Good Morning, Kids! We’re reached mid-week in The Mermaid Lounge and we’ve got light programming and lots of Open Stream today, highlighted by a brand new live performance by Hot Tuna!
Here’s your mid-week line-up:
11:00 a.m. Hot Tuna Live at The Fillmore West, San Francisco, CA, March 4, 1988 NEW!
This great band was originally intended as an acoustic spinoff from the Jefferson Airplane, but it soon became the full-time project of its founders, Jack Cassady and Jorma Kaukonen. They became a popular road band in the seventies, and eventually mixed in some electric. One of the best in our book.
4:00 p.m. In The Spotlight: The Music of Dusty Springfield
Rolling Stone has called Mary Isobel Catherine Bernadette O’Brien, also known as Dusty Springfield, Britain’s “best ever pop singer,” and we totally agree. She embodies the descripton ‘blue-eyed soul’ building a career on a deep voice that emulated the Motown sound that she loved. Those who overlook Dusty are quite remiss. Her career was in full throttle for forty years, from the 50’s to the 90’s.
Great day to tuna (I meant this; not a typo) us in. I know, it was a bad attempt, but it’s early and it worked for me. We’re not-for-profit. We’re in it for the music every single day. Give us a shot, and help us spread the word.
