Good Morning, Music Lovers! Here we are on our usual chock full Saturday, and it’s all good, as they say these days. Personally, I prefer, “It’s fucking mint.”
Here’s today’s line-up:
11:00 a.m. Deb’s Stream: The Best of Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers Live UPDATED!
This isn’t a new playlist, but it has been updated over the past week, and we haven’t heard live Heartbreakers in a while, mostly because I try not to show favoritism when it comes to them, The Beatles, and Linda Ronstadt. It’s a struggle. Here we have my absolute favorite Heartbreaker live performances, and we’re simply not done yet. There will be other iterations of this playlist down the road.
4:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Eli and The Thirteenth Confession by Laura Nyro
This is your last chance to hear this great album this week. Tomorrow, we move on to a new selection. Don’t mess this up, people.
7:00 p.m. The Flying Burrito Brothers Live at The Avalon Ballroom, San Francisco, April 6, 1969 NEW!
This is the perfect early evening performance by the Gram Parsons version of the Flying Burrito Brothers. This was actually the opening act for The Grateful Dead that evening. We have this weeks’ Live Dead coming up a bit later!
10:00 p.m. Live Dead! The Grateful Dead Live at Berkeley Community Theater, Berkeley, California, April 22, 1986 NEW!
It’s our Saturday night constitution here in The Mermaid Lounge. This week’s Live Dead is from the Berkeley Community Center.
Tune in. Turn on. Drop out. That’s what I’d be doing if I had my choice. But alas, I don’t. I owe my soul to the company store. So, you enjoy yourselves on my behalf.
