Well, Good Morning, Musicologists! It’s our usual busy Saturday here in The Mermaid Lounge as we kick off some new playlists to carry us into the New Year!
Here’s today’s line-up:
11:00 a.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of Roy Orbison NEW!
We’ve got all the Roy you want here, from his outstanding solo career right up on through his time as a member of The Traveling Wilburys with friends George Harrison, Tom Petty, Jeff Lynne and Bob Dylan, the best damned super group on the planet. Ever. Enjoy this one.
The set list is up under our Playlist tab. Simply scroll to the bottom!
3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Moondog Matinee by The Band FINAL AIRING!
We’re closing out Moondog Matinee today. Tomorrow when you wake up, there’ll be a brand new Album of the Week ready to go!
6:00 p.m. Selections From the Monterey International Pop Music Festival, June 17-19, 1967
Since today marks the day the rockumentary hit the theaters back in 1968, we thought we’d commemorate the precursor to Woodstock by playing some tunes from the festival.
The set list is also up under the Playlist tab. Again, just scroll down.
10:00 p.m. Live Dead! The Grateful Dead Live at Irvine Meadows Amphitheatre, April 12, 1986 NEW!
Another new ‘Live Dead’ offering for this week. We’ve played no duplicates here since this little extravaganza began, and we will go as long as we can with new material! This one comes from the now-demolished Irvine Meadows Amphitheatre.
Tune us in, people. No commercials. No credit card required. No memberships. No personal information. What’s the matter? That make you nervous?
