Welcome to our usual raucus Saturday here in The Mermaid Lounge. While I entertain the entitled consumer masses, The Music Mermaid will be seeing to your listening pleasure. We’ve got our usual great Saturday line-up.
Here’s your Saturday line-up:
11:00 a.m. The Flying Burrito Brothers Live at The Palomino, Hollywood, CA, June 8, 1969 NEW!
We love this band here in The Mermaid Lounge, and this particular live recording is new to us here. Gram Parsons didn’t live long enough to really reach his potential, but we believe it was limitless and that he left us a great musical legacy.
3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Linda Ronstadt, The Stone Poneys & Friends, Volume III FINAL AIRING!
We say farewell to this album after today’s airing, the final Stone Poneys album before Linda Ronstadt launches into her meteoric career and her decade reign as the Queen of Rock. Tomorrow, we’ll have a brand new album for you.
7:00 p.m. In The Spotlight: Booker T & The MGs
Yes, they were the Stax Records house band, but they were so much more than that. They were a force in the music world and, once you pay attention to them, it’s easy to see why Tom Petty and his bandmates were so smitten with them.
10:00 p.m. LIVE DEAD! The Grateful Dead Live at The Shoreline Amphitheatre, Mountainview, CA, June 21, 1989 NEW!
Another new offering from the ultimate jam band here. We aired a previous Dead show several months ago from this venue, but this one is brandy new. Enjoy.
I can hear the birds outside my window this morning, the sun is already up, and our friends from Europe, Asia and beyond are already tuned in. Why don’t you join them? We’re not-for-profit. we accept no advertising to clog up your listening pleasure with a hard sell from our sponsors (we don’t have any), and we don’t employ chatty DJs who talk endlessly about inane subjects. We just play music and toss in a few station ID comments a day. And oh, by the way, we play music nobody else plays all day long. That’s it. Today should be the day.
