Happy Valentines Day, Music Lovers! We’ve got a great Valentines Day lined up today, even if the playlist is about heartbreak. There’s also volume 3 of our All-Girl Revue and a brand new Album of the Week by our friend Tom Rush.
Here’s today’s line-up:
11:00 a.m. Album of The Week: Take A Little Walk With Me by Tom Rush NEW!
Tom Rush’s second album for Elektra hit the airwaves in 1966. He’s one of our favorites here in The Mermaid Lounge, a New England original born in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. And the man who is credited with starting the era of the singer-songwriter.
3:00 p.m. Nothing But Heartbreak: Various Artists
Not exactly the most uplifting playlist on this Valentines Day, but given my track record, it’s appropriate! You’ll hear heartfelt lament from Dan Fogelberg, Aretha Franklin, Tom Rush, J. Geils Band, Mudcrutch, Elvis Presley, Carole King, Warren Zevon, The Beatles, and more!
7:00 p.m. The All-Girl Revue, Volume 3: Various Artists
We’ve got volume three today. Somehow the women of music always get the short end of the recognition stick. I mentioned this in a Twitter post. First, I can’t believe they’re inducting rappers into what is supposed to be the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. That’s enough of an insult. But to be inducting Jay-Z and Carole King in 2021? What the fuck is up with that. It’s an insult to Carole King, frankly. It’s like the Nobel Peace Prize now. A collective joke. But I digress…
Hear Joni Mitchell, Linda Ronstadt, Carole King, Shawn Colvin, Norah Jones, Carly Simon, Phoebe Snow, Valerie Carter, Sarah McLachlan, Melissa Etheridge, and more!
Tune in. Turn on. Drop out. It’s Sunday. And it’s Valentines Day. Time to kick back and enjoy the sounds. All free. No credit card. No membership. No personal informaton required.
