Happy May Day, Music Lovers! Today’s big event from The Mermaid Lounge is the launch of our newest long-player called A Little Bit O’Soul. It’s also your last chance to hear our Album of The Week.
Here’s today’s line-up:
11:00 a.m. Album of The Week: Damn The Torpedoes by Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers FINAL AIRING!
The final airing of this most excellent album. The album that established Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers as serious players and kicked off four decades of spectacular music. Tomorrow when you wake up, there will be a new selection.
3:00 p.m. A Little Bit O’Soul: Various Artists NEW!
We’ve been working on this one and it’s finally time for launching. It starts today at 3:00 p.m. and runs for just over five hours featuring Aretha Franklin, Ray Charles, Irma Thomas, Marvin Gaye, Al Green, Bill Withers, Stevie Wonder, Jimmy Ruffin, The Drifters, The Temptations, The Four Tops, The Supremes, The Ronettes, Curtis Mayfield, Etta James, Otis Redding, and more!
10:00 p.m. LIVE DEAD! The Grateful Dead Live at the Closing of Winterland, December 3, 1978
This is our first repeat performance, and we thought it was only fitting to choose this one for May Day airing. Next week, we’ll resume new material.
As always, it’s a busy Saturday, but a wonderful day to get the true flavor of #BecomeUngovernable Radio. We’re free and not-for-profit. And we’ve got some of the best music on the planet and a novel approach to delivering it. Join your friends from Italy, The Netherlands, France, Germany, the UK, The Faroe Islands, Spain, the Russian Federation…all tuned in already this morning. Did I mention we’re also 24/7?
