luna, two of my favorite Petty songs ever.
7:00 p.m. Deb’s Stream: Drivin’ Songs-Various Artists
Anybody who has ever driven for distance knows how important good music is. We’ve collected some of the best songs here from The Doobie Brothers, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, The Beatles, Linda Ronstadt, The Pretenders, Bruce Springsteen, and many more!
What in Buddha’s name are you all waiting for? Open your musical minds, people. This is totally free with no strings. I know you’re not used to that shit, but that’s what we’ve got here.
