Good Morning, Fellow Musicologists and Mixologists! It’s bleak, cold, rainy and dreary outside The Mermaid Lounge today and we’ve got about six inches of leaves on the ground out there. But inside? We’ve got great music.
Here’s today’s Friday the 13th line-up!
11:00 a.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of Neil Young
Happy Belated Birthday to Neil Young today, who turned 75 yesterday. He’s still out there, staying true to himself like all the greats do. In addition to his outstanding solo career, Neil Young has been part of Buffalo Springfield, The Stills-Young Band, and Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young. On the road, his backing bands have been Crazy Horse, and Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real. His discography is immense and his contribution immeasurable.
Afternoon Open Stream with Three-in-a-Rows
We’ve got an Open Stream afternoon with some Three-in-a-Row interludes for your listening pleasure. Keep your head low and stay out of trouble today.
7:00 p.m. Deb’s Stream: Good Luck, Bad Luck, Dumb Luck NEW!
You knew this had to happen today. It’s just too good an opportunity to remember some of the songs addressing the issue of luck. You would actually think there’d be more. Tough to find! This playist is about luck (title or lyrics) and taking chances. Enjoy.
By the way, the playlist for this is up on the blog. Just navigate yourselves to the Playlist tab and scroll to the bottom!
This morning, we welcome listeners from Portugal and Lithuania to our community. We’d like to welcome more from the U.S. But as with every other issue, they seem to be asleep at the switch. Or tab. Or keyboard. Whatever your perspective.
