Monday Rolls Around Again With John Prine In The Spotlight, Clapton’s Baloise Sessions, and The Beatles, May 17, 2021

It’s the beginning of another challenging work week here, and we in The Mermaid Lounge are up to the challenge with some great programming.

We’ve got The Beatles in their transformation state up at 7:00 p.m.

Here’s your line-up:

11:00 a.m. In The Spotlight: The Music of John Prine

We lost John Prine’s voice early in the COVID-19 battle. He had already been fighting cancer and just couldn’t withstand another illness on top of it. But John Prine left behind a great musical legacy, his compositions a combination of wit and introspection. Today we put him In the Spotlight where he belongs.

3:00 p.m. Eric Clapton Live in Basel, Switzerland: The Baloise Sessions, November 13-14, 2013

Eric Clapton’s Baloise Session performances from 2013 in Basel, Switzerland. Joining him on stage in his band were Andy Fairweather-Low (vocals, guitar), Paul Carrack (vocals, keyboard), Henry Spinetti (drums), Chris Stainton (keyboard), and Michelle John and Sharon White (backing vocals).

7:00 p.m. The Beatles: The Transformative Years

Along with Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, The Beatles are our reigning house band. We work very hard to try not to overplay either band or show favoritism, and this is difficult. However, sometimes I feel like we are remiss in playing them also. Tonight’s playlist covers songs from Rubber Soul through Magical Mystery Tour.

This selection is a great kick off to the work week. Join your friends from around the world in The Mermaid Lounge. This morning we have listeners from Italy, Japan, the Faroe Islands, the Netherlands, Spain, the Russian Federation and others, Were free 24/7 and we play the best music on the planet.
