Good Morning, Music Lovers! We are working in reverse today because there’s a lot of shit going on in The Mermaid Lounge today. Our music trivia will appear after this a bit later on. Sorry to upset your mojo.
Here’s today’s line-up:
11:00 a.m. In The Spotlight: The Music of Paul McCartney
With the Beatles, with Wings, and as a solo artist, Paul McCartney has stood the test of time. Yeah, he was the most commercial of The Beatles. Without that, there would not be the opportunity to create the other shit. Record companies don’t support people who don’t create revenue. That’s how capitalism works, like it or not.
3:00 p.m. Emmylou Harris & The Desert Rose Band
One of our favorites, Emmylou Harris, takes a turn with the Desert Rose Band, founded by ex-Byrd Chris Hillman. Other members include Herb Pederson, John Jorgenson, Bill Bryson, JayDee Maness, and Steve Duncan.
7:00 p.m. In The Spotlight: The Music of Booker T. & The MG’s
Ah yes, remember when instruments mattered in music? Now, according to Kanye West, Yeezy, Ye, Assclown of the Century, you can make all that shit sound with a computer and a program. Progress. Ain’t it great?
10:00 p.m. The Shadow: 08 Murder By The Dead NEW!
A convicted man sentenced to death vows retribution from the grave. A judge and a D.A. are murdered shortly after his execution. They better call The Shadow fast because the jury foreman is next unless someone figures this shit out.
Tune us in, people. You are wasting valuable hours of ear candy. Get on it.
