The Beatles at High Noon, Donovan In The Spotlight, and Badfinger Live Later, Wednesday, May 19, 2021

Good Morning, Musicologists. Yes, it’s still morning. We’re a little later than usual kicking this off but every now and then what is known as “the real world” takes center stage. We try to keep that to a minimum here.

We’ve got some early Beatles up for you at noon!

Here’s today’s line-up:

12:00 p.m. The Beatles: The Early Years

Yes, The early years, when the Fab Four was in its infancy. But even back then, they were a force, no matter what the morons listening to the garbage being made today tell you. They were a really tight band even back then, and were doing things that nobody else was doing. We’ve even got some alternative takes and unreleased music in this particular playlist, so enjoy.

4:00 p.m. In The Spotlight: The Music of Donovan

Surely one of the most iconic musicians of the sixties right here. Sometimes he falls under the radar, but he shouldn’t. We used to call him Mr. Cosmic when we were yunguns.

8:00 p.m. Badfinger Live at The Cowtown Ballroom, Kansas City, Missouri, April 7, 1972

Perhaps the only bona fide star power band ever signed by The Beatles for Apple Records, Badfinger made some great power pop music in its day. Betrayed by their manager and royally fucked over, their ending was a sad one with two members committing suicide. But they left us a great musical legacy and we love them here in The Mermaid Lounge.

Tune us in, folks. You have no idea what you’re missing until you give us a shot. No foolin’ around here. We’re the real deal.
