Good Morning, Music Lovers! Here we are again in The Mermaid Lounge playing all the music that’s fit to hear. We cut our Tuesday Bluesday down a bit today to pay respects to John Lennon later.
Here’s today’s line-up:
11:00 a.m. Tuesday Bluesday! The Tedeschi Trucks Band Live at Red Rocks, August 30, 2012
This is a sweet little blues and blues rock band, led by blues singer and guitarist Susan Tedeschi and her husband Derek Trucks. They were formed in 2010 and operate out of Jacksonville, Florida. They have released four studio and two live albums since then, with their 2012 album, Revelator, winning the Grammy Award for Best Blues Album.
3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Eli and The Thirteenth Confession by Laura Nyro
Laura Nyro is one of those quiet superstars, known mostly for making other people famous with her brilliant songwriting skills. But to hear this woman sing her own songs? That’s the best.
7:00 p.m. In The Spotlight: The Music of John Lennon
Forty years ago today, some fucking lunatic who wanted his fifteen minutes of fame gunned down one of the most brilliant rock musicians of all time, and a man who wanted nothing but to live in peace. Fuck you, Mark David Chapman. And John Lennon, you are now resting in peace. We miss you.
Tune us in, people. We’ve added the Russian Federation, Croatia, and Denmark to our listener list over the past week. Where the hell are all of you?
