Welcome to Sunday and Our New Album of The Week & The Sixties Rotation!

Good Morning, Music Lovers! Today we have a brand new album of the week, and we have our monthly five-hour, uninterrupted Sixties Rotation. This is the music that is in our DNA here in The Mermaid Lounge.

The Sixties. It’s in our DNA here at #BecomeUngovernable Radio.

Here’s today’s line-up!

11:00 a.m. Album of The Week: The Main Refrain by Wendy Waldman NEW!

The Main Refrain is one of the finest albums ever made from someone many may never have heard of. Those of us who were listening to Linda Ronstadt and Maria Muldaur, however, know Wendy Waldman because they introduced her to their followers. Fame may have eluded her over the years, but her contributions as a writer, singer and producer are immense. She remains one of the most well-respected singers of her generation among her peers. Linda Ronstadt appears on this album, and they combine their voices beautifully on The Eagle and The Owl. Pay attention, children.

3:00 p.m. The Sixties Rotation, Volume 2: Various Artists

Our monthly homage to the inspiration for this radio station with more than five uninterrupted hours of streaming. The Beatles, The Grateful Dead, The Rolling Stones, Canned Heat, The Guess Who, The Doors, The Who, Janis Joplin, Them, The Zombies, Jimi Hendrix, The Searchers and many others take a trip through The Mermaid Lounge today.

Before and after all of this great programming we have Open Stream because we run 24/7 uninterrupted, with no charge, no meaningless chatter, and no advertising. This would be an excellent day to join us.


Yes, There is Even a Sunday Session at The College of Rock n’ Roll Knowledge!

Good Morning, Students! We are back with yet another lesson in the fine art of rock n’ roll trivia here in The Mermaid Lounge. We have all the salient rock n’ roll details every day.

The Star Club, Hamburg, Germany. The Beatles blew the doors off the place in 1962.

Here’s today’s lesson:

November 15, 1932: Petula Clark (born Sally Olwen Clark) is born in Epsom, Surrey, England. Later in life, songs like Downtown and I Know A Place would make her famous.

November 15, 1956: Johnny & The Moondogs (consisting of John Lennon, Paul McCartney and George Harrison) appear in the final round of Britain’s TV Star Search at The Hippodrome Theatre, Manchester, where they perform Think It Over and It’s So Easy. Unfortunately, the did not have enough money to stay overnight, so they returned home before being able to finish the competition.

November 15, 1965: The Rolling Stones debut on NBC-TV’s Hullabaloo Show where they sing Get Off Of My Cloud.

On this day, The Beatles also finished recording Rubber Soul.

November 15, 1966: The Jefferson Airplane record Somebody To Love, which would reach #5 in in the summer of 1967.

Also, The Doors officially sign with Elektra Records in a deal for the band to release seven albums.

November 15, 1969: Janis Jopin is arrested at her concert in Tampa, Florida, and is charged with using “vulgar and indecent language.” The charges were later dropped.

November 15, 1972: Although I’m generally not into ‘soft rock’ on this day America released a most excellent album called Homecoming. We will soon feature it as our Album of The Week.

And finally, Hamburg, German’y’s famous Star Club — where a very young group called The Beatles once played — announced it would be closing its doors forever.

That’s it from the college of rock n’ roll knowlege. Stick around and we’ll give you today’s line up a bit later!
