Welcome to the weekend in The Mermaid Lounge, where we have our usual slate of programming for your listening pleasure. We’ll kick it all off at 10:00 a.m. this morning.
Here’s today’s line-up:
11:00 a.m. Money, Honey: Various Artists
Music about money, earned, stolen, alimony, in every form imaginable, from The Beatles, Van Morrison, Tom Waits, Pink Floyd, Warren Zevon, J.J. Cale, Slim Harpo, Albert King, Tom Rush, Chuck Berry, The Traveling Wilburys, and more.
3:00 p.m. The Beatles: The Let It Be Sessions, Rare and Unreleased
By the time Let It Be rolled around, the Fab Four were barely talking to each other or recording together. But the Let It Be sessions prove that The Beatles were all about the music at the end of the day, and at the end of their run.
6:00 p.m. In The Spotlight: The Music of Paul Simon
Paul Simon is legend in music. He spent years with his pal Art Garfunkel, singing together for the first time at the age of sixteen. Together they made some of the best music of the sixties and seventies. Then Simon continued on as a solo artist doing the same. We feature the music of Paul Simon today, both with and without Art Garfunkel.
10:00 p.m. Live Dead! The Grateful Dead Live at The Providence Civic Center, Providence, Rhode Island, September 7, 1987 NEW!
Another (brand new) marathon session from The Dead for your listening pleasure. No two shows ever sound the same, even when they are on the same tour.
