Good Morning, Musicologists! We’ve got a great line-up today here from The Mermaid Lounge. Some people are forgotten at times. We won’t allow that to happen to Sam Cooke.
Here’s today’s line-up:
11:00 a.m. One Night Stand: Sam Cooke Live at The Harlem Square Club, Miami, Florida, January 12, 1963
This performance was recorded back in 1963, but not released until 1985. RCA kept it locked in their vaults, thinking it was too gritty and would tarnish his pop image. In fact, it is now recognized as one of the best live performances in popular music history. Today we celebrate what would be Sam Cooke’s 90th birthday.
3:00 p.m. The Shadow: 08 Murder By The Dead FINAL AIRING!
That pesky beyond-the-grave killer returns. It’s a mystery, of course, until The Shadow figures it out.
7:00 p.m. Between Heaven & Hell: Various Artists
Haven’t heard this one in a while. This is a good day for it. Tuning us in will bring you Donovan, Led Zeppelin, The Foo Fighters, Emmylou Harris, Tom Petty, The Grass Roots, Pink Floyd, ZZ Top, Elvis Presley, Van Morrison, and then some!
