Good Morning, Kids! It’s another Saturday in The Mermaid Lounge and we’ve got some great programming again. Saturday is one of our heaviest programming days, but we don’t get carried away. There is plenty of wide Open Stream on tap every day here.
Here’s today’s line-up:
11:00 a.m. In The Spotlight: The Music of Roy Orbison
Yesterday was Roy Orbison’s birthday. The man was a musical marvel with that great 5-octave voice. It should also be noted that he was a former member of the greatest supergroup in popular music history, The Traveling Wilburys. In honor of Roy, we put him In the Spotlight today.
4:00 p.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of The Temptations
We have two spotlights today as we also focus on The Temptations, one of the greatest R & B bands of the sixties and seventies. We’ll consider this a warm-up for the introduction of next weekend’s launch of our new long-playing A Little Bit O’Soul playlist (May 1).
7:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Medicine At Midnight by Foo Fighters
Today we also offer up the final airing of the Foo Fighters’ newest album, Medicine At Midnight. Tomorrow when you roll out of bed, we’ll have a brand new selection for you.
10:00 p.m. Live Dead! The Grateful Dead Live at The World Amphitheatre, Tinley Park, Illinois, July 21, 1990 NEW!
Of course, we have our usual airing of Live Dead, this one was the opening of a three-night stand at The World Amphitheatre in Tinley Park. More magic from one of the world’s greatest road bands.
